Kid Tripp is all about the little things - tiny margins of error and pauses so imperceptibly small that when they happen you don't even notice. It's about finding the rhythm of a level and picking the perfect spots to leap, fire, and sprint.
It's nostalgia and cruelty, simplicity and extreme difficulty, all melded together into a tightly paced blast of 20-second levels that will take you a hundred tries to get right. It's grinning monkeys hurling rocks at you while you navigate a platform that's only big enough to place a single foot on.
And it is, without a doubt, one of the finest platform experiences that the App Store has to offer. Perfectly tailored for touchscreen devices and presented with a loving retro charm that's impossible to dislike, it's a ridiculously entertaining experience that's harsh but never, ever unfair.
A brilliantly well put-together labour of love, Kid Tripp will have you gnashing your teeth and screaming with joy
