Looking for a fun way to kill some free time? You’ll definitely want to check out Twisted Adventures: Little Red Riding Hood, a stunningly beautiful game with familiar feel.

Play as the titular character, you job is to traverse the woods on the way way to grandma’s house. Along your way you’ll want to collect flowers and apples. Also, keep an eye out for the furry bunnies; you need to rescue those guys!

Mechanics really straightforward; tap to jump. You’ll be hopping from one round, spinning platform to the next and you’re always moving forward. It’s not rocket science but it does get harder – and fast. Bats and other shadow animals will try to stop you so you need to think on your toes.

I simply love the graphics and game play of this one and think you’ll appreciate it. The music reminds me of something out of a Danny Elfman score (Beetlejuice or Edward Scissorhands) and really adds a layer of atmosphere. The the whole game spans 60 levels with a goal to collect and free as many items as possible. If you’re fan of trying to achieve three stars or perfect scores you’ll find high replay value here.

There’s a free version of the game in the Google Play Store which is supported by ads. Don’t be a penny pincher, spring for the paid version. It’s on sale right now for $.99 and is well worth the money.
