This isn’t going to be a blog about the iPhone 3g in general but about a game I purchased from the brand new Apple app store. It won’t be a review as such, but just a general observation on what the game is like and my first impressions. I’m not going to try and make this a professional type blog, it’s just a quick overview of what I liked and disliked about it.
Super Monkey Ball
It’s from SEGA so of course it’s going to cost me something and I honestly felt that the purchase was justified after only playing it for a few mins. The concept of the game is very simple. Make your monkey go in some ring and collect bananas on the way. Seems pretty easy but since you don’t have a directional pad it is a hell of a lot harder than it looks. You have to move it side to side, up and down a bit like driving with a wheel only... not. (i don't know :P) The graphics are good for the iPhone with frames being consistent and not chugging at all, it runs very smooth.
Anyway I got through the first levels pretty easy but then it starts to get hard as fuck. I thought this was going to be a nice happy friendly game but it frustrated the living hell out of me at times. I would be yelling “GET THE FUCK IN THE RING YOU STUPID MONKEY” whilst being on the verge of throwing my brand new phone as far as I could down the road. I know, I know, just because a game is hard or challenging, doesn’t mean that it’s bad. In all honesty I’d say this is the most fun out of all of the “iGames” I’ve tried so far and now I know what to expect from the harder stages, I can keep my temper in check without going all Angry German kid and actually enjoy it.
As i mentioned before it's not a review, please comment!!!!
