Combo Critters is an interesting arcade game that has been designed for small children. Yet it can attract even grown-ups with its simple but addictive gameplay.
The app comes with a short tutorial and an even shorter story behind. In a few words you have to explore the galaxy, find planets with life on them and then investigate the life forms that you have just discovered. You use a robot to navigate the planet and when you encounter an animal then a fight ensues. Win the fight and get the species to your spaceship for examination. Then you can use the defeated animals as your servants to fight other enemies or you can combine them into new and unique species. The addictiveness of the game lies in the fact that you never know what’s behind the corner so you are in for some surprises.
The problem with Combo Critters is that the game comes with simple sound effects that resemble an arcade game from the 1980s. The same can be said of the visuals – the game is heavily pixilated and although the developers claim the graphics are great, we kind of don’t think so. On the other hand Combo Critters is a casual arcade game and maybe we cannot complain too much but like we said – do not expect great eye candy from this app.
All in all Combo Critters is a fun game if you can live with the shortcomings that come with it. The game comes with fun and addictive gameplay and this is what matters the most so we are willing to forgive the visuals and the simple sound effects. But then again you can rarely have it all in one package. Given that Combo Critters comes with fun gameplay, we recommend this game, and more so if you have a child around you – they will have fun for sure!
