- Simple and addictive.
- Lack of content.
Scoops is simple, fun, and addictive. There's enough to the combo mechanics to involve some strategy, but mostly this is something you'll play when you have a few minutes to waste.

Who hasn't thought of building an ice cream cone to the heavens? In Scoops, it's your goal to stack as many scoops of ice cream on top of your cone as you can, avoiding the nasty vegetables. Once you collect three vegetables, it's game over. How high can you go?
Controlling your tower of ice cream is handled by tilting the iPhone left and right. There's a level of finesse involved as you can wobble the ice cream, bounce a vegetable off the side, and grab another scoop on the other side of the screen. For every scoop you collect, your multiplier extends, granting you more and more points. The multiplier goes up even higher when you collect scoops of the same flavour (and goes down a little when you break the chain). Rainbow scoops continue chains, and star scoops give you another life.
The game is colourful and vibrant. As your cone extends skywards, you slowly pass Earth's orbit, reaching other planets in the solar system. The sounds are minimal, and the gasp whenever you make a near miss with a vegetable is amusing. There are no other modes, but you can post your high scores straght to Twitter.
Scoops is a quick, fun little time waster. It's easy gameplay and high score make you keep playing the game again, but there's not enough really there to justify the price.
DescriptionOver a million people are screaming for ice cream!
Stack your ice cream cone high into the sky by tilting the phone left and right, catching as many scoops as you can while avoiding the vegetables (veggies ARE great apart from icecream!). The higher you go, the faster they fall, and the more wobbly your tower! Stack similar colors together for extra points.
Can you stack your cone past the MOON? Throw on some tunes in iPod, and start stacking! Scoops is fun for kids and adults alike, everyone in the family can take a turn.
