@3 I agree even though others dont. Its a cut and paste 'collect shit and get to the end with 3 stars - game ' Incredibly pretentious.

Just because a game has a different art style it's "incredibly pretentious" ?

Anyway, like I said previously, people debating getting or not a game for 2 Euro/pound/dollar sake, do it because it became a hobby in itself, no one moans if a retail game is 31 or 33 Eur/pond/dollar. Mobile gaming is more about price than the games itself.

@7 No because the game claims it innovates and cross references art with video games, and claims to be the first to step between the two, this to me is a nonsense statement.

Contre juer also means to transcend daylight. Which in its self is a pretentious statement, When all it does is simply create a shadow.

Its hardly a different art style , it mimics ooze, tentacles , limbo etc.

Its also 69 on iphone. I also notice you haven't actually played it so I cant quite understand why you're defending me calling it pretentious.

@8 The title means ‘against light’ referring to the game’s stark and Limbo-esque art style. It makes strong use of contrasting colors, a stylistic element we don’t see much on Windows Phone

@8 - Errr... I have it on iPod and it costed me 2.39 Euro, so I don't understand how you claim it's .99 (.69 in other money). Not going to even get into you saying I didn't play the game...

@9 Contre-jour is French for 'against daylight' . its Hardly the bold statement it claims of which I mentioned, therefore I feel its pretentious.

We dont see much of that on windows phone , no. What we do see much of are physics based puzzle games with 3 star level ratings with collectables, 4 times the price of the same game on the iphone.

Calm down guys we can all share different opinions and still coexist!

The "other money" was a joke. Chill on the name calling.

I will check the title out. Surprised by comments without an explanation. If it is bad it would have been nice to read why you thought it was bad. It makes me think it is just trolling to post a few words that equate to negativity on the net. I don't expect a review, but if you are going to put the effort to "submit" a comment, well make your opinion worth reading...Unless you feel your opinion is not worth reading?

@16 Looks like #15 doesn't have much to say haha and it looks like he joined just to post that comment without so much as an explanation! I like the game after trying the demo and would atleast recommend the demo to try it out... nothing ventured nothing gained

I have this on my Ipad and paid same amount when it came out first. Needless to say that version is better in every way, but not everyone has Ipad, so I would recommend getting this if you like short levels with 3 start rating....

@evil Monkey- Yeah-I noticed he just joined, made a comment, and became vapor. Oh well.
I looked at the user reviews and mostly 4-5 stars are given so it must be better than average. I will trial it. I have an ipad, but I play more casual games on the phone due to conviencence and achievements. The ipad is usually being used to browse the internet or free applications-educational for the kids. BTW-thank you for the opinion Vinny

Arron114 just trolls forums looking to pick fights with everyone. Still living the teenage dream of causing drama all the time!

@20 Windows Phone game. The site really needs to differentiate them better.

@20 This is a windowsphone(WP7) title and they aren't open to the same 400g rule which I think is stupid as both xbla and WP7 titles are both basically arcade titles

lmao its funny that you act like you know what you are talking about when you simply have no idea! contre-jour doesnt mean against daylight. Its a term use in like photography. Its when a powerful source light ie the sun is behind what you are taking a pic of, thats the effect it creates.
ie if you take a pic of someone with the sun behind them, they will appear all dark, thats the "contre jour" effect.

I just finished the last achievement of the game. For those who like puzzles, it's a great game. For comparison I demoed Tentacles, but didn't buy it because it didn't seem to require enough thought. Contre Jour makes your mind work. Up there with Ilo Milo and Max and the Magic Marker for me.

(who really cares what the name means? it sounds cool).
