A beautiful looking mobile game. I love the silhouette foreground with coloured background. The physics engine in the game work exceptionally well on mobile. Top marks all round! I can’t recommend it enough.
The important foreground interactive objects have been purposely designed with low detail to highlight the incredible art work in the background.

Plug-ins don’t play well with with most mobile browsers, they can be cumbersome for users, and perhaps most importantly, Microsoft itself may not develop a new version of Silverlight beyond the current release.
