This has to be the game with the most impressive
art style I have ever seen. Deeply impressed me!

Wow.... Now that, is art. Wonderful visuals and the gameplay looks so elegant. Superb background music. It looks like Limbo mixed with World of Goo and a sprinkle of Sword and Sworcery.

That looks awesome! Nice art style although, this and Feed Me Oil is a bit questionable.

Limbo is my favourite game of the last 12 months and Sword & Sworcery and World of Goo are two of the best games on the entire App Store.

With these three perhaps influencing Contra Jour directly I'm soooo looking forward to this. I remember simply aching for Infinity Blade, Rage and Real Racing 2 this time last year, but I've never wanted any iOS game more than I want Contra Jour right now.

It's beautiful, it's challenging, it's clever and it's my MOST WANTED GAME EVER!!!!

Man, you gotta love Chillingo!

Hey guys,
I'm Mokus the developer of CJ.
Thank you for your words - it's amazing that you like the game so much. There is nothing that motivates me more than kind words and positive feedback.

Yes it will be available for iPad, iPhone, iPod touch. It also supports retina.
It works even on older devices but some effects are turned off for 3G and the first iPhone.
It will be also a universal app so you buy it only once for all of your devices.
