Land It Rocket
Land It Rocket is a downloadable only Wii U video game with
twenty-eight levels. The name of this game accurately describes what we
do. We launch a rocket, and then guide it toward to the landing zone.
The last thing we have to do in any level of Land It Rocket is to land
the rocket safely. Sounds like something you could do with your eyes
closed right? Right?
Not exactly. Why not? Because Land It Rocket puts obstacles in the way. Things like missile launchers that shoot seeking missiles. And objects that will move into your way. My favorite is the layout of the levels. Land It Rocket has some tough areas to navigate. All of that is the bad news in Land It Rocket. The good news is the controls are easy to pick up and use.
Even though the controls are easy to pick up and use in Land It Rocket, they can be the cause of many crashes. Momentum is very important in Land It Rocket on the Wii U. Go too fast and your craft will explode on a wall, ceiling, floor, or other object. It takes just the right touch of thrust with angle of the flying craft to get to the location of the landing pad.
Some levels in Land It Rocket throw in another speed bump - timing. Oh yes that timing can feel nearly impossible when you fail a certain level over and over again. Know what is worse than failing a level? Not being able to skip it after failing fifty straight times. Land It Rocket taught me one very important lesson - finesse is not in my skill set. I also learned that a video game can create real world anger.
The orange and yellow main land graphics are pretty neat. There are small animations like leaves falling from trees, and branches moving in the wind. At least I think the wind was blowing in Land It Rocket. The wind never interfered with my propulsion thankfully. The rocket ship sounds fit Land It Rocket. The Endless mode in Land It Rocket is fun, but also really hard. In that mode you fly around avoiding missiles as long as you can.
Land It Rocket is a cheap indie game on the Wii U selling for $2.99 (Editor: at the time this review was written). I enjoyed my time playing this home console video game. I like the idea behind Land It Rocket. I wish there had been some power ups like shields to block those missiles in some levels.
