Spikey Walls on the Wii U is similar to the mobile game Flappy Bird.
Will Spikey Walls generate all of the controversy Flappy Bird did? Will
Spikey Walls cause people to commit suicide in the real world? I do not
know the answers to those questions. Time will tell.
I want to be very clear on something. Your life has value. Please do not kill yourself or anyone else because of frustration inside a video game. I had to get that off my chest as a responsible video game journalist. I do not want people killing themselves or others because of video games.
The goal of Spikey Walls is simple. Stay airborne without touching anything. Players will fly in between spikes. Each spike you cross adds one to your score. The farther you can go, the higher your score. Spikey Walls lets you post your score on Miiverse if you choose to do so.
If you make a mistake in Spikey Walls you get an UH-OH screen where you can replay, or go back to the main menu. Spikey Walls is very addicting. I wanted to play over and over again trying to beat someone else's high score. I eventually did so and was then able to take a break.
Graphically Spikey Walls is okay. That background wall graphic is mesmerizing. The music and any sounds near you can be extremely distracting. I muted the television set to play Spikey Walls. Guess what? I played so much better without the sound.
RCMADIAX opened a big can of worms with Spikey Walls. There are strong emotions, and opinions surrounding this downloadable only franchise. And now it is on the Wii U. Spikey Walls sells for $0.99. A bargain basement price for a game like this one.
