Ow My Balls! review (iPod/iPhone)

February 10, 2011

Later today I’ll be posting an initial review of Sacred Odyssey HD (iPad). Meanwhile, here’s some minor i-device culture for you in the form of Ow My Balls!

10 word description: Kick Joe off a roof, try to injure his balls.

10 word review: Silly, minimally animated, deliberately puerile, mildly amusing. Very quick games.


It’s like: Laughing at someone injuring their balls. Because that’s what it is.

It’s better than: Injuring your own balls.


It’s not: A resonating cultural experience.

Average game time: 15-30 seconds, unless you get lucky collecting bean tins.


Arcadelife verdict: A load of balls. Ok, I have to admit that I played this quite extensively in order to review it and it is a fun game. It’s deliberately badly drawn and animated (I assume) and there’s a certain warped charm to it. Memorising the locations of the bean tins is the key to improving your score.
