Madcoaster 

 

Chillingo comes up with plenty of new ideas, and innovative titles that has earned them a very good reputation here at Family Friendly Gaming. They sometimes take well known concepts, and shake things up. Other times they take an exciting concept and make it better. Madcoaster is one of those other times. Madcoaster is a game that is a lot like Jetpack Joyride, just better.

The first level I played in Madcoaster was a Halloween style. So it was a little dark. We play a small roller coaster with people in it. There are coins to collect, and jumps to make. There are also animals. Madcoaster encourages us to smash and bash into birds, gorillas, and other animals. We earn points for taking them out. I did not feel very good about that personally. The graphics are a little on the small side, and areas are repeated a little too frequently for my taste.

The music is one of the greatest things about Madcoaster. I enjoyed hearing it while playing this hand held game. I also like the special effect sounds of collecting coins, and a heart every so often. Reaching one thousand meters was a real treat. And every one thousand meters after that as well. Once you get there you will know what I am talking about.

The goal of Madcoaster is to go as far as you can. Madcoaster is much kinder to families than Jetpack Joyride is. Madcoaster starts players with three hearts. That means you can make three mistakes before it is game over. This is absolutely brilliant, and it improves upon the Jetpack Joyride concept. Every so often there are hearts to be found, so in theory someone could play forever. Not that I am recommending that kind of excess.

There are two controls in Madcoaster. Tap on the screen to jump, and swipe to go down a level. There are areas where there can be more than one level of track. If you want to go one lower then you swipe. I never found an instance where I wanted to be lower though. The animals can get in the way from time to time, and that is annoying.

The lesson I learned from Madcoaster is to crush the animals that get in my way. Especially birds, there are too many of them, and they leave their deposits in the more inconvenient places. Yes I am joking around. I have no problem with using animals for food, but going on a killing spree does not interest me.
