Do you remember when consoles were defined by their flagship platform games? There could have been no SNES without Mario, no Mega Drive without Sonic, and no Amiga without, er, Zool.
Now, I'm not suggesting that the gelatinous alien goo ball at the heart of Wimp: Who Stole My Panties is the iPhone's answer to Mario, but he's probably the closest we've come yet to finding a platforming hero to headline the App Store.
He stars in a physics-heavy platformer, and he's on the hunt for his stolen pants. In each level you get to the end by bouncing over a few pits, avoiding the odd trap, and rescuing your y-fronts before escaping down a tube.
Wimp is a charming, colourful platformer with inventive levels and great physics-led puzzles. It controls well and is bursting at the seams with content. An easy recommendation
