    iBlast Moki was one of our favorite early iDevice releases, mixing sweetly-rough graphics with simple controls and timing-based, bomb-blasting fun. The sequel takes all of these elements, adds in a bunch of new goodness, spit-polishes it to a high sheen, and delivers it in an impressive package.

    Puzzle design is outstanding, with many later instances requiring extremely tight timing to escape certain doom. A dozen GameCenter achievements are available for a bit of replay value, and there is even an achievement for completing the game in one sitting with 5 or fewer deaths, which can be a pretty daunting challenge. This was our first experience with LIMBO and we were pretty blown away.
