In what could be the first of a series of games from developer On5, 'Tiptop: the last march.' is a Lemmings-inspired game that's married with pop-culture to create a challenging and (at times) tongue-in-cheek experience that's hard to put down.
In order to assist your heroes lines can be drawn on to the level, providing a path for them to walk on or as barriers against enemies. Much like other line-drawing games, you're given a limited amount of 'ink' to use with drawn lines only staying active for a limited amount of time, replenishing your ink when they disappear.
The artwork is clever and has hallmarks from the style of later 2D games in the Worms series. On5 has disabled direct iTunes support, but it's easy to understand why with so many great thematic tunes for their levels. There are five campaigns in total to complete, with each one slowly ramping up the challenge with clever obstacles and traps to keep you on your toes and previous levels can be replayed for those after perfect scores. A lack of mid-level checkpoints can get frustrating, especially as one slip of the finger can result in the demise of all your heroes, but trial and error will make most levels easy enough to efficiently complete even if you're short of the perfect score.
Tiptop is a clever way to bring the Lemmings style of gameplay to the iPhone, forcing players to think ahead and plan their actions before frantically driving their heroes off a cliff. A fun and challenging experience for all gamers.
