Android App Spotlight: Contre Jour

Contre Jour
Blurring the lines between games and interactive art, Contre Jour welcomes you to a hauntingly beautiful world shaped by the interplay of light and darkness. It is truly a beautiful and wonderful game with a "World of Goo" feel to it.

The game involves to use of your finger to morph the landscape to propel the mysterious creature Petit to safety. To do that, you will also have to pull, swipe, and tap gadgets such as tendrils, air geysers, and pulleys to complete clever puzzles. The sound track is also amazing, set to a poignant orchestrated soundtrack from composer David Ari Leon. Contre Jour is one polished and addictive game.

  • Beautiful visuals that simply will amaze you.
  • Rich, organic and original soundtrack
