This borrows heavily from Patapon.
At least in the graphics department.
I don't know how this game plays but I will probably check it out.

The graphics are intriguing. I'm totally hooked. I just think the price is a bit high. Stay tuned.

The graphics look like a hybrid of Patapon and Angry Birds but the gameplay sounds a little closer to Fruit Ninja. Sure they might be "inspired" by a few other games, but how they stuck them together looks damn original!

Game Impressions

I just got my own preview copy of the game (the iPad HD version) and it is a blast!

Going by graphics alone it looks like you are controlling an Angry Fruit Ninja Bird as you fight off endless waves of Patapon like baddies! While the graphics and mechanics are clearly inspired by other games, this combination is nothing but entirely original!

You control a bird that is nearly invulnerable and need to send him to and fro to slash the baddies coming for your eggs (since your character just hatched himself, I guess technically they are your unborn brothers and sisters).

The only control in the game is a simple tap to tell where you want your bird to go and he will race to it at lighting speed from wherever he is at the moment (no need to land first). At the same time you'll need to take into account gravity as, whenever not slashing about, your bird is falling back down to earth (not that hitting the ground is a problem for your bird).

If keeping the endless waves of baddies away from the eggs wasn't enough to keep your wings full, there are the deadly bomb baddies. These are the one type of baddy you can't slash (you just need to let them pass by unmolested and, lucky for you, they have no interest in the eggs). If you bump a bomb baddy or allow all of the eggs to be taken off screen, the game is over.

Add on top of all of this the game's series of Tiny Wings/Rooftop Escape like objectives constantly being dished out that will increase your base point multipliers once completed. The key to big points is, much like Fruit Ninja, to wait for the baddies to cluster in such a way so that you can take out as large a group as possible in a single slash.

I love the huge variety of baddies that each come at and attempt to steal your eggs in unique ways (like mole men that just pop up right next to one of your eggs to drag it off to some flying guys that will try to suck your eggs away using some sort of tractor beam from halfway across the screen)!

5/5

When I see Rip Off, I think of the real game Rip Off.

Too bad this is nothing like it.
