Wake Woody is a very funny arcade game for Windows Phone which has gained much popularity and attracted a lot of positive feedback from users waiting forward to new levels. The game is made in the style of a third-person runner with a side view, but there's nobody running here. You will find a funny puppy named Woody who loves to ride a wakeboard more than anything. For him, even wooden piers and other structures are not barriers.
Game featuresThe main character does not put off his wakeboard and does not let go of the rope from his paws until he experiences a serious obstacle that he cannot get around. However, if he has a life (initially, three lives) in reserve, even the situation described above will not stop him. Wake Woody is different from the majority of runners in the fact that it is not infinite and is divided into a few dozens of levels which in turn are spread across multiple locations. The game starts always similarly and fairly easy, in order not to make you catatonic immediately about how quickly the events can develop.
At first, you allow Woody to ride the surface of the water and collect first gold coins, and then things begin to happen that provide the main character with a great pleasure, and you with problems. It is unknown how the dog overcomes all obstacles on a water scooter, but if you lack reaction to the situation, Woody will get in a very serious trouble.
Obstacles and controllingOne of the first obstacles will be sandy islets that you have to jump over. A little later, in the middle of the water palms will start to appear, and after some time the main character will face wooden structures which may be of the height of several floors. And, if you don't have time to react to the emergence of such obstacles, he will face them in the truest sense of the word.
Controlling in the game is carried out only by using a touch screen and comes down to the fact that you have to make the main character jump over everything that poses a danger to him. The jumps can be single or double. The main thing is to use them in a timely manner and not to mess with conquest of height in vain, because to re-activate a double jump, Woody must touch a surface at least for a fraction of a second.
ResumeThe graphics in the game are made in a cartoon style, and their quality is at a high level. The soundtrack consists of rock music which, actually, is not bad, but after a while it grows frankly annoying. The great thing is that you can download the Wake Woody game absolutely for free and play it through completely. And all this is without any advertisements.
