In case you missed it during the holiday, Apple’s free app of the week is now Icycle: On Thin Ice. Released back in late 2013, the game has sold for between $1 and $3, with this being the first time it has ever been available for free on the App Store.
Head below to take a quick look at some gameplay footage and more info on this wacky adventure platformer:
Games and art become one in the masterfully crafted and visually stunning Icycle: On Thin Ice. Play as the naked hero, Dennis, and pedal, jump and glide through each gorgeous and unique level.
Noted for its strange, yet extraordinary art style by reviewers, Icycle is basically your typical addictive platformer. Following the adventures of Dennis in a “beautiful but deadly post-apocalyptic frozen wonderland,” players will traverse through “collapsing cities and fairgrounds, hop over dormant battlefields and explosive wedding cakes, float down dark ravines, through hostile shopping centres and over a skyline of legs.”
