Electro Chuck (iPhone) Game Review: Electrifying Gameplay
Chuck the Fish from AppSolution Inc’s latest game for the iPhone, Electro Chuck, belongs to a curious species of fish, whereby you can run a wire through them (starting from the mouth, and out the other hand) and they’ll still move :). Ok, I’m just pulling your leg, such a species doesn’t exist in real life, and Chuck exists in a game that essentially brings about the classic wire-loop game onto the iPhone.
If you are not familiar with the wire loop game, you must be living under a rock for quite some time (or missed out on a lot of cool stuff as a kid). In any case, the objective of the wire loop game would be to guide a metal loop along a serpentine length of wire without touching the wire. This requires precision on part of the player, and this being adopted by Electro Chuck, precision is the name of the game on the iOS device.
Players guide Chuck along the wire simply by titling the iPhone. This will cause Chuck to move upwards or downwards at an angle. Some segments of the wire will slow Chuck down, while others act to speed him up. At certain times, there will be enemies on the lines and Chuck can open wide to actually allow them through. The same method can be used to collect bonuses.
Chuck has a health bar of sorts, touching the wire will cause him to be electrocuted and when the health bar drops to empty he dissipates in a shower of pixels. With this gruesome fate in mind, it’s important to keep Chuck centered to the wire.
The game comes with full Game Center integration and players who are out for a challenge would certainly appreciate the achievements, which are no push-overs. The game features really cool 2D graphics and I find it very cool to see even the credits page turned into a game. Nine Over Ten 9/10 rates Electro Chuck at a 4.5 out of 5. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
