Get on your bike and get your kit off in Icycle: On Thin Ice

We've done some funny thing on our iOS devices over the years. We've chucked birds at pigs. We've cut ropes to feed candy to a small green monster. 

However, we've never guided a naked man on a bicycle across an ever-shifting plane of ice and snow. Until now.

You see, this bizarre scenario is precisely what you'll be faced with if you download new puzzle-platformer Icycle: On Thin Ice.

Created as a kind of quasi-sequel to one of developer Damp Gnat's Flash games, Icycle: On Thin Ice comprises a series of gorgeous-looking multi-screen levels.

The aim is to get your nude cyclist across the screen, collecting objects and cash - and (hopefully) picking up some clothes - along the way.

The game is incredibly surreal, both thematically and visually, drawing some inspiration from famous paintings. For example, you'll be peddling across shifting ice floats one minute, then leapfrogging across buildings frozen in mid air the next.

If this barmy creation looks like your cup of tea, then you can download Icycle: On Thin Ice from the App Store for 69p / 99c right now.
