Review Ice Age Adventures
An amazing Ice Age themed adventure
Author: Vlad Popa
Date: 13 Aug 2014, tested on Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo
Plenty of activities to keep players interested, lovable and amusing characters, nice graphics, amusing dialogue
Some tasks have a long waiting time, endgame content is rather expensive
Ice Age Adventures for Android is a truly wonderful game. Help Sid, Manny and Diego rescue their friends and overcome all challenges. Even that silly, yet lovable squirrel, Scrat makes an appearance as he continues to chase his acorn. Players also get the chance to help our heroes defeat the dreaded Captain Gutt.
Exploring islands has never been this amusing. Sid’s comments make everything even more amusing. From frozen islands to tropical environments, watching him unleash his famous “Sloth Fu” on unsuspecting trees is a continuous source of comic relief. In order to save your animal friends the main characters need help clearing obstacles; simply double tap to instantly clear it, or tap the desired obstacle once and watch as everyone’s favorite sloth, mammoth and saber go in and take care of business. Once you reach a member of your herd, the appropriate mini-game needs to be completed in order to rescue him or her.
As players get close to the endgame they will find that almost everything will take quite some time to complete (of course you can always apply an instant finish, provided you have the required currency). This does not take away the overall fun though, as the game offers plenty of content to keep you interested. From events to exploration and mini-games, this game is designed to be the way you like, perhaps you want to visit your village occasionally and rescue some members, or maybe you prefer to complete quests and will find yourself hooked on the game instantly.
Overall Ice Age Adventures is an immensely entertaining game, with fun mini-games, a great soundtrack and amusing dialogue. Sid would say: “Set sail for adventure”; get ready to explore islands, collect items, battle bosses and have a great time doing it. The only downside is that if you do not wish to resort to the in-app purchases, you will have to hoard acorns like a true prehistoric squirrel. Come to think of it, this game is probably why Scrat has been chasing that acorn with such fervor, he wants to apply an instant finish or purchase an animal.
