    Cling Thing is a great experience for a buck. From its vibrant graphics to its pleasant music to its perfect controls to its increasingly challenging puzzles, Cling Thing offers the kind of experience that makes gaming on iOS a joy.

    Cling Thing looks like a bargain bucket greatest hits compilation of other games on the App Store, but don't let that put you off.

    Cling Thing may be vanilla, but vanilla's only ubiquitous because it's bloomin' delicious. [Sept 2013, p.81]

    Cling Thing won’t blow you away with originality. But it’s hard to dispute that this is a solid, well made little title that pays homage to a lot of other titles, and makes something of its own out of it all. Anyone who’s a fan of this kind of game will definitely get a lot of value out of Cling Thing.

    Featuring solid physics and cool level design, Cling Thing does a lot right without doing anything exceptional.

    While Cling Thing may have a lot of heart in its quest to become the next big thing in cutesy physics-puzzling, the game is really hurting in terms of its charm. With bland, forgettable characters and boring level designs, not to mention controls and physics that do more to harm the playing experience than do it any good, this is probably one game that’s best left stuck on the back of your chair like a stale piece of gum.
