Spunk and Moxie

JohnBSpunk and Moxie is a one touch platform game by Chocolate Homunculus that relies on split-second timing and perfect reactions. It's a game of extremely high difficulty and no room for error, as the slightest little mishap will send you back to the beginning of the stage. That may not sound like a terrible punishment, but Spunk and Moxie is about high scores and unlockables, not raw level progression, so anything less than a perfect run is just not satisfactory.

Spunk and MoxieBoth main characters Spunk and Moxie are mobile blobs of goo that slide along the ground at their own speed. All you need to do is tap and hold the screen to control when and for how long they jump. This allows you to hop over gaps, jump small platforms, and squeeze through narrow openings placed so you have to hit them just so. But even more interesting is that holding the screen allows you to wall jump, allowing you to ascend to great heights or even explore gaps precariously close to death-causing pits.

Spunk and Moxie will remind you of the best old school games, especially secret-laden treasure hunts like Donkey Kong Country. The gameplay is fast and challenging, there are so many things to find and achievements to win, and it's easy to get into, all you have to do is tap the screen. The level design couldn't be better, and the visuals are surprisingly sleek with a lot of little bonus animations that will make you grin. All in all, it's a good looking and delightfully difficult action game you'll be eager to sit down and master.

Extra! Tilt Studios is offering a $1,000 cash prize to the first player to get all the stars in the game. Not as easy as it sounds! Full details.

NOTE: This game was played and reviewed on the iPad 3. Game was available in the North American market at the time of publication, but may not be available in other territories. Please see individual app market pages for purchasing info.
