Don’t Don’t Don’t by Dennis Cessan – Android App Featured
We are not saying that one kind is better than the other. Far from it. The simple, straightforward games are just as much fun as the complicated ones and require just as much thought and practice. Of course, a simple arcade game must be good in order to be enjoyable. No surprises there …
So, let’s take a look at a good simple game, shall we? In fact, a game that its iOS version was declared the best new game in the US app store in March. The game is called Don’t Don’t Don’t and despite its name we think its a good one.
The premise of the game is deceptively simple. We are given a bird and a rotating circle with two openings and our task is simple, just fly the bird up into the rotating circle and then fly it out the circle, again using the moving openings in the circle.
Sounds simple, doesn’t it? But it’s harder than it looks and it keeps getting harder. Controlling the bird is not that simple and requires good hand to eye coordination. Flying it through the gaps in the circle is also a challenge, and the player must think ahead and plan the bird’s trajectory carefully or he or she will end up with one dead turkey on their hands.
We believe that Don’t Don’t Don’t has everything a good arcade game needs. A challenge, an ever evolving playing characters (as more types of birds become available as you reach more levels), a leaderboard and simple gameplay that becomes real difficult in a short time.
In other words, this game is ideal for those idle moments we have, or just to lay back, put our fingers and mind in gear and plunge right into those circles, hopefully to come out whole on the other side.
