Ice Cream Nomsters
If you have fond childhood memories of chasing out the door after a musical ice cream truck in a crazed desire for the sugary, cold treat, have I got a question for you: what if, instead of chasing after the truck, it came directly to your house and delivered the ice cream straight to your door? Well, this mind-blowing premise is the foundation behind Firedroid's free mobile game, Ice Cream Nomsters. Available for those who sport either an iOS or Android device, this time management title has you controlling a neighborhood ice cream truck in its delivery of its precious sweet cargo to each home as it is requested. Be it of the green or red variety (pistachio or cherry?), you've got all palettes covered.
To move your delivery truck, you swipe your finger over your device along the desired route. If your drive takes you past a home you can satisfy, well it will just stop there on its own to do just that. But, before you even think of fulfilling a house's order, you have to drag your vehicle to the nearest filling station. After all, you can't just ignore the fact that it's impossible for a truck to hold an infinite number of cones (but please do ignore the fact that you're delivering to a variety of monstrous creatures). If you find that along the route you've set for the truck, you've made an uncharacteristic error in calculation and need to adjust, well, you can simply drag out a new set of moves by swiping straight from the rig. On the other hand, if you've been precise and careful, you can continue your well-plotted course by dragging from the white circle that indicates the end of your directed set of instructions. Whether you're a perfectionist or sport a full set of butterfingers, this game has you covered!
Firedroid has done a great job in many aspects of Ice Cream Nomsters. From the simple controls to the bright colors and cutesy monsters, everyone can find something to appreciate about this mobile arcade game. On the flip side, the cycling of layouts you may have to play in order to afford unlocking the next cityscape or the next driving speed upgrade can be repetitious. But fear not, impatient readers, for in-app purchases for more gold can quickly come to save the day! But fear not, frugal readers, for the entire game is playable without said purchases! Whether you're looking for an entertaining time killer while on the bus or yet another game with which to dominate over your Facebook friends, Ice Cream Nomsters is sure to satisfy that particular tooth.
