    It’s a bit fiddly on your phone, but guiding Soviet cosmonaut Ivan through lush jungles and forgotten cities is still a lot of fun.

    Little Orpheus' excellent story and charming underground world makes up for the simplicity of its side-scrolling platformer gameplay to create one of the best games on Apple Arcade.

    A compelling story and exceptional soundtrack which is held back only by the frequent flaws of the game type and a shortage of innovative in-game mechanics.

    Little Orpheus sets a new bar in mobile gaming experiences. Its rich, lush world is only surpassed by the fantastic narrative and voice acting and the stellar soundtrack composed by Jessica Curry and Jim Fowler. It does become a little repetitive by the end, but chances are you will already be gripped and engaged with the story, wanting to see how Ivanovich survives the fantastical dangers of this subterranean world.

    Little Orpheus is a great platform adventure with a terrific atmosphere and some very nice graphics, but also a simplistic gameplay that doesn't live up to its huge potential.

    Its humor, coupled with moderately challenging platforming sequences, should appeal to players of all ages who are fond of light escapism.

    Where Little Orpheus differs from its predecessors, and what marks it as a curious mobile game, is that you appreciate it most when you aren’t playing.

    Sprightly platforming action marks a change of pace for The Chinese Room in this bold if brief adventure. [Eurogamer Recommended]
