10 word review: Spike pits and fire traps are fun. Dodo Master rules.

You will like this if you enjoy: Platform games featuring loads of dastardly traps.

The good news: Looks great, sounds great, plays great. The levels are fairly short but packed with danger and opportunities to risk everything over and over again – classic platforming gameplay.

The bad news: Just one thing – the dive button is very close to the jump button and I occasionally plummeted to my doom rather than jumping. You get used to it and it’s not a massive issue, although the option to customise the button positions would be great.

Arcadelife verdict: Dodo Master is a classic platform game experience. It has all the spike pits, fire, traps, swinging blades and nasty spiders you could possibly want, and then a few more just in case. I sat down to play a few levels and ended up clearing about a third of the levels in one long session. Please don’t make any more games like this – I don’t have time to enjoy stuff as much as this!

Dodo Master – just an excellent platform game. If you like platform games and you haven’t got this one, the app store link is right there at the end of this review.
