    There are some clever ideas in this otherwise straightforward platform game that enable it to stand out among the crowd and the story adds another enjoyable element to Solarola, as well as pushing the player forward to find out what happens next. While it's not perfect, the level design and bright, beautiful graphics make this game worth checking out if you're a fan of platformers.

    Tragically, the sound design in Solarola is horrendous.

    While it's still an incredibly entertaining game, the world has overtaken SolaRola ever so slightly, and stolen some of the vigour from its platforming.

    With excellent graphics, a comic book art style, and awesome use of the accelerometer, SolaRola is back with a bang.

    SolaRola is a decent little addition to the company's immense portfolio, even if it's a platformer that's more B-status than AAA – not that that's a bad thing.

    It's not bad, it's just okay.

    Perhaps more suited to younger players, Solarola has you playing a rolling alien blob jumping around worlds, avoiding goo, and reaching the level's goal. It lacks that something special, and the sound effects certainly don't help matters.

    One of the very few pre-smartphone games that is still worth playing, even if this new update only does the bare minimum to keep it relevant.

    iOS platformer fans could certainly do worse than to pick up SolaRola, but there are several far more polished and fun examples of the genre available on mobile devices.
