I ❤️ Nitrome


Imagine a world in which you buy a game and then don't have ads and in-app purchases constantly shoved down your throat. Seriously, close your eyes and dream. Now, buy a Nitrome game and experience that world. My love for Nitrome aside, Icebreaker is just plain fun, a great mobile puzzler with enough optional challenges to allow the novice to progress and the pro to squeeze some extra value and enjoyment out of this great game. Also, I love the 16-bit aesthetic. The sound design is phenomenal too. Get this game!

I want a refund


I had previously downloaded this app when it was free and played almost all of the levels that come with it, however when I went to re-download it today it said it would cost $6 and I thought “Oh, I guess they added more as a part of this. It was a fun game before and I want to see how it improved.” When I opened the app I was disappointed to find that not only was it the same in pretty much every way, it also requires me to pay not just to use the power ups but also to play any more of the story than I had access to as a free-to-play customer.

Seriously one of the best physics puzzlers out there

I slogged through Angry Birds like the best of us, but to to tell you the truth, it kinda got old. Not so for this gem. It keeps you engaged with unique puzzles, a great sense of humor, and even a little narrative from our Viking friends. And the gorgeous pixel art doesn't hurt a bit. Buy this if you're not cold hearted.
