8.5 Gamespot

"Intelligent, evocative, and strangely moving."
9/10 - Pocket Gamer

"A unique experience that really shines"
4.5/5 - Apple'n'apps

"Its not quite like anything else in the App Store... a must buy"
4.5/5 - AppAdvice

When The Corporation causes all the suns to go out, a small boy named Inco and his strange friend, Helios, go on a galaxy-spanning quest to light the skies once more.

As they explore the planets they discover Grapples, Jetpacks, Teleports, Gravity Beams and other strange machines.

With its atmospheric ambient soundtrack and striking visuals, Incoboto is a moody, challenging, adventure-puzzler in the spirit of Portal and Ico.

I am very pleased too see this. It was the first game that I eagerly anticipated and downloaded when I got an IPad this year. I am very happy to be able to play on my iphone now as well. It is quite amazing - as much an immersive experience as a game.

Honestly the only thing bothering me is the "incobotomini" under the app icon on our devices. Fluttermind, why not just have "mini" on the bottom of the icon much like on the App Store, with "Incoboto" under the icon?

This has to be one of the best iOS games I've played this year. It's so damn good. Also, it works perfectly on the 4th gen. iPod and looks great as well.

Honestly? Because I'm trying to keep the two games as separate in people's minds as I can...

...even though they're (nearly) identical.

The truth is, I didn't know if people were going to just HATE it on iPhone, and kill my AppStore review scores for the iPad version stone dead. People's reviews matter a lot to me, so that seemed like a scary prospect.

Speaking of which - please leave a review if you like it!

Why anyone would hate it? I mean the iPad version got universal acclaim and those of us who didn't have access to it (as apparent from this thread) have been anxiously waiting to play Incoboto for quite a while now. I know I have, and believe me when I say it was worth it. Heck, going by the rest of the comments in this thread, it seems like everyone's loving it too.

EDIT: Oh, and just for clarification...I didn't mean change the actual app's name to Incoboto. Incoboto Mini is perfect. I was just referring to what it's called on our devices. But you probably already knew that and this edit is making me look like an idiot.

Well, the game was originally designed as a biiiiig screen experience and so my brain kept screaming 'people will hate it on an iPhone!' I have now punished my brain by putting it into a jar of formaldehyde for the weekend, although that does make typing quite difae'oihg\erg/'oh'\bd\fih

Serves it right! Haha, nah...it's just really great to finally be able to play Incoboto. Who says it can't be a big screen experience...just on a tiny screen?

Since I don't have an iPad, I'm soooo happy about this release.
But the icon. Text in an icon never works. Never. And two lines of text...
