If you say that you ain’t afraid of no germs than I dare you to step foot into an elementary school classroom. All those little kids contain more germs than a petri dish. Yuck! Okay, okay okay…I might have a teensy-weensy germ phobia–so I’m shocked that I spent the last couple nights playing with germs in Germy World.
Playing Germy World reminds my of the beginning days of iPhone gaming. That is because you control all of your movements by tilting your device as you would with all of the Labyrinth games that are now non-existent (well almost). This isn’t a diss in any way and in fact reminds us that using the accelerometer is a fun way to interact with what’s happening on the screen (two thumbs up for not using virtual controls!).
Everything else about Germy World feels different and separates itself from other casual games. Here the goal is to tilt a single germ into a matching colored germ in order to create a chain. Once done you will have a new and different colored germ to do the same thing with. Continue matching germs to boost up your score…but in order to do so you’ll need to complete the chain by connecting a different colored germ to the chain. The longer the chain, the higher the score. It’s that simple…or not. That’s right, chaos ensues as you fight a timer. You need to reach certain score markers that’ll add more time on the clock….Only 5 seconds left and you have a massive linked germ chain? Better tilt a different colored germ to that chain and cross your fingers that it’s enough to bump up the timer.
Like those gross germs that love to evolve, so does Germy World. Different gaming mechanics are continuously introduced every few levels. There are different germ-linking attributes, speed panels, and poisonous bubbles. The amount of variety between each level ramps up the fun-factor as well as becoming more challenging.
The Bottom Line:
Germy World brings a challenging casual gaming experience that’ll entertain and challenge no matter what your gaming skill level is.
