Crossy Road

Crossy Road

Crossy Road is another app that has been climbing the Google Play ladder lately so we decided to take a look at it. Is it any good – read on to find out!

The app is a simple one at around 21 MB so if you do not expect much out of it, you will be right. The main idea is to take a chicken as far as you can but if this seems like a simple task it is not as the chicken will have to cross various roads, highways and even rivers. Controlling the chicken is simple – just tap the display in the direction in which you want the chicken to go and this is it. You will need perfect timing for this action though as even a single bad move will get you killed on a road or highway. As you can imagine you have a single life and if you die you will have to start anew although on a different map.

Apart from the gameplay, which by the way is addictive, Crossy Road does not deliver a lot. The graphics are especially simple – they look like they have been taken from a PC game from the early 1990s or from a Minecraft world but you will have to live with this. You can’t expect much from such a game, though – like we said it is just about 21 MB in size and everything inside is simple. This, on the other hand, will allow you to get into the action quickly and without any problems so simplicity has its positive sides.

Crossy Road is an average game whose power lies in the addictive gameplay. We suspect, though, that tapping on a display in order to get the perfect timing will make you bored after some time so we can’t say you will be playing this game for a long time. If this isn’t a problem for you, you can take a look at this app – it will keep you occupied for at least a few hours.

Crossy Road is here on Google Play.
