Princess on Ice sees you jump, spin and pirouette your way to fame as you follow the fortunes of Kelly, Gabrielle, Alyssa and Madison - four young ice dancers. Plucked from obscurity by a mysterious dance trainer our heroines are trained and in turn audition for the Princess on Ice Tournament, the most prestigious ice dancing event of the year. Follow the girls through their journey as they dance their way through the world's premier ice skating stadiums perfecting all the moves and striving to impress the judges.
Do our four dancers have what it takes to be crowned 'Princess on Ice'? The game play is based around rhythm and action using the stylus to follow dance prompts on the lower screen. Tap circles before the time runs out to skate, follow arrows as quickly as you can to spin, touch matching shapes as they meet to jump and tap shapes before they disappear to step. Your skater will react on the upper screen to how well you are doing in the game. Drop too far down the 'heat' meter and she will stumble losing valuable points with the judges.
In addition to all the ice dancing fun you can totally customise your character with fashionable accessories, clothing and headwear. There are hundreds of different combinations across the four characters giving a unique look for each. As you progress through the game you will also be rewarded with a whole host of un-lockable extras including new levels, accessories, special moves and storylines adding yet more life and fun into the game.

The game itself is quite straightforward. You choose a character and then compete for the title of Ice Princess, basically by completing one ice dance at a time successfully (this is done by completing mini challenges whilst the character skates, such as tapping out bubbles in rhythm to the music or spinning a disk very quickly - don't worry, you get to watch the performance back if you missed any moments of glory). Along the way you get to build up points, talk to the other characters, add to your wardrobe or just practice your moves. If you complete every round you may become the Princess - if not, start again with a new character and keep trying.
With the overall feel of a Disney-Cinderella extravaganza, the 4 main characters are nicely doll-like, with the actual skating arenas ranging from a fairytale Castle to a setting by the Pyramids! I was hugely impressed with the actual skating, for a game played on a small computer screen it's uncanny. Top points go to the makers for technical accuracy here, the characters absolutely look and feel as though they're skating. Best of all you get to buy more outfits and accessories the better you skate (again beautifully illustrated) - should you wear a tiara or the diamond cuffs? So many decisions... Playing the game is just hard enough to keep you interested, with lots of classic 'ice skating' music to dance to (this is really beautiful and a real highlight of the game - use the headphones to get full appreciation).
If you're an adult (like me!) you'll just love sitting down for half an hour or so of real girly magic, although I can't imagine any little girl not loving this game.
