Game Review: Mole Control
Mole Control is a new game developed by Remode studios and is basically an improved version of highly addictive Windows masterpiece, Minesweeper. Don’t know about you, but I’ve spent hours playing that game. Nothing could quite compete with it until the release of Mole Control, which took the game to a totally new level.
Mole Control takes place in a town called Molar Creek, where people live alongside potentially dangerous explosive moles without any trouble. But one night an unknown villain lets the moles lose and the whole town is facing a disaster. The local scientist, Dr Kraft, invents a machine called De-Mole-isher and his assistant (you) has to de-mole-ish the town.
The game comes in English, French, Spanish, German, and Italian. The installation is easy and straightforward. There are 37 levels and two modes, Adventure or Time Attack mode. Keep in mind that you’ll only be able to play Time Attack after playing the Adventure Mode.
What makes this game stand out is music and graphics. It’s not at all like all those doom and gloom games that make one feel depressed. The music is nice and relaxing and the game’s graphics are colorful, fresh and high quality. The developers got the balance between the graphics and the animation just right. There are little animations everywhere with cute moles popping up and objects moving around.
You won’t have to dig around for rules, because you are actually taught how to play, first by Dr Kraft and then by helpful Molar Creek citizens. Also there will be useful tips on best ways to guess where the moles are hiding. The left mouse button is used to move around and the right one is used to dig out moles. If you start digging where there are no moles, your buggy will break down and you’ll have to use a repair kit (only a limited number of those). Once all the moles are cleared, you’ll be prompted to move to a different location, like Mrs Goodbody’s garden or the park.
The Time Attack mode has different levels, from beginner to master. It fits into the storyline, because you become a local champion once you’ve completed all the levels.
Mole Control is a very well-presented and fun addictive puzzle. Remode took the famous Minesweeper, reworked it, added their own creative ideas, great graphics, fun music and a challenging story. I can’t wait to find out who the villain is!
All this earns the game a 5/5 rating. It’s a must-buy for those who love the old Minesweeper, but are looking for something more creative. Mole Control will provide hours of entertainment for both adults and kids, will get you caught up in the story, and will improve your kids’ logical and problem-solving skills. However, if you prefer action games and never were Minesweeper’s fan, you might not want to spend money on a similar game.
