Icy Venture is a puzzle game made by a Jordanian game developer Hazim AlHanbal about a cube of ice trying to find the best way to reach his home and collect as many snowflakes as he can.
What makes this game stand out is its simplicity of controls: just one touch to freeze your cube (with the moving platform or rotatory platform) and one touch to unfreeze it. More mechanics are introduced with time which increases the game control complexity, like gravity switch mechanics and fans which require touching them to be used.
I think the game will be better if the developer focuses on the single-touch mechanic (freeze/unfreeze) and tries to exploit it more, such as with different environmental elements that are always running or timed.
In the end the game is still fun and worth trying out. The game is out for iOS devices with a lite version and full version.
