A local Vancouver husband and wife team, known as Dingo Games, have released their first game for iPhone and iPod touch called â€œTasty Planetâ€.
The game allows players to control a small ball of goo which eats objects around it so long as those objects are smaller than itself. The more that is eaten, the larger the ball of goo becomes.
The objective of the game is to become as large as possible and eat as much as possible. As players progress through the 60 levels and various edible objects, the goo grows larger to the point that it can eat entire planets!
The story is entertaining, as the game uses comic strips to tell the story of how the goo was created, originally starting out as a revolutionary bathroom cleaner. However with a small miscalculation, the goo started eating not just bathroom dirt, but everything it touched!
To control the character, users can choose from four different control methods, with the default method being tilt controls.
I am impressed with Tasty Planet. I like the music, game play, and story. It provides hours of amusement and is not one of those games that you’ll play once and forget.
