A short Spy Mouse review

Chances are anyone reading this blog must have already played or at least heard of the chart-topping Spy Mouse. Then again chances are just that; chances. I for example tried the thing only yesterday and -to my surprise- was actually blown away by it. Never really though that a $0.99 offering could be this polished, rich, smart and good looking.

Actually, simply watching the short classically animated intro would be enough to convince anyone of the production and aesthetic values of Spy Mouse...

As for the game itself, well, it does play to the iPhone's strengths and is both extremely enjoyable and innovative. You get to trace a path for the spy mouse -agent Squeak to be precise- with your finger, that will allow it to grab the cheese and escape each screen, while avoiding deadly cats and solving easy yet interesting stealth-based puzzles. Levels get progressively more difficult and more varied, the graphics are amazing, the challenges varied, the special levels are more than enough and, well, to cut a long story short, this is one offering you simply can't afford to miss. Besides, all those little touches have to be appreciated by someone...
