Planet Quest is a mad, raucously fun rhythm action game about zapping dancing people as they stomp around a tiny celestial being.

Dudes and chicks in banana suits and bear costumes and flower outfits pop out of the planet and start jiving towards your UFO. When they're in line - as dictated by the beat of the dynamic backing tune - you tap the screen to beam them up.

It's brutally hard. You have to remember what you can and can't zap, the music changes on a dime, the camera spins out of control, and you lose if you mess up a few times in a row.

But boy is it satisfying when you get it right, and start to jive along to the game's quirky staccato beat. And the art style - all jaunty angles and bright colours - makes it look like a Keita Takahashi game.

Planet Quest - which was the second place winner at one of our Big Indie Pitch events last year - is free to download. You can pay 79p / 99c to remove ads, and you can remove them for free if you hit the number one spot on the global leaderboards.

Go get it. It's brilliant.
