This week’s free app is the puzzle adventure game Love You to Bits. Normally it’s $4, but you can get it free from iTunes until Thursday, March 16th.
What Is It?
This game starts with an adorable, but dark, story. Kosmo watches his robot girlfriend blow up. He’s left holding her severed head. Again, I said it was dark. Your goal is to solve puzzles and help him find the robot’s body parts.
The cute graphics and soundtrack make the game interesting and a little weird. It doesn’t provide hints or much direction. You’re on your own in the game. Skeletons, zombies and other things that go bump in the night appear.
Who Is It Good For?
I wouldn’t recommend this for younger kids. The violent start of the game, I think, might be disturbing to kids. If you let your children watch Bugs Bunny however, then go for it. The puzzles might be a bit hard to solve for children and they’ll get bored pretty easy.
The target audience in this game is probably young adults on up. I couldn’t get into the game personally. The cute factor was annoying. Give me a puzzle to solve without so much backstory!
Should You Download It?
The app takes up about 300MB and requires an iPad 2 on up. I never made it past the first few levels and quickly deleted this. Then again, if you love robots and severed body parts, perhaps this is for you!
