Don’t you just love it when you run across those addictively repetitive iPhone gaming apps? You know the games I’m referring to! The games where you can play them over and over and over without needing a ton of features to be entertained by them. I know, they’re few and far in between, but I have another for you to add to your list: Smack Me.
I tweeted about Smack Me last night because I’d been playing it on and off the entire day (yes it’s that addictive for me). The game basically follows the concept of Simon Says. You will randomly be asked to shake, pinch, or tap your iPhone. All you have to do is keep up with the actions. Sounds simple enough until the levels of difficulty kick in. There are 3 different levels of difficulty and different rounds for each level. You have to beat the first level in order to unlock the next.
Casual Gamers Apply
Fortunately, the game is random enough to keep players interested for a long or short amount of time making it an immediate “come-back to” game. For casual gamers, Smack Me is a perfect addition to your iPhone’s spingboard. You can find the full Smack Me app in the App Store for $1.99. If you’re one of those people that likes to try before you buy there’s a lite version available too. Give it a go and let me know your thoughts.
