Family Feud & Veggie Samurai – iPhone Game Reviews

Wed, Aug 4, 2010

iPhone, Mobile

With so many games being released on the iTunes app store, it’s sometimes hard to keep up with which ones you should or shouldn’t be playing on your iPhone. Thankfully, we have the review round-up to show you the best games available on the app store, complete with summaries and reviews from all around the web.

Family Feud

Playing just like its real life, game show counterpart, Family Feud works beautifully on the iPhone complete with “Survey Says!” and Fast Money rounds to keep your blood pumping and your mind quick. To make matters even easier, the game can easily determine which answer you’re trying to type and suggest them to you, as to help offset the virtual keyboard. As with many digital editions as well, the game will accept alternate answers such as “dog” for “pet”.

The only omission that Slidetoplay points out in their review is the lack of any sort of online or bluetooth multiplayer. While the game does have pass-to-play, an option to have separate iPhone multiplayer would have been welcome. “Family Feud is worth a buy, but you don’t need to step over your own mother to get it.”

Rating: 3 out of 4. Price: $4.99.

Veggie Samurai

Remember Fruit Ninja? Well, the success of it has spawned a takeoff version faster than you can say “ripoff”. Veggie Samurai takes the concepts, ideas and gameplay of Fruit Ninja and repackages them with a key ‘dicing’ feature. Of course, Ninjas are also different from Samurais and Fruit is different from Vegetables as well, so there is some other differences to be found.

The key difference however, is the ability to dice; that is, to slice the vegetable twice in order to ‘dice’ it for extra points. TheAppEra, in their review, was quick to point out that the game is definitely a re-skin of Fruit Ninja but plays just as well. “If you’ve been wanting dicing in Fruit Ninja, or wanted an extra kick in it, Veggie Samurai is worth checking out.”

Price: 99¢.
