Go4Loco: Written iPad App Review
Do you love games like Othello, Go, or Checkers? Have you heard of Go4Loco? It’s available in the Dutch iTunes store, and also in the US iTunes Store. Brought to you by developer Ben Koster, is a new app for iOS. This interesting game app features 1 v 1 gaming fun on iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad for devices running 4.3 or later. Is it worth checking out? Hang on as we give you our take on Go4Loco!
In Go4Loco, you must arrange your tiles in sets of 4. Different color combos and number combos will score you different points, with up to 100 points (or 400 using a variant) in a game. To make matters more interesting, the game board is an interesting shape, forcing you to use strategy to put down just the right number to score the most points. It is relatively fun, fast-paced, and pretty addicting! Multiplayer is a big part of this competitive game and the point calculations get fun fast. Be sure to check out the excellent trailer showing off the game play and feature on Youtube.
There are 4 different game variants to explore and the game allows you to take part in multiple games at once. I liked how Go4Loco looks simple at first, and offers some options to make getting accustomed to the strategy a bit easier. You then have options to spice things up. For example, you can use the Joker card to double the points. All told while you can begin enjoying the game rather quickly, it takes a long, long time to master-truly great replay value in one small iPad app!
Go4Loco looks great on iOS. Graphics are sharp and clear-cut, and the game layout is excellent. It’s easy to figure out and doesn’t take too long to pick up the game (although you will need to play it a lot of even get close to mastering it!). When you first get started with it you will probably play to 100 points. Then later, as you get better and begin to master the game you can play to 400, which is one of the nice variants. The developer has also included a helpful intro tutorial to get new players off and running in Go4Loco.
Go4Loco offers simple yet entertaining fun for all ages. It’s also not too pricey and the multiple game variants with multiplayer really adds to it. Graphics and overall layout are nice and really add to the overall feel of a fun board game experience on the iOS. If you like board game style apps, Go4Loco is worth looking into. Be sure to rope a friend into getting the app as well; it is definitely more fun with people you know looking to score the most points on Go4Loco!
Go4Loco iPhone app requires iOS 4.3 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad devices. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
