Catch-22 is a very relaxing and frustrating one-button arcade game in which you play against yourself endlessly. You control one of two orbs that go around a Zen-like planet in a beautiful, colorful world with a relaxing and soothing soundtrack to go with it.
By jumping you gather pick-ups needed to score points and evade the other you (YOUR GHOST), who is going in the opposite direction.
When you collect all the pick-ups you’ll switch to the other orb, leaving your previous self to become your ghost and redo all the jumps you did. It’s up to you to avoid your own past jumps with more jumps!
Evade yourself as long as you can, get the highest high-score and compare your skill with players & friends, all over the world!
??? SOUNDS A BIT CONFUSING ???

Can't put it down!
I played this game at IndieCade last weekend as well and bought it when I got home. It is a great concept and great design. It is buggier than most other apps I have though. The music mostly doesn't work unless I put my headphones in. It runs great on my iPad, but is very choppy on my iPhone, which makes it very difficult to play. None of the achievements work on either of my devices. But I'm glad the Game Center leaderboard scores bug was fixed recently, and I hope that means many of these other bugs will be fixed soon too! (I would love to have a high score board in the app too, so my friends/family can play on my iPad and try to beat my scores or something. It would also be nice for my own reference to see my best games, my longest times, highest scores, highest bonus level reached, etc.).
Simply great or simply infuriating.
This is one of those simple, fast paced games, that you will either love or hate. It's vey quick to play and quick to restart when you lose… and you will lose. If you get frustrated by losing a simple game, avoid this of make sure your Apple Care is still active because you are likely to throw your phone.
My only wish is that there was a bit of variety. It feels like the game play could lend itself to a few different modes of play. Maybe we will see some in an update.
Great Game Design, Light on Content
Short and sweet, this is the prefect KIND of game to have on an iPhone- quick to learn and to play, but lasting appeal and difficult to master. Unfortunately, there really is just the one game mode and some achievements- the lack of even different graphic options does make this game seem like a thin (but good) offering. Hopefully the developers add some content in the future, as is still worth the dollar!
