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

    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.

    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.

    While Volcano Escape is nothing original, its level of polish makes it a standout amongst the competition.

    Volcano Escape often runs into trouble when you want to mix shooting, jumping and firing.

    A vertical platformer with a few fun twists, even if the imprecise controls make us want to cast it away.

    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.

    While Volcano Escape has flaws, it's still a simple jumping game at heart and the challenge of beating high scores may make it worth going back to. It's one of the best looking games of its type, just not the best in terms of gameplay.

    Decent graphics and a fun, unique idea aren't enough to keep Volcano Escape above the rising flow of lava and you're likely to be burned by this challenging endless vertical platformer.

    Great graphics aren't enough to save endless jumping game Volcano Escape from floaty controls.

    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.
