Milk My Unicorn Review

2 out of 5

PROS

  • Amusing art style.
  • Basic gameplay anyone can follow.
  • Unlockable 'free-play' modes.

CONS

  • It's Simon-Says... 'nuf said.

VERDICT

Milk My Unicorn is a whacky idea and fun for a short while, but it tries to strike two different audiences with its childish gameplay and adult (or at least mature) theme, so there's just no workable middle ground to appreciate.

Today we're keeping things short and sweet here at AppSpy and what a better game for keeping things on the move than Milk My Unicorn by Splashworks.

When you get right down to it, Milk My Unicorn is just another 'Simon Says' title and players are given the opportunity to demonstrate their recall skills by pulling the teats of various animals (fictitious or otherwise) while doing so. Once you've conquered a specific animal you'll unlock a 'free play' mode to milk them at your own leisure, though why you'd want to do that is entirely beyond me.

Other than the game's somewhat silly, but fun John K inspired character designs, it's surprising to see so much effort going in to making the udders of each animal jiggle when pulled. This is pulled off with some 3D visual trickery with a physics engine and once again I'm surprised at the dedication taken in making something like this.

Ultimately this is a still only a memory based title and given the gameplay and theme I'd probably suggest this for younger audiences, but I'd seriously question the adult that would let their kid play this game. Milk My Unicorn is good for a brief laugh, but beyond that it's an easy game to ignore.
