App description: Take it for a spin...
You have been sent on a quest by the wise old sage. The evil Gants have stolen her magical Shims and it's up to you, a little 'tisu, to get them back.

Equipped with your wheel and the mystical power of the Chibs, embark on a fantastical adventure across the worlds of Canoo, Groundedwoods and Dreamsky!

FANTASY LAND
The world of SpinTrip is filled with weird and wonderful creatures, you are a little blue creature called 'tisu, the evil enemy are the Gants, and the magical creatures that power your wheel are the Chibs.

CHIB POWER
With the wheel you can collect Chibs, strange little creatures that possess magic powers. These powers will be added to your wheel allowqing you to jump higher, blast your enemies, smash through ice and more!

HAVE AN ADVENTURE
Travel from the icy tundra and waterworld through caves, deep woods and hills into the sky world.

RIGHT CHIB FOR THE RIGHT TIME
Carefully choose what Chibs to use and when to use them. Remember, the path taken through the game will also influence your final success.

"SpinTrip is a delightful platformer aimed at kids and the young at heart; far from a completely casual experience, it provides some challenge to experienced gamers while still being easy enough for less skilled hands." AppSpy

Hmmmm !

I love platformers so this looked like the type of game for me. Its very smooth, very nice graphics, very polished, to me reminds me slightly of Sonic (when you spin) as youre obviously in a circle

The 'difference' here is that you pick up these 'aliens' for different powers, eg one makes you jump higher, another makes you fire, another makes you break through an ice barrier.

I've only had a few goes but basically i keep forgetting what icon does what as its not that obvious. So if i see a 'baddie' i have to remember to press the icon to fire. I had a quick go this morning and the icons do 'flash' so perhaps thats a type of hint.

I actually wish it was just the controls/jump/fire and none of this 'press the correct alien' for the weapon/jumping ability etc. I can see why theyve tried to do something different but i think it would have worked better with just the standard controls, you shoot at ice and it breaks, double tap jump and you go higher etc, instead of all these aliens you 'bind' with one at a time.

So the jury for me is still out on this one

Dude

Bought and played for about 15 mins. Bought it for my kids but I like these games too so gave it a quick spin. And........my kids like it from what they played and I myself dig it as well. Will know better after a longer play session but hey my first impression is a good one.

If the dev happens to be following this thread, please change that icon. It is hideous, and it forces me to hide the game in a subfolder.
