Tapadoo is a fantastically fun puzzle game that's designed for all ages. If you like casual games that rely on touch and not controls than you're in for a fun little treat here. The game – in usual Nevosoft fashion – feature some lovely and unique looking graphics that are charming to look at, no matter whether it be tablet or phone. The game itself lets you experience it yourself, you've got puzzles to solve in order to gain coin which makes up your score, there are very little hints and it's a great way to kill some time with the kids, especially. Although, if like me, you just like funny drawings then this is awesome. Check the trailer below for a quick look:-
How It Works
There's not a lot in the way of mechanics concerning Tapadoo, all of it comes down to the puzzles. Of which are exactly that, puzzling. The game will ask you which pack of levels you want to play and it'll throw you in at the deep end. The puzzles themselves require some studying in order to solve, you need to work out what the game wants you to achieve before you can go about completing the puzzle. The puzzles get harder as you go along and a couple of times I had to really look at what the game wanted me to. Most of the time it's touch this to place it here or put things in the right order, the way the game does this however is what makes it fun.
At the top right of the screen there's a piggy bank, this will fill up with the coins you're given when you complete a puzzle but, tapping randomly across the page will cause this total to go down forcing you to think before you do.
It's clear that this game was designed with the younger audience in mind and whilst I had a lot of fun going through these puzzles I can see that children would absolutely love this. The puzzle styling is engaging and unique, the characters look as if they were hand drawn and this creates a pleasing and cohesive environment for both players young and old.
Children these days are no stranger to technology thanks to touch screens being everywhere, children will have no problem playing this and it's going to be great fun to do it with a member of the family. I found the puzzles to be well thought out and a good break from the mould regarding games that make you think.
