Tarelcus: Written iPhone App Review
Sometimes you just want a game to play that is simply, challenging, and entertaining all at the same time. At the same time, you want it to have an appealing appearance and awesome sound effects. Then Tarelcus from developer Rus Wizards LLC is the perfect game for you! It is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, and runs on iOS 4.3 or later.
When the user first loads Tarelcus, they will realize how easy the developer made this game to figure out with the satisfaction of the user in mind. They are first prompted with two options: “Play” or “Score”, which both functions are pretty self explanatory. Once the user selects the “Play” function they are then prompted with different “zone” or levels to select. The basic premise of the game is to somehow get the rolling disc to the “black hole” without touching the hot pink border zones and thus being eliminated. The rolling disc is move by tilting the user’s device left and right to balance the rotating disc in the desired direction. Sounds simple, but it can actually be very tricky. Success is not likely to be achieved right at the first attempt which makes it even more fun!
Appearance and Layout:
Tarelcus is simply amazingly easy to use. No instructions are necessary, and all the user has to do is load up the app, pick the next available zone/level to play and embark! The user can already get the main gist and purpose of the game in less than ten seconds. The main color scheme is an array of purple, and there are no other graphics that would cause any distractions. The background and game foreground complement each other perfectly to provide an enjoyable gaming experience. The game also has a cool background music vibe that plays right when the user loads the app. Sound effects make it seem like the user is playing an actual arcade game.
Overall, Tarelcus is a pretty awesome game. The fact that it is offered for free makes it even better. It is clean cut, well developed, and entertaining and challenging at the same time. It has the right blend of being engaging for all age groups and audiences, but also has the fine balance between being simple to play and yet, not difficultly frustrating. It is definitely a game that will keep its users on its toes and most definitely not bored. Highly recommended – get it today!
