    Thankfully, having long ago lost my need for perfection, I was able to continue ever onward and enjoy the zany story for what it was, moving from colons to brains and many organs between. There is quite a bit to enjoy about Tentacles: Enter the Dolphin, and it has high production values. Just be prepared for some level of frustration.

    Tentacles: Enter the Dolphin is gorgeous, fluid, and easy-to-play but hard to master. It may be a bit repetitive, but it is still lots of fun.

    Controlling a mutant inside the body of a mad scientist with a Dolphin head has never been a more enjoyable gaming experience.

    The controls are marvellously intuitive, as a simple tap launches one of the tentacles to latch onto the walls of whatever gut or organ you are currently navigating. Each tap sends out the next tentacle, creating a surprisingly smooth experience as the creature crawls through passages, often fighting against the current of bodily fluids.

    Touch controls are a perfect fit for this title since all that's required is to poke where the creature needs to attach, and the physics engine that powers it makes it all happen.

    If you're easily intimidated by difficult or frustrating games, you might be better off dosing yourself with acid than playing Tentacles: Enter the Dolphin. But if you like things rough, Tentacles is more than happy to challenge you.

    Delightfully weird, you'll never look at a Petri dish the same way again, or lick one, for that matter. Yummy.

    Tentacles is an original way to create a game: just one tap, and the fate of Lemmy will be in your hands. One of the best Windows Phone games stands tall on the App Store.

    Tentacles: Enter the Dolphin is a bizarre, grotesque game that also happens to be a whole lot of fun.

    It's a journey worth taking, as much as it exposes the horrors of our depths.
