App Store: Edge $2.99

Edge is one of those unique and rare games that does everything right! Mobigame has had legal issues with the name last year and this app has been in and out of the App Store as a result. With the legal issues finally resolved, Edge is here to stay!

This game is Qbert meets Labyrinth and we are talking about 110% awesome! You move a cube around the various 48 levels trying to find the exit point. Along the way you collect prisms to increase your speed and once you collect all of the prisms from levels 1-43 you will unlock levels 44-46. The level designs are incredible and there is a lot of interaction with switches and moving platforms. Each level has a really unique feel and become very challenging.

There is a really cool gameplay element called edge time and you use this by partially turning and holding in mid-turn while grasping on moving blocks. The use of edge time is required to complete some of the levels and also doubles as removing time from your overall time. The other interesting gameplay element is where you can move onto a special switch that will shrink your cube. This allows you to move to different areas that you could not otherwise fit into and also climb walls.

The UI design is phenomenal and there are 18 unique music tracks that really fit Edge. The orientation and controls are completely customizable, so this game will play well for everyone. Edge is well worth the price and is in my opinion one of the top 10 best games in the App Store!
