Army Of Mice Free Review
In the 80's and 90s the arcades all had versions of the classic Whac-A-Mole game. The games may have varied slightly, whether it was a mole or weasel you were bashing the basic principle was always the same, something pops up and you give it a whack to send it back into it's hole. The longer the game lasts, the faster the vermin pop-up and quicker you must lay the smack down. Simple, frantic and loads of fun!
This brings us on nicely to Army of Mice, a game which brings the simple Whac-A-Mole priciple to the iPhone and adds a slight twist. Your goal is the same as the classic arcade game but being in the virtual world the developers have been able to pimp it up with some extra features:
- Link combos together to earn higher scores
- Fight through 120 levels and 18 different enemies
- 3 levels of difficulty
- 2 modes of play, story and survival
- Different enemies require different weapons
- Earn special weapons
- Earn power-ups in the game or purchase from the shop (using coins you earn within the game)
- Fight different levels of enemy
- Boss battles included
There's lots of options available within the game, ensuring it's got a decent lifespan and I liked the decision by the developers to include 3 levels of difficulty. I was surprised to see it wasn't linked in to any sort of online leader-boards.
The presentations nice and clear and the option to turn off vibrate , although small, is a nice addition which is often overlooked by games developers (come on, it's freekin annoying to sit be sat on the bus next to someone who's playing a game that's vibrating every 2 seconds)
Army of Mice is a fast and frantic game that's good for a quick blast when you've got a spare 10 or 15 minutes. You have to have decent hand-eye co-ordination to advance past the later levels but the 3 levels of difficulty ensures the games open to everyone. Best of all, it's on offer as a free app at the moment, so head over to the app store and give it a try.
