Cookie Pop for iPhone most definitely is a game that pops your cookie. When I first started playing this game (a puzzler by the way), I had no clue what the game was about, or how to play. The first few levels were just drawing shapes by tapping on the highlighted squares to make shapes that explode the sour-faced blocks. As the levels progressed, you’re not given those highlighted squares anymore, but you are given something quite interesting.
Gameplay is something that I’ve never played before in my life; there have been no originals or ports/copies that I’ve stumbled upon whether it’s on a flash gaming site or an Xbox 360. There are shapes that appear on the top right corner of the screen, and you must draw them out next to the unmovable blocks to make them explode. Once those blocks explode, you have to keep drawing shapes that come up in the top right corner. If you don’t draw the shapes fast enough, you won’t have enough space to draw; therefore, the level ends and you will either have to replay it or quit to the main menu. I thought this gameplay was very unique, and I’ve never come across something like this, ever.
Graphics and artwork are top-notch, and the menus are all very nicely designed. Whoever did the artwork, I commend them for their skill in the area of art because they did a great job. I did find some grammatical errors and whatnot, but the artwork, is again, top-notch. They appear to be the one of the best artwork available.
All in all, Cookie Pop offers some great gameplay along with great artwork. It’s very easy to learn, and after the beginning levels, you’ll start to get the hang of it. For $2.99, some may say that it’s a little expensive, but trust me this is worth your dollars/pesos/euros/pounds/etc. This is a must have game for fans of puzzlers, and I think I can safely say that it’s definitely worth a look for non-puzzle fans. The gameplay is somewhat hard to explain, and if you didn’t get my little blurb about the gameplay, that’s fine. This game provides some really addictive gameplay, settings to change blocks, and other little nifty settings. There is a classic mode and endless mode included, and although I’m not sure if there are global highscores, the classic mode features 50 levels including around 5 boss levels. I did find the game a tad bit difficult and the balance was a little off, but the game itself delivers unique gameplay along with great artwork.
The price is $2.99, and the creators are ICECREAM SOFT.
