    Its combination of play mechanics from various genres is beautifully executed, its challenge is immense, and it's got just a whole lot of personality.

    Combining dual-stick shooter elements with rise-as-high-as-you-can gameplay, Volcano Escape manages to marry two distinct genres into one exciting adventure.

    I really like the look and feel of Volcano Escape. It's extremely pretty and the time pressure can be fun.

    Volcano Escape by itself is definitely worth the $1.99 its developers are charging for it, but the optional in-app purchases are definitely overpriced. Still, if you don't mind being locked out some of the game's content, you won't miss out on much.

    Volcano Escape has all the making of a great jumper, but its concrete controls and useless corpse-climbing work against its considerable charm.

    Volcano Escape is certainly cute, but it's also clunky and frustrating at times. It's good, but not great. This is one of those titles that feels like it's on the verge of realizing its potential, but it isn't quite there yet.

    At the end of the day, the sloppy controls and other issues prevent Volcano Escape from being a must play, even at $1.99. Cut it loose.
