Idiot Test Pro – Way Too Funny!: Written and Video iPhone App Review
When it comes to genres that we appreciate on the iPhone or iPad, there’s none we like to take a look at more than that of the ye olden puzzler. We like anything that will give our grey matter a serious run for its money, which is perhaps why we’re so stoked on the little puzzle game Idiot Test Pro – Way Too Funny! by developer CreativeNose. The app offers up a wealth of fun, challenging, and mind-bending gameplay. All in all, for more information you won’t have to solve any riddles: Just slide on down to our full review beyond the break.
Concept and Gameplay
The idea behind Idiot Test Pro isn’t exactly new, but then again, it’s very well presented here within the title. If you’ve ever before played a similar style of “idiot proof” test, then you’ve already got a pretty good handle on how the app works. It presents the user with a series of challenges which seem simple, but are really quite complex. For instance, the first level of the first section has a monkey requesting a left handed high five—though he’s raising his right one. The game continues to offer up small challenges like this, swapping the solutions between being crazy complex, and stupidly simple. The end result is a rather disturbingly hilarious experience, as you’re never quite sure if you’re solving he puzzle correctly.
The app also happens to come with a number of different stages and puzzles. For instance, it’s got two settings that are guaranteed to fail every man and woman on earth. Or, if you’d prefer, you can simply work your way through the more traditional, though no less difficult sides of the app.
Graphics and Design
All in all, Idiot Test Pro – Way Too Funny! doesn’t look half bad on the iPhone. The interface within the game is unbelievably simple to navigate, and we had no problem playing the game or getting to its various stages. However, there are certain elements that we wish had a bit more polish: For instance, we’d like to see just a bit more fluidity between puzzles. Some sort of tying element would be nice, just to keep the theme together. However, the gameplay itself is hardly effected at all, and our complaints are entirely negligible.
And we certainly can’t argue with the app’s value. At only a dollar in the App Store, there’s no reason in the world not to give it a whirl. If you’re into puzzling games for the iPhone, we promise you’ll be pleasantly frustrated with Idiot Test Pro – Way Too Funny!. If you’re into the genre itself, the concepts presented here are easily worth your time. Overall, this means that Idiot Test Pro – Way Too Funny! gets a solid recommendation from us, as well as a well-earned four out of five stars.
Idiot Test Pr0 – Way Too Funny! requires iOS 4.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
