Smash It Up is a Target game by Tag Games. $0.99
I reviewed this game while it was All Stars Quarterback. It is basically the same apart from instead of using a football, Smash It Up uses bricks. I quite enjoyed this game with its simple gameplay and great design. There are two different game modes, versus and time attack to play. I will go into detail about these later on. This game kept me coming back for more all the time, a very addictive game.
The graphics in this game are super impressive for a $1 game. There aren't many games for $1 that I have seen put these sorts of graphics in their game and pull it off as well as Tag Games have. I decided to be different when I first played the game and chose to do Time Attack and lost half of the time just looking at everything. The game is very polished and responds well with what you want to do. It is easy to control and to zoom in and out to find what to hit.
I quite liked the sound on the intro screen. It seemed to fit well with the theme of the game, but I was disappointed that there was no music at all in the game, just sound effects throwing the brick and hitting objects. I would like to see an option to maybe have the music on in-game for people who want it on.
The game as said above has two game modes, versus and time attack. In versus you can choose easy one player or two player. I love two player as it becomes a big strategy game as we will be hunting around for the best items to hit. In one player there are three difficulty levels. In each one of these modes you choose who you are playing with out of four choices. They have no special attributes or anything, just who you like. There are four rounds of the game where each person who three throws at hitting stuff. It gets harder to score big points as going second in round 4 on your last throw means that 23 items could possibly already be hit. Smaller items will give you more points and the person with the most points at the end wins. Time Attack is different in that instead of versing an opponent you are versing the clock. As soon as you start the clock starts counting down from 90 seconds. These modes are both fun but some things I believe could be added to keep you coming back for more. I would like to see choices to change where to play and have three or four options. After a while there is nothing exciting on the current area as I know where it all is. I would also like to see a highscores board for Time Attack so there is some competition brought into the game.
This is an excellent pick up and play game that has the potential to become more. The current version is an excellent way to relieve your stress by smashing a window or two. Very unique gameplay that is super fun to play. I would recommend you to consider buying this game.
I would recommend this game if you enjoyed- All Stars Quarterback
