Okay I love the game. I played the original on the computer, and bought it as soon as it came out on iOS. I loved it, maxed everything out, it ran so smooth, beautiful artwork, and overall one of the best games I ever bought... on iOS. On Android it is disappointing. I am running it on a Galaxy S7 edge, and the optimisation is HORRID. It is a great game, and most of the levels run smooth, but on some of the more difficult levels I am lucky to get 15 frames a second. There is also random clipping through some of the pillars, and some of the exploding doughnuts don't explode when you land on them in sweet dreams (jumping quickly as soon as you touch it). I'm sure these bugs will get fixed, and preformace will be better, but not worth $3 since it came out on iOS at .99¢. All in all, it's a good game, but since I paid $3 I expected it to preform much better than it does now. If you do buy, remember it won't work perfectly, but if you enjoy platformers it is a wonderful skill based game.
The first time I played this game is when I was still using iOS as my primary mobile platform. When I made the switch to Android several years ago, Icycle: On Thin Ice was one of the first games I tried to add to my account. Sadly it was not ported to Android yet, but now that it is I must say it is a welcome sight that I was happy to purchase. The gameplay, grapics, and controls are excellent. However, I cannot play Icycle for too long without getting stuttering, dropping framerates, and semi-responsive controls. I'm uncertain if it is a caching error, or if it follows it's predecessor that didn't utilize GPUs, but it has it's share of issues none the less. I am currently running this on my LG V20 which is more than capable of running demanding games.The game is still fairly new and I'm sure it will recieve improvements, but for the time being I cannot give it the five-star rating I know it can reach. I will revise my review (as I'm sure others will) when the performance issues are addressed. I will also note that the game could benifet from some HID controller support. It isn't unplayable without one, but would be a nice addition.
I hope I'm not the only one who bought this
It's awesome ... Have you ever kissed a fish
