iPad Game Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com
Let’s face it… jellyfish rarely get the attention they deserve. After all, they have dreams and goals, too. Well, they do when it comes to extremely fun puzzle games. Bring on the high flying fun!
Concept and Gameplay:
Jellyflop! is an incredibly addicting strategy game that will definitely suck you in. With excellent graphics and catchy music, I found this game to be a true pleasure to play. The whole goal of the game is to help Jelly, an adorable little jellyfish, fly through the air. This sounds like a simple task, but you’ll encounter numerous obstacles that’ll definitely pose a challenge.
To help Jelly navigate each level you’ll need to draw jelly lines that he can bounce off of. Be careful, though, because the amount of jelly you can use is very limited. I found that it took awhile to get used to drawing small lines and positioning them correctly. One thing that saves a ton of time and trouble during gameplay is the ability to reposition drawn lines. There’s no limit to how many times you can move lines and set Jelly in motion, so feel free to experiment as much as you need to.
I’m happy to mention that Jellyflop! isn’t a game you’ll finish in a few hours. Why? There are 100 levels spread across 5 zones that get progressively harder. You’ll jump through portals, swish your way through the air via fan, and do all sorts of cool things to help Jelly achieve his dream of flight.
Jellyflop! features a scarily accurate physics engine that’s pleasantly realistic and definitely makes gameplay fun. From bounces to skids, slips, and falls, everything Jelly does is beautifully designed. Also, you can see Jelly’s flight path on his most recent run, allowing you to make adjustments if needed.
For players who love to unlock achievements, Jellyflop! includes a ton of cool goodies to reward you. You can even dress Jelly up in cool hats, customizing the game to your preferences. Hats can be unlocked by earning certain achievements or by purchasing them using water droplets earned by completing levels.
Jellyflop! is available to download from the App Store for only $0.99 and is universally compatible with iPad and iPhone. I definitely recommend downloading it if you enjoy cute puzzle games. Be warned, though; you won’t be able to stop once you help Jelly take to the air!
Jellyflop! is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 4.3 or later. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
