App Review: Rainbow Ruckus - The Amazing World of Gumball

From the popular Cartoon Network show, The Amazing World of Gumball the brand has expanded to bringing out their own mobile app version for iOS and Android. Developer Cartoon Network EMEA Games released the app last April 15, 2015 in the United States, while the UK release was a week after (April 24, 2015).

Gumball Rainbow RuckusThe objective of the Rainbow Ruckus’ game is to defeat Jealousy (the green ghost) by restoring the stolen rainbow in its place and save the town of Elmore. Players will play as Gumball (the blue cat) throughout the game, although Darwin (orange fish with a body) will be beside you for the adventure.

Game Story

Jealousy is back. He wants revenge by wrecking the Elmore town and stealing the rainbow from the sky. Jealousy possessed the town folks and forced them to do his bidding. The player will act as Gumball and Darwin, and will aim to stop Jealousy’s evil plan by restoring the rainbow above the sky. There are 30 gripping levels wherein you will need to guide the rainbow through old sewer pipes to get back up to the sky. As Gumball, you will need to guide and protect Darwin while he fixes the pipes. With the help of Darwin’s trusty paintball gun, protect Darwin at all cost by waking up the town folk, who are under the spell of Jealousy, and shooting them otherwise they will attack your character.

There is an option to power up before the next level, so make sure to strategize your power point wisely and prepare for the upcoming stages.

Unblock the pipes and protect darwin from the possessed towns folk!

Apart from English, the game comes in other languages: Arabic, French, Italian, Turkish, Korean, Japanese, Spanish, Portuguese, and Russian.

As of the moment, Rainbow Ruckus garnered 94% of 5-star rating with an overall review rate of 4.1-star at the Goole Play Store, while the App Store gave this game a Rated 4+ score.

The app can be installed on Android devices running 2.3 Gingerbread and above version. Meanwhile, App Store only allows iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch with iOS 7.0 and later version to install the game. Apple noted that The Amazing Gumball app is already optimized for the new iPhone 6 to fit its 4.7-inch screen and maximize its faster A8 chip with 64-bit power.

Lite version of the app with eight free stages is also available at the Google Play Store.

Additional Tip:

The game itself is engaging and fun, but it will be best played on an Android handset with wide view panel and powerful graphic chipset. During our review, we used the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge.

App Review: Good Puppy Dig

good puppy digFor some reason, dogs have a bizarre fascination with bones, and will go to any length to dig them up. Good Puppy Dig is an iOS game that introduces us to Roger, a dog who will stop at nothing to dig up as many delicious bones as he can, and of course, it's up to you and your dextrous fast reactions to help him.

The idea of this game couldn't be simpler; tap left and right to guide the puppy in either direction as he digs deeper in search of bones while avoiding 'hypnotic' crystals that block your way. The deeper you dig, and the more bones you collect, the closer you get to unlocking additional scenarios.

good puppy digScenarios include 'Snow Dig', 'Puppy Dive', 'Night Dig' and 'Lucky Roger', each of which gives Roger a new look, and adds some extra variety to the gameplay as a reward. You can use your skill to unlock these extras, or pay $0.99 to unlock everything and remove the ads in one go.

Good Puppy Dig has a distinctive look, with vibrant colors and cute cartoon-style graphics that work pretty well on the iPhone, and the game as a whole is well presented, and although it's kind of minimalist, this keeps the focus on the only thing that matters for games of this type - gameplay, and it's the gameplay that really shines through here; it's both compulsive and challenging, without ever getting too frustrating.

The ease at which you can pick up this app and keep playing for hours means you'll wonder where all the time has gone, but you'll still find it hard to put down. The 'just one more go' factor is ever-present as you try once again to beat your best score.

Good Puppy Dig is a fun time-killer with some excellent presentation, and once you start digging, you won't be able to stop.
