Meow Meow Happy Fight (iPhone) Review: Super Cute Arena Shooter
My goodness. If there’s one way to describe Meow Meow Happy Fight would be BaboViolent with a large dose of cuteness. Don’t let the beautiful manga-style cuteness fool you though, this top-down arena shooter from prolific indie developer Big Pixel Studios is pretty hardcore.
If it were a 3D first-person-shooter, I would compare it favourably to Quake III: Arena, a perennial favourite of mine. Gameplay is defined into 3 types and levels are unlocked by finishing on top of the standings at each preceeding level. Picking up stuff dropped by opponents nets you Happy Points which can be used to unlock the numerous characters in the game.
Like Quake III, Meow Meow Happy Fight features a plethora of power-ups, adding an element of surprise to the game. The game switches on auto-aim by default, but you know what…you can disable it and the game becomes a true dual-thumb shooter, and in my opinion, the one true way to play the game.
Nine Over Ten 9/10 rates Meow Meow Happy Fight at a 4.5 out of 5. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. The game is available at a price of USD 2.99 on the iTunes App Store: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/meow-meow-happy-fight/id361384085?mt=8.
