(SNAPP Reviews aren’t really a full fledged mobile game review as much as they are just a way for us to give you a quick “heads-up” on whether a certain iOS game is good or not. It usually means that we haven’t finished the game yet, but have played a good enough chunk to know whether it’s worth your time/money or not.)
Here’s a quick one just in time for Halloween. The game is called, PumpkinMan: Spooky Survival (by SnoMan Games).
PumpkinMan is pretty much your standard avoidance game. You play as a happy-go-lucky “Pumpkin Man” and the object is to avoid dangerous weapons that are raining from the sky for some reason. These include knives, axes, chainsaws, dynamite. You know, the arch enemies of pumpkins. You control the Orange little guy by simply sliding your thumb back and forth across the screen. Oh, that’s not all though! Every so often a skeleton will come from either side of the screen and try to attack you while you’re dodging for your pumpkin life. You just have to run up on him and knock that boney bastard’s head clean off with a Halloween haymaker and he won’t bother you anymore. Don’t let him touch you or is game over.
There’s honestly not a lot to the game. There’s a few characters that you can unlock with “candy” that you collect along the way and there are GameCenter leaderboards. That’s about it. PumpkinMan really isn’t bringing anything new to the table and with the lack of extras, the game can be forgotten pretty easily……..BUT, I’ve gotta say, the game is actually pretty fun for a short time-waster. So, if you’re looking for fun little Halloween game that you don’t have to put too much thought into, give PumpkinMan a try.
