Soaped Up Air Arcade Game

Game Play:

Soaped Up, a casual import game from Japan is entertaining, and soothing with its music and easily learned game play. Soaped up gives enough of a challenge to keep you occupied, while you move a bubble around obstacle courses with your mouse acting like a fan. One comment here, I understand that Japanese is a very poetic language, yet the developers of this game could have done with an English Speaker to translate the instructions for the game. Among the awkwardly phrased instructions were wrong spellings and awkward word choices. This, of course, doesn’t affect the game play, but it does say something for the overall performance of the game. The fact that the game also crashed my computer when I tried to close out of it tells me the developer missed a glitch or two on this otherwise enjoyable game.

Graphics-wise, Soaped Up is nothing new. Reminiscent of early flash casual games in the late 90’s, Soaped Up’s graphics are simple and often simple geometric shapes moving in circles. What the developer spent the most time on is the physics engine surrounding the bubble movement. Controlling the bubble is flawlessly enjoyable, and well crafted. This is where Soaped Up excels. Despite the old-school backgrounds, and finicky language translation, Soaped Up is fun, and the game play works.

The music is where this game’s creativity comes into play. Soaped Up’s soundtrack is a joy, the sort of music you would turn on after a stressful day and listen to over a cup of tea while snuggled up in a blanket reading a book. What it does for game play is set the mood and relax you as you manoeuvrer your bubble through the grating sounds of the background fx once you make a mistake. Yes, the red-lined mistake sound effect can be as jarring as the bell tone in the old school board game Operation. Yet, this directs the player with a challenge – to succeed.

Lacking a significant story, Soaped Up focuses on the puzzles, and the hours that can be spent guiding your bubble. Creatively speaking, the backgrounds in each level add to the play quietly, barely noticeable for the tricks involved. This works. Innovation might not play a huge part in this game, it presents itself as another take on a common game, yet the atmosphere created by the music, and overall tone make it a soothing game to enjoy, if you can get past the few bugs it still maintains.

Buy:

– If you like Japanese Import casual games.
– If you like entertaining, calming music.
-If you like experimenting with well crafted physics engines.

Don’t Buy:

– If you like Orsinal.com, you’ll get much of the same there.
-If you keep your computer on mute.
– If grammar and spelling mistakes get you down.

Playing Singularis is a surprisingly enjoyable experience. The game is quite impressive, with a great amount of depth and game play considering it was made by just one man. At certain points, you cannot help but laugh at the humorous story, and at only $14, the price of the game is also just right for multiple hours of fun. Note: The publishers reduced the price to $7.50 as of November 30th 2009.

Eets has a daft name, but is a fantastic puzzle game suitable for all ages. Guiding Eets across a precarious landscape towards his destination, a jigsaw puzzle piece (all the world’s puzzles have apparently been broken), by manipulating his emotional state and (of course) blowing things up, the game constantly feels fresh, imaginative and most importantly fun.

It’s only fitting that Namco Games should offer a legendary arcade game a facelift. BurgerTime Deluxe attempts to update the venerable BurgerTime, but falls short. It tries to shoehorn this fast-paced arcade game into a lifeless casual gaming presentation, and much like an aging pop star on a glitzy comeback tour, the magic is gone.

Summary: Tired of run of the mill video games that offer nothing new to the players? Try this one for innovation… if you like it, you will definitely love it.

Game Play: The basic gameplay involves guiding a gold car along the tracks by constantly switching rails (with the help of the mouse button or spacebar). However the game offers different game scenarios, all of which are timed.

– Collect Coins: you have to collect as many coins as possible.
– Goldrush: you have to collect all the coins on the screen.
– Dynamite: you have to pass the dynamite stick before it blows up.
– Collect Diamonds: and deposit them into the tunnel.

You have to complete the individual sessions between one and two minutes. And the counter starts ticking with ten seconds left – which adds to the tension. As usual, as you progress in the game, you unlock further items and the gameplay becomes more and more difficult.

Graphics: Remember those (bygone) days of adolescence when you had laid out a railway track in some inaccessible part of the house? And frantically switched tracks to keep the engine running? This is a 3-D version; and though the topography is sometimes confusing, the important thing to remember is that the dark (brown) tracks lead downhill. What the computer makes possible is that you can keep going downhill and still come back to your starting point!

Creativity & Innovation: Full marks for innovation. The best part of the game is its simplicity in concept and design. This is a game for all ages – you can play it, your kid can play it, and (perhaps) your mom can be induced to play it as well! Good news if you are new to the world of computer games: you do not have to be a genius or an addict to enjoy this game.

Conclusion: This is an interesting (game) concept, and it has been well developed. If it catches on, it could even become something of a trend-setter. If there is a criticism, it is only that one’s skill level keeps varying between “Apprentice” and “Master”. Normally, as one gains in experience, one would expect that to be reflected in the rating. Fun to play? Yes, and the game sessions last no longer than two minutes. So, if you tire of playing, you can switch off the monitor, and resume when you are in the mood. In sum, it’s a decent game to add to one’s collection.
