Fishbowl Racer review (iOS / Universal)February 20, 2012
♫ “He will never be left on the shelf
‘cos Kevin he’s in love with himself”
10 word description: Guide the fish on his jolting cart through the house (Taken from app store picture caption).
10 word review: Endless runner as described by Salvador Dali after 14 pints.
You will like this if you enjoy: Having your preconceptions of videogames challenged by something fundamentally quite silly but a lot of fun.
The good news: (If you’re a Donut Games fan, just buy it). Graphics, sounds, controls – all very nice. Gameplay – incredibly, it’s an endless runner that is quite unlike any other, also very addictive and a great deal of fun.
The bad news: It’s not very realistic; people might try this and damage their furniture.*
Arcadelife verdict: Excellent game. Once you start getting into the ‘shelf combos’ it’s just a whole new level of genius. I don’t know who they’ve got working at Donut Games, designing this stuff, but they’re bloody good at it.
