Join your favorite Roodie Noodies, Lollie, Shoobie, Rockie and Shellie in this tilt-happy, all ages iPhone app. The sweet summer time action and festive sound track will have you craving a little sun and surf of your own in no time. Let’s take this iPhone app review all the way to the beach!
In Roodie Noodies and the Rubbery Rings iPhone app, it is all about the bounce. Your Roodie Noodies are on a swing, and ready to make it to the rubber ring at the end of each fun water course by bouncing off of objects, and avoiding all the obstacles.
It sounds simple enough, but it gets challenging quickly as taller and harder obstacles pop up, and longer courses populate in Roodie Noodies and the Rubbery Rings iPhone app. There are 20, progressively difficult levels to defeat along the way. I definitely found myself challenged and intrigued.
Once you complete a course you earn a gold, silver or bronze shield, depending on how well you did. Complete a course in less bounces to earn a higher level shield. So you see finishing a bouncy level is just the beginning of your fun.
Roodie Noodies and the Rubbery Rings iPhone app does add an additional level of difficulty and fun to the Roodie Noodie collection, opening up the appeal of this raucous beach gang to a whole new age group.
I was pleasantly surprised with the extremely responsive tilt technology of Roodie Noodies and the Rubbery Rings. Tap the screen to start a level. Swing your Roodie Noodie back and forth and release at just the right angle to send them flying out over Belly Button Bay.
Once they are air born, continue to use the accelerometer to control their flight. Otherwise you might end up with a Roodie Noodie shooting way past the rubber ring, and you’ll have to try the course again. The simple, but precise, controls help make Roodie Noodie a lot of fun.
Graphics & Design:
Detailed graphical design and fun, beachy details make Roodie Noodies and the Rubbery Rings come alive. Warning, you might be so intent on your game that you miss the applauding glams and other goofy graphics. Don’t forget to watch for your Roodie Noodie’s belly button to toot!
I also have to mention the special, summer music created for this iPhone app. The tune is really light and fun. I was humming it after playing the app for the first time, and that does not happen to me.
All ages fun with the Roodie Noodie and the Rubber Ring iPhone app can be yours for $1.99. There is no catch and no additional cost associated with this app. I’m a big fan of upfront pricing, and think $1.99 is a reasonable price for an extremely well-made iPhone app appropriate for kids (and adults!) of all ages.
Roodie Noodies and the Rubber Ring 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.
