Do you love oranges? Do you love puzzles? Do you want a cute app that only costs $.99? If you answered “Yes!” to any of those questions, then Cover Orange is for you! Cover Orange combines cute graphics with physics-based puzzles into a cute and easy-to-digest package!
Cover Orange was originally an online game, so I was familiar with it and excited when it was released on iOS devices. For those of you unfamiliar with the game, players must use different objects to protect the cute citrus characters from the evil acid rain cloud. You are given items such as barrels, crates, and wheels which can be used to interact with the environment or orange(s). At first, the game is ridiculously simple, which is a good thing since it was originally created for young children, but with almost 300 levels, there are bound to be some puzzles that will even stump adults.
Playing Cover Orange is very simple. Players just drag and drop items from the top of the screen into the environment. They provide outlines so that you know where you are dropping the item; however you cannot simply place the item on the ground because there is a line that you cannot pass. The items you are given appear in a set order, so users cannot choose which item to place next. This adds an extra layer of difficulty for the serious puzzle-lovers.
Cover Orange provides cartoonish graphics and music to draw the attention of any young child. This makes it a great game to give to your child while on a road trip. But just a warning, you may not get your iPhone or iPad back for a while because this game is very addictive! I found myself immersed in this game while traveling and was able to beat around 200 levels.
If you are stuck on a particular level of Cover Orange, you have the option to use helmets that will protect your orange(s) from the acid rain. Players are automatically given three helmets for free, but if you want to get more, you must purchase them via in-app purchases. Five helmets are available for $.99 or fifteen for $1.99.
Adults may find this game repetitive after a while since several of the levels can be very similar. Also, the levels tend to vary in difficulty instead of becoming more difficult as the levels progress. This can be a good or bad thing. It is a good idea because you can take a break from the mind-boggling levels and beat some easy ones. It is a bad idea because you may find yourself bored after beating fifteen easy levels in a row.
Cover Orange is easy and fun to play and only costs $.99 for a ton of levels! If you need a new game to get addicted to, check out Cover Orange.
