If you're into arcade and/or platforming games, the simple controls will appeal, but make no mistake, there's a lot of difficulty in trying to grab the golden cup at the top of each level. Quick reflexes are key, as the action is fast and frenetic. Thankfully, there are some checkpoints throughout the levels so you don't have to restart back at the start. Also appealing is the daily challenges offered by Super Leap Day, which adds to the game's replayability, plus you can tap a calendar to play previous days. That, and the bonus games can be played at any time, once unlock, such as Pinball Day, Golf Day, and Race Day, which has you piloting a bouncy buggy across more horizontal levels. Adding more depth are the various characters, each with its own abilities, such as Puffer's inflatable head to help it float upwards, Spout's suction power (a green character that looks like Plants vs. Zombies' Pea Shooter), and Goop's stickiness to help it scale walls.
Along with the daily challenges, the main worlds each have a distinctive theme, such as Conflict Canyon (desert), Rainy Ruins (jungle), Capital Highway (city), Gravity Galaxy (outer space), and Hot n Cold Springs (contrasting weather, from levitating ice sculptures and hot springs that emit steam). The developers say there will be new content added over time as well, so there's definitely a good value proposition here.Too bad, though, there isn't a local or online multiplayer option, which could be fun, to compete against someone to see who can rack up the most points or reach the top first. Super Leap Day is a solid B-grade game that's cute, colorful, and fast-paced. It cleverly combines platforming with frenzied arcade action, and mostly vertical levels to separate it from most other games in this genre. Add one-button controls, changeable characters and daily levels, and it's easy to see the appeal of this Apple Arcade exclusive.
