Thomas Was Alone for the iPad has arrived by stealth because we had no warning that it was going to be released on the iOS device, and even searching Thomas Was Alone on iTunes comes up with nothing, which we find very strange. Before you think this is another of those apps that will fade into the shadows, think again, as this game proved very popular on the PC, Mac, PS3 and PS Vita, and so this port has been a long time coming, since 2012 in fact.
For those of you who do not know, Thomas Was Alone is a puzzle-platformer that features various blocks that come in different shapes and sizes. You will need to get to know these shapes in order to reach each level.

We do hope that this two-year wait for the Thomas Was Alone iPad release will not put you off downloading this app, especially as reviews for the app have been rather positive. One such Thomas Was Alone for iPad review is in video form that we found on Youtube and gives us his take on this app.
The review is good in the way that he has played various versions of this game on different platforms, and so it is good to learn just how well this iPad port is, and if it has been worth the wait. We can tell you that this is a positive review, and so is a good guide for those thinking of downloading Thomas Was Alone on the iPad, as it will cost you $8.99, or £5.99.
If you are not convinced about just one visual review, then Trusted Reviews has spent some time with Thomas Was Alone, and they have also come up with the same conclusion because there are far more positives than negatives.
The pros are great touchscreen controls, the same storyline and gameplay as on other platforms and an overall great iPad port. As for the cons, the review found that the on-screen controls could have been bigger and the biggest issue is price, as some of you are not prepared to pay so much for an iPad gaming app. Having said that, with no in-app purchases, the Thomas Was Alone for iPad price is not as bad as you might think.
