Icycle – A must have for Christmas

by on December 6, 2013

Mesmerizing and poetic side-scrolling adventure.

Most platform sidescrollers are only offering two dimensions to the player. This is not the case with Icycle. Here you are treated to a beautiful story of finding love in a harsh environment.


You take the role of a young man trying to find his big love. With on the way you have your different bicycles and you can pimp out the character with for example novelty slippers.

The level design in Icycle is both smart and quirky, some levels beautifully resembles Beatles yellow submarine and other psychedelic expressions. It is a shame that sometimes the levels move too fast for you to bike around and enjoy the creative design.
The only downside of the game is that it is not offering enough variations in difficulty and that it is quite short.

This game is easy to pick up and easy to see the unique in the most common of all stories.
