Teeny Green review (iPod/iPhone)

September 14, 2012

“I’ve got a pocket full of pretty green”

10 word description: Turn-based 2D platform/maze logic puzzler. 100 levels. Game Center.

10 word review: Solid concept, tough without frustration. Polished, nice looking, good controls.

You will like this if you enjoy: Logic puzzles. Turn-based platform games … personally, I think the world needs more of them. Toki Tori; ok, it’s not that similar, but it seems to involve the same parts of my brain… the small, feeble parts.

Instead of a timer, you’re rated on the number of jumps (turns) that you take to complete each level

The good news: While not 100% original, it’s a nice change from the usual iOS puzzle games. The basic turn-based puzzle concept is very good; different elements are introduced on a regular basis. Graphics are good, enemies and objects nicely drawn. Plenty of levels.

The bad news: The name (Teeny Green) sounds like the smallest miniature golf game ever.

Arcadelife verdict: This one is pretty good all round, providing you’re a fan of logical puzzles and don’t mind a bit of trial and error when things start to get tough which, for me, was quite early in the first set of levels. I’m not even sure why I’m reviewing this game, as it isn’t particularly new. I’ll just blame it on the fact that I’ve had no internet access for the last 3 days.  Hey, at least you got to read about a decent game that you’ve probably never heard of. You’re welcome.
