Sir Lovalot [rating: 4/5]
Sir Lovalot for iPhone has been developed by Hungry-Game the creators of Fly Kiwi, Fly! (View in iTunes) In this game your objective is to climb the infinite tower to rescue Sir Lovalot’s beloved princess. Avoid the traps as you climb and see how high you can go.
The game is similar to the popular jumping games like Doodle Jump (View in iTunes). Sir Lovalot needs to climb the vertical tower and rescue his princess. To do this you need to use the tilt controls on your device. Tap the screen to start and then he is off on his endless journey.
Where this differs to the rest is that this is a 3D tower and you have to jump around it as the tower spins round and round. Scattered around the tower are steps for you to jump on. Jump from one to the other and hope as you move further, there is another to jump on. If not and you only have a short fall he will be ok. If it is a big drop I’m afraid Sir Lovalot will fall to an untimely death and needless to say never reach his princess.
You have to also watch out for the many traps scattered around. Fires that will burn him and spikes that will give him a huge fright. Luckily you will get three lives to use if you do happen to sit on a spike or other trap so he won’t always die straight away.
As you climb higher and higher you should eventually meet a princess and rescue her. You collect your points and keep on going to rescue more that are trapped above.
When Sir Lovalot is climbing the tower he can also collect items along the journey. This is your loot, after each game you can see what loot you have collected in the ‘Ye Olde Collectibles’ and if you tap on it, it will give you a description of what it is. See how many you can collect!
The graphics are really nice and Sir Lovalot looks great climbing the tower and spinning his sword as he goes. The only thing that did become annoying was the sound that he made. Every time he jumped he would constantly repeat ‘up little buddy!’ I could only take it for so long and then had to turn the sound off. He really did say it far too many times.
The game is a good pick up and play game that can be played anytime and becomes very addictive. It is one of those games that you want to try over and over to beat your own score. To add to the challenge it is integrated with Open feint to compete with your friends.
- Great graphics
- Very addictive
- Some of the sound effects are annoying.
- Would be great to have Game Center Integration
