Gene Review

Gene Review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Gene's use of physical mutation to control a player's abilities is a refreshing touch, while its throw-back visual art-style will likely see the average platformer fan satisfied, but the way in which mutations are implemented might become irritating to some.

Createrria Review

Rather than arriving as a game itself, Createrria is aiming to give gamers the necessary tools to create their very own platformers. The premise is great, but it could do with a few more creation and customisation options.

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.
