Take note, everybody: Icycle: On Thin Ice is a game to watch out for.

Icycle-On Thin Ice-3I was able to get some hands-on time with Chillingo’s new bicycling platformer recently, and wow is it gorgeous. Icycle is a story about a lonely naked man named Dennis as he pedals his bicycle through a frozen world while he searches for love. I’m totally not embellishing that. You’ll be guiding Dennis by way of fairly standard touch controls: arrow buttons to move, jump, and tap jump again to glide using an umbrella. Gathered ice cubes from each level can be used to buy new gear for Dennis – some cosmetic like new hats, others more utilitarian such as new bicycles or umbrellas – and most stages have at least one or two secrets to uncover.

What really makes Icycle one to watch, however, is the art style. The game uses a very beautiful and stylized vector look, and features some very impressive animations and designs that really stand out. I mean just look at those screens. Look at them.

Icycle: On Thin Ice should be out in December and will sell for $0.99. The initial release will feature 24 levels (each with challenges to complete and secrets to uncover), with more content planned for future updates.

Ms. Splosion Man Celebrates a New Update with a Sale!

Posted by on August 2nd, 2013
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

It’s only natural that something as volatile as an anthropomorphic explosion would act spontaneously. Hence the out-of-nowhere sale Ms. Splosion Man is currently having.

You can grab this fantastic platformer for 1/3 of the original asking price (down to $0.99 from $2.99), but that’s not all. Twisted Pixel has also upgraded an optimized the heck out of it with:

- Support for cross-device savegames via iCloud
- Adjusted in-game economy
- Updated UI artwork
- Numerous bug fixes and optimizations

Seriously, if you haven’t tried Ms. Splosion Man yet, you’re just about out of excuses at this point.
