Imagine Cut The Rope meeting Angry Birds Space somewhere in French children’s literature, and you’re getting close. If you’ve got a smart phone, you owe yourself a copy of Contre Jour for several reasons, not the least of which is the music.

Leon is a soundtrack veteran, responsible for the music behind such titles as Iron Man Extremis and Planet Hulk.
