Monsters Slugger Free: Written iPhone App Review
Like the concept of baseball combined with funny looking monsters? Then the Monsters Slugger app from developer Liberteenz.LLC. 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.
When you load the front page of Monsters Slugger, you will be able to select the “Play” function, you will be taken to the main menu where you can access additional functions such as a tutorial, sound options, record keeping, view more information about the developer, and more.
To play, you will begin with a pitch. By simply tapping on the “pitch” button on the bottom left hand corner, you can aim to target and flick to strike a monster as it approaches. If you want the monster to repelled further, than your pitch and strike must be stronger, so pitch and flick at a quicker speed. Accuracy is key here so make sure you aim just right. There will be different types of monster coming your way that have different characteristics such as: fast speed, up curves, and multiple scorings. Monitor your life gauge, along with keeping track of the critical and eye button to see what your strike power is and what the next type of monster is coming your way. Every time you master, you obtain a skill point.
You can also sign into your Game Center account to keep track of your scores there. There were times when attempting to return to the main menu when the app would force close and you would have to reload the app and start over.
Appearance and Layout:
The overall appearance of Monsters Slugger is pretty decent. The creatures aren’t the cutest kind, but are humorous looking and are appealing. The color scheme is bright and engaging, and the action animation is smooth. The menu options are a bit vague since there aren’t any headers offered, but some clicking around will help you get the basic gist of them.
You can’t really complain about this game since it doesn’t cost you anything. If it wasn’t for the frequent force closing of the game, then this game would be better to work with. Nonetheless, it is a fun game for users of all ages and backgrounds, and will prove much entertainment for everyone. Since it is free, it is worth the try and play, and since the force closing doesn’t occur during game play it might not bother most users very much.
Monsters Slugger iPhone app requires iOS 4.3 or later and 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. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review. The iPhone app reviews rating: [Rating: 4/5]
