This is one of the most magical and beautiful game I have ever played; the story is simple, the music is breathtaking and the art while simple creates the best ambience for the game. Some may argue the game is too slow paced that it isn't a true "videogame" but thats unfair who are they to say whats really a video game; the story has puzzles and great simple mechanics which make it challenging enough to keep you thinking and interested. This game is a must buy whether on your tablet or iphone or simply on your computer this game is a wonderful play.

Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP finds its way easily into my list of favorite games. I bought this as part of a Humble Bundle a couple of years ago and never played it due to distractions. Now that I'm on vacation, I decided to take some time out to sit down and play some of the games I have in my Steam library but haven't actually played, or simply to play some games that I miss playing.

The graphics are simple, but beautiful and the soundtrack is awesome.

If you like beautiful games with very relaxed gameplay that focus more on ambiance and storytelling than action and tropes, give this one a shot.
