iBlast Moki 2
The thinking man’s Angry Birds
It’s hard to deny the cutesy appeal of the ‘Moki’, whose similar appearance to a set of disgruntled fowl is perhaps a little more than coincidental. Still, you shouldn’t be considering this as an Angry Birds clone like so many others out there, since this is a wholly different beast to contend with.
The objective is to propel each level’s set of Moki into the goal at the end. Initially this begins simply enough, using standard bombs to alter their trajectory in order to successfully navigate the landscape and enter the portal. Later, the tasks become much more complex, with the addition of numerous other objects and bomb types. Eventually, each level becomes a balancing act of various skills, with some a real challenges to overcome.
The ability to time each bomb becomes essential, feeding that one-more-go urge to perfect each level through trial and error in the hopes of collecting all the petals, finishing the level in record time and scoring that often elusive three-star rating. Moki coins can be used to unlock official developer replays, or even those of the highest scoring players. And though these are limited, their assistance is tempting enough to make them worthy of the available in-game purchase capability. There’s even a surprisingly in-depth create option where new levels can be crafted, played and shared with the world. It’s the puzzle game that keeps on giving.
Challenging, cheery and compulsive. iBlast Moki 2 is a unique puzzler.
