Undiscovered App #62: Space is Key - Wait, What?

Space Is Key
You're dead. You're dead again. And again. Wait, what's going on?

That's what it's like when you first play today's Undiscovered App. It's called Space Is Key, made by ChrisJeff Games, and it plunges you straight into a retro-pixelated game where you have to guide this sliding block across the screen. But it's not that simple, because along the way, you have to jump over obstacles and time it just right so you clear the hurdles, and sometimes, you need to time the landing just right so you don't smash into an overhead obstacle. But one small touch, and bam! you're dead, and you have to restart the level all over again. Don't worry, because a level is only one screen, and you can die an infinite number of times until you get it just right.

There are over 40 levels at the difficulty level I chose, and I had to die over 500 times just to complete the whole darn thing (at least the background music is enjoyable while you die a hundred deaths trying). Strangely, I couldn't put it down, because each level seemed deceptively simple, and I swore I'd just do the next level before I did something else...

Well, that never happened, and because of that, this gets an honorable mention for the Strangely Addictive Category. Yeah, everyone bandies about the word "addictive," but in reality, most apps are not. This one, though, actually deserves it.

Space Is Key is currently available to download for $0.99 and has an average rating of 4 stars from 225 reviews. We highly recommended this one for a download.
Amazon.com: because today is a great day to finally order that stuff sitting in your shopping cart!
