Hands-on with Lion Pig, where the hero is inexplicably a lion and a pig, and why that's okay

Hands-on with Lion Pig, where the hero is inexplicably a lion and a pig, and why that's okay

Leaving aside the biology of how a pig and a lion might meet, fall in love, and create this curious cross-breed, Lion Pig is a really well made platformer. Its visuals remind me of Master System classics, the animations of the lead character are excellent, and everything is reminiscent of a straightforward but high quality DOS platformer. Take a look. The game's out now if you fancy getting it yourself. [App Store link]…

Skullduggery! will ask you to use your head from October 9th

ClutchPlay Games' new platformer has you rolling a skull around multiple lands across various times, taking on the afterlife with a combination of action puzzle solving and headshots, grabbing treasures, and trying to return home alive. Well... still dead, but less dead than you might be. That bit's a tad confusing.

Hands-on with Pentumble, the fast-paced platformer that sucks (but doesn't suck)

Hands-on with Pentumble, the fast-paced platformer that sucks (but doesn't suck)

Pentumble has you rolling around environments, sticking to walls, hanging upside down off of platforms, zipping around cogs, leaping over hazards, and so on. It's quick, it's tricky, and the controls are spot on. Here's me rocking through some early parts of the game for your viewing pleasure.…


Pyro Jump Review

Review Pinpin Team By Alex Beech, 8 months, 1 week ago
Pyro Jump Review

It's hard not to be instantly attracted to Pyro Jump's premise. The story of a small flame that has fallen in love with an origami princess is an unusual romantic tale, one that can only end in tragedy. But, while Pinpin Team's pinpoint-platformer is endearing, it struggles to live up to its promise. You control all of Pyro Jump's action with a single tap. Touching the screen launches the little flame into the air, propelling him outwards from his current position. Holding the screen…

Retro platformer Super Obstacle Boy leaps onto iPhone and iPad

It doesn't matter if you were born in the '80s or the naughties, Super Obstacle Boy's pixel-art aesthetic will prove instantly familiar. This retro platformer's old-school ethos is not limited to its appearance, though. Instead of a nice, safe tutorial and a few levels of hand-holding, players will be treated to 128 punishing levels filled with spikes, pits, and a host of other blocky dangers. The goal is simple – don't die, reach the end of the stage, and eventually claim back Rescue Girl who has been captured by Dr. Negative. If you jump over to the App Store now you can grab Super Obstacle Boy for just £1.99 / $2.99. However, if you download it and can't get past the…
