I had Hoped this game would spare me some time. An average game means I'm not driven to write an exuberant review, therefore granting me time to play the best games out there. Unfortunately for my fingers, this is one of the best games out there, and i am compelled to tell you why. First off, I'm a fan of platformers, so my favoritism of the genre may be suspect. The sheer number of great platformers in the app store means a game must be pretty darn good to stand out from the crowd. Domino stands proudly on the shoulders of Rolando, Gomi, and Soosiz, and while Domino is similar to other ball rolling platformers, it's simplicity, speed, and love make it the funnest I've played. The thrill I got from turning a domino into a saw-blade propelled sled was exhilarating, and the smoothness of those actions is a testament of the time and love put into the games design. From a visual/ technical standpoint, the simplicity of an indie game is apparent in the visuals, however, they are charming and outshined by the great physics at work through every aspect of gameplay. There are also stars to collect in each level that open up new character skins, another sign of the love involved. I don't think the game is as long as something like Rolando, but there is surely enough content for a buck or two. I hope the dev puts out a video to satiate the non believers out there, because i truly believe this is a gem in the rough, and one that should be played by anyone/everyone.
