Edge has been available for a long time in the App Store, but it is only recently that I decided to buy it. Why? Because it was free, stealing the top place for free apps. Deservedly so: Edge is an awesome puzzle platformer, in the same vein of a classic game like Marble Madness.

In Edge you have to manouever a cube moving in four directions in an isometrically designed level, with holes, moving pieces and bonus points for picking the brightly coloured prisms along the way. The controls are easy: tap where you want to go and release to stop. The cube will roll just like a cube would do, so if your cube inclines too much it will move forward, if it does not, it will roll back in position. Handy if you misclick for a second!

Edge has a huge number of levels, and even a second edition (Edge Extended, which we will review shortly). You can find it occasionally on free sale, but even at its retail price it is a steal: fun, interesting, well crafted. And challenging: you’ll definitely scratch your head (and bite your nails) with some of its levels. One of the truly iPhone classic games.

Also we can’t refrain from giving you an interesting story. A 7-year old loved Edge so much, he started designing levels with Lego. The father found them good and wanted a surprise for his birthday… And the developers created one of the kid’s levels to use in the game. You can read the original story here
