Picnic Wars HD 

 

The fruit and the vegetables are at war in Picnic Wars HD on the iPad. Players launch fruit and vegetables at the enemies fortresses. Launching veggies with catapults is one of the most different things this reviewer has ever done. Tomatoes became a quick favorite, but more powerful fruits and veggies are unlocked as the game progresses.

The bad fruits are not helpless though. They throw things like forks at your catapults and what you are sending their way. They can destroy what you launched before it hits. This is not a pleasant thing, and can lead players to have to plant more. There are a limited amount of seeds so caution is definitely advised.

The fruit and veggies look hilarious in Picnic Wars HD. There is some mild violence as we are destroying various defenses. The fruit we destroyed gets squashed with two eyes looking at us. That is before it vanished. This looks something like we see in Looney Tunes cartoons. If your cool with those you are cool with these. If that violent content bothers you then Picnic Wars HD will bother you.

The music in Picnic Wars HD helps to spread the fruit versus veggie war zone. In other words its on the funny side. The WMG can not go any further in this review without referencing Bananas Comedy. A partnership with that franchise would have fit perfectly with Picnic Wars HD. Maybe in an update or a sequel.

There are sixty-four levels in Picnic Wars HD, and two difficulty settings for them. Players collect specific items in the levels to improve their launchers, grow a super powerful pumpkin and more. The price of Picnic Wars HD is really good on the iPad. We are talking $1.99. It is possible there will be additional levels released in the future. The WMG feels Picnic Wars HD is a good deal.

There is a launch guide in Picnic Wars HD to give the player a general idea where the item will land. It does not go completely to its landing spot so there is some guessing involved. Picnic Wars HD is kind enough to provide the player enough seeds to get the needed launch fruits and veggies. There are also seeds in the fortresses, which are attained by hitting.

The WMG has never played an app like Picnic Wars HD before. Families can learn angles as well as differences between destructive forces. For example a tomato is stronger than a mushroom, and will do more damage. A bottle will shoot harder than a spoon launcher. Ultimately Picnic Wars HD can teach kids how much fun it is to eat their fruits and veggies.
