    Yes, I got frustrated with the game. But aren't all good puzzle games frustrating at times? This is one of the better puzzle games that's been realized on iOS in a while. Check This Could Hurt out.

    A refreshing take on the iOS platformer, This Could Hurt doesn't revolutionise the genre, but it makes a good case for a button-free style of play.

    This Could Hurt isn't quite what we'd been hoping for when it comes to the next generation of iOS platformers. That said, the game still plays great and you could still get at least several hours of enjoyment out of it, just set your expectations accordingly.

    This Could Hurt is pretty brief and pretty challenging, but it's also pretty fun. The 3D isometric graphics are vibrant, and what's more ridiculous than sending a child through a mechanized death course? Players who have a knack for games that require perfect timing will love this one, even if they find themselves finishing the entire game a little quickly.

    This Could Hurt distills platforming to a simple game that may be expensive to master.

    This Could Hurt features the perfect mix of skill and puzzle elements, allowing players to master the gameplay almost immediately, while still creating intense and mind-twisting challenges.

    While light on narrative, This Could Hurt comes with an abundance of 3D platforming goodness that'll challenge players of all skill levels. And with just four worlds to explore, it should evolve over time as the developers figure out new ways to drive us nuts. Worth checking out.

    It is super challenging, yet still simple.

    Featuring a wealth of devious traps, stringent time limits, and an isometric viewpoint that often leaves us wondering where our main character went, This Could Hurt is one of those games you love to hate.

    This Could Hurt is far from a complicated game, but it doesn't need to be. It shows what can be achieved by simplifying a control method and concentrating on intelligent level design and gameplay instead.
