    The fast-paced action and cartoony graphics make this game a winner. But what else would you expect from Chillingo?

    I'm absolutely hooked to Knights of the Round Cable. It's a cheap pun, and I'm going to use it! Few games pull me in like this, and find me so engrossed that I lose track of time. I absolutely love this game.

    Featuring terrific rope mechanics, upgradeable perks, mini-objectives, and an endless high-scoring format, Knights of the Round Cable provides a fun distraction that tests both your timing and your patience.

    Knights of the Round Cable is probably one of the best mobile games currently ; a simple yet completely addictive gameplay revolving around basic physics mechanics, and a perfectly well crafted touch control combined for a single purpose : getting the most gems out of a level by revolving around attach points with your little knight and his cable. Complete with in-app purchase for lazy gamers, it's one of those "Zone-Enabling" titles.

    Knights of the Round Cable is a charming game with a unique mechanic, and it's well worth your time and money. Just be warned: if you get it, you might start questioning where all of your free time has gone.

    Knights of the Round Cable succeeds in consuming hours upon hours of time, thanks to its addictive "just one more go" hook.

    Knights of the Round Cable brings aspects of Dancing Dots' former IGF finalist but re-works the gameplay to work in a more casual tone. It pays off for the better, allowing for an experience that feels better on a mobile platform.

    Knights of the Round Cable is a great game with some awesome mechanics. I found it incredibly addicting, and I had a blast with it. Some players might find that it gets a little repetitive, but people who enjoyed going for high scores in games like Tiny Wings and Temple Run will absolutely love this game.

    To fill the dead time the Focus Home Interactive title is more than valid, and the interesting approach can satisfy those looking for a lighthearted but not superficial fun. Definitely worth a try.

    Knights of the Round Cable is sort of like swinging on a swing set; fun to do, but you're not really going anywhere.

    It's not going to win any prizes for in-depth gameplay, but Knights of the Round Cable is a lot of fun and up there with some of the best endless games out there. If you're a score attack fan then it's well worth checking out.

    Knights of the Round Cable doesn't offer too much beyond a great pun for its title. The swinging lacks emphasis and once you've played the game once, beyond the need to upgrade or aim for the high score, there's nothing to keep you playing.

    An ├╝ber-casual time-waster which - like a knight tethered to a peg - ultimately fails to go anywhere, no matter how hard it tries.

    The game can become a bit of a grind as more challenging missions may require multiple attempts, but the core swinging mechanic remains fun throughout. Knights of the Round Cable captures the feel of an easy to learn, difficult to master game with controls perfectly suited for touch devices.
