10 word description: Retro platformer. 15 levels. 4 game modes. 25 GC achievements.
10 word review: Tight, fun touch-screen platformer. A true hidden gem.
You will like this if you enjoy: Retro platformers. Bugaboo The Flea (wikipedia link).
The good news: Innovative and dependable control method, more like the kind you would expect in a golf game but it works well here. Good level design. Varied level graphics. Four different and consistently entertaining game modes. Lots of achievements and 180 collectible jigsaw pieces. No IAPs.
The bad news: It will probably go unnoticed and sell maybe 3 copies, despite anything I say about how good it is.
Arcadelife verdict: This is a great platform game with a control method that avoids d-pads, buttons and tilting. The default mode is great and the game would have been fine with just that one mode; the inclusion of three additional modes (with nothing requiring an IAP to unlock) is wonderful.
Predator mode is the one that most reminded me of Bugaboo The Flea, with each level being patrolled by a bloody great Cthulhu looking head, a massive insect or some other floating monster. If you beat three levels of that mode, you get a chase mode where an evil twin chases you around each level, killing you if it touches you. The final mode is a time trial that I have to admit I haven’t unlocked yet.
Overall – Bullet Pea is a very cool game and you should get it.
