Tashanna let us know about a new free game for PlayBook called Splatter Shot. It looks quite similar to pong but it is kind of the opposite. You choose one of three “ships” (they looks more like circles to me) and try to hit your opponent on the other side. You’re dodging instead of stopping. Each ship has a different shot type. The green bar below your ship is your health.
I just tried out the game with a friend and its pretty fun. I am a big fan of simple games. This one could be much better if there were a few tweaks:
- Less total health or more damage per shot. It takes way too long to end the game (quick guess is about 30 hits).
- Faster bullet speed for all ship types.
- Keep score (maybe a best of 5?).
- Online play with friends would be amazing but I’m guessing that’s tricky to implement.
