Friv Game Reviews – Blooms, Level Editor and Iq Ball
Friv is an amazing collection of interesting games, this is a review of three games from the wide array and I’ve also mentioned where to find them.
Friv.com. It has only been a couple of hours after I discovered this cool site full of interesting little games. The main page itself looks awesome, reminds me of the mini sticker collection that I had as a kid. There is something unique about the layout that makes me feel as if I am transported back to my childhood; those mini colourful buttons were so cute. In the beginning, I had no idea of what I was looking at, I didn’t even know I was looking at a gaming site. It was quite a revelation.
When one is given a choice between two, you know very well of which one to go for, but when you’re thrown an array of options in front of you, you seldom know what to pick. That’s what you face with Friv, there is just too many to chose. To help you out, I will be reviewing some games as I discover them. Here I’ll walk you through three very different games of Friv.com
Bloons -This game is on the second row from the bottom and is located more towards the right hand side. Bloons is a game that needs the application of basic physics. you will have to burst balloons by perfectly aiming your arrow. And the persona carrying the weapon to shoot down the balloons is a monkey. I personally think the monkey addition to the game is a bit funny, hehe. Anyways, the game goes smoothly till the fifth or sixth level. That’s where the toughness creeps in, you need to be more smart with your tactics from there on. I personally like the application of physics theory in games, kind of an exercise to the brain in a fun way.
Level Editor - Locater at the fourth row from the bottom, second column from the right. As the name suggests, this game requires you to create a path for the protagonist to par his hurdles and finish the level. You are given a set of tool/objects to strategically place them for the mini man to find his way towards the door that leads to the next level. The level of toughness of this game is pretty much above average, took me a while to cross the second level. I kept on leading the mini man down the pit onto a some spikes (reminded me of ‘Prince of Persia’), made the poor guy reincarnate many number of times. This one requires a lot of brain work and keyboard skills, a very creative one though.
IQ Ball - sixth game on the first row. This is a very cute one, and although a simple concept it requires the aid and application of some basic physics knowledge. All you have to do is make the blue ball swing its way, like tarzan, meet its target. The game is very simple and yet very addictive.
These are the three games for now, will sure to be reviewing more later on.
