Plopp: iPhone App Video Review
If techno tunes, vivid backgrounds and chain reactions are your thing, you’ll love the new Plopp iPhone app from games2be. Our iPhone app review found this game quite relaxing. Read on to see if you do, too.
In Plopp your job is to create chain reactions by tapping plopps. Plopps are circles that appear on screen and grow. As they grow so does the number of points you can earn by popping that plopp.
Think of plopps like rain drops falling on a pond. Touch one plopp and it will set off a ripple effect, bursting each plop the ripple touches for a brightly colored chain reaction.
The game isn’t quite that simple, of course. Your job is to complete four different quests on each level. Fittingly there are four game modes in the Plopp iPhone app. You’ll compete for top scores, top times and most efficient use of plopps on a global scale through Game Center.
Depending on the quest you will play each level a little differently. That does help keep the game interesting despite being so straightforward. The idea of growing circles that interact is not completely original. Despite the quests, the Plopp iPhone app does get quite repetitive rather quickly.
Layout & Design:
Some of our favorite features in the Plopp iPhone are the unlockable backgrounds and plopp styles. Each time you complete a level’s quests and unlock the next set, you also unlock a background and a new plopp. The app’s entire look changes.
Backgrounds range from beautiful to bold, and are really quite nice. The graphic work here is on par with nice wallpaper for your iPhone or laptop, the kind you might be tempted to spend a dollar on if it really tickled your fancy.
The plopp designs are much less impressive until you’re pretty far in the game. Some of them actually make it hard to see what’s going on. Guess there’s only so much you can do with an expanding bubble.
Plopp app for iPhone is quite well made, with a simple, themed UI and one touch controls. The only issue we experiences was an occasional response problem with the pause button during games. Otherwise this app is solid.
The first five levels of the Plopp iPhone app are ad supported. That means they are entirely free to play and enjoy, just deal with a simple bottom banner ad on the app’s home screen. After that the ads are through, but to keep unlocking new levels you must purchase credits. Credit packs are available in-app and range in cost from $.99 for 20 credits (you need 10 credits to unlock each level after level 5) to $7.99 for 240 credits. Doing a little simple math, if you want to play the entire game and access all 80 quests you’ll end up spending at least $6.
While Plopp is a fun iPhone game, it is quite simple, and can get pricy in a hurry. We suggest playing the free levels anyway. You’ve got nothing to lose.
Plopp iPhone app requires iOS 3.2 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.
