Snow Fight (Free) by Sauce Digital
Available on iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad
I didn’t realize it when I pulled this app out of the review queue, but I reviewed a game called Nano Rally from this very same company a couple years ago and it was good! Snow Fight is good, too, but its major limitation is that you only get 7 levels to play and then you have to buy the rest. Bummer.
Snow Fight is a Capture the Flag game where your mission is to take out all the other little punks in the field of play by bombarding them with icy snowballs of fury and ultimately make it to their flag. You can send your troop(s) into the field by drawing a line they’ll follow and, with some well-timed taps, you can launch your ammo at the enemy along the way.
Overall this is a pretty good game and, unlike a lot of other seasonal games, it’s actually kind of fun. It may seem hard at first, but it won’t be long before you figure out how to pull off quick hit & run attacks and earn the medals the game offers. The main thing that stands out in the Improvements department is that you can’t pinch to zoom in and out of the playing field! Dragging your finger around to see who’s camped out where isn’t all that convenient. I’d also like it if reloading snowballs was a lot faster, but I think that’s just the game’s way of forcing you to strategize.
Last thing I want from this game… is for it to tell me how much the extra levels cost! Tapping on “Unlock All Levels” prompts me for my iTunes password without telling me how much I’m spending. Blech.
