An oldie but a goodie; simple, fun tilt gameplay
I love the "twitch" style of gameplay found in tilt/accelerometer games and Pollywog doesn't disappoint! The premise is simple: as you swim upstream, collect all the "yum yums" and cross the finish line before the timer runs out to obtain the highest score which unlocks the next set of levels. The upbeat music is cute and charming and while the graphics are simple, they still look very good. There are no fancy tricks going on here: simple yet fun and addicting gameplay. I really wish Game Center achievements and leaderboards were included in Pollywog but that's impossible as Game Center was launched September 2010, a couple months after Pollywog's last update (which was June 2010). =..( Also missing are Retina visuals (which also debuted before this game's last update) but the icon has received the HD treatment and Pollywog still looks the same on non-Retina devices as it does on Retina devices. Overall, Pollywog is a great "old school" game (by App Store standards).
Cute and addictive. It's really challenging trying to get all the stars, and the game is great for playing in short bursts when you're trying to kill a few minutes. It seems like it gets dinged by some folks for difficulty, but I think that's what makes it last; there's a good mix of easy levels and longer term challenge.
I like this game. Nice artwork and design.
Easy at first, but gets harder with the upper levels.
Still fun to play!
