Minigore is a survival shooter by Chillingo. $0.99

Minigore is the latest survival shooter game from the publishers who brought the the hit iDracula. This time everything has been given a cute touch over with a brilliant cartoon world to frolic and play in, or is it? Minigore probably isn't as in depth at this stage as iDracula, but great graphics and alleged future updates bringing more amazing characters like Enviro-Bear and Lizzie from Sway should improve the game. What makes this game good though is the brilliant graphics and sound effects coupled with the easy pick up and play nature of this game. But is it worth it at its current price? Keep reading to find out if I think it does the game justice.

Minigore has, as I said above, great graphics that really make this game feel like it is a feel good game with bunny wabbits and love hearts. This is certainly proved wrong when you find yourself, a 3D human, running around beautifully created trees and bushes escaping and shooting various sized black blobs of evil. This game is almost all in 3D, with some bushes etc. being in 2D, but it looks absolutely amazing. There are no dodgy points in the game with everything from the smallest evil blob to the raging animal version of John Gore being beautifully hand crafted for the iDevice. I found this better graphically than iDracula, with that not as clear and colorful as Minigore.

Minigore has some brilliant sound effects that don't seem to fit the shooter genre but work so well. Basically you have small popping noises everytime you fire your gun and the random roar when you kill the bigger black blobs. John Gore also has some input with a witty comment about that game that can give you a bit of a giggle and make you lose concentration. One example I found of this is, "Oh come on, how many of these are there? I've already killed 100 of them!"

This game is pretty easy to get the hang of straight away. The controls are as simple as it gets, yet the game is really challenging. The only controls in this game are two D-Pads which are located on the bottom of the screen. One lets you control where John Gore moves around and the other lets you choose where and when to shoot. The controls are similar to iDracula but are slightly different in the way the D-Pads work.

What I felt disappointed by the most in Minigore is the lack of content. Even in iDracula's first version the ranks and multiple game modes kept me coming back for more. Minigore only has one game mode with two difficulty levels. This is a bit disappointing and even though it is quite fun, doesn't give me much game time. I am now finding myself after a few weeks with limited play hoping for more game modes, basically hoping they deliver with good updates to the game. The aim of Minigore is go around the landscape and kill as many blobs as possible without dieing. This is quite hard as you only have two lives as such. The first time you are touched by a blob you lose some of your clothes and get some cool cuts and such. The second time you keel over and die while the blobs seem to swarm around your body. This is an entertaining game that will last you a good five minutes on both easy or hard and the willingness to improve will keep bringing you back to this game.

Minigore is a fun and hilarious pick up and play shooter which will be a joy to play for all those many fans of iDracula. While the amount of gameplay of Minigore isn't where I think it should be as of yet, the future updates should hopefully bring this game up to scratch and be a amazing, not just great, shooter. Once again Chillingo have picked a great title to publish and hopefully this success can bring Mountain Sheep to create many more great titles with the same level of love and care put into the life of John Gore.

Gameplay- 7/10
Graphics- 9.5/10
Sound- 9/10
Overall- 8/10

I would recommend this game if you enjoyed- iDracula

Can't wait for the update.. It took long enough! Minigore didn't have enough content when it was first released, and I preferred iDracula over it back then. Hopefully the update changes all that.

Minigore was pretty fun for the first hour of gameplay or two, but, for me, it got old fast. The graphics are awesome, but there's nothing really making me want to play it again.

Minigore 신속하게 이전 취득한 날 그럼에도 불구하고 아마도 게임 플레이 또는 2,,,과 관련된 1 시간 동안 꽤 즐겁게했다. 작품은 일반적으로 놀라운 있지만, 실제로 제가 개인적으로 다시 참여하고자 생성 아무것도 없습니다.

Nice review buddy! Minigore is indeed a nice game and I have been playing for a while now. It’s nothing like iDracula, which I also love to bits, but it has some really cool elements. Graphically it’s also not bad at all! An overall 8/10 grade is fair and I really hope that they keep working on improvements and upgrades!
