Contre Jour is a beautifully somber puzzler, now available on Android

Contre Jour is one game that instantly catches the eye with its beautiful, gloomy environment, but up until now the puzzle has only been available on iOS. Today, it arrives on Android in all of its glory, and with a price tag of $1.99.

The game itself is very much like Cut the Rope, but the environment is radically different than the cartoony world of Om Nom. Here you have monsters and tentacles in a calm gray-neon world filled with soft piano music.

We’d even say Contre Jour has soothes you. Sadly, and quite inexplicably, Chilingo has set the price at $1.99, which is double the one dollar cost on the App Store, but it is what it is.

Oh PhoneArena, shoddy reporting again. Contra Jour has been available for Windows Phone for several months, and it's gorgeous!

this article is for it's availability on Android, it's really not some kind of biased conspiracy because they mentioned it's been available on iOS and made a price comparison. that's really more about the game developer than iOS. there's been enough of insinuating bias behavior by Phone Arena's Editors for no good reason and they've expressed how sick they are of it so just quit it.

And the rating is already below 4 stars because of people who expect it to be perfectly optimized right from the get go. Smh. Am interested, not sure if enough to buy but maybe...
