Just A Rather Basic Timing Game That Is Nothing Special
on November 1, 2012
Now that the free apps of the day with Halloween themes from Amazon are over and this is the month of Thanksgiving in the United States of America, I have decided to start this month by being a little generous. Therefore, I am going to give this app 2 stars instead of just one like I should probably have given it.
I want to disclose that I did get this as the free paid app of the day today from Amazon.
This game is completely functional and playable so I am not disputing that.
My problems with this game is that it is way too simple in design. For example, your character is limited to just jumping up and flipping between the top part of the screen and the bottom part of the screen.
That means there is no way to control how fast your character is going or how high or low the character jumps. So to sum it up, this game is completely based on timing.
To make matters worse, this game lacks a variety of obstacles and they seem to appear at random times making some places impossible to continue without dying. Every time you die you have to start all over, and I am not even sure if there are any levels or checkpoints in this game.
One other annoying thing about this game is that you get the same dull looking Game Over screen every time you lose the game, and when you try to restart by touching the screen to play again, the character is already jumping once in the next game right away.
And finally, the music feels somewhat repetitive.
