This vaguely reminds me of Journey on the PS3... Might have a look.

I didn't pick it up, but it looks interesting.
The quoted 10 hour game time certainly caught my eye.

Bought it the second I saw a video on YouTube...surprisingly over Spider-Man, which I've been debating all frickin' day.

It's got such an Oddworld vibe too. Can't wait for it to finish downloading.

Default Game Impressions

Incredible, gorgeous, moving...absolute perfection. This may very well be my favorite iOS game ever. That's all I'll say.

Do I have to?

I haven't played Journey on PS3, so if this is similar, idunnolol. That said, take LIMBO's melancholy atmosphere, mix it with a little bit of Oddworld's style and controlling of enemies to do your bidding (well, indirectly at least) and top it all off with perfect use of iOS' biggest strength (the touchscreen) and you've got yourself one hell of a puzzle-platformer.

I don't want to get into details because frankly, it'll ruin the game for you...but believe me when I say that this game is absolutely flawless and damn near unparalleled on iOS. If that "10 hour" quote is for real, that only makes things better...tenfold.

If my seal of approval isn't enough for the regulars on TA to take a $3 plunge, nothing will.

(WARNING: If Gabrien checks this out and complains about button placement on iPad or whatever, don't look at me. >_> This is perfect on iPhone.)
