Gold & Chocolate Review
- Elegant visual presentation
- Basic gameplay; easy to pick up straight away.
- Plenty of levels to conquer.
- Fixed pacing adds frustration where relaxation should reign.
- Forced to restart an entire sequence of levels after failing; squanders time invested with little reward.
If you consider yourself a patient person and you want something a little less aggressive than the usual App Store title, Gold & Chocolate has you covered with its relaxed tone and simple gameplay.

While it's great to kill some time with the latest action-based arcade title, sometimes you just want to wind things back and chill out instead. Gold & Chocolate by Cocobic is all about calm and considered decisions as you attempt to sort the baddies out from the cute little good guys thanks to the light of a golden comet.
Tilting the screen will cause the comet(s) to streak their way across the screen, moving at different paces and angles depending on the level you're on. You'll need to pay attention as you only get one chance to watch the cute golden creatures as they move across the comet's light revealing their true nature. Evil creatures will be highlighted with a sinister profile and once the comet has passed you'll need to tap each one in turn to move on, losing health if you hurt a good creature. The difficulty is ramped up slowly as you go, with more enemies moving around the screen quickly to make it hard to keep track of every one, but dying can be extremely frustrating as you'll have to start the whole sequence again (of which there are 90 levels in total).
The visuals also keep things toned down with a simple two-tone and illustrated visual style and calm sound effects. Given that not much is happening it's no surprise that the game plays smoothly and Retina optimizations sharpen the images further, making it a visually pleasing game to play.
Sadly it all feels a little too relaxed and being forced to deal with comets and enemies moving at a fixed pace and not being able to tap until you're told can be infuriating unless you happen to be a very patient person. If you fancy yourself a bit of a memory master and you're after something a bit slower than the usual arcade-fair, take a swipe at Gold & Chocolate.

Any explorer would die to visit "Gold & Chocolate", a strange world with peculiar creatures and beautiful plants to be discovered.
But this is not an easy task. All the creatures in this planet look alike, sweet and adorable but, actually, some of them conceal long tentacles and ferocious mouths. You won’t be able to advance through this world if you can’t identify them.
Fortunately, the light of a distant comet will reveal who’s good and who’s bad. Don’t let their moves make you lose sight of them, because when the comet’s gone, they will all return to look just as adorable as they did before. You will have to remember which were the bad ones to be able to expel them and thus continue with your trip.
If you want playing to be a pleasure, do the following:
Find a quiet place…
Dim your lights a bit…
Get comfortable, put your headphones on...
