Sticky HD is unique in so many ways. The
storyline follows a little blob of goo that was created by scientists.
Then bad goo comes and takes control of at least one scientist. What is
a glob of goo to do? Read a Dr Seuss book? No. He goes on a quest to
stop the black goo. Levels are played in some unique settings. Players
launch their sticky friend into the bad globs of goo.
Sticky HD includes some fantastic colors. I love the orange color of the goo that we get to play with. If you let a black glob of goo get past into the pipe on the other side then the entire level darkens. I already knew I had let something get by. The distraction allowed more to get past my defenses. Which were my little guy. The various power ups are visible in some fresh ways. I love the freeze personally.
The sentient sounds in Sticky HD relaxed me. I would ease into a level thanks to the sounds of the music. The special effect sounds contrast the soothing music which is a good thing. Anymore relaxation and I may have fallen asleep while playing. Which would have made Sticky HD even more of a challenge.
We were provided a download code of Sticky HD for this review. The game retails for $1.99 on the iTunes store. I feel that there are enough levels and power ups to make Sticky HD worth the price of admission. This game is a mixture of action adventure and puzzle. Learning how your glob moves is very important.
The controls in Sticky HD can be very unique. You pull back on the slime your goo guy is connection to. This launches him into the direction that was chosen. Sticking to things and bouncing off walls works marvelously. Hitting the black goo is not always so easy. I also had problems launching myself forward towards them (I would move a few inches forward and stop). I routinely had to jump to the ceiling and come back down on them. Unless I had that giant rolling ball power up.
Physics and angles are the two main lessons in Sticky HD. I enjoyed my time with this game on the iPad. It is very different from most of the other games I play. I would like to see sequels to this game especially if the flying forward just over the goo is made more friendly. The storyline is a nice addition to an already unique game. In some ways it is the gel that holds the game together.
