If you are a fan of quirky games with a lot of style then get ready for Hi, How Are You. Players must play as a small frog like creature as you try to rescue your true love after she was kidnapped by the devil. You must progress through a series of levels by hopping on each of the green tiles to turn them into a solid colour. You must navigate each map and avoid any dangers as fast as you can to earn different trophies and move on to the next stage.

Players use the iPhone's tilting capabilities in order to move your character and can tap on the screen in order to jump. Players will also need to use the two stop buttons to wait for lifts or passing dangers in order to continue the level.

The hand drawn, 3D rendered visuals will stand out almost immediately. And while they may seem a little crude, they are extremely well done. The sound quality is top notch and the content helps immerse players into this surreal environment. But players can use their iPod if they want a more familiar audio track. The game features one main game mode, but levels can be repeated for a better score and a chance to unlock more in game achievements.

This is a great game to have a look at if you want something new and unusual to play. The gameplay is strangely alluring and levels becoming increasingly harder; incorporating puzzles into the otherwise simple gameplay. This is definitely a game that will leave a lasting impression on players; whether it’s a good or bad, it’s one you won’t soon forget.
