Choco Run review (iOS / Universal)July 8, 2011
♫ “Having trouble with my direction
Upside down psychotic reaction”
10 word description: “Guided Platformer”; tap to jump. HARD by design. Game Center.
10 word review: Initially very odd controls; brutal difficulty. Masochists only need apply.
You will like this if you enjoy: Super Meat Boy. Gravonaut. Platform games where you die a lot. Testing your patience to breaking point.
The good news: It’s encouraging to see another example of a very hard platform game where some thought has gone into creating an original control method specifically for the touch screen.
The bad news: It’s frustratingly difficult, often because of the encouragingly original control method.
Arcadelife verdict: Don’t listen to me, this could be your new favourite platform challenge game. Personally, I think I’ve burned myself out on League of Evil, Gravonaut, Mos Speedrun, 1-bit Ninja … and another viciously hard platformer that requires infinite patience (which this really is) just pushed me over the edge.
Arcadelife rating: 68/100
Version reviewed by Arcadelife is 1.0.2
