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.
