Cliffed is a twitch gaming, race to the bottom style game in which you must simply manoeuvre your character around ledges and rocks faster than the screen moves to catch you. Whatever you do, don't blink, unless you want to get Cliffed.

The controls in Cliffed are very easy to use with the 2 sides of the screen set apart for you to control your character's movement left and right with your thumbs. By double tapping the area, you perform a quick dash which can give you that valuable time you need to make the next gap.

Visually, the game uses simple, cartoony 2D visuals and there are a myriad of characters for you to unlock. However, there is only 1 background for the game where some variation would be nice. The game features a fast paced soundtrack to match the speed of the game and keep your heart racing. For those wanting to avoid more anxiety, you can of course use your iPod music to calm your heart rate while playing.

The game features single player and online multiplayer modes. Single player lets you go as far down the cliff as you can to try for a high score. Multiplayer matches you with any other player wanting to play through the wondrous cloud, thus not requiring friends to own the game.

For a very simple game, Cliffed is actually quite addictive as it gets your adrenaline rushing as you try to make it as far as you can. For those who love fast paced gaming, this will offer some good value, although having some extra backgrounds would be a welcomed addition.
