I was wondering why I hadn’t discovered this app earlier. Like Twister, Finger Tied Jr. will have you moving your limbs (on in this case, fingers) around the screen, sliding and dragging them all over in a super awkward fashion.
In this game, players are presented with tiles arranged in seemingly innocent patterns. Various shapes are also scattered throughout and these represent individual start and end points. The objective of the game is to lay a finger on each assigned shape and drag it across the shaded tiles (highlighting them in the process) and make it from one point to the other.
Now what makes the game exceptionally tricky would be that each shape has to be ‘activated’ first before the game can commence. That means in later levels, pretty much all your fingers will be occupied and placed in extremely awkward positions. How to proceed with the game will then depend on your own dexterity and skill.
You can imagine how difficult it is to maneuver around the screen with so many fingers in the way, each needing to cross their own paths. Whats more, straying from the boundaries of the shaded paths will result in failure of the stage. This, by no means is an easy game to play.
I found myself raging and pulling hairs out for failing at seemingly easy levels. Many a time a stage seemed so simple that I let my confidence and cockiness get the better of me, only to have my finger slip off right at the end.
For $0.99, this game will provide many an hour of interesting and good fun. Definitely worth the purchase in my opinion.
Would I Buy Again:Yes
Learning Curve:The objective is simple to understand but definitely not easy to execute
Who Is It For:Everyone
What I Like:The challenge of the game
What I Don't Like:Tile patterns can potentially cause an epileptic seizure
Final Statement:Be prepared to pull some hair out
