I love writing reviews for Family Friendly Gaming. The iPhone/iPod Touch is not my preferred platform. I prefer playing console games. I kept my mind open to apps. I am so glad that I did. Gu Morning is one of the most interesting ideas for a game I have ever come across. Gu Morning is part Tetris, and part action game. There is this little chick who wants to be like the rooster. Just like how boys want to be like their fathers, or girls want to be like their mothers. Sometimes little boys want to be like their big brothers.
The images in Gu Morning are small. The rooster, the chick, and the blocks. The backgrounds in Gu Morning are generally bland. Which is fine with me. Other gamers might expect a little more pizazz but I have learned to be content with whatever God provides. There is some mild cartoon violence as your little chick can be blown up, and squashed. I do not know why Apple missed it in their rating system.
The music in Gu Morning is ton of fun. I love listening to the music while playing this app. The special effect sounds also bring a smile to my face. The best sound in Gu Morning is when a level is completed. One of the reasons is some of these levels can take forever to beat.
Why do the levels in Gu Morning take forever to beat? Well the blocks that come down, come down in a random order. This means it can take forever to complete a level. Which can be a problem since Gu Morning includes a timer. Every level has to be beaten in a certain amount of time. Or it is game over. I don’t always know when I will get the right blocks to successfully complete a level. There are enough levels in Gu Morning to warrant the ninety-nine cent price. I spent most of my time replaying levels because I did not get the right selection of blocks to win. This actually lead to frustration. And that hurt my game play experience. Which is a shame because Gu Morning could have been one of the greatest games of all time.
Gu Morning taught me a few fun life lessons. First thing I learned to is get to the exit. The next thing I learned was to build stairs to the exit. I also learned to avoid bombs, and other hazards. Timing is amazingly important in Gu Morning. I squashed my poor little chick because I was off in the timing.
Gu Morning is
one of those games with all kinds of potential thanks to its creative
intelligent design. The implementation of the intelligent design is
sadly lacking. Maybe an update, or a sequel will improve things in Gu
