    Squids is a rarer find than an all-natural Tahitian pearl. From the gameplay to the graphics to the sound, everything here is pitch-perfect. More importantly, it's impossible to come away from the game without wearing a damn idiot grin on your face. It's great.

    SQUIDS is a fantastically fun game with a great, whimsical feel.

    Featuring a charming graphical style, simple slingshot controls, and light RPG elements, Squids is a promising title that's fun for all ages.

    The characters are cute and well designed, the levels are challenging yet not brutal, the music is bright and lively, and flinging the squids around the screen is a ton of fun. And we can all use a bit more of that, right?

    Squids emerges as a turn-based strategy game that delivers on many aspects, but it isn't flawless. The game is unquestionably a beautiful audio/visual experience, but sadly too short to allow it to be savoured as it ought to.

    Squids combines tactics and RPG in a game that has clearly been thought, and crafted with the touch platforms in mind. As a results, it works really well, and the overall quality of the production, visuals, sounds, and gameplay for such a little price make it a real teat for iOS gamers (and later Android ones).

    Squids has a lot of good ideas and can be fun at times, but also tends to feel a bit rough, leading to some frustration.
