    One Tap Hero is an intelligent game that does what it claims, blending the genre of platform and puzzler well. Once the player gets past slight control issues there is definitely a great game to be had.

    What's impressive is just how many interesting levels and puzzles the developers have created with such simple and admittedly limited controls. Across 80 levels, One Tap Hero never feels like it's running out of steam, with the exciting promise of more to come in future updates.

    If you've tired of physics puzzlers and fancy a platforming experience with just a little more bite, then One Tap Hero deserves to go straight to the top of your download list. It's precision platforming at its best, with enough charm and ingenuity to win over even the most jaded mobile gamer.

    Whilst its intriguing central conceit isn't always perfectly implemented, One Tap Hero is enough fun that you can look past the occasional frustration.

    It's cute, challenging, it's more than a little addictive, and unless you lack thumbs, it's easy to get into. We'd love to see more levels added and some additional challenges, and then it'd be a no-brainer to call One Tap Hero a flawless victory.

    Takes iOS platforming and "one button" gaming in a direction I'm amazed no-one tries to do more often in touch screen gaming.

    A pretty great little game. It has a couple of annoying control issues that popped up now and then, but it is well worth checking out. It has a great difficulty curve that will appeal to both casual and hardcore gamers alike.

    Great level design and elegant control style. Simple controlling style while deep content. It is a very enjoyable experience. After 5 minutes playing, you sure will be addictive to this simple yet fun controlling style. Story is simple, and cartoon is cute. If the plot is more meaningful with mechanism, this game will be perfect. Full Review »
