The game kept me well occupied during long train rides in my recent travels and thus proved to be a great diversion!

At first glance, I Luv Chocolat looked like an intriguing platformer. The screenshots made the game seem bright, colorful and humorous. They reminded me of the Clockwork Knight series on the Sega Saturn. I soon found out my assumptions were wrong and this game is nothing like the great Clockwork Knight titles. Yes the game, made by Zatun, is a platformer; and yes, you can jump around the single-area background while trying to collect various candies and items falling down. The problem with the game is mainly how repetitive it is and how badly the controls are implemented. While I understand the difficulty in making sliding controls work for movement on the iDevice’s small touchscreen, what’s wrong with controls similar to League of Evil’s directional inputs? or even the way the iDevice Ghosts’N Goblins games play? In I Luv Chocolat, I literally couldn’t move left or right an inch half the time playing. Yes, I understand this game was probably in development before League of Evil — but it’s still no excuse to how poor the control execution is.

A new platformer has hit the iPhone called Maxplosion, by Capcom Mobile. The game has already been released in the NZ App Store and should be available everywhere else by
tomorrow or midnight. The game appears to be an explosion-fest with bomb throwing action while also featuring the classic 2d platforming action Capcom is known for. The graphics and art style look great and make the title shine. Lets hope the controls are done well.

A very interesting and innovative platformer called Terava by Julian Raschke just came out of nowhere. The game really showcases the innovative indie spirit with the way the controls have been implemented as well as the art direction of the title. It is also a Universal App.

A surprisingly fun, challenging, and incredibly addicting endless-running platformer came out of nowhere called Gravonaut. The title has been pretty obscure and overshadowed by the onrush of so many high-profile games hitting the App Store before Christmas but if you are a fan of old-school gameplay and graphics as well as enjoy a challenge, do not pass this title up.

Omino, a recently released platformer is a great unofficial replicate of Super Mario Brothers that can be your solution to an alternative until Nintendo decides to, if they ever do, port the popular game to the iDevice. It has bright artwork, great and responsive controls, and the same classic action you would find in Mario from the baddies to the powerups!
