Of the three platform games we’re reviewing today, SilverTree Media’s Cordy (Free/$5, version 1.51) is unquestionably the most impressive—so strong, in fact, that we repeatedly found ourselves thinking of just how far the iOS platform has come over the past few years. You take control of a happy little robot through a collection of 27 levels spread out across four primary worlds; rather than a full joystick, you have left and right movement buttons, plus a jump button and an action button that can be used to interact with different items in each level.
