  • Circle-to-eliminate mechanic is simple and compulsive
  • No, seriously - it's really compulsive. I'm playing it right now.


  • One-note gameplay and odd art style might grate for some


Helix is such a simple concept that it feels like it's already been around for years, but manages to offer a frantic and fresh arcade experience.

Helix is a game about twists and turns. I don't mean it has a surprise M. Night Shyamalan ending or a section where you relive your failed driving test a third, excruciating time.

No - in Helix, you are literally spinning your avatar around enemies to eliminate them from the screen. Take a look at our video review to find out whether this simple mechanic won us over.
