    Great artwork and design blend to make ABOVE an addictive and challenging endless game for everyone to enjoy.
  2. 80
    Though we've seen plenty of similar titles before, ABOVE is much more challenging thanks to the unique (though simple) controls, and the graphics are nothing short of gorgeous.
  3. It's one of the best in the vertical platforming genre, and should keep you entertained for quite some time.
  4. 75
    Above is a good climbing game. You'll love the art style and forgiving bottom of the screen. It doesn't unseat Doodle Jump, but it certainly co-exists with it. Give it a try.
  5. Above is a great game in the one button/one action genre. The simple controls are responsive, and the game is quite addictive.
