I'm a fan of gaming. �If you're reading this, there's a strong possibility that you are a fan as well. �As fans, we keep our eyes and ears open for games that are coming out in the days, weeks and months ahead. �Sometimes they are delayed, sometimes they are discontinued, and sometimes they disappear and become legend as to when they "may" come out - or at least that's how it feels sometimes.
For me and a few others, Icycle: On Thin Ice
, the sequel to the browser-based, Flash game Icycle
from Damp Gnat
, is one of those games.
Icycle: On Thin Ice (iOS [Reviewed on an iPhone 5])
Developer: Damp Gnat
Release Date: November 27, 2013
MSRP: $0.99 (In-App Purchases Available)
But now with its launch on the Apple App Store, the wait is over and the adventure can begin. �And what an adventure it is.
Taking inspiration from the Art Deco art style and even the artist Magritte
, On Thin Ice
puts you in, at first, the sock hat (because that's all he's wearing) of Dennis -- a hopeless romantic who has fallen into a state of reality that, like the mission statement of the game's developer reads, "tickles the brain and challenges expectations."
Icycle: On Thin Ice
is a beautifully crafted, customizable game that takes you on an adventure unlike any that you�ve seen or expect. �For the price, this game is a bargain if only to look at the artwork for each level, but you�ll find Dennis an instantly-likeable character to pilot through the various obstacles. �Replayability is high thanks to the 80 challenges in the game, and more levels, in the form of �Dreams�, are possibly on the way. �Good luck and stay frosty!
