Cordy is one of the better platformers we’ve seen, which makes the game’s sneaky way of getting you to pay so maddening. Certainly, we have no problem with the price — $4.99 is fair for the quality the developers have put into the game — but it’s much too easy to download the game and not realize you’re merely getting a trial, as that’s not made glaringly clear in the app store. And the customization options (ranging from 99 cents to $2.99) are a greedy swipe at people’s wallet.

As for the game itself, it’s simply terrific: A good throwback to the glory days of Sonic with wonderful graphics, terrific pacing, and a difficulty level that’s top notch. (Beating a level is easy — but getting all the extras on each one isn’t.) It’s not revolutionary, but it’s a lot of fun.
