"No, Trambo, move! You stunted little berk," I scream at the iPad.
Trambo ignores me and is crushed to death by the infinite blackness of the death ray that has dogged his every step.
"Trambo, I hate you so much."
Trambo doesn't reply, though. He just reappears, all pudgy and pixely, back at the top of the level. He's proud to serve, proud to try and save the human race from the terrible death ray.
I still hate him, though. Jerk.
Trambo is a platforming game without a 'jump' button. It's an evil concoction of sudden deaths and joyous triumphs. It's about shaving fractions of a second off your time to make sure the wall of black death doesn't consume you. And it's quite good.
A game so packed full of hate and anguish it's almost impossible not to recommend it. Trambo is a wonderful slice of rock-hard rage
