    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.

    There's something sweet about seeing a simple concept executed well. The Incident is a great game that offers up a fun time with well-crafted retro sensibilities, and it's sure to appeal to a lot of iOS gamers. Download it today.

    The Incident is quirky without trying too hard, and its core conceit is a concept that's both wholly original and immediately engaging.

    It's worth every penny and many more besides - highly recommended.

    If you're up for being engaged, however, The Incident provides more than meets the eye. Why is The Incident happening? Is there any significance to any of this stuff falling from the sky? Did Frank do something wrong, or is this happening to everyone? We may never find answers to these questions, but investigating and speculating is half the fun.

    You'll enjoy this clever platformer, but only in short spurts.

    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.

    It's easy to instantly like The Incident, thanks to its original concept, frantic gameplay and cool visuals: however, the game dramatically lacks content, and the later levels become too much long and monotonous.

    The Incident is a prime example of how the best iPhone games are simple ideas, perfectly executed.

    The Incident has a few flaws, but where else are you going to score a trophy for getting bashed on the head by a pink smart car?

    The Incident is unquestionably worthy of purchase and deserves not to be buried in the pile.

    The Incident won't hold up under marathon sessions, but it proves engaging and challenging in short bursts.

    An amusing game of evasion, The Incident holds little in the way of lasting appeal.

    Nice graphics but sadly a bit shallow and to difficult to control.
