App Review – Nicky Boom

Developer: Chillingo

Category: Games

Price: £0.59

Platform games are tough to get right on the iPhone. The lack of physical buttons means that you often have to glance down at your finger position to make sure they’re in the right place. What’s even more annoying is when game makers put the control options in the way of the game. Chillingo have thought of this and ensured that the control portion of the screen doesn’t get in the way of the action, which amounts to a much greater control and a lot less frustration. So, Nicky Boom sees you embark on a quest through classic platform levels where you not only have to defeat enemies but also find secret passage ways and hidden objects. This game is great fun and absolutely worth 59p of your money. Its a great time filler that doesn’t take itself too seriously.
