Penny Shoel HD review (iPod/iPhone)

November 20, 2011

“What do you do? Shove it, you can shove it”

10 word description: Dutch version of shove ha’penny. Unlockable skins. Game Center.

The intro scenes are the best looking bits of the game

10 word review: Frequent load pauses, rather basic gameplay, but it’s fairly entertaining.

The starter skin couldn't be less thrilling to look at if it tried

You will like this if you enjoy: Playing shove ha’penny on your iPhone.

This is fairly representative of a typical game

The good news: Intuitive controls and gameplay. Graphics are decent enough. Unlockable skins add incentive to keep improving your score.

Unlocking cheese world gives you this green skin and cheesy pucks

The bad news: Load times intrude whenever you move from one screen to another or select any option. The puck physics aren’t exactly the best ever.

The end result is still the same

Arcadelife verdict: It’s ok if you can live with the load pauses and very basic gameplay, but I can’t pretend I got particularly excited about this one.
