    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.

    Tragically, the sound design in Solarola is horrendous.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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