About This Place

First started in late 2007, Kasey's Mobile Game Review (then just a regular feature of Kasey's Korner) started as a simul-post between here and IGN. Later I realized there's no reason to post it twice, when I can use the traffic on my own site. so, here we are, in 2010, and the mobile game industry has grown a bit. What do you think?

KMGR of "Yeti Sports Collection Vol. I"

Yeti Sports Volume 1 is mobile adaptation of some of the Flash-based games you've already played online. They are basically time-based single-button games. They are somewhat charming... for about 15 minutes. Then they become horribly boring. Probably more suitable for kids.

There are four games...

Pingu Throw -- a penguin jumps off the ledge, and the yeti have to "bat" the penguin as far as possible. Highest total yardage wins after 5 attempts.

Orca slap -- an orca will slap a penguin out of the water. Yeti must throw a snowball at the penguin in mid-air to knock the penguin into a "bullseye". The closer to the center the penguin hits, the higher the score. Ten attempts, max total score wins.

Seal Bounce -- yeti will twirl the penguin like a discus thrower, then release it hopefully UPWARD. If the penguin hit a seal (at periodic intervals) the penguin will bounce higher. The objective is to reach max total height after 5 attempts.

Penguin's Revenge -- Yeti will jump off a ledge. Fire the catapult to knock the yeti sideways, hopefully catching a bird. press OK to get the bird to fly higher, and further out to the right, but not TOO high, as vultures will get the yeti and carry him to the LEFT (decrease the distance). If the yeti is on the ground and stopped, he gets to launch himself 2 times, hopefully catching more birds. The objective is to get as far to the right as possible.

You see, these are pretty silly and time-based games. I personally got bored with all of them in about 5 minutes. It's a bit of silly fun, but that's all it is.

Graphics are average bitmaps, sound and music are not that bad, not that good.

Top 5 scores for each game are saved.

Overall, there really isn't much "game" here.

Overall score: 6 out of 10
Pros: simple games, cute for first 10-15 minutes
Cons: way too simple and timing-based for adults, boring after the initial novelty wears off
