    Introduction:
    :Shift: is a fun, almost addicting platformer game from Armor Games.
    The point of the game is to get threw the doors to clear the level.
    But there are obstacles, How to do get past them? Shift.

    Basics:

    :Shift: Plays like a simple platformer game on the iPhone/iPod touch with left and right arrows to control movement.
    While moving tap the opposite arrow to jump.
    But.. what makes the game unique from other platformer games is that it has a option to flip the world up side down.
    In other words.. shift. using three different methods*.
    • Tilt the iPhone/iPod Touch left or right
    • Tilt the iPhone forward or backwards.
    • Press the shift button.
    * Changing methods can be found in the Options menu on the main menu.

    Summary:
    :Shift: is a one of a kind platformer that you can easily get addicted to due to the challenging levels and one of a kind gameplay.
    Though the movement of the character if stale sometimes and jumping is weird, it does not truly over all effect the game.
    This game keeps me occupied for hours and is a must buy in my books.
    Pros:
    • One of a kind game play.
    • Easy to use controls.
    • Autosave feature so the game picks up if the app closes.
    • Tons of levels.
    • Shifting..
    • Also found online here.

    Cons:
    • Somewhat stale movement and jumping.
    • Does not have a timer on each level.

    Good Review, not too in detail though.
    Why is "Cons" got a Strikethrough?
