THE INCIDENT is a fast-paced, retro-style action game. Run, dodge and jump your way to safety as an angry rain of just about everything in the world falls and builds a mountain of platforms for you to climb up, up… up to the source of it all: the cause of THE INCIDENT.

"This iPhone/iPad game is really great - get it! $2. It makes me laugh every time I play it." —John Romero, Designer of Wolfenstein 3D, Doom and Quake.

"A game you pick up quickly, but can't put back down." —Engadget

"Gaming's Most Charming Vision of the Apocalypse" —Gizmodo

"The controls work well, the graphics look cool, it's universal from the get go, and I really dig the whole concept behind the game." —Touch Arcade

"Terrific little indie games like this are what make the iPhone platform really shine." —TUAW

THE INCIDENT is easy to pick up but hard to master. It's a totally new gameplay concept and it's perhaps TOO addictive. It's loaded with power-ups, power-downs (d'oh!) and collectables.

THE INCIDENT is a universal app that runs great on any iPhone or iPod touch, and on iPad. Buy once, play anywhere!

Brilliant fun for on the go and amazingly responsive!

A lot of bigger app devlopers could really learn from this, there's nothing worse than getting an iPhone game to find it doesn't respond quickly to your actions when your tapping or turning. The Incident is not only fun, it's really well made in every way possible.

The only thing I'd love to see is auto-posting to Facebook with height and method of death, and perhaps some joke lines over how you were killed, like in Canabalt

awesomer than an awesome thing that is really awesome

I've never written a review before but this game is just soooo cool in the way that Space 1999 was a cool tv show I just had to tell the masses. If you like all those old games where the game, the music and the graphics were cooler than Doctor Who then this is your game. Otherwise you really need to think about yourself. Buy this game.

Seriously - this game is awesome - did I already say that?

Love it

If I had of rated this game after 1st time playing then would have given 1-2 stars. It grows on you. It's graphics are awesome and is definitely unique. I would love updates with more random stuff falling out of the sky. Works well with your music playing and is one of my most played games on the train to work. Easy pick up put down gameplay.
