Another cool PC port that I can easily recommend assuming the transition is handled well.

It's a physics platformer (obviously) a little like Type Rider and NightSky in that you're spherical and you use that to your advantage in the level-based puzzles. There's a cool twist though where you can change your size on the go which can get you to unreachable places, weigh down platforms and even alter your velocity on slopes. It's pretty cheap too; it's 6.99 on PC so this is a no brainer for me.

Look at that trailer and tell me you don't want to try it. It looks amazingly good! Thanks Pete

While I was watching the trailer I was praying for 60 levels. This game has over 150! I'm spoiled!

I couldn't go wrong with such a high opinion from the best members on TA - thanks! What a great game. Controls seems spot on & love the concept. Played a few levels & LOVED it. Can't wait to spend some time with it.

I wish you could zoom out to see the whole level at any point that you wanted to. I know you get a quick look at the start of a level but I'd like to zoom out & think of my plan. Although maybe that's part of the challenge. It's not a big deal. Just found myself pinching the screen to no avail by habit. The farther I get the happier I am with this game.
