Chillingo has been one of my all time favorite app makers, especially with their Cut the Rope game. My impression was reaffirmed after hours of fun with their new release, Catch the Ark.
God asked Noah to make an ark and escape the Genesis Flood with a pair each of all animals (yeah, the Biblical story). But according to this game, Noah was a very rude & lazy man and three birds were left out from the ark. The great flood began and the poor birdies had no choice but to pick up a bamboo raft and start following the ark.
Maneuver the boat through rushing waters and dodge obstacles, to survive in this addictive endless game. Tap right or left to move and that is pretty much all about controls. But, timing is crucial and this is where the game gets tricky.
Numerous rocks,waterfalls, ledges and jumping planes form the hurdles while crocs, piranhas dragons, giant squids and sharks are here for their meal. Occasionally, Noah even attacks you with water mines; look out or face the boom! Don’t get tensed ‘coz power-ups like magnet, hover craft, rockets and boost are here to assist you. Each hit throws a buddy to the chill water and so, you have three strikes before you’re Out.
Just like Temple Run, you can collect coins and gain multipliers as the meter fills up. But the downside is that a miss of a single coin will bring your multipliers all the way down to zero and you have to start over again. These coins accumulate and can be used to upgrade your boat and also to buy items like pterodactyl, parachute and whale tail. Like many other endless runners, the game progress in levels with three missions each.
The animations are great while sounds are effective. To conclude, with an unique concept and addiction in the package, a tag of 99 cents is surely justified.
Would I Buy Again:Without doubt
Who Is It For:Pass-time gamers
What I Like:The animations are great
What I Don't Like:All multipliers are lost even if you miss a single coin
Final Statement:Catch it if you can!
