An Awesome Puzzle-Platformer
Crap. My first review didn't get through. Oh well. I'll cut to the chase.
This game is really innovative. The base mechanic of sliding the panels of the world around works like a treat. Now add gravity-shifting and switch-flipping that depends on the panels' adjacency to each other to the mix, and you get a pretty mind-bending experience. At first, jumping is a little weird, and Worlds 1 and 2 are a bit slow to introduce new mechanics, but once you get to World 3 the gravity-shifting adds a whole new level of complexity to the types of puzzles available. I'm currently on World 5, and I'm still having a blast.
If you're looking for a puzzle game that utilizes the touch screen and motion-sensing capabilities to their fullest without crowding the screen with silly buttons or introducing baffling controls (you know, like shooters with tilt-based turning), look no further. This game definitely has the chops to be among the best puzzle games of the year.
One of the best iPhone games.
When I play a game on my phone, I don't want the types of games I play on consoles simply replicated for a touch screen with fake buttons slapped on the screen. I want a game that feels like it was truly designed with the iPhone in mind.
Continuity 2 is that game. It probably makes the best use of both the touch screen and the motion sensor that I've seen. These are some great, mind-bending puzzles and later going back and beating the par times for each one is incredibly rewarding. The sound design and music is cool too.
When I bought this for $0.99 I thought it was a steal, and I would have happily paid the current $2.99 if I had known what I was getting. I rarely rate games on iTunes but I had to show my support for this one and I can only hope the developers release more levels.
One of the Best
Pros: Brain bending puzzles, unique gameplay, original concept, simple graphics
Cons: No new levels or sequels yet
Verdict: Get this game now. It is like nothing else on the app store. Very well made and super fun to play
This game is great! I've finished it three coins on every level and near the end it can get very challenging. If you think about it though, it's not impossible. Definitely a very smart puzzle/platformer. Most importantly though, its very fun. The gameplay is so unique and almost reminds me of the matrix or inception with the manipulation of your environment, gravity and trying to get to an exit. There are no enemies here. It makes you think outside the box. One of my all time favorites, right up there with Cut the Rope. I definitely recommend!
