The Thursday Find - Super Sticky Bros

Thursday is upon us again, some of us are voting in a general election, and it's actually stopped raining where I am. Windows are open, shorts are on, so let's get this over and done with quickly so I can go play in the park.

This week's Thursday find might not be the shiniest game on the App Store, but it is an interesting one. And sometimes that counts for a lot more than polish.

As ever you can click on the emboldened name of the game below to download it. But Harry, you're no doubt weeping, you haven't even told us what the game is. Oh yeah, sorry about that. It is, of course...

Super Sticky Bros

Ostensibly this one's a platformer. It's pretty unwieldy when you first start playing, but stick with it and you'll find a game that's got more than a few things going for it.

You've got a few buttons at the bottom of the screen, and you use these to navigate a red blob through a series of increasing challenging, bite-sized levels.

You stick to walls when you're pushing against them, and two taps of the jump button lets you add a second leap after your first. It's all pretty standard stuff. Bounce on bad guys, avoid the spikes.

If it all sounds pretty standard, don't despair. There's an interesting arcade twist to the experience that means you're unlikely to have played much like this one before.

Chuck in a Nitrome-style checkpoint system and an unfathomably large number of levels, and you're left with a game that you're going to play time and time again.

It's not the best looking, it's not the most entertaining, but it's still well worth checking out if you're at a loose end for something to do this weekend.
