App Review :Shift: by Armor Games Inc.
:Shift: by Armor Games Inc. is a challenging and unique puzzle game. It will make you think in a new way. You are subject 32763 in an experiment. You just have to find your way out the door on each level. Sounds like a mouse in a maze, right? This maze has one big twist, though. There is a shift button on each side of the screen. If you tap one of these buttons, the black and white areas on the screen swap places. The background color becomes solid ground and the solid ground turns into the background. When this change happens, the screen and your guy on the screen flip over to compensate for the change.
At first, the puzzles seemed impossible. However, I quickly learned to how to take advantage of the shifting property to help maneuver each of the levels. Don’t get me wrong, some of the levels are quite challenging and will take you several tries to conquer. Some even have a row of spikes that creep across the screen after you, limiting the amount of time that you have to complete the level. The controls are simple enough. Tap left or right to move in that direction. Tap both or the center of the screen to jump. For added speed, you can change the way that you tell the app to shift so that you can induce a shift by simply tilting your device. :Shift: is a great new app for those who like a good puzzle.
:Shift: is $0.99 in the iTunes App Store.
