Krashlander – Ski, Jump, Crash! review (iOS / Universal)January 18, 2014
10 word review: An old game I just found – liked enough to review.
You will like this if you enjoy: Knowing I’m just filling space to get to the 500th review, which is going to be a really great game…
The good news: Clean, attractive graphical style. Performs well on older devices (i.e. iPad 1). Controls are good once you figure them out. Very user friendly, with the option to skip a level being offered if you appear to be struggling.
The bad news: The controls, although actually very good, could be a little too complicated for some players. Small number of levels. No Game Center. No sync between devices.
Arcadelife verdict: It’s different enough, polished enough and enjoyable enough … there just isn’t really enough of it. More could have been made of the skier’s ability to dislodge boulders and other objects, which seems like a massively missed opportunity and the number of levels is quite small. Overall, what is there is fun and well worth picking up if you like a bit of stunt skiing mixed with physics based target destruction.
