SUMMARY: For some reason, things are falling out of the sky and to stay alive, you need to stay on top. The Incident for the iPhone and iPod Touch is an interesting take on older arcade games. Jump onto the never-ending barrage of objects and collect as many powerups as possible.

8-Bit games never really seem to lose their magic with some of the most interesting music written and notoriously difficult gameplay. The iPhone and iPod Touch have seen their fair share of the genre whether it be ports of classic games or some interesting modern takes on the concept.

The Incident is an 8-Bit game that really is carving out a new path for the genre with it’s unique gameplay and graphics. The game really takes most of its design cues from older 8-Bit games but the gameplay comes straight out of many iPhone apps. The object of the game is to climb as high as you can on top of the stuff piling up around you. For some reason, things are falling out of the sky and to stay alive, you need to stay on top.

You do this by tilting your device to dodge and jumping over objects. The game itself is a really simple concept but mastering it and making sure to collect the coins and health as they float up is a different story. The game grew harder and harder with each level unlocked. Overall, the game is definitely worth the small price that you will be paying and is a fun example of modern 8-Bit gaming done right. Definitely check this one out.
