Summary : An addictive affair only dampened by ads
We have all played the truly addictive Flappy Bird now and have made some high scores in the game. But we needed something more, something we could pick up and just play. Developer Ketchapp decided to make a dozen or so games including Zig Zag which follow the same simplistic design and minimalist controls.
There is something amazing about playing a game which simply makes you crave for more. Flappy Bird didn’t claim fame by bringing in great graphics or new gameplay, it became famous because we just couldn’t stop playing it. Zig Zag captures the same excitement and challenge and does have some decent looking graphics to boot.
Zig Zag is a simply game in which you have to make a high score simply by taping on the screen. The ball automatically moves ahead and you can change its direction by light taps. This is all there is to the game when it comes to controls. The game makes itself highly approachable by keeping the controls simple and easy to grasp.
The graphics are minimalist and suit the game well. Comparisons to other games can be made here easily however I personally think if it works, it is a homage. The game is very light when it comes to stressing your Android phone or tablet. It will run smoothly on almost any Android device and you will experience no performance hitches.
The only downside are the intrusive ads the game displays almost every run. As the game is challenging and a run usually ends in seconds, the ads can be a real annoyance. That’s not all though, the app also has some weird main menu design, especially on phablets. You have to touch the top of the screen to start a new round which inconveniently stresses the thumb. I have currently only scored just over a 100 points but I will surely be playing the game for a while. It nudges at my ego and makes me play again and again. I usually play Zig Zag on my way to office or school in the evening. You will love the way the game makes itself a great ride.
