There's a fizz to Twisty Planets. A zesty oomph behind its simple exterior that makes it almost impossible to dislike.
It's thoughtful without ever being overbearing, and fast-paced without ever getting ahead of itself. And from its simple core idea it creates a series of intriguing challenges that beguile and befuddle in equal measure.
At its most basic it's a game about movement. But you're not just shifting Qub, the TV-headed character you're in control of. You're moving the entire world as well, rearranging the ground to solve puzzles.
It's like a three dimensional block-sliding puzzle mixed with a slow-paced platformer. And layered on top of that is the sort of star-grabbing challenges that make mobile gaming so compulsive.
A warm and welcoming puzzling platformer that's as smart as it is fun
