  • Ketchapp has been on a roll this year, launching quite a few one tap titles, all of them casual free games and all of them addictive. Skyward came under fire a bit, for its styling similar to the one of Monument Valley, but that’s not exactly a bad thing. We review the game below.

    So, we’re dealing with a free title here, tested on the IUNI U2 handset and having the following attributes: simple, addictive and annoying. You are going to control a rotating circle and you have to tap the screen at the right time for it to get attached to an architectural structure, mobile or not. The circle gets smaller and smaller, so you have to hurry and get the tempo right.

    The level design is nice, indeed similar to Monument Valley, but in a more simplistic way. You can unlock new architectural shapes and run into symbols, that make the circle spin faster or slower, or even in reverse. This endless climber features randomly generated buildings, so there’s no strategy or pattern to apply here. You will be going on a vertical line, horizontal or even diagonal trajectory at times.

    The idea is to get as many “steps” as possible and enter the leaderboards, that may or may not have been hacked. There are lots of ads and the game is monotonous but rather fun. We give it an 8 out of 10 and you can download it here.
