The visual graphics are alright for this game but overall, not so much. This is not to say it is a bad game. It is alright. Hey, it ain’t easy making a physics based game. You have to understand physics firsthand and then try to apply that in code.
The game play for Penguin Palooza is very simply. Just swipe to create floorings so the penguins won’t drown in the sea and make sure they end up on the right side safely going to the cave. Each level has a minimum requirement of the number of penguins that you need to get across to other side.
The game is about when the emperor penguin hikes across a hundred kilometers of freezing arctic wasteland to reach their ancient spawning grounds. Lately, however, the march of the penguins is increasingly obstructed by gaping chasms of open sea.
Driven by insatiable avian lust, and in stark denial of their flightlessnes, the desperate penguins hurl themselves across the gaps, only to plummet into the icy sea. If nothing is done, the majestic penguin will soon go the way of the dodo.
This game synopsis comes from Polarbit, its maker. And just by that any user can easily grasp how this game is played.
Addicting? Can be. If you like this kind of game. Me, not so much. Although the game also features a Palooza level where you can have as many penguins as you can cross to the other side and get that high score.
Overall, an okay game. But not one that I heavily recommend.
While reading an e-book about Windows Phone programming, I came across a paragraph that caught my attention. From Microsoft Press’ e-book titled Programming Windows Phone 7, it stated that:
<span style="color: #0000ff;"><strong>OLEDs are different from flat displays of the past inthat power consumption isproportional tothe light emitted from the display.Forexample,an OLED display consumes less than half the power of an LCD display of the same size,but only when the screen ismostly black.Foran all-white screen,an OLED consumes more than three times the power of an LCD.</strong></span>
<span style="color: #0000ff;"><strong>Because battery life isextremely important on mobile devices,thischaracteristic of OLED displays implies an aesthetic of mostly black backgrounds with sparse graphics andlight-stroked fonts.Regardless,Windows Phone7users can choose between two major color themes:light text onadark background,ordark text onalight background.</strong></span>
This tidbit is very informative. This could be why the default background color of smart phones is black. What do you think?
This is a pretty old game but it is just now when I decided to start playing this game after completing all 3 Angry Birds games. Playing this game is pretty easy. Just cut the ropes and make sure the candy ends up with Om Nom (the cute little green monster).
Many of them are easy. The trick is to get all 3 stars while clearing the level. So I guess this will be my next addictive game to play now. The graphics are cute (I see Om Nom merchandise here), the music and sound effects complement the visuals and the game is very easy to play with.
Cut the Rope is an award winning mobile game from ZeptoLab where it was an instant phenomenon in the iOS App Store reaching the #1 spot globally and continues to gain popularity as it makes its way onto Android.
Great job guys!
And one more thing, this game is addicting and very worth it. More levels are updated so once you see new updates, be sure to update the game to play new levels.
The game speaks for itself. I have nothing else to say but go get this game for your Android devices!
Oh yeah, having a bigger screen when this game is played helps big time. I never bothered playing this in my iTouch.
