Have you ever wanted to catch falling
fruit with a blender? Oh did I forget to mention the blender is still
running? That way when you do catch the fruit it can mix it together. If
you answered yes to those questions then you will absolutely love Happy
Day Games latest app release - Blender Express. The only thing missing
from this app is being able to drink your concoctions. Although a few of
them did not sound very appealing to me.
There are some fantastic bright colors in Blender Express. The characters are all happy, which made me wonder if some of the drinks were spiked. Thankfully these are just smoothies. If you can get three stars in a level then you are given a smoothie recipe. Blender Express includes rotten fruit which looks nasty. The good news is the graphics of the fruit are on the small side.
I enjoyed how the music in Blender Express. I never thought I would say I enjoy the sound of a blender, but I enjoyed the sound of a blender. The real world connection of the recipes in Blender Express is pretty cool. I did not find offensive sounds while playing Blender Express on the iPhone/iPod Touch. This app is also on the iPad.
Blender Express contains one hundred levels of mixing madness. The first couple ease players in, and then it starts to get complex. There are fruit that do not go into the mix, and missing one takes away a life. I seemed to only have three lives so I could only make three mistakes. Getting the wrong thing in or missing one needed both equal one mistake. This makes Blender Express frustrating. Hardcore gamers who relish in difficult games will be swimming in happiness thanks to Blender Express.
I had to be quick while playing Blender Express. I learned to pay attention to what I needed and match it to what was falling. Moving the hand held around to get to the right spot was a little tricky. The cool part is Blender Express is very forgiving. Get the blender close and the fruit, milk, ice (you get the picture) will fall right in. I can see a sequel doing really well with some tweaks. First off allow players to miss fruit without it counting against them. Grabbing the wrong thing should be penalized. I love how Blender Express has real recipes in it.
