History Of The World
History Of The World is one of the most interesting apps I have ever played on the iPod Touch. The earth is in the middle of the screen, and rocks (of varying sizes) are flying around. Many are going straight for our favorite little planet. Yeah I know it is the only planet we know, so by default it has to be our favorite. Like anyone is going to tell their planet the don't like it. Good luck with that. Anyways this game takes players through history at a very high level.
The earth spins nice on the backdrop of space. I rarely got to appreciate the planet in History Of The World because I was constantly tapping these rocks, and sometimes an alien ship. I love how one alien ship could come to earth and wipe out the human population. Then die from a virus shortly afterwards. History Of The World has a sense of humor since it let me know the planet was available for rent.
The first hundred or so times I played History Of The World I did not notice the music. I realized when I was starting this review that I had no idea what the music was like in this app. So I spent some more time with the game, and focused on the music. The special effect sounds are good in History Of The World, and the music is majestic. This game portrays the old earth concept as well as evolution.
There is an addictive nature to History Of The World, as well as three difficulty settings. I found that different things can happens. Aliens may invade earth, and then later destroy it. Or they may decide to destroy the planet. Family Friendly Gaming was given a reviewable copy of History Of The World. We did not have to spend the ninety-nine cents. So the price is pretty low. I just wish the whole old earth, and evolution teachings were not present.
Generally History Of The World controls well. A high percentage of the rocks I touched exploded. There were a few that I was sure I touched, but they kept on coming. With such a small screen, and high rates of speed means the planet gets hit. You can take a few hits, but this can lead to frustration. I am not sure if it was user error, or game related, but worth a mention.
I know of numerous scientific facts that point towards a young earth. I know that some people get extremely agitated in the debate on this issue. History Of The World comes out on the side of old earth, and also preaches evolution. Family Friendly Gaming does not support those teachings. Some may consider that controversial, but there are media outlets who agree with these teachings and rate games higher because of them. We are trying to offer a little balance to an industry that is in much need of diversity.
