Funny sounds, one-finger controls
Bores you really quickly, monotonous game play, graphics could have been better
Cheating Tom for Android is about a bratty little kid who doesn't want to study, so he cheats off other kid's test papers. Make it all the way to College and graduate without learning a thing. Fun...?
Cheating Tom is a silly little mindless game. It's about as stupid as any kid would be if they actually cheated their entire academic career away. The game takes place in a classroom on test day. All the kids are seated at their desks, taking a test. A teacher stands at the front of the class, keeping an eye on the kids. But when she's not looking, you help little Tom sneak over to the other kid's desks and cheat off their paper. Cheat enough to get a passing grade and win the round. Get caught by the teacher, and you lose.
The game is exceedingly easy. It requires virtually no skill and only a marginal amount of strategy. The more I played it, the more I wanted to reach into that screen and knock the living daylights outta that bratty little kid. I hate him and kids like him with a passion. Just sayin'.
The graphics are ok, but nothing special. The controls are simple, but then, this game is simple minded so it's fitting. The play is redundant and monotonous and the only thing that held my interest, were thoughts of little Tom's life turning into a train wreck that would one day unfold on an episode of Cops.
Cheating Tom had virtually no charm or intrigue. I suggest the sequel be a game where all the other kids get to beat the crap out of Tom for the cheating bully that he is. Now that's a game I might be interested in playing.
