Love the classic arcade app “Whack-A-Mole”? Ever take a stroll through a fair or carnival and see people hitting away at quick moving critters, just hoping to win a stuffed animal prize? Now you can experience the same feel, and fun, with a touch of your fingertips. If you think the name of this iPhone app is goofy, wait until you see the characters that you have to get rid off. Thick Lips , developed by EddyL, will be a sure hit with you!
While performing my iPhone app review of Thick Lips I found that it is super simple to use. Simply install, create a username, and staring whacking away at bizarre looking creatures. The key here is speed, and to rack up as much points as possible while still clearing the current level. There are random objects that can hit, if you have quick reflexes, and this will add additional points to your total. What does the title have to do with game? Well, at each level, the characters dubbed “Thick Lips” have magical powers that prevent them from being destroyed. They transform themselves to be spiny or invisible, and can also teleport and reproduce themselves. However, never fear, you can use missiles and cannons to help you destroy them. There are 10 levels total, and once you complete the tenth level, you will unlock the endless mode.
Although the graphics aren’t the best out there, they are still decent and are sufficient enough for the game play. The entire point is to destroy as many characters as possible, so the player is not really focusing on the background but, more on the characters that are popping out all at once. However, the graphics are still pleasant to the eye and are not distracting or irksome.
Thick Lips iPhone app has cutesy, jumpy background setting sounds and of course, special effect sounds when a character is destroyed or missed. Also while in intermission mode when selecting which level to play next, fun ragtime themed music will play while waiting for you to make your selection.
Overall Thick Lips is a very fun and entertaining game. It is also a great time killer and does not require any additional previous knowledge or skill. It is a game that can be played by children and adults and will still prove to be enjoyable and challenging. Still reminiscing the days at the fair or hours spent at the arcade whacking away at moles? Well, with Thick Lips your feelings of nostalgia and longing are now over. Hit away!
Thick Lips iPhone app requires iOS 3.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
