Copycat game with poor controls, game play is repetitive and it contains unneeded permissions, not ready for prime time yet!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Slashing Pumpkins (App)
This is a typical slash the object game but I was not crazy about it. On my Kindle Fire the bomb made sure that it quickly covered the pumpkin so that I cut the bomb almost every time. In addition the control of the game made me not cut pumpkins or eyes if the bomb was to close. I even cut a bomb that was off the top of the screen and you couldn't even see that it was there.
Main screen: There is none.
What I like:
The game play is Ok but I felt the game controls did not work very well.
What I don't like:
This is a copycat game with poor controls. Many times I would slice an object and it would not cut after trying multiple times. The bombs seem to move intentionally to get in the way and when you cannot slice a pumpkin or eyeball, you sure can nick a bomb very easily. On my Kindle Fire the opportunity to slice something and not have it work got worse as the game progressed.
The game is very repetitive and like most slicing games you will tire of the same game play. The game does use full internet control and Kindle state but it has no menus, links to the web or nothing else that would require the permissions. Reading Kindle state and ID is one of my least favorite permissions and when it is coupled with network permissions it can be dangerous. The Android version on Google does not ask for this permission so why is it in this version?
This game to me has a more faults than good features. It is a copycat game with slicing controls that don't work properly. It has permissions I don't care for that are added into this Amazon version that are not in the Google version.
The game just seems rushed to market to make the Halloween holiday and it is not fully polished yet. With nothing creative, permissions it doesn't need and poor controls I rate it a one star app.
