Cruelty against ants, or a new take on the rhythm-action genre?
To those going through this bookazine with a fine-tooth comb, you will have read elsewhere how important it is to take the touch rhythm-action mechanic and find a way to spice it up a bit. If you’re the people working at rise uP! Labs, this comes in the form of ants. As the fiends try and advance upon your pie placed at the bottom of the screen, you have to crush the minions into the ground in time with a selected song.
Although this isn’t instantly apparent — at first it will seem like you’re just crushing ants for the sake of it— those who manage to start eliminating ants in the order they cross the ‘tap fine’ will notice the rhythm they’re providing. It can be a little fiddly at times due to the amount of bugs that attack you at once, but all-in-ail this is a unique app that does enough to feel different even if it is a little crazy.
