The Incident might sound like Jersey Shore‘s “The Situation‘s” little brother, but it is really an addictive retro-style game for your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad. In the Big Bucket Software game you play Frank Solway, our hero, as the world comes crashing down all around him. We’re not really sure why, but a multifarious array of clutter starts to fall from the sky and you must work quickly to stay on top of the ever growing pile.
You can’t run away, you can only tilt to dodge, tap to jump and avoid the falling evidence of man’s existence on earth and try to collect power-ups and bonuses along the way. Not everything you can collect will help you, though—there are a few power-downs as well.No Flash? No problem—click here!»
The Incident hit the iTunes Apps Store earlier this year and I liked it then, but I really like it now that the recent update has allowed me to use my iPhone as a controller while I watch the action on the iPad. Big Bucket also added a new mode called “Endless Nightfall” that I have yet to check out.1 They also added Game Center functionality for you competitive types.
Like most great and fun games, it’s quite simple in concept but rich in fun factor. And at $1.99 US, it’s a great value.
