iPhone Game Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com
For those of you that loved the phenomenal, “Words With Friends”, or other highly communicative gaming apps, we’ve got another soon to be classic that’s right up your alley.
RubIt, from R1D2 Inc, is a hilarious, spontaneous, and somewhat sensual approach to interactive gaming on your mobile device. This innovative little gem allows users to either compete with the computer, or play against friends, and rub a screen to reveal a hidden picture.
Guess your way to glory in RubIt, a highly addictive game that is going to be an absolute smash with families around the world.
Think of “Wheel of Fortune”, and the huge green screen of letters presented by the infamous Vanna White. Contestants had to guess and guess again, all while receiving gradual hints as to what the target word or phrase actually was.
RubIt is very similar, except that the hidden phrase isn’t one; it’s a picture instead. The more you reveal of the picture, the less you’ll be rewarded. But if you can guess what the picture is with little to no exposure of the screen (which is exposed by physically rubbing it; thus the name), then your pay off will be huge!
This app is full of different ways to play, including single or multi-player options, and various levels including, “General”, “Sports”, “Fashion”, and “Nature”. There’s enough content to keep you glued in, and the app itself is rich with additional features.
Concept and Functionality:
This app is original, fun and runs extremely well. It has a cute little animated introduction and an easy to use interface. Development is ace with this one, and we’ve yet to discover a single glitch or bump in this app. It even supports 31 languages!
You can compete against the computer, against friends, and complete various challenges to earn different level badges.
The app even allows you to take pictures or video when playing multi-player, and boasts the fact that it presents users with no ads whatsoever.
You’ll find more than one reason to get hooked onto RubIt, which is engineered to be played over and over again.
When you successfully guess an item, confetti floats across the screen and a celebratory feeling overtakes the game. This vibration is at the heart of RubIt, and showcases a game that’s built to please.
It’s fun for all ages, but has enough flexibility and creativity to reward older users as well. In general, we had a blast with this app (which is free by the way) and recommend it to anyone looking to get their rub on!
RubIt requires iOS 7.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
