I tried out a new game yesterday called Bananas. While it’s made for kids, I really liked the game and had a blast playing it.
[ad#Google Adsense 300×250 in story]In Bananas, you choose between an octopus, Monkey or a hippo — I chose the monkey. Your goal is to protect 3 bananas from the incoming crabs who will try to steal the tasty fruit and run away with them.
Using the iPhone’s touchscreen, you swipe the crabs to make them go away, thus saving the bananas. If you knock one crab into another, you get bonus points. However, if you touch the little guy running across the screen, he’ll freeze you. That means the crabs can run and grab the bananas and you can’t stop them.
The freezing only lasts a few seconds giving you time to reclaim the bananas from the crabs.
Of course, the farther you get, the faster the crabs come at you. It’s great fun for kids (and adults). The game costs $0.99 until January 2, 2011.
