Nokia 5800 Game Review: That Roach GameFiled Under Nokia 5800 Games
If you are the ones who scream at the very sight of a cock-roach, then read no further for this game is all about cockroaches. No, the developers are not glorifying this species for the world already knows about their holocaust survival capabilities. Instead what the game let’s you do is squash cockroaches for fun!
Yeah, we are not kidding: the That Roach Game is all about killing cockroaches. If that’s grabbed your attention, let us inform you that this is one of the engaging games we have seen on our Nokia 5800s. Wondering how engaging can smashing cockroaches be? Find out after the break.
This is a flash based game and a very good one at that, perhaps one of the very best we have seen on our 5800s. The game is based in South Africa but that doesn’t mean the rest of the world is left out of this fun. Infact if you see the top 20 countries in the scores, South Africa doesn’t even figure in the list! That goes on to show how much people around the world are enjoying squashing these roaches.
While just squashing may not sound very engaging, developers have made it all the while more entertaining by adding social networking to the game. Well not exactly social networking like Facebook games but the game statistics which are displayed country-wise as we talked about earlier and the “shout” option add that networking fun to the game.
What we like?
- Engaging gameplay with increasing difficulty over time
- Social Networking Twist is fun
- Provides a wealth of information on roaches and their spread across South African cities
What we don’t like?
- Perhaps they should add a few other rodents!
With the Soccer world cup heading to South-Africa, the municipal authorities may not do much to get rid of the roaches but we can assure you that gamers across the world will definitely give the roaches a tough time, albeit in a virtual world! So do your bit to get rid of the roaches before the World-cup fever catches on with the African nation.
