Be Together iPad, thumbnail 1
Be Together is, as you might expect, a game about joining two disparate souls together in a brief, heart-warming reunion. Rather than match-making the old-fashioned way, though, you're using simple physics puzzles to push the two blobby, colourful creatures together.

Of course, the path of true love never does run smoothly, so there are plenty of obstacles and problems to overcome before you can join the pudgy stars together.

Physical togetherness

Each level gives you a number of props to use to manoeuvre the lovers together. You might get a banana-shaped platform, for example, that you need to position at the end of a curved ramp to make sure a rolling creature gets enough of a leap to cross a chasm.

IAPs explained
There's no currency in the game, but you can spend a bit of cash to get some extra hints. 69p gets you 20, while £5.49 gets you an infinite amount.

It's unlikely you'll need to spend any money, though, because on the rare occasion you do get stuck it's simple enough to finish the level with no stars and come back to it later.

You can also choose to shell out for all the levels if you don't fancy waiting and working your way through, as well as throwing down some cash to unlock the bonus levels.
As the game progresses things get more fiendish though, with portals, sweets that make you fat and floaty, and little imps who, if unimpeded, will carry you to the top of the level and then drop you back down again in a straight line.

Moving things around the screen is as simple as dragging them with a finger, and a 'reset' button quickly puts your creatures back where they started. It also leaves you a dotted line to see the paths they took last time around so that you can work out where you went wrong.

There are three stars you need to collect to get the highest score on each level, too. They're also used to unlock new levels, so it's worth having another go at something if you only managed to pick up a single star the first time around.

Pulled apart

There are 60 levels to work your way through, as well as several bonus levels that you unlock by finding secret items as you play. There's certainly a decent chunk of content, and it's all good fun, but there's nothing particularly special about the design of each of the stages.

Be Together is enjoyable, and there are some levels that'll have you scratching your head, but too often you'll find the perfect solution straight away, and none of the set-pieces it presents you with is especially memorable.

This is a game that's entertaining while you play it, but - much like a drunken resolution to get out there and meet more people - you'll have forgotten about it come the next morning.

An entertaining little puzzler, Be Together doesn't quite have the style or the ingenuity to be a must-buy

Welcome to the world of in-app purchases, Mr Bez, where the rules are made up and the points don't matter.
