Tired of your sword slaying, strategic level up and mind puzzling games? Try this simple yet refreshing game from the App Store (launched March 15, 2012). I love retro games and Super Lemonade Factory ($1.99 via iTunes, universal) caught my heart. It gives me a refreshing break from the usual RPG level up games in my iPad. The visual presentation is so classic (reminds me of our all time favorite; Super Mario Bros.).
Meet the characters of the story are Andre and Lisolet. Andre will take over his father’s lemonade factory, he has some strength like carrying and breaking big boxes and crates. Lisolet is Andre’s wife. Andre needs to meet the workers and tour the whole factory with his wife Lisolet before he can take his father’s lemonade factory.
While Andre can break big crates and boxes that blocks their way, Lisolet can jump and reach perches that Andre cannot reach. Lisolet is also has the ability to speak and get attention from the workers. It is really a perfect team up. Each one’s strength accompanies one’s weakness.
The story might sound plain but as you play it you will see that there is something fishy going on. It seems that there are traps that are really meant to hurt or kill Andre.
Having Fun: How to Play the Game
Playing this game is really simple. The on screen controls are really easy to use. Make the characters run, jump and dash is not as hard as you might think. But do not over tap the controls you might mis-tap the buttons, like swapping Andre with Lisolet (remember Andre can’t jump high).
The game has dialogues; Lisolet needs to speak with all the workers so that she will earn achievements. You may find the game a bit plain (I did find it little boring when it comes to the visuals)
I already played lots of classic games. I agree that sometimes this type of game is a bit boring. Pushing, breaking and jumping are a bit childish but I bet that you might find this game a bit interesting. There are some levels that are not that easy as you think. Besides from pushing and breaking crates you also have to avoid spike traps.
The pixilated graphics added to its classic looks, and its background music adds up to it. I mean the game is pretty simple, for me it is like a desert after every meal. I like to play this game whenever I get tired with the usual level up games (for a change). One thing more I like in this game is kids will also enjoy it, because the controls are so easy to use and besides they don’t usually see this type of games.
Super Lemonade Factory, has some things to work on to but it doesn’t stop them to make us have fun while playing. The game is simple but makes me enjoy playing it and it is really easy to recommend.
