Review iTrousers

Brandon Girod
8.7Excellent
Excellent art style, good controls, programmable movement
Lack of extra content, no cosmetic items
iTrousers for Android is very much a rhythm game that takes me back to the good ol’days of QWOP. Don’t know what QWOP is? It’s another rhythm game where you control the four major appendages of a runner as they, well, run.
Now the funny thing about this game is the art style. I mean, there is obviously going to be trousers in the game, that’s just a given. But there also appears to be a glasses-wielding whale that seems to be in control of the trousers. Is the whale actually wearing the trousers or are the trousers a robotic contraption the whale cooked up in order to get around on land. Does it even matter?
I’m more inclined to think the latter because the game actually gives you a control panel where you can program precisely how the trousers walk. Walking is a simple as tapping on the screen. The touch input is sensitive to how long you press and this is a key to staying upright. The controls aren’t as complex as QWOP’s, but I think that actually makes the game a bit more enjoyable.
The programming aspect was simply too much for me, though. Pulling it up is overwhelming and there isn’t a good way to accurately set your parameters since everything is based on sliders. And, to be honest, I didn’t do too bad with the default controls.
The only area iTrousers really fails the player on is the lack of content. As great as the game looks, I’d love to see there be more cosmetic items that are unlockable in the game. Sure, if you get into the programming aspect of the game there is hours of “fun” to be had there, but for more casual players the game lacks that driving force to keep them interested.

7.4Good
Decent animation, modern graphics, the game is addictive, simple controls
In-app purchases, pop-up ads
iTrousers for Android is a robotic trouser simulator. You tweak the control parameters for each leg with some joystick sliders to try and get a combination you can actually walk with. Most times you'll either fall flat on your back, bend over at the knees, or fall on your face.
The four control parameters are Hip, Knee, Foot and Force; and they really do alter the amount each of these elements moves. It's pretty hard to finely adjust the controls though; and even if you could it would be pretty difficult to come up with a stable solution. Luckily, there are three presets, and one of them actually works! Using this you can walk, by getting the trousers tipped forward and pushing against the ground with alternate legs (you do this by tapping). It's kinda awkward; a little bit like the way a toddler runs around. And just like a toddler; it's easy to lose balance and fall over. The objective is to walk as far as you can before that happens.
Fans of Wallace and Gromit and The Wrong Trousers will obviously appreciate where the idea of these robot trousers comes from. With a name like iTrousers though; an Apple lawsuit is sure to follow when the tech giant decides they want to develop their own robototic trouser technology. There's also a whale balanced on top of the iTrousers... which makes no sense at all, but hey there you go!
