Ever wanted to punt your neighbor’s lawn gnome as far as you could, just for fun? With Chuck Gnome from Triplepoint Client Movable Sprites you can do just that without ticking off your neighbors or getting in trouble with the law. Chuck Gnome not only allows you, but encourages you to fling a gnome at targets on the screen.
To fling Chuck, you simply pull the band back and release. Depending on how far back you pull the band determines how far Chuck flies and hits targets. Each target has a certain point value assigned to it, and you can earn combinations by hitting as many targets in a row as possible without missing. For each round, you are given 100 seconds to score as many points as possible.
Chuck Gnome features a somewhat silly style with cartoonish graphics and cinematic music to compliment. The strength of the game lies in its simplicity in play style, and focused controls.
Overall, there are six levels to play, with each having increasing difficulty as you move on. In order to pass levels and unlock more, you must earn a certain amount of points in the current level you are playing. In that way, Chuck Gnome can also present a considerable amount of challenge. OpenFeint also tends to help in the way of challenge as you will feel rewarded having accomplished certain goals within the game.
If you’d like to check out Chuck Gnome for yourself, be sure to download it from the iTunes App Store when it releases this Wednesday, August 4th.
