Feed Me Oil review (iPod/iPhone)

June 7, 2011

“Let’s wait for the blackout”

10 word description: Physics puzzles – guide oil from pipes to mouths of creatures.

It's OIL, see. Not goo. There is no goo.

10 word review: Entertaining hybrid puzzler that has good looks and addictive gameplay.

In videogames, mutant rhinos eat oil. You knew that, right?

You will like this if you enjoy: Enigmo, World of Goo (looks, anyway), physics puzzlers in general.

The oil splats about in a fairly realistic manner

The good news: It’s entertaining rather than frustrating. A lot of thought has gone into the way you can constantly adjust the objects and restart the oil flow without any delays or being penalised for constantly tinkering with the puzzle pieces. The look and feel of the game seem to have been borrowed from other games, but these days who really cares if a good game isn’t 100% original? Not me.

The bad news: Hard to spot anything wrong with this. The usual things that end up annoying me with physics puzzlers seem to have been mostly fixed here. No crazy time limits, no restart delays, no penalty for constantly striving to perfect the solution.

Arcadelife verdict: Good stuff. Highly recommended for all physics puzzler fans, and there are a lot of those out there.
