App Review: Sparta by Pocket Monkey Games
Sparta by Pocket Monkey Games is a cool side scrolling action game. The object of the game is to try to kill as many enemies as you can before you run out of lives. The amount of life you have left is displayed in the top left corner. The longer the sword is, the more life you have left. You have 3 lives. For every 20 enemies you kill, you will advance a level. With each level, the enemies become harder to kill. You also get armor upgrades with each level advancement. You start out with bronze armor, then you get silver, and then gold.
There are 3 different attack/defense buttons; sword, kick, and block. The sword will slash the enemies, which will kill them. Kick will stun them for a short amount of time making it easier to kill them. The block will protect you from oncoming enemies. You can control these 3 things using the buttons in the bottom right corner. You can control which way your Spartan goes using the left and right arrows in the bottom left corner of the screen.
Sparta is a cool game that takes a lot of strategy and quick thinking. The game has good graphics and a cool variety of enemies. The game is great, but it could be even better if the background of each level was different. The game is still great and well worth the money.
Sparta is available in the iTunes App Store for $0.99.
Note: This game is rated 9+ for cartoon violence.
