The Impossible Game
It’s like time-wasting on the internet came to your phone
The Impossible Game Review
by on February 3, 2011
We’ve all been to work at some point, right? And inevitably, even if our job is a space pirate or porn director we’re going to have some down time during the day.
The problem is, while we’re supposed to be working still at these times, all it takes is one tiny link to an online game to suddenly realise we’ve spent three hours trying to click our mouse at the right time.
And that’s what this game is about – trying to play something that’s so simple in construction but so maddeningly hard to play. And boy, is it addictive.
The premise couldn’t be easier: tap the screen to make the orange box jump over obstacles. There are two types: triangles that kill you, and black blocks with ravines in the middle… that also kill you.
The timing has to be so exact that you can be as skilled as you like at this game and still have to take over 100 attempts at a level – we know that sounds boring but once you’re involved, there’s no getting out.
It doesn’t have the charm or variety of something like Angry Birds, but it does have a pumping soundtrack and the old ‘easy to learn, a lifetime to master’ aspect that will just keep you coming back time and time and time and time again.
