A very addictive little game, a lot of fun too. I can say that I’ve played it for hours today and hardly even realized that so much time passed by. The goal of the game is simple enough, you only use two keys to control the coaster, one is to accelerate and the other to brake. You need to give the coasters passengers the ride of their lives through the track, while making sure that they keep their lives as well, since a few wrong moves, too much speed or a wrongly calculated angle can lead to the cars of the coaster crashing and your beloved passengers dying (well not really, they fall off the track and open their parachutes).
While playing the game your performance is ranked by the amount of thrill you give your passengers, and of course the more are left standing the more points you get since you make more people scream with joy. Each trip you take them on is ranked from 1 to 5 stars according to this, the more stars per total on each track you have the more tracks you can unlock. There are also bonuses you can get for having high speed or keeping the coaster in the air for a long time or many other things.
All in all not a very complicated game but very fun, guaranteed to keep you playing for hours until you’ve at least uncovered all of the tracks in all of the 3 areas of the game: Paris, Australia and New York.
Nice graphics, smooth gameplay and the strategical twist to the usual arcade shooting game genre are the best parts of this phone game, but you’ll have to live with the bad sound effects and relatively small mission number.
Everybody loves a good war. Well at least that’s how it seems these days. So it’s time to get your rifle, put on your uniform and army boots and go fight for your country.
Call of Duty is a pretty well know franchise when it comes to PC gaming, and today everytime a successful PC game comes out, it’s almost immediately followed by a cell phone version. The only things the PC and cell phone version have in common though are the name and the basic gameplay idea. The game takes you through 8 missions in different parts of the world, having you participate in military actions as part of an assault team.
This game wants really badly to add a more strategic side to the classic platform shooter but it just doesn’t quite cut it. Besides shooting, sniping and the occasional targeting of an artillery strike, you’re also supposed to use the terrain to your advantage by taking cover behind sandbags, crates and what not. That would be a really great idea if your health would actually be precious instead of regenerating whenever you’re not being shot at. Or if your team-mates weren’t so good at killing absolutely everything so that you hardly have to fire a shot yourself, yet so dumb that they get stuck in walls. Oh well, you can’t have it all.
Other then that the game at least manages to take out some of the boredom of doing repetitive actions that you would expect from a shooter. It also has some nice background music, but lacks the special effects for all of the weapons and explosions.
