Icycle: On Thin Ice is an original mobile platformer in which we navigate the surreal world using a bicycle. The game was prepared by the British studio Damp Gnat and was handed over to users of iOS devices.

The action of the game is set on Earth after a great ice apocalypse. The planet's population has been reduced to one naked miser in a bowler named Dennis, who has only an umbrella and a two-wheeled bicycle at his disposal. Traveling through 40 highly abstract levels, Dennis has to face a variety of traps that require dexterity and the ability to think fast. The difficulty level of the game is quite high, and repeating the same stages many times is not uncommon.

The game world is presented in two dimensions, and our hero can move both forward and backward, as well as up and down. The whole thing is shown with a dynamic camera - we observe our hero's actions once in a large close-up, and after a while in a very broad perspective. Individual levels were made with unusual fantasy, and the graphic style used in the game can evoke associations with cubist Picasso's paintings. The whole is accompanied by a professional soundtrack, perfectly harmonizing with the surreal atmosphere of the game.
