Crow

Today's game is one of the most beautiful games I've seen on the iPhone/iPad recently. It actually even received reviews like this: "Crow Could Be the Greatest iPhone Game I’ve Played" and "This is the best game I've ever played on iOS".

Crow is a story-driven action-adventure for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. In this game you are a crow and you fly above a gorgeous countryside, as the story unfolds. There are different parts to the game, sometimes you just control the crow as it flies and need to find trinkets and gems that are scattered across the land. At other times you have to fight different enemies you run across, each time the battle is a bit different as you unlock more powers.

When you first launch Crow you immediately see that this game is uniquely beautiful. The overall atmosphere created by the stunning graphics and sounds is really what make this game interesting. I guess that and the combination of being able to fly like a bird which is a childhood fantasy we all share. Just controlling the bird as you fly above the beautiful 3d world is fun.

Crow is not another casual game, the storyline seems a bit more complex at first glace, although you can just skip through all the plot points and just get to the flying and fighting. Its scary atmosphere from a bird's eye view is not even close to Angry Birds style games.

Just check out this trailer to see some of the great graphics and sound:

When is the last time you saw a trailer like that for an iPhone app?

Crow is more expensive than usual, it costs $4.99, and is a Universal app for both your iPhone and iPad.
