    One of the finest games we've had the privilege of experiencing. It joins Tiny Wings, Angry Birds and Cut the Rope as a handful of quality titles you must absolutely have on either your iPhone or iPad.

    Whale Trail contains all the components of a hit iOS game – colorful visuals, catchy music, a cute main character, and gameplay that's easy for anybody to pick up but hard to master. But somehow, it manages to not feel forced or contrived.

    Whale Trail is one of the best "endless run" on the App Store, thanks to the fantastic mix between atmosphere and gameplay. A great level design and the particular soundtrack complete an already splendid picture.

    Within the overcrowded genre of "endless runners" Whale Trail stands out thanks to its psychedelic artdesign, while the mechanics are similar to the likes of Tiny Wings or Jetpack Joyride.

    'Been there, done that' isn't quite fair to say of a game like Whale Trail. Although it may seem like yet another endless title, its stellar level of presentation; clever level layout variation; and simple control scheme make it worth checking out, even if it doesn't last forever.

    Be mindful, though, that beyond the visuals, the game offers little new, so don't expect to still be playing it in a year's time.

    Impressive, delirious and addictive. I love this game. It seems like a kid book with the main xarachter and the environment. Animations ate also impressive and final crazy characters strange but a good goal to bit previous score. A must have ^^ Expand

    Relaxing music, nice graphics and simple to play. I love this game, one-button side-scrolling game, I would suggest it for kids (4+). If I would have to put the game in one word, I would use mesmerising. Expand

    Whale Trail is a fun and addictive side scroller. During my time playing it, however, I had one question. Why dies this game exist? There are no other games like it. Expand
