The talented Mr Cling

Product: Cling Thing
Format: iPhone, iPad
Genre: Casual, Puzzle
If somebody were to ask you to design the quintessential Chillingo game, you would probably come up with something very close to Cling Thing.
I mean, listen. Cling Thing is a physics-puzzler. It contains a one-eyed monster with long rubbery, sticky tentacles that it can shoot out in several directions at once. You have to use these tentacles to navigate your way through dozens of stages, avoiding hazards and collecting stars.
As you make your way through this already-derivative game new elements are constantly being transplanted in from other games - the portals from Portal, the cannons and rickety structures from Angry Birds, the gravity-inverting power-ups from Cut the Rope.
Cling Thing looks like a bargain bucket greatest hits compilation of other games on the App Store, but don't let that put you off
