Meet Niko, star of a cute-character platformer for iOS that involves the usual amount of bouncing, running, hopping and collecting things.
The flick-to-jump UI is quite entertaining and not difficult to get to grips with. The pace is slowed down slightly, giving you time to take aim carefully between one leap and the next. If that kind of thing is your bag then it does have some appeal, particularly for younger gamers. I lost interest fairly quickly, but my 9yo son was thoroughly engrossed until he’d finished the six free levels.
That’s right – the first six levels are free, but if you want to continue playing after that, you have to pay two dollars to get the rest of the game.
