Wow, one of the best freebies I got in a long time. Fantastic puzzler. And one of those games that suffer from a non-retina screen on my iDevice - because of the zoomed out perspective everything is quite pixelated. Apart from that I'm really enjoying this.

Favorites: The Quest Gold + expansions, Mission Europa Collectors Edition, Ascension, Jet Car Stunts 2, Junk Jack X, King of Dragon Pass, Kingturn series, Mecho Wars HD, Mini Dash, Mos Speedrun, Ravenmark, Sonic series, Fall of Angels, Highborn, Solomonís Keep / Boneyard, pixel art games, remakes and ports of classic games.

Thanks for the freebie. Pretty fun puzzle platformer. Makes me want to grab Fez on XBLA.

Fez is completely different than this. But grab it. Now. It's probably the best puzzle platformer I've played (still haven't finished it, but it's sweet).

Rinth Island is a good game that I somehow never got completely into, but I think it came out when my attention was taken by other releases. That said, it's definately worth picking up while it's free and something I look forward to getting back to.

doesn't seem like too big a deal to me...

undo in a puzzle game does take a bit of the challenge out of it.

free again. Shame that this game has to go free to get customers. THe level design in this game is exquisite for a puzzler.

A shame to be sure, especially given the quality, but a really impressive freebie for those who didn't bite when it came out.
