Customer Reviews

Nice game but crappy ads take up too much room!

I'd rate this one star for the obnoxious ad bubbles which take up a good portion of the screen, even more so if you don't own the HD version but run the regular game in 2X mode on an iPad. The ads appear as colorful bubbles -- definitely out of place in a gorgeous black and white game -- on the main screen, the level selection screen, and in the pause menu! The ad bubble ends up covering the ENTIRE first world selection button! If you pause a level, the ad bubble pops up, very large on the upper left of the screen, in the pause menu too.

Before this update I was thinking of purchasing the HD version for my iPad too, but with these obnoxious, out of place brightly colored ad bubbles everywhere, I'm going to pass and get something else instead.

I'll throw in an extra star for the nice game play, but nothing more until those ads are gone or greatly reduced.

Charming and satisfying

The ads other users complained about have been removed.

Contre Jour strikes a good balance between simplicity and complexity. There are only a few game mechanics, yet the levels are cleverly designed to combine them in inventive ways.

Includes many levels. I've played through 4 of 5 worlds and it hasn't stagnated or worn out its welcome. Recommended.

Artsy and cute

Although the controls can be frustrating, Contre Jour is a stunning game with beautiful music. It falls into the "collect 3 things before reaching the exit" genre but does it with more style than most.

Unfortunately this will probably be the last Chillingo game I purchase. The ads are intrusive and ruin the game's aesthetic. Not in a game I PAID for, please.
