Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Daleks (App)
This is a really great game! Luckily for me I saw the all the really positive (5 star) reviews on amazon.com and so went ahead and purchased it anyway.
It is a strategy game with minimal/retro graphics (a little similar to a Minotaur puzzle) but the added goodness of daleks, tardis and sonic. Includes Dalek "exterminate" sound.
I can already tell I'm going to be spending a lot of time trying to destroy Daleks when I should be doing other more mundane things! :D
One confusing thing was the game started without a screen explaining how to play but pressing on the kindle little menu button (off to the side where the home button is hidden) brought up a menu including a help page explaining how to play. It might be better to have that as an initial screen? But I personally found it quickly so still rate it 5 stars :D
Basically you and the daleks take turn in moving across the board, they will always move towards you so you need to outwit them. If they collide with each other they are destroyed. If they touch the rubble they are destroyed. If you zap them with your sonic you can destroy them (but that has limited uses and is an emergency-only type soloution!) If they touch the tardis then you are destroyed.
Do look at screenshots because the graphics aren't flashy but for me the retro feel totally adds to the experience. I feel fairly certain the Doctor himself would love this game.
