I’ve mentioned it casually a few times, but haven’t yet given it its proper due — either way, Mobigame’s retro-futuro-cubist iPhone platformer Edge hasn’t dropped off my “page one” assortment of iPhone games since its original release.

But at this point you don’t need me to convince you: Mobigame has just released a Lite version [iTunes] of the game (alongside an update to the full version [iTunes] with 17 new levels and a global ranking leaderboard) to let you try it for yourself.

To celebrate, they’ve also released the full soundtrack to the game as a free download. The game’s up for an IGF Mobile award for best audio (and both the audience and judge awards for best game), and truly is something special: the needle wavers nicely between C64-euro-chiptune nostalgia and approaches all-out Ed Banger-type dirty disco-punk in its best moments.

But, if nothing else, you should get it just for the amazing sugar-cube version of the game that graces its cover, as above.
