Having grown up in the 8 and 16 bit console era, I remember when 2D platform games were all the rage. Nowadays it seems as though even simple platforming romps need to be embellished with the latest 3D graphics in order to be accepted by the masses. Thankfully handheld devices like smartphones have made the 2D platform game “in style” again, and games like Frenzy Pop are taking good advantage of that. The premise is simple, the levels are challenging, and there’s no third dimension to clutter up the fun.
