The Internet’s provided us a terrific a lot of points, which include a boatload of Flash games with which to squander our time. Final calendar year, when there seemed to be a bit of a lull with them in favour of Facebook games like Farmville, a single glorious product emerged: Robotic Unicorn Assault. This game took the Web by storm, and launched a complete new era of avid gamers to the miracles of 80’s synthpop and its infinite trippiness.
What commenced off as a Flash game on Grownup Swim’s website migrated to the infinitely a lot more worthwhile markets of Fb, iOS and now Android. Robotic Unicorn Attack will come in at a cool 99 cents (I’m assuming, as it reveals as $.94 due to Canadian price tag adjustment) and, from what I can inform, it really worth just about that. Just-considerably less-than-a-buck looks to be the magic price tag for a great deal of apps, as its not so considerably that it provokes a big determination, but not so minor to not make any dollars.
The game is in essence basic it is got a button to leap and a button to dash. Your career is to get as quite a few points as probable in a few life. All over the entirety of the app, you’re addressed to “Always” by Erasure: YouTube it. You won’t be disappointed.
With this kind of a uncomplicated premise it is really hard to assessment I signify, the app does its job and replicated the encounter on the Android platform effectively. Even so, the only criticism is that until finally the game begins up, I get the black bars (pictured higher than) on my Atrix I’m not certain if this is a resolution issue or if it reveals up on other phones. You fellas will have to assist me out in the comments.
The game offers two manage techniques: a person with on-display buttons and one primarily based on gestures. The gesture controls, whilst a bit appealing, really do not necessarily allow for for precise play at the game will get more rapidly and a lot quicker. I’d endorse sticking to the button controls until you want a challenge just after the ticker rolls previous 10,000 points.
Feint integration, which I’m typically not a enthusiast of, adds some a lot-required replayability to a game with such a simplistic idea. I do not have quite a few good friends on it (sense free to insert MattDemers), but score competitiveness could undoubtedly retain this game from acquiring stale.
You can download Robotic Unicorn Attack from the Android Marketplace.
