App description: a fabulously compelling physics platformer., Keith Stewart, Hookshot Inc.

It's well designed, clever, and it plays brilliantly. 8/10 Pocket Gamer

The award-winning out of this world puzzle-platformer comes to the App Store!

Houston, we have a bloblem...SolaRola stars Wiz and Waz, the games blob-like gung-ho duo, tasked with bouncing across a number of challenging planets with the ultimate aim of saving the galaxy.

SolaRola for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch has been fully redeveloped to offer players brand new cartoon-style graphics and enjoyable, intuitive touch and tilt-based controls.

Key Features:
Challenging planets to explore and survive
Realistic physics-based gameplay
Touch and tilt-based controls

More about SolaRola:
With each planet inhabited by all manner of enemies and hazards, the player must navigate Wiz and Waz across a number of ill-positioned obstacles including rocks, slime, bombs and trampolines. Both are susceptible to the planets gravity, so items must be strategically placed to guide them past the many obstructions and creatures that patrol the environments. As the game progresses, so the creatures get more aggressive, while the addition of volcanic worlds and razor-sharp hazards are a constant threat to the future of blobkind.

Surprised, yes. But im kinda on-the-fence about this to be really good. Nonetheless, still instabuy for me. SE has always given me satisfaction with each of their titles, (though some less than most) and im sure there is something of an experience to ba had with this.

Game looks fun although I am not much of a platformer person. I think I'll wait until some reviews are in before getting this one. Now if only Square Enix would hurry and release FF: Dimensions...

I remember playing this on my old Nokia phone, nice to see it on the iOS. Although I think old cell-shaded vector graphics fitted the game better...


Waiting for:
Minigore 2: Zombies, Real Racing 3, GTA: Vice City, Touchgrind 2, Badland, Audiosurf...
