Soosiz for iPhone review
Gaming on the iPhone is a decidedly hit-and-miss affair, consisting on streaks of genius amidst a mire of mediocrity. Fortunately Soosiz for iPhone is one of those absolute gems that show just how good a game on the iPhone can be.
Ostensibly this is a platform game, and you control a yellow blob with feet and green hair. The aim is to make your way throughout a level picking up coins, and collecting other yellow blobs while hunting for the exit. The other blobs follow you around, and some give you the power to jump higher.
All this would be pretty mundane, were it not for a stroke of genius. The platforms are circular and the whole level rotates in 360 degrees. And each platform has a gravitational pull, so you can jump from one platform to another. When it starts the game mostly involves bouncing around on enemies and making your way from one platform to another; as it progresses it becomes a fiendish puzzle challenge as you hurl yourself from one platform to try and swing into another.
Soosiz for iPhone has some wonderful level design created using circular platforms
This is a wonderful platform game which is a rare case of virtual buttons working on the iPhone. Mostly because the controls are just left, right, and jump. It's one of those rare iPhone games that is great by any standard, and not just when compared to the dross that exists in abundance on the App Store. It's worth 10 times the £1.79 that Touch Foo is charging.
