I seem to be have encountered quite a number of Apps just recently whose sole purpose would appear to be to make me look completely stupid. God knows, I don't need any additional help on that score. 'Furiosity' is but the latest puzzle game to completely run rings round me. I don't understand it, I can see no way of ever getting the better of it and, to cap it all, it's making me feel extraordinarily intimidated just being in its presence.
The little instructional video makes it look mysterious and fairly straightforward. Maybe it is, but not when your head's as chock full of sawdust as mine obviously is. There are 144 levels but, I can state quite categorically, I would need to outlive Methuselah in order to get to the end of them. My wheels came off big style at level 5. Yes, that's right - 5. Pathetic aren't I? And I suspect I only got that far because I had absolutely no idea what I was doing. I just jabbed my index finger at the screen completely randomly and, hey presto, blocks started changing colour and somehow managed to give me a leg up to the next level. By level 5 though, I reckon I was starting to actually try to think about what I was doing... and thinking is never a good idea, certainly not in my case.
I stand completely humbled before 'Furiosity'. And still, extraordinarily, intimidated. So intimidated in fact, that I feel very nervous about giving it anything less that four stars. But, irrespective of the fact that it is doubtless going to draw attention to my distinct lack of brains, any App that makes me cry and feel like I'm being picked on deserves no more than three stars from me. And I'm only awarding them because I feel sure there is a challenging little game in here, somewhere. It's just a shame that I don't have the brain cells at my disposal to ever have a hope of finding it, that's all.
