Icy Tower 2 has had huge success on both Android and iOS - in fact iTunes says that over 40 million people have played it! The good news for us is that you can pick it up for BlackBerry 10 on all devices. In fact, there are four editions in total in BlackBerry World - Icy Tower Classic, Icy Tower 2, Icy Tower 2 Temple Jump and Icy Tower 2 Zombie jump.
Although I've only played one of them it's clear that they are all of the same concept where your character jumps up the platforms collecting coins and power-ups. Once you have accumulated some cash you can head into the shop to buy items to assist you on your quest. These include power-ups, boosters and hats. Yes, I said hats. I can't see that they do anything apart from look nice!
At the start of each game you'll be prompted to spend your coins on a few boosters - such as Blast Off, which gives you a 200 floor head start. Handy, but it'll cost you 1000 coins.
Control wise there are two options - either touch or tilt. I prefer to tilt on this style of game but it's nice to have the choice. Icy Tower 2 is super colorful and gameplay is fantastic - maybe the best platform game I've played to date. You get some nice variation in terms of the platforms too. Some are normal, some move and some are icy. All in all the game is great on the eye.
All four of the Icy Tower games are priced at £1.50/$1.99 so if you try one and can't get enough you'll have peace of mind that you can get more Icy Tower action. The only downside, and a whole other topic of conversation, is that the game is free on the other platforms.
