Stop whatever it is you’re doing and download these two games immediately. For a limited time both Tilt to Live [Free] and Skullpogo [Free] have dropped their prices to, well, free. Both games are incredibly fun high scoring games and small enough to download over 3G to boot.
We absolutely loved Tilt to Live in our review, and went on to award it 5 stars for the month of March. If you read our articles in EGM, we also included it in our list of must have iPhone games.
Tilt to Live is at its core, an object-avoidance game wholly utilising the accelerometer of the iPhone or iTouch to maneuver your arrow around the battlefield. I say battlefield, because that’s exactly what is going on here– the dots are out to get you and will stop at nothing. And it is remarkable just how much personality One Man Left have managed to inject into such a straightforward concept. These are certainly no ordinary dots– these perilous periods make a point (ha!) of chasing you around the screen; coalescing into arrows and other shapes then hurling themselves at you at breakneck pace, or circling you like vultures, slowly closing in until it is impossible to escape. Make no mistake, touch even one of the hundreds of dots on screen at once, and you are history.
Tilt to Live has gotten even better since then with an update that added two new awesome game modes as well.
Skullpogo is also a ton of fun, in it you jump on various baddies while riding a pogo stick. There are power-ups, combos, and everything else you need from a high scoring game, and it even has some really great pixel art. We never actually reviewed the game, but we did discuss it during one of our podcasts, and everyone liked it a lot.
So, really, download these games. Now.
