Apple Votes Impossible Road One Of The Year’s Best

062-kevin-ng-impossible-road.pngIt’s been quite a year for Impossible Road, the hard-as-nails endless roller, created by Kevin Ng of Pixels On Toast fame.  The game was released to critical acclaim, with 4.5/5, 8.4/10 and  9/10 reviews, as well as Pocket Gamer’s Game Of The Week in the games media.  All of which was followed by a BAFTA Scotland nomination for the Game Of The Year award.

If you’ve not yet played the eerily impossible item, now’s your chance. Impossible Road is very simple.  A monochrome white ball rolls down a twisting metallic striped track.  Your job is to stay on the track as long as possible.  If you can, with very great skill, hit the track a little lower down.  If you miss, you’ll plummet into featureless void.

Impossible Road is also awesome.  You should play it.  You can buy it now and prepare for a twisting, turning trial of dexterity and reaction time.

Impossible Road is a mere £1.49 and has been acclaimed by almost everyone.  You can even gift it to a friend or loved one for Christmas and not only give Santa a hand, but help an indie developer who’s created something awesome…
