No in-app purchases, quality animation, every level brings something new
Flooded with Ads, precise taps are hard to achieve on small screens
Click Kill Adventure is a different kind of point and click adventure game than what we are used to. It is frustratingly difficult and manages to create awesome challenges for players to overcome.
The game presents the user with increasingly difficult situations that the user must maneuver. Some are slower paced and allow the user time to think, others rely on fast paced reactions. Even so, both types of levels rely on a trial and error strategy to eventually surpass it. In order to complete each level, players must tap on the correct object or location on the screen in order to trigger the correct action. Charging mindlessly rarely works in this game, and instead players must discover other ways to accomplish their objectives. The only downside to this is that there is only one path to your objective, the one set and hidden by the designers, which may be a bit frustrating due to the fact it may be rather difficult to see levels exactly as a certain person planned it.
The graphics are based around stick figures and simplistic environments. This allows more room for the animations to truly shine. They are fluid and often quite amazing in how fluid they are.
Overall Click Kill Adventure could have been an amazing game; however it is plagued by most issues that so often haunt games on smart devices. Ads are quite intrusive and intervene way too often, not allowing the user to immerse in the game. Another issue that affects the game is the need for extremely precise taps. This makes it extremely difficult for the user to progress as it is extremely hard to hit that sweet spot, especially so on small screens.
