The best selling Xbox Live Indie Game comes to iPhone and iPod Touch - it's quite possibly the world's hardest game!

With just one control, tapping the screen to jump, guide your orange square over spikes and jump onto blocks to get to the end of the level. Any mistake will result in instant death and a respawn at the beginning of the level. With an awesome soundtrack synced to the game you’ll quickly become addicted!

Also included is a Practice Mode, allowing you to lay checkpoints along the way. Try and unlock medals throughout the game, including beating the game with no flags. Check out the Stats page, where you can show off to your friends how far you got on Twitter and Facebook!

  • Perfect

    by PSZeroRoxas15

    I played the demo and wanted to play more and I wasn't disappointed. The game is great and challenging. Once I beat the first and xbox level I went on and bought the other levels for an extra $1. Since then I've beaten the second level and am still very addicted to this game.

  • Great Game

    by AndrewBurnham

    I hear people saying not to buy it because it's stupid hard. Honestly, what did you expect downloading a game titled, "The Impossible Game". Keyword Impossible guys. I love this game because it's actually challenging. Most games now adays aren't.

  • Love this game

    by Mr. Barragan

    I actually beat all the levels

  • Fun

    by Hgvjgvhhgvhhge

    This game is very fun and challenging. Suggestion: Add more levels!

  • Great

    by L.J Piazza

    So close to beating all the levels! You are probably on the work of a new level, but if you haven't started yet, I recommend adding s3rl songs. I mostly recommend "Forever" because the level name could be that, and it can really go good with the game. Make the level endless or something, idk. Or make it spin around in circles in the middle of the level.

  • Excellent Game

    by Nickerdoodlebob

    The game is extremely difficult, and for gamers who want a challenge this is a great choice. The music for each level suits them perfectly and drives you to finish it. There are only 5 levels out, though each level is unique and will certainly take you quite some time to finish. When someone's only complaint on a game is that they are craving more levels, the developer has done a good job.

  • How is this so addicting...

    by KrisMcKenna

    This is the game for Iceman. Ice cold, no mistakes. Seriously fun for something so cheap and simple to play.

  • It's cool

    by Tanner goshorn

    Well, it's hard but really fun. I think it just needs more levels and it would be one of my favorites!

  • Great Game

    by Cow go mooooo

    This game is so much better than red spike ball or whatever its called. That game got more credit for copying the impossible game. This game is ver fun though, and is one of my favorite games. It is very challenging and fun.

  • It's fun! But...

    by Kalordnkdjbcx

    This game is pretty addicting and pretty fun but it gets just a tiny bit boring and you kind if get frustrated when u die but I like the practice mode were you can mark

  • Awesome

    by Prettyboy215

    Loved this game on the Xbox console, so I had no choice but to download it on my iphone

  • Music

    by AshMutt

    I absolutely LOVE the game but I LOVE the soundtrack but It makes me sooooo sad to die because the music stops. What i am saying is KEEP THE MUSIC GOING WHEN YOU DIE! And when the song ends...PLAY IT AGAIN! PLEASE i am BEGGING you!


    by Xlilxcruzx305

    Great now it feels right

  • So sweet!

    by Ahihibibi

    by TeddyBear698

  • Very fun but will make you rage

    by Joecool123456

    The game is great but after after a while you will rage

  • Fun, but...

    by BGalero

    I paid $1 for the game, but I didn't realize you have to pay more to get more levels.

  • RAGE

    by Collin Craig

    This game is just like flappy bird you rage too much. Whoever made this game is a total jerk.

  • Fun game, but....

    by Spyguy439

    This game was a lot of fun but I paid for one level? That's a waste! If you are reading this review before buying don't get it until they add more levels!

  • ...

    by Richard Nixonl

    Did it really take that long just to optimise it for the iPhone 5 screen? Make an iPad version.

  • Challenging but monotonous

    by Titoyvale

    Once you master it there is no change in gameplay and becomes boring.

  • This app is my enemy

    by tyshaw31

    Perhaps I should have inferred this from the title, but this game is so frustrating! I would love an easy mode so that I could pass even the first level. I've played that first level upwards of 400 times and it's driving me insane. I currently hate this app. But my suggestion would sure go a long way to improving my outlook on it. Update: There's two levels that come with this app. Two. You can pay again for an additional three. Ridiculous.

    by Shooter143

    Very annoying and frustrating game. If I could do it over, I wouldn't waste the money.


    by EpicT0mb0y


  • No Thanks

    by holy_schnikes_

    To put it simply, this is a game for masochists. Please, do something more productive with your time rather than memorize the levels of an uninventive video game; society will thank you for it.

  • Lame

    by Kelleytr


  • Deleted within first 5 minutes

    by Grusso

    So annoying its not even fun... Just got so boring and annoying... Bad game

  • Gran juego mejor persona

    by LuisMoJaja

    Excelente juego, deberían sacar mas niveles o crear otro juego al estilo retro y muy difícil, es adictivo *-* Pdt : es adictivo jeje

  • Not worth it

    by mich4721562

    Would never spend money to get it

  • DO NOT GET!!!!!!

    by Dman6501

    This game will make u break your phone, I got it on my iPod touch because my friends told me I would break my phone and so after attempt 450 on the first level I just broke my iPod it made me so made( who makes a game this stupid?!)

  • Optimized for... What?

    by Jonah is disapointed

    I thought this game would work again for my iPhone 4, but even with all the updates... Still. Not. Working! Do something!!!

  • Finally!!

    by BEP's fan

    Finally added iPhone 5 support!! Love this game!

  • Read

    by ilikepie3327

    This app needs more levels, you should have more features too like when the music gets intense the orange block you are should get bigger or orange blocks should fall from the sky. I really like this app really addictive

  • Finally!!

    by gogohoffman

    Thank u for finally updating. Can it be optimized for iPad? Any new maps?

  • :)

    by Cris_Elite

    The stars say it all!

  • Finally

    by Lynk Xus

    This game truly deserves 5 golden stars now that it's optimized for the 4" iPhone 5 screen.

  • Love it, except...

    by Moo and Mama

    It's really addicting, I love playing it, I just wish I could listen to my own music while doing so

  • Great game when it works

    by theweirdgoat

    This game always crashes whenever I try to open it, I hear the music and see the title screen, then it crashes. Rarely, I have been able to play this game, and it is very fun, so I hope this gets fixed.

  • Very good

    by Luca Belmonte

    Oh yes!!!! Iphone 5 support

  • Amazing!!!

    by The_Boss171

    Finally, this game was optimized to iPhone 5, just maybe add 1 or 2 new levels!!!!! But other than that just Awesome!!!!

  • Lag

    by FuZZYMoNEY

    There's a small lag in the game that, really when it comes to this game is bad, is interfering with the game, if u could fix this it would be greatly appreciated.

  • Fun

    by Bmoreconnor

    But still annoying

  • Lag

    by MattTheSickest

    It's lagging a bit for me

  • Super fun!

    by Bradley Cooley

    Like i said, super fun but dangerously addictive. only buy if you got lots of time because nobody can eat just one potato chip.

  • Levels

    by Mooomoomooooo75

    Please do some more levels! Also if you do some more level packs please do some songs with the artist s3rl. Please pick one of the 3 song or all of them! First one is: It went. Second one is: Mtc and last one is Pretty Rave Girl.

  • Awesome

    by Kingkev123

    Please make more levels!

  • Yes

    by TheLatinFire

    by Sperdo911


  • Best game ever!

    by WiLd Beanerr

    Finally an update that optimizes the app for iPhone 5 and iPod Touch 5! Great work!

  • Great Game! Challenging, and Fun!

    by SupahMarioX

    What I'd like to be seen put in (if possible) is a challenge mode where all levels of the level pack and original are put into one level. Possibly the hardest thing The Impossible Game could get to. Also, a level designer should be included in which users could share their creations of a track they made themselves that could be more or less challenging to the game's stock levels, and that obviously they would be tested by the user to see if it can be completed before publishing. I doubt custom music could be imported into the custom levels, but if that's possible, I'd love to see that. Maybe even a versus mode where one side of the screen is showing you and the other player you're challenging (either by LAN or possibly worldwide if Game Center support comes into play) is trying to survive the level while trying to keep up with you. If one fails, they lose the match, and your rank increases (if Leaderboard support could be added too!) I'd really want that in the game! I know some things mentioned in this review probably won't be added anytime soon (probably never) but I think this game will improve tremendously in sales, gameplay, and popularity in the App Store if some of these ideas are implemented into the game. Either way, the game is still a great challenging time waster that will keep you hooked until you can beat all the levels that are not only in the game, but in the level pack too. I really think this game could go a long way if it had more attention from the developer. FlukeDude, keep up the great work!

  • Addictive

    by ZGpyroguy

    This game has very catchy music, but it can be annoying to play due to its difficulty. However I do find myself always coming back to play it, and if you can beat all the levels it's nice to show off to your friends. Needs more levels!

  • It's about time!

    by Dakota-X-Costin

    I've been waiting for the iPhone 5 optimization since I first got mine in December 2012! I understand that it must be hard to optimize the app since you have to adjust speed, animations, etc. but I'm glad you guys came around to it! Now I can enjoy it even more! 5/5

  • Awesome

    by manuelsoto5

    Awesome game and all but the new update kinda put the song out of sync

  • Fun but greedy gamemakers

    by 28erfujbdwuhv

    This game is really fun and I beat both levels but why would only 2 levels be included in a paid game?!? You have to pay more to get all the levels and that's just ridiculous I already paid and I only got 2 out of the 5 levels

  • Great game

    by Bobbywaterboy

    Very hard

  • Great, now it's become even greater

    by LethalMinimum

    So I'm sure I, like many, played this game almost non stop and found the lack of iPhone 5 optimization a common annoyance, finally the new update is released and I'm enjoying it more than ever, all that's needed now are more levels, it's not necessary, but it always would be a nice addition.

  • Yay!

    by xMarokk

    Thanks for updating it for the iPhone 5! This game is awesome!

  • First

    by James in the house jk

    I'm first:D

  • Finally!!

    by Horrible....

    Thank you

  • Fantastic game

    by Tamarack6

    Very addicting... Can't stop playing it. Definitely worth the money, especially with the new update for iPhone 5 screens. Love it.

  • Buying Level Pack

    by Abag2000

    It's a good game and all but when i hit buy level pack it crashes

  • Love this game and update

    by Kevin Guenther

    Finally it's about time you make it compatible for iPhone 5

  • Awesome

    by momstheshit

    I was just about to write a few about the screen for iPhone 5s but then you guys fixed it already. You guys are fast but I'd like to ask if you could add some more levels? It's a great game and I'm looking forward to it becoming available on the steam store

  • First

    by MannyV95

    It's a really good game, it may be hard but it kills time on Bart or subways or regardless...Good game

  • Great game.

    by Icefire022

    THANK YOU, for making it iPhone 5 compatible. My favorite game on the 4 and i couldnt play it well on the five. But thats fixed now yah!!

  • Great game even greater

    by Yobym2

    One of my first apps and still addicting! Now even better with iphone 5 optimization. Would be nice of the menus took up the whole screen and you could see obstacles coming from the edge of the screen but much better than seeing black bars on the edges!

  • Good update

    by NaTrOnnn

    This update fixed all the problems. Thank you

  • iPhone 5 optimization?

    by 3ric411

    Yes!! Took forever but Yess!!

  • Exceptional!

    by Shinxanta

    Thank you! I think you guys heard my email and updated the app! You guys are great, keep up the good work!

  • Great time passer

    by Awesomnness

    The game is fun and hard.

  • Good

    by Saulito6277

    Its very fun and addicting but the screen needs to be fixed for ipod 5. And more levels

  • Awesome

    by xSuffer666

    Beat all levels with flags except Heaven, that is just crazy. This game is addicting and awesome!

  • Such a great game! Idea:

    by mr rater 6245

    The game is incredible, but Flukedude, you should make more levels! And give US the ability to create our own and post them and share them! THAT would be incredible.

  • Love it

    by Ferris khalil

    I really like how when ur square jumps it goes with the music. And the music is AMAZING!!!

  • Great but...

    by ipie4fun

    It's a great game, and I love it, but there are a lot of glitches. I've got stuck in the floor using check points and had the orange square replaced by the background before, and even a time where the spikes and platforms were invisible, but this is rare, and it's still a great game.

  • Stupid

    by Jesse4705473267


  • Over rated

    by Bdr110


  • Needs to be updated

    by grckd636

    The app needs to be updated to support the larger screen sizes of new devices such as the iPhone 5 and 5th generation iPod touch

  • Almost

    by Rokijkjnjkhjhbjhghgghvgfy

    This would be the best game of all time if the iPad had its own version..:. Otherwise to good

  • Not fun

    by Skout222


  • Rip off

    by Brady737

    Paid a dollar for it and it gives you two levels. You have to pay more to get more levels so it totally not worth a dollar for two levels... What a rip off

  • Good game

    by Fatty823

    But please update for iphone 5 screen

  • Great game. But needs one thing.

    by Ringer17

    This game is very fun and addicting and has great music. So I rated it four stars. The only thing that it needs is to be optimized for iPhone 5. I have an iPhone 5 and it just seems so small because it isn't full screen. If that would be added, this game would be great!

  • No Support

    by (Jeff H)

    No Iphone 5 or 5s screen support...

  • Addicting… but,

    by 7_ME_7

    This game is probably the most addicting game ever! It's so fun and I love it when the beat starts going crazy! The only thing is... It lagges all the time :( Please fix that I really love this game!

  • Ok

    by Tdcrepeau

    I am ten years old and I think this game is fun but hard. It takes me multiple tries to get very far. If you like challenging games get this game.

  • iPhone 5 support please!

    by I'm watching south park rite now

    Great game. Love it. Hate losing tho.
