Little Acorns is one of the latest platform games from the publishing masterminds at Chillingo, and I’m beginning to think that there are a lot of closet Mega Man fans out there. Not that the premise or atmosphere is anything like those games, but Little Acorns can get tough! Thankfully it’s fun as well, though there are times when playing a level repeatedly can get frustrating, especially when it’s one small spot on the level that’s giving you grief. I honestly wasn’t quite sure about this game when I started playing it, but I’d say that Little Acorns is another solid platform game release from one of the leaders in iPhone game publishing.
This week things seemed a bit quiet on the App Store front, but there were still a few games that caught my eye. The leader of the pack was League Of Evil 2, the sequel to one of the best platform games on iOS devices. It sounds like it does everything the first one did but better, and as much fun as the first one was that can only be a good thing. Rhythm game fans had a couple of interesting choices this week, but the more intriguing one was Beat Sneak Bandit. The game combines rhythm, puzzle and stealth elements with visuals that look like something out of a cartoon and what I presume will be some slick music. Finally, those that are tired of just buying Boardwalk can finally manage the hotel that sits on it with Monopoly Hotels. This business management sim takes you behind the scenes of the famous Monopoly board, it’s universal, and it won’t cost you a penny.
