Gamers of today have it easy. Those old enough to recall the unforgiving platformers of the 8- and 16-bit eras will surely agree with this sentiment, and should those same crusty players want to get a taste of the good old days they could do a lot worse than download Spunk and Moxie.
Despite the rather suggestive title, this is actually a cute platform game in which you control a ball of ooze as it propels itself around 30 different levels set across three themed areas.
The ooze moves automatically, with you controlling its jumps. The longer you hold your finger on the screen the higher the leap, and it's possible to rebound your ooze off walls by keeping your digit glued firmly to the display.
Spunk and Moxie may look cute, but it has a difficulty curve which is practically vertical. Seasoned platform veterans will want to test their skills here. For everyone else, however, caution is recommended
