Simple though it may be, Roller Polar's delightfully infuriating twitch core is as compulsive as it is maddening. Well worth a look.

Dev studio Nitrome is making a bit of a name for itself. Landing on our radar last year with the excellently chilly physics puzzler Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage, the team has once again looked to arctic conditions as inspiration for its latest mobile game.

This time its Roller Polar, a twitch game that all about leaping over rocks, trees, birds, and snowmen. Seriously - don't get us started on the snowmen.

Pocket Gamer's Harry Slater explains why you should really consider giving frosty this offering a go.

This looks delightful. Don't know why I haven't downloaded it already. Might be my first game to play next to our Christmas tree after work tonight. Thanks, James!

I'm so glad Nitrome is finally starting to focus on IOS
this is one of the best "tap" games out there and it feels so efortless coming from the studio – can't wait for the next BIG release :)
