What the press say:
"Gorilla Gondola is a fast, mesmerizing action-puzzler among the best on the iOS. [...] The worlds themselves are composed of hand painted, multilayered masterpieces [...] I would be remiss not to mention the soundtrack as its truly exceptional." - HUGEGAMER.COM, 9/10
"Ive used the phrase 'drop dead gorgeous' to describe iOS games before, but now I realize I should have reserved that description for this one Gorilla Gondola is the best looking 2D title on the platform right now, hands-down. [...] controls are perfectly suited to the platform and its tilt physics feel just right." - IFANZINE.COM, 4/5

"Gorilla Gondola is serious fun [...] the superb graphics, innovative controls and music you won't get out of your head make the game a surprise hit - and maybe a future iOS classic." - IPLAYAPPS.DE, 8/10
"Gorilla Gondola adds a fun variation to the runner-mechanic, sort of a 'swipe & jump' game. The graphics show high production values, and you won't get the 80s-pop title track with its "Go, go, go, go, Gorilla!" vocal out of your head." - GAMERSGLOBAL.DE, App of the week
"Gorilla Gondola is a quality release, with responsive controls, good graphics and energetic music. The gameplay feels fresh and there's definitely skill involved with bouncing the gondola through the tight spots." - TOUCHARCADE.COM
"The game convinces us due to its innovative scenario and the well-conceived controls. [..] Gorilla Gondola is a different kind of game, which makes it well worth the money." - APPFLUSSREINIGER.DE, 3/3
"The Electric Pixel Factory have created an intriguing title here, and one that I think you should all try out." - ALLABOUTWINDOWSPHONE.COM, 81/100

Had a look at the video but I'm just wondering how Gorilla dies - not clearing obstacles in time or what? Just wondering where the challenge comes into it beyond gaining multipliers.

Graphics look lush and gameplay rather fun but I do want some modicum of difficulty to be there.

Hello Zendorphin,

just realised we never mentioned dying anywhere - but you are right, being pushed off the screen by not clearing obstacles costs you a life, as does hitting instant-death objects like mines and lasers in later levels.

Trust us, Gorilla Gondola gets quite tricky as you progress. If you can clear the last two stages Orbital and Factory you're doing rather well indeed. This is not one of those type of games where you eventually end up killing yourself out of boredom
In fact we're thinking about putting an expert-playthrough video of some of the more hard-as-nails parts of the game on YouTube in the next few weeks, so stay tuned.

We'd like to think we've created a game with a rather balanced difficulty curve, easy to pick up but once you truly master the mechanics your score and progress throughout the game will truly take off.

Hope you will enjoy it
