10 word review: Behind the cute, girlie exterior is a fun, addictive game.

You will like this if you enjoy: Flight Control. No, seriously, the gameplay is very similar despite the lack of line drawing and the inclusion of cute characters who seem to be just head, hands and feet.

The good news: It’s really cute and adorable. Controls are spot-on. Gameplay is simple with gradually increasing difficulty and challenging elements. Split screen multiplayer is good and adds an extra dimension to the game. No IAPs.

The bad news: It’s really cute and adorable.

Arcadelife verdict: So yes, it’s like Flight Control without the line drawing or planes. Hard to believe I’ve been running this site and reviewing iOS games for two years, isn’t it? Anyway, if you can cope with a game based around guiding boys and girls wearing the same colour clothes towards each other while avoiding other people and optionally picking flowers… it’s actually a decent game and has all the elements (including a split screen multiplayer mode) to make it a touch screen success. Personally, I’d have preferred guiding dinosaurs or killer robots around but I expect there’s a market for this kind of girlie cuteness too.
