    Fans of Ninjump and Ninjatown will absolutely want to make Mechanic Panic their next buy. It may be built on the same foundations as these popular vertical jumpers, but it brings enough new to the table to be well worth the purchase for any fan of the genre.

    One of the most fun casual jumping games I have come across. It combines simple controls, a great concept and varied obstacles.

    A simple idea but it's compelling fun. Rushing up through the elevator shaft brings with it just the right level of tension without being infuriating.

    You can cut corners and do the developer a solid by paying for experience points, but you won't feel like you're getting a lesser experience if you don't.
