The Incident: Whatʼs New In 1.2

The Incident (our previous review) is undoubtedly one of the funnest and most addicting games on the App Store today. The retro styled smash hit became immediately popular with everybody, young and old. This past couple of weeks Iʼve had the pleasure of testing out the newest update to The Incident.

One of the biggest complaints with the original version was the lack of an endless mode. Well, rest assured your wishes were heard and thereʼs a new mode called “Endless Nightfall.” Complete with awesome new music from Cabel Sasser himself, Endless nightfall has some awesome additions to an already awesome game.

To start with, thereʼs a new balloon. The bunny ear balloon is rather dangerous, in that it doubles the speed at which items fall for a small amount of time. While they look like powerups, donʼt be deceived. These things are dangerous.

Thereʼs also a new recharge bar for when you bubble out of a trap. Itʼs a nice visual feature, and it saves me a lot of trouble freaking out shaking my iPad when stuck immediately after bubbling. It happens more than you would think.

Along with the new mode, is a new tweet screen, and a completely new feature. The ability to control the game on your iPad with an iPod Touch or iPhone as a controller. I havenʼt personally be able to test this, but it seems like an interesting way to play the game. It also makes playing on an iPad less of a hassle, as the large screen can be a bit cumbersome when trying to make quick moves. The smaller devices screen shows the next item to drop, which is also a very nice addition, as I can prepare myself slightly beforetime if the item is a larger than normal item, or likely to fall in on top of something that will block me in.

If you get hurt, the dreaming Frank clenches his teeth.

All in all, the 1.2 update is a great update to a great game. It continues in the tradition of amazing attention to detail and the perfectionist attitude that makes the team at Big Bucket such amazing developers. Stay tuned for a giveaway once 1.2 is approved and on the App Store. The Incident 1.1 is currently available in the App Store at $1.99.
