Review

Toys bring a smile to your face. Suppose you’re walking through the street and suddenly you catch your childhood best friend placed in the nearby store for $1 sale, what will be your reaction? I don’t expect many of us to go and buy him and show it to your wife that you’ve brought a friend home, but there certainly will be a big smile on your face. But what would have been your reaction if that toy was stolen away from you in your childhood? Then it would have been nothing short of a surprise, right? Well, a similar situation is what we have here. A small boy loves his toy Zappi just like any other child. But one night, some aliens come from nowhere in a spaceship and kidnap that toy. The toy fights it hard but was unable to escape. But in the Spaceship, it finds a pipe which might let him escape. So should we proceed?

Zappi is the new iOS app that has been developed by Eforb Games. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and requires iOS 6.0 or any later version of the OS. This app has also been optimized for iPhone 5.

The gameplay of Zappi revolves around a set of puzzles. Each puzzle has two pipes: one for entrance and another for exit to the next level. It’s a mind puzzle but there are physical attributes as well. First of all, the puzzle is based out of space and therefore Zappi continues to fly upwards. The only things that keep it grounded are the various hurdles or built-up structures. But it has a special power of gravitation as well which you can use to grab all the stars. There are magnets in the puzzle and you can go from one magnet to the other just by tapping at the screen. Adding, there are many more elements such as fans, pipes, etc that you may discover as you proceed.

The game has span over two different seasons. In the first season, all the levels are locked and therefore you’ll have to clear each level to get to the next one. However, the second season is locked and is only available in the paid version of the app.

The graphics of this game certainly make a difference to your overall experience. They are very neatly designed and somewhat homogeneous throughout. So you won’t see something complex or hand-picked material being used. The finishing is great just like what we think of the aliens that they are ahead of us in technology. However, I would have liked to see something more to the ground and a pinch of surprise as well as we are in the world of aliens. In fact, the gameplay does have some unique features and you’ll certainly enjoy that. But the graphics do have their own charm and I like that.

So in my opinion, this is a must have game. It has two versions: one free and another paid. So you can reach the paid one via free one or you can go straight. It’s just a matter of choices after all because the final destination is same!

Pros: neatly designed graphics; addictive gameplay with unique features; hundreds of levels; both paid and free versions available.

Cons: graphics could be more complex.
