Roodie Noodie and the Slippery Pole is a fun family game where you try to keep the Roodie Noodies balanced on a slippery pole. This is a game of balance that utilizes iPhone’s gyroscope to control the lean of your character on the slippery pole. While trying to balance your character you also have to collect the sparkly nurdles that float by. This forces you to lean further and further and threatens to make your lose your balance.
The control system as I mentioned before, is extremely easy. This game is of course made for kids and it certainly caters to their control abilities. The use of the gyroscope is very easy for kids to grasp, especially in this day and age when kids are so accustomed to video games. There really aren’t any more controls and that is the beauty of this game. It possesses a small learning curve and doesn’t get too complex.
Perhaps the best aspect about Roodie Noodie and The Slippery Pole is the fun loving and exciting environment that the characters and the world that you are in create. The characters are unique and interesting and they go great with this game for kids. The entire environment is upbeat and exudes fun. You have the “crafty crabs” trying to move the pole to make you fall and the “clapping clams” and “synchronized shrimps” are there to cheer you along the way. It is a great family competition that all ages can enjoy. If you are able to complete all of the levels you get the Sand Dollar Shield that is presented by Flip Flop the Seagull.
Overall the game is not overly robust but does cater well to its audience, kids. I think the characters will excite kids and the competition will give them something to strive for. It’s always nice to have something to strive for and after beating the game you can also unlock exclusive video clips. This along with everything else this game has to offer to the kids, I think it’s worth a shot.
