Players try to beat their own scores and compete on global high score tables. This entry came from drMikeyStudios.

Most Innovative App: Level

Designed specifically for the Sony Tablet P, Level is a puzzle game that takes advantage of the tablets two-screen layout. The vertical levels of the game move individually—if the player is on the top level/screen, the bottom level remains static (and vice versa). To collect items and move through the map, the player must align the levels correctly, lining up jump-tubes, circuits, doors, etc. As the game progresses, maps become more complex, requiring more time and thought to solve.
