Seabirds: iPhone Written App Review
Join Jimmy, Carl, Vincent and Amanda, along with their friends, on the path to fishy success in the new Seabirds iPhone app. This awesome app comes to us from Shamrock Games, and chronicles the journey of these penguin friends as they trek across the world in search of a stable flock of fish for their birdy friends. Are you up to the challenge?
The Seabirds iPhone app is a series of puzzle levels. It’s your job to find the fish and solve the riddle that will lead them back to the Arctic Circle. Along the way you’ll face 84 levels of fun, and use the laws of physics to solve each level’s puzzle. As you lead this feisty crew of penguins around the world, you’ll stretch your skills and face fun bonus levels. The better you do, the more fish you’ll earn, and the further you’ll get, unlocking new friends along the way.
I will say this: beware the Seabirds app’s pay to play system. The initial game download is free, but if you choose to avail yourself of the hint videos along the way, then odds are you’ll be making an in-app purchase to unlock subsequent levels.
Odds are, you’re going to want to. This game is a lot of fun, and presents a unique challenge for physics-based puzzler fans. This genre just keeps getting better, and Seabirds is definitely a good example of yet another advancement in it.
Layout & Design:
Fun, cartoon-style graphics help keep the Seabirds iPhone app interesting. This app also works well on the iPad, in case you’re looking for a larger view. It also integrates with Game Center for unique achievement options, always a plus. I’m a pretty big fan of this app’s sea-faring theme and abundance of puzzle solving fun. Even the sound effects are spot-on. Seabirds is a ton of fun.
Best of all, the Seabirds iPhone app is free to download and enjoy. Yes, you will probably be tempted into an in- app purchase after finishing the first set of levels. But any in-app purchase removes the app’s advertisements, and makes it easier to move forward.
If you’re not sure if this puzzle solving adventure is for you, you can always download the app for free to get a feel for it. But, trust me, it’s worth moving forward. The Seabirds iPhone app is well made, entertaining, and has plenty of captivating variety to keep players interested.
Seabirds iPhone app requires iOS 3.1 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.
