App Of The Week: The Impossible Game

IN SHORT: Bored of iPhone games that you can complete on a long bus journey? Welcome to The Impossible Game, which uses simple shapes to confuse the living daylights out of you. Like many of the best applications, simple is best here. On the surface, this looks so simple it’s almost silly, but it flatters to deceive, and as you watch you shapes move in ways that defy your instructions or ideas frustration reaches boiling point. Keep a cold shower within walking distance!

THE LOWDOWN: Motivated by levels, medals and a strangely compulsive desire to stop your orange block from falling into your black line (it really is that simple), you have to master your timing to get past the challenging sequences that make up ‘The Impossible Game’, and to win the awards that come with a high level of addiction. In truth, the game is poorly explained in the intro; you learn through experience and soon find that it basically comes down to hopping over spikes and making sure that you don’t land on the wrong part of your screen. Which, we’ll admit, sounds rubbish. but it just isn’t, apart from when you’re frustrated to the point of forcibly removing your hair and wishing you’d never downloaded the thing. When you do finally complete a level after several dozen attempts (okay, we admit it, a few hundred attempts), you’ll wonder why you did, but you’ll still play the next one.
