Whack-a-mole style games have a tendancy to be a bit boring on the App Store, if only because they're an 'easy' idea for those out to make their first title. However, Junglestew by WEBER Mobile Games doesn't mess about and you'll have to be on your A-game to accurately punch out each 'Livingstone' as they attempt to escape the cannibal's stew.
What's really surprising about Junglestew is the addition of 21 challenge modes that will test your accuracy and skill for each of the game's aspects. Earlier levels will have you punching down as many people as you can in to the stew, while later levels require far more accuracy as the Livingstone's get more lively and attempt to jump at the screen to block your view. It's a great way to get your skills polished up for the Arcade mode where you'll slowly have to deal with faster and more aggressive Livingstone's with each new level you earn.
While the animations are fairly simple, the cartoonish style is fun to watch, from angry Livingstone's that are clearly unimpressed with being in a pot of stew, to the cannibals themselves who can't wait to dive in to their giant meal. Open Feint is also supported for online score boards.
Ultimately Junglestew doesn't do anything too new with the 'whack-a-mole' gameplay, but for those after an energetic and amusing variation on this classic style then this is definitely worth checking out.
DescriptionJunglestew takes the classic ‘whack-a-mole’ gameplay to a new level!
This game is all about hitting the Livingstone’s, those cuddly adventurers, back into your stew. It wouldn’t be much of a stew without them you know. To save the flavor of the stew you have to tap the screen to hit the Livingstone back into the stew. But it won’t be easy. They will try anything to jump out of the cooking pot. If they jump at you, just shake the screen to get rid of him. Don’t let them escape!
Frogs are a different story. Frogs are no good in stew (everyone knows that), so don’t hit them and let the frogs jump out of the cooking pot. Good luck and Bon Appétit!
