Oh man, a game from the devs of one of my all-time favorite iOS games, Blood Roofs. Looks like I know what I'll be doing at 11 tonight. Wonder how big it is installed.

And the award for "Most Amazing Menu in iOS History" goes to...*drumroll* Gamesmold!

Apart from that...how does the game hold up? Well, over the years I'm sure we've established the fact that Gamesmold makes great games, but I think this is quite easily their magnum opus. Whether it's the visuals, how easily the game controls, the actual sunlight mechanic (bloody hell, it must've have taken forever to get that right), the level and insane character design and the incredible, incredible music...just the perfect blend. Love this!!!

Sorry, I'd love to stick around and talk about the game, but I have to sleep. Work consumes me. (Yes, I'm working on a Sunday) Unless EP completely misses this (he won't) and doesn't post impressions, just know that this is a no-brainer.


Everyone's favorite chamber of death, doom and decomposition.
