Sometimes we crave the simple things in mobile gaming life. Slicing up melons, hurling birds at precarious stacks of timber and pork, or smashing bricks with a tap of the screen.
Smash Fu taps into that simplicity, amps up the challenge a little, and leaves you hammering the screen like a lunatic. Albeit a lunatic in the best possible way.
Bricks, fortune cookies, and all manner of other things cascade down the screen, and it’s up to you to smash them before they reach the bottom. Oh, and you need to avoid tapping bombs as well. Because bombs explode, and explosions are the enemy of kung fu.
The game riffs heavily on the Fruit Ninja template, and it’s core gameplay is clearly rooted in Piano Tiles — but it throws in some influences from arcade blasters too, like Point Blank. There are bonus levels, points for flawless levels, and a zany thread of humour that runs through everything.
Sure it’s not the most complex game out there, but if you’re looking for something you can – quite literally – bash through on the bus to work, then you could do a lot worse than checking this out.
Smash Fu is out right now on the App Store for free, and if you like your mobile games throwaway and fast-paced then give it a crack.
