  • Summary: THE INCIDENT is a fast-paced, retro-style action game. Run, dodge and jump your way to safety as an angry rain of just about everything in the world falls and builds a mountain of platforms for you to climb up, up… up to the source of it all: the cause of THE INCIDENT.

    is easy to pick up but hard to master. It's a totally new gameplay concept and it's perhaps TOO addictive. It's loaded with power-ups, power-downs (d'oh!) and collectables. Try to beat the game, then try to unlock all the achievements. No one said getting 500 coins would be easy.

    THE INCIDENT is a universal app that runs great on any iPhone or iPod touch, and on iPad. Buy once, play anywhere!

    It seems inappropriate to label any game a 'classic' on such a novel platform, but if such a term is allowed, then The Incident qualifies emphatically.
  2. Feb 5, 2011
    The Incident is quirky without trying too hard, and its core conceit is a concept that's both wholly original and immediately engaging.
  3. Feb 5, 2011
    The Incident is an incredibly cool game, delivering addictive arcade platforming wrapped in classic packaging. It's a budget beauty!
  4. Feb 5, 2011
    Set over seven beautiful retro-style levels, half the fun of The Incident is in seeing what craziness can be thrown your way next while humming along to the giddy chiptune.
  5. Feb 5, 2011
    The Incident is a prime example of how the best iPhone games are simple ideas, perfectly executed.
  6. Feb 5, 2011
    The Incident is unquestionably worthy of purchase and deserves not to be buried in the pile.
  7. 60
    Nice graphics but sadly a bit shallow and to difficult to control.
