My knowledge of geometry doesn't really extend beyond successfully negotiating a square wooden peg into the correct hole on a toddler's toy table, so it was with trepidation that I first started up Edge Extended.
The less numerically challenged among you might think that a puzzle-platformer based on the thinky principles of navigating a box through a hole filled arena would be straightforward.
But Edge Extended takes those principles and runs with them, offering up some stark challenges along with some palpable frustrations.
The aim in Edge Extended is to get your flashing neon cuboid from one end of each isometric block-built stage to the other. Each of the game's stage's is suspended in a void of empty space, meaning one wrong move and you're hexahedron will fall off the edge and you'll have to try that bit of the stage again.
Edge Extended might sorely miss the map that graced its smartphone original, but it's still a wonderful example of logic mixed with incentivised tension and some inspired level design
