The Impossible Game Review. Yes literally.
You heard that right, this is the review for “The Impossible Game”. We all know how developers often exaggerate about their games specifics but this developer means it when he says impossible.
The game is very simple. You play on a 2D side scroller. Tapping your finger will make the orange square below jump over obstacles. A triangle has to be avoided at all costs by jumping over it, whereas a square can be jumped onto however smashing into the square or hitting its sides will still kill you.
Playing the game though is extremely difficult. The first level is extremely long, I’ve spent about more than 1hour and 250 tries on it and I got to about 70% to the level end. The game mechanics are very simple and the game is a joy to play. Some people though as one comment on the Android market describes it feel something along these lines: “two lame levels that make you want break your phone when you mess up”
Its a love or hate game to be honest, you are either going to love the gameplay and spend hours and days of your life and grow old as you attempt to achieve the impossible or you’re going to get frustrated, leave the game and move on. One thing is for sure though, stick around to master the game and you’ll gain the best satisfaction at ending a game level in history. Besides the bragging rights count too, you can show it off to your friends as the game only you can beat and smirk as they get frustrated trying to achieve the same.
Get it off the Android market for a bit under a dollar, and try it out yourself, and if you manage to beat the game, do share your comments below, we’d love to know how everyone gets on. And if you’re having problem with the game (you will ofcourse) try out the practice mode instead by hitting the flag icon to learn the level step by step.
