    Contre Jour gets its hooks in you right from the start-- and what beautiful hooks they are.

    Contre Jour HD is a crowning achievement, an app that earned every one of its five stars. Smart, attractive and fun, it's one of the best reasons to own an iPhone or iPad.

    If you're looking for the next gem for smartphones and iPad, it may very well be Contre Jour. This puzzle-game with a poetry twist draws inspirations from Limbo for its visuals, World of Goo for its drops, Portal for its... portals, Cut the Rope for its mechanics combining dexterity and brains. A very nice blend of many different elements that fit together very well.

    Contre Jour ends up being -- despite some small flaws -- a good physics based iOS game. A well thought out game mechanic revolving around manipulating the terrain lies as a solid foundation, and every level completed feels like a small triumph.

    A clever puzzle game with solid mechanics that cements Chillingo's position as one of the iOS heavyweights.

    This game is brilliant. It's nothing like any other game in spite of what some say. It's challenging yet relaxing, never too hard to be enjoyable. Strongly recommended! Full Review »
