Having previously attempted to fuse retro style with a contemporary ox in Minotaur Rescue, Jeff Minter's Llamasoft has followed up its first iOS game with puzzler Deflex.

Deflex is a 2D puzzle game in which you have to deflect a ball of light around 52 retro levels by placing angled pads. All to collect random shapes like Smiley faces and t-shirts.

All this is accompanied by light piano pattering and the haunting voices of the collectibles saying things like "yay" and "good job!"

It’s is a Universal app so you can play on both iPhone and iPad for £1.19/$1.99/€1.59.
