Of course retro junkies will no doubt find room for subtle strategy, and use patience to their advantage in the climb to maddeningly high tallies. Even then, in the hands of less committed players, you'd be hard pressed not to get at least 1001 fun-filled attempts out of this one. I'd buy that for a dollar - and so should you.
1001 Attempts is simple, yet fun and addictive, and that's all I really want out of my mobile games. That, and the opportunity to gloat over being better than others, so it's a must-download at the free price or even at the exorbitant sum of $0.99.
1001 Attempts is compulsive hardcore gaming at its finest - an intoxicating mix of arcade style and twitchy modern platforming condensed into minute-long bursts of frantic escapes and desperate reactions. A brilliant and beguilingly simple hardcore platformer, 1001 Attempts delivers more excitement in its bite sized blasts than most games could ever dream of.
