Magnet Boy: Written iPhone App Review
Looking for a game that has the same target and launch type of game play, but with a different theme, premise, and goal? Then the Magnet Boy app from developer Mongol Content (Hong Kong) Limited is just the app for you! It is compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), iPod touch (5th generation), and iPad, and runs on iOS 4.3 or later.
The concept of Magnet Boy is similar to other popular target and launching type app games, with one main difference – the concept of attraction and repelling forces. Basically, you are in control of Magnet Boy. You can launch him into action by holding down on him and aiming him into the desired direction and target. Your goal is to launch him just perfectly from the starting magnet to next magnet target so that he will “attract” robot parts during transit before touching base with the next magnet. However, here is the catch. After you launch Magnet Boy, while he is in transit you will need to change Magnet Boy’s position in mid air so that he will be attracted to the next target magnet and not repelled by it. In other word, make sure that Magnet Boy’s negative end is aimed toward the positive target magnet and the other way around. If you prefer to skip a particular magnet just keep in a neutral position so he does not repel or attract any of the next targeted magnets.
Appearance and Layout:
The graphics of Magnet Boy are pretty well done. With drawing board style images and vibrant color schemes, the user will not only find this game appealing to look at, but fun to watch. The effects and animation are spot on, and add to the overall game play. The app layout is relatively simple to figure out, and navigation is a cinch.
For Magnet Boy being offered for free is a great deal for a game app like this one. It is unique in its own way and stands out next to other popular games in the same playing style genre. Since it does not cost you anything, and you get at least 20 levels of free game play, this game is a bargain that is difficult to beat. It is great game of users of all ages and backgrounds, and the concept of the game is simplistic enough to understand, but yet still possesses challenging maneuvers that will keep people entertained and coming back for more.
