MadCap 

 

MadCap is one of the strangest apps I have ever played on the iPhone/iPod Touch. Players control chipmunks who worked hard to collect food. The other farm animals were lazy. So what do the chipmunks do? They throw tomatoes at the lazy farm animals. When I heard about MadCap, I thought it was making some political statement about the millions upon millions on welfare. I thought it was telling those of who work for them to get revenge.

The graphics in MadCap are bright and colorful. Throwing tomatoes at these animals and having them explode seemed really odd. I must be missing something because I did not see the point of throwing food at lazy animals that stood there and took it. I guess my sense of fair play comes in. I can understand the irritation at being enslaved to work for others to sit around and enjoy Oprah.

The music in MadCap is okay. The explosion sounds from the tomatoes got a little irritating, especially on difficult levels. The chipmunks look angry to me, which is part of this game. I am probably reading into it in terms of political statements.

MadCap includes fifty-four levels. Some of the levels are simple and others irritated me to no end. I should note that MadCap only works on the more current generations. I originally tried MadCap on an older one and it did not work. I am not clear as to why, but I did verify that. Family Friendly Gaming was given a reviewable copy of this ninety-nine cent app.

The game play is the main reason I am not that fond of MadCap. The swinging of the chipmunks is annoying. Timing is the main aspect of this game, but it can be difficult to get it just right in some levels. I also found that certain levels had to be restarted. No matter what I did I could not completed them if I made one little mistake. This goes to level design. Other levels were intelligently designed. So there is some good, and some not so good.

The main lesson in MadCap is to get revenge. I can not condone not, nor does it make the world a better place. I am not saying sit there silently when others are doing evil. Attacking them with tomatoes does not feel right to me. I think that is the biggest reason I found myself unhappy with MadCap. If I were feeding starving animals it would be a completely different story.
