    On an iPad Air 2, HOT LAVA has rather poor graphics; think PS1 or "whatever the lower graphics settings a 3D game might possible have". Lots of jaggies, and text is nearly impossible to read too. Gameplay is fine - no issues there - though I was a bit surprised to see multiplayer lobbies.

    Once I attached a GameVice to my phone, I really started to like Hot Lava. It's a playful take on the mechanics from Mirror's Edge, without the gunplay. If you are attaching a controller to your device, it's definitely one to check out.

    I love the excessively long intro video for this! Hit me right in the nostalgia.

    Hahaha, yeah, me too! It was so long I was beginning to get nervous that the screen was going to go to sleep! I was let down a bit by the graphics and gameplay, but the intro deserves to be seen.

    Is anyone else having issues with the poor graphic quality of Hot Lava on the AppleTV?

    Yeah it's shockingly bad. Grainy and jaggy as all heck. I haven't tried a ton of games on TV yet but this is the only one that's been like this.

    Ok thanks for the quick reply! I'm trying to contact them to see if they recommend any actions on our end to resolve the issue or if it's completely on their end.
