Review - With the recent rebirth of Belgian artist Hergé with the blockbuster 3D CGI movie The Adventures of Tintin The Secret of The Unicorn , a number of games were released to ride the wave of the success of the movie.

This iOS release costing only 0,79€ cent is another true bargain which provides moments of genuine wonder and fun for gamers of any age.

Of course, being an iOS release, expectations should always be reasonable but Gameloft really went above and beyond what I would have expected.

Graphically, The Adventures of Tintin can count on beautiful 3D graphics and clever cut-scenes which retrace step-by-step what happens in the movie.

Interestingly, levels include a variety of challenges ranging from platforming action to puzzle-solving to horse-riding and several other activities which actually use your iOS device specific characteristic.

The only thing missing is the attaching and clever sense of humor which pervades Hergé comic books and which has always been the trademark of Tintin characters and universe.

Other than this small imperfection, which in all truth also struck the movie, Tintin on iOS is a very welcome surprise and a game which will sure put you in a good mood for its timeless adventures and light-hearted atmosphere.

Bottom line: at this price, it is worth every cent! 8/10
