After receiving a modicum of success on Facebook, a whimsical strategy game called Icy Tower has crossed the casual gaming path to the iPhone. It's available now on the App Store.
In the game, you control a character who must jump to the top of a series of towers. You bounce off walls, land on platforms, and avoid enemies on your upward quests to achieve the highest score possible. Everything is presented in a cartoony, very colorful aesthetic - it's a casual, addictive game, just like everything other semi-popular game on Facebook.
At $2.99, it's a bit more expensive than most iPhone games, but there's a free demo available to let you take it for a test drive.
