I'm not the biggest gamer out there, but I do like cute, cool and nifty little games occasionally and that would definitely include Foursaken Media's very cute, cool and nifty game of Sky Gnomes which TouchArcade recently reviewed here.
As you can see in Touch Arcade's video above, this an engaging little game in which you are a gnome speeding straight down through the sky while riding a homebuilt rocket as you try to collect as many snowflakes, coins and other items, as you can in an effort to reach a landing zone as quickly as you possibly can, or as Foursaken Media's officially puts it:
Welcome to the world of Sky Gnomes! These little guys live high in the clouds and have only one passion in life: racing! Every day they're tinkering with their snow engines, building new parts and customizing others to go as fast as possible - falling straight down! Take control of one of these speed-obsessed gnomes and enter into the daily Sky Gnomes Tournament, where you'll be competing against players from all over the world in one of the most interesting multiplayer racers to ever hit the App Store! Customize your engine, dodge dangerous weather, and race like never before in this simple to learn, pick-up-and-play racer. Every day is a new chance to become a Sky Gnomes Champion, so get racing!
Sounds like fun, hah? Well, it is, and what is even better is that the developers have now just sweeten the game with the first of many planned content updates. The biggest addition of Sky Gnomes is that it has added two brand spanking new characters to the game, namely: Girly, the female racer, and the ever so skinny racer aptly named, of course,...... Skinny! Both of these new characters come with their very own set of unique rocket stats, which offer a fresh change of pace from the original racer Gnomey. However, these new racers don’t exactly come cheap, as they'll set you back a whopping 10,000 coins.
All-in-all, and in conclusion, Sky Gnomes is a great game and a great addition to any iPhone or iPad gaming library, and its just one of the many fine games that you'll find featured and reviewed from TouchArcade, who gave the game a four-and-a-half star rating.
And that's my 2 cents 4 this rainy, but mild, Friday, April 27, 2012
