With simple grass-roots beginning in Facebook, it didn’t take this uber-popular game franchisee to grow into its potential. Sharp clear graphics and art make this a joy to look at, while the whole concept of battling silhouettes leave us tantalized at the possibilities. The game-play is exciting to say the least, while old-school gamers appreciate the touch of nostalgia about the Mortal Combat like arena, the realism in the movement of is absolutely a product of today. It forces players to face challenge of mastering a new weapon for every level. The in-app offers do keep coming in but need must as they say.
This unique little gem has every pigeon-holing critic confused, myself included. It is a mix of strategy, adaptability, and some of the most eerily beautiful artwork seen in android games. The backgrounds are mesmerising, and the actual play is exciting. The idea is to guide a flock of these tiny, soft fluffy creatures in the dangerous world, where you can only herd them with controlled taps. It’s better to inure yourself to shocks fast because unlike other games there are no real indications for helpful or harmful items. The poor birds and the players must experience the Badland for themselves.
Ah, Tiny Tower. The game that will eventually take over your life. Even though it has been around a while, its only recently been available at the Android platform. The basic premise unsurprisingly is to build a tiny tower and manage the lives of the ‘bitizens’ that move into it. The artwork is in a commodore 64 style pixel format, it still manages to convey a shocking degree of detail to the minutiae of the daily lives of your bitizens. They even have the “Bitbook” which of course is where they socialise and share their selfies.
The thing about Smash Hit is that it is set in a bizarre surreal pocket dimension which organic matter has not yet been able to penetrate. Every level is completely and beautifully imagined with unique obstacles arising at each new level. The other thing about it is fully able to convey the gratification of smashing beautiful glass formation with a satisfying crash and no consequence whatsoever. It will appeal to the child in all of us. The adult will be suitably entertained with the graphics and the physics of the game-play while the child will get on with the important job of smashing everything in its path.
