The charming graphics and beautiful ambient soundtrack (now available for purchase on Bandcamp) meld wonderfully with Incoboto's bleak future, and oddly-endearing mixture of melancholy and whimsy. Inco looks like he's having a great time as he reads the messages scrawled in the dirt beside the scattered remains of his people. This compelling dissonance extends to the game's absentee villains, The Corporation, with signs dotting the dead worlds festooned with humorous slogans, suitable for tweeting.

Incoboto is exactly the sort of experience I look for on the iPad. With the latest version of Apple's tablet boasting more power than the current generation consoles, I play a game like this and wonder why that matters.
