It's so very easy for a game to go unnoticed on the App Store. A flood of new games and apps are introduced every day; some are noticed and others, even worthwhile games, find themselves in a upward struggle for exposure. Spout was released mid-September but I didn't learn about till yesterday and I'm happy that I did.

Spout is a simple game with a lot of style. You have to use your thruster to maneuver around and through procedurally generated levels, each one growing more densely populated than the last. Your fragile craft is destroyed in one hit but is agile enough to move through tight gaps with ease. Spout's defining feature is its destructible environments; your thruster blasts through obstacles, allowing you to carve your own path through the levels. The greyscale retro graphics work well here and the particle effect of your thruster is just fun to use and play with. While you can quickly fly through some of the early areas, you definitely have to control your momentum and thrust once the environments get more densely populated. The game also has Game Center leaderboards, for those who enjoy climbing the high score boards.

Spout isn't the deepest game or the prettiest, but it's entertaining, it's fun, and it's a game I'll come back to time and time again when I have time to kill. I'd say that's worth $0.99.
So if it's worth 0.99, it's definitely getting when it's free. Check this game out
