    Wind-Up Knight is a beautiful, propulsive game whose difficulty only makes it that much more fulfilling.

    While Android gamers have already had their fun with Wind-up Knight, iOS gamers finally get their chance to play around with the clockwork protagonist while proving their skill at overcoming numerous platforming hazards one-after-the-other.

    Wind-up Knight is the hardcore answer to those who thought that iOS was mainly a place for children. Your running knight will keep challenging you till the end of the 50+ levels that you have to finish and believe us, you will want to end all of them.

    This game is a perfect blend of well-rounded, bite-sized action that can be picked up and put down comfortably, yet was challenging enough to make me late for work while I had to try just one more level.

    Wind-up Knight is a game easily recommended for being something unique in the world of iOS and a great challenge.

    Punishingly hard for no good reason, turning what could have been a fun reaction-based platform game into a painful memory test.
