EDGE, a multi-award-winning platformer from Mobigame, has finally resurfaced on the App Store. Over the past year, Mobigame has been forced to fend off a questionable trademark dispute from Tim Langdell over the name “Edge.” It’s been a long battle, with EDGE appearing and disappearing numerous times, but this time it looks like the victory might be permanent. To quote the press release:
We were not alone during this year, and we thank all of you for all your efforts. Thanks to us ALL the word “edge” is now free to exist on the App Store like on any other marketplace, and games like Mirror’s Edge, Shadow Edge, Killer Edge Racing or Edge by Mobigame can live on our iDevices.
If you haven’t grabbed EDGE yet, you definitely should. EDGE is a platforming game in which you control a colorful cube, attempting to traverse multiple 3D, isometric landscapes. You encounter plenty of puzzles and challenges as you progress. Controls are fluid—you can chose touch- or accelerometer-based controls—and the graphics and music ooze retro goodness. EDGE is a shining example of a great game: it strips away extraneous fluff and leaves you with something pure and beautiful.
To celebrate their successful return to the App Store, Mobigame has placed EDGE on sale for just $0.99, so now’s a great time to grab it. Congratulations, Mobigame!
