I never tire of typing that title. Axe In Face! It’s a brilliant name for a game.
Good thing it’s married to such an excellent game.
Over the weekend I got a new power-up (I can now freeze enemies for a while), which is very helpful as it’s started getting a lot trickier. I really hate losing levels, too. I feel terribly guilty when the little viking chap bursts into tears as his flowers get trampled. It’s a good incentive to play well, it really is.
Also got my first Bronze medal for completing a silver, it’s all been golds and silvers before now. At the moment, though, I’m only looking for wins. Medals can come later.
After playing more Axe In Face last night, I am pleased to confirm that it is still very good indeed. I have lost a few times, but I’ve not yet got to a level that’s seemed ridiculously hard. That may yet come, though.
And here it is, my saviour. The game that slapped a smile back on my face and restored my faith in iPhone gaming.
1 – It’s called Axe In Face. Axe in Face! Brilliant!
2 – You play a viking who is guarding his lovely daffodil garden from other vikings who want to trample all over it.
3 – You guard your flowers by, well, throwing your axe around and slicing vikings in two.
4 – The game uses a simple, effective line-drawing mechanic. You draw the axe’s path, let go of the screen, wait for the axe to return to you and do it again.
5 – There are tons of levels.
6 – You earn medals when you complete levels, as well as getting a score, so there’s replay incentive even if you manage to complete every level.
7 – It’s absolutely gorgeous.
8 – It’s funny.
9 – It’s only 59p.
10 – YOU ARE A VIKING AND SLICE PEOPLE IN HALF TO STOP THEM STEPPING ON YOUR FLOWERS.
