Review SCOUTS!

Vlad Popa
7.8Good
Fast paced and entertaining gameplay, nice soundtrack and sound effects
Somewhat unresponsive controls
A scout is always prepared. This is also the case for the small scout troupe you control in Scouts, an infinite side scroller about a group of three scouts marching through the forest. With the player’s help they will truly be prepared for any obstacle, be it fallen logs, pitfalls, bear traps, and even the bears themselves.
As the adventurous group makes its way through the forest players can use up and down swipes to avoid obstacles. The game starts off at a relatively slow pace but builds up as players advance and collect wood, which can be used as currency to purchase power-ups. Over the course of the game players are able to build camps at certain intervals where they may rest to regain health.
Each scout you control has his or her own special use. With this in mind, the strong scout can use his axe to break logs in two, the resourceful girl scout can use her rope to create a bridge and cross ravines, and the tricky scout can use his slingshot to disarm bear traps. In order to make use of these mechanics the player must swipe left and right to decide who takes the lead of the troupe. The special ability can be automatically triggered when the scout-obstacle combination is met along the way or manually using the appropriate button.
Overall Scouts for Android is an entertaining and well-built game. It takes a bit of getting used to using side swipes to change to the exact scout needed for each incoming obstacle, and when the game picks up the pace it leaves little room for errors. Its main fault though, is the oddness of the main character’s movements. Some jumps are simply not long enough to bound over obstacles, while some are so long that they land too close to the next obstacle. Combined with the somewhat unresponsive controls this is somewhat of an issue for players.
