Most definitely a game that people could be playing on their next commute. It has the kind of pick-up-and-play gameplay that so many other games strive to achieve, but few perfect. Sly Fox is definitely a game that deserves a place on the homescreen.
Overall, Sly Fox is a novel idea, and I give them props for that, but the poor controls hurt the game a great deal. Still, for gamers looking for something a little different, this might be a great choice.
Sly Fox attempts to break out of the stiff mold that has shaped similar 'physics' puzzlers on the App Store, but a combination of conflicts between the controls and the level designs make it inconsistent in delivering an entertaining challenge.
The game seems ideal for younger children, although they'll likely become frustrated once the easier levels are behind them. Still, if you hanker for a refreshingly different puzzler, we still think you'll get your money's worth from what's on offer.
