Cavorite – a must have platform game!
Game play trailers, the little short preview movies can tell a prospective customer a lot about the game. I had seen the video for this game a couple of weeks before the review request came in. And it was “meh, another platform game of pushing blocks around”. Boy was I wrong!
Looking at this game live instead of an over processed over compressed YouTube video makes a world of difference. The graphics of this game are *H*O*T* and look much better on the phone than they do on YouTube. Note to self: Don’t judge a game based on its trailer!!!!
And its not just the graphics. The levels are challenging and you have to not only think out the solution, but you have to have some dexterity, timing and wit to get the blocks moved into the right position at the right time. It will test your skills and test them well. Many platform games (where you run across side to side, jumping around…, i.e. Mario Bro’s) your ability to push buttons at the right time is the important skill, but as the levels advance in Cavorite, planning becomes equally important if not more so.
The play contols are positioned well and work smoothly. The buttons provide large enough hit targets and are responsive.
If you are into platform games, this could be the best $1.99 you can spend!
