Furballs, developed by WiseApp Inc, is an incredibly fun and addicting game for iPhone and iPad. Using a combination of Duck Hunt, Fruit Ninja, and Angry birds, this unique new game is perfect for any player.
Concept and Gameplay:
If you thought popular iOS games like Fruit Ninja and Angry Birds were addicting, then a game that roughly combines the two should be insane. Trust me, it is! The goal of this fun new game is to knock little flying furballs out of the sky using a wide variety of weapons and abilities.
There’s a cute introduction to the story behind Furballs when you play the game for the first time. Basically, woodland creatures made off with an air compressor and inflated themselves so they could fly around the sky. As the Ranger, it’s your job to put these mischievous critters in their place. With the help of your trusty dog Beemer, you’ll shoot these buggers out of the sky and retrieve your air compressor.
It’s fairly easy to learn how to play the game once you make it through the first level. Simply choose your weapon and get ready to wreck some critters! You can do so by tapping on the screen, but be careful not to hit anything that might cost you points.
As far as graphics and gameplay, Furballs features a nice balance of both. The only issue I could see as far as layout was on the weapon select screen, where text is cut off and you can’t really read what each section is for. This is a minor flaw, though. Other than that, it’s very easy to find your way around the game.
Furballs features plenty of levels for players to enjoy, and levels are split across various seasons. Each level also includes its own set of goals to accomplish while playing. Players will also receive a trap rating (similar to stars) when they finish a level.
Lastly, players don’t have to worry about spending a ton of money on in-app purchases to help them get ahead or beat levels. Everything that’s available in Furballs can be unlocked simply by playing, which is incredibly neat to see.
In the age where many games exist for the sole reason of making money, it’s nice to know that Furballs is truly a labor of love.
Furballs is available to download from the App Store for $2.99 and is designed for iPhone and iPad. You can optionally purchase coin packs within the game if you’re impatient, but everything can be unlocked by playing.
This is definitely a nice thing, as it keeps users from spending oodles on the game. In terms of value, Furballs is worth every penny. It’s truly a fun game to play, and it has a ton of potential.
Furballs requires iOS 7.1 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
