Snap Trap review (iPod/iPhone)

November 22, 2011

“It’s a rat trap Billy but you’re already caught”

10 word description: As mouse, navigate mazes to collect cheese and avoid traps.

10 word review: Fun trap-dodging; gets tricky quickly. Plenty of levels.

You will like this if you enjoy: Maze games. 2D collect-em-ups with challenging puzzle elements.

The good news: Clear, simple yet attractive graphics. Control method is pretty good. New trap/puzzle features are introduced frequently. Tricky enough to be very challenging without being too frustrating.

The bad news: The control method, while working fairly well, could be improved. Frequent, short load times whenever you select anything or move from one screen to another.

Arcadelife verdict: I like the concept; it’s not 100% original, obviously, but the graphics are decent and the puzzle/trap elements are entertaining and there are plenty of them. Overall, it’s a well designed and attractive action/puzzler that feels intuitive to play and doesn’t look like loads of other iOS games.
