Save Toshi £Free

iPhone users have been saving Toshi for a while now. Why should you bother? Because she's an anime pop star trapped in a 3D puzzle who bizarrely has forgotten how to walk. To progress through the 100 levels you'll need to think in three dimensions, giving it the edge over 2D puzzlers.
