Achtung! is a very addictive arcade game for Windows Phone, which can be a great time-killer both for adults and for children. The game resembles a once popular "snake", but it has a lot of brand new features, and you will surely enjoy them. The game is designed in the drawing style, and a board with crayons reminds of school times.
Gameplay featuresIn contrast with the previously mentioned "snake", here you need to draw lines with crayons, only they have to be dotted and not solid. Your snake is not the only one - there will be a lot of other snakes controlled by a computer. However, the game has a Multiplayer mode, which will help pass a little time both you and your friend, but you will have to play on the same smartphone. The goal of the game is to survive the longest. Once your snake runs into an obstacle, the game is over for you, and the remaining contestants continue to fight for the medal place.
The reward is a single point for everyone whom you have outlasted. The game consists of several rounds and ends as soon as one player has gained twenty points. Having played a few times you can develop a strategy with which your opponents will have no chance of winning. The only significant difficulty lies in the fact that the snake grows independently and at a fairly high speed. You are only given the opportunity to change the direction of its growth, and this has to be done so that it doesn't run into anything.
However, you can create obstacles for the snakes of rivals, leaving a trace of your crayon and preventing the enemy from penetrating the other half of the playing field. If you watched the sci-fi movie "Tron: Legacy", you probably remember how bike trail left by a person is an impenetrable obstacle for the pursuer. So it is here, but as it was noted at the beginning of the review, the lines are dotted, and if you are good you will be able to lead your snake through a gap of another snake or through your own tail.
ResumeControlling in Achtung!A player operates the game by using a touch screen. Just touch the left or right side of the screen, and the snake will turn to this side. Though you should take into account the minimum diameter of a turn and realize that you cannot turn the snake in narrow places. If you play with a friend, right and left sides of the screen will be divided into two equal parts. The graphics in the game are pretty good and hardly may cause you discontent. Sound is very modest but sufficient - it fits perfectly into the gameplay.
