App Store games are becoming more and more complicated all the time. That’s fine if you have a lot of time to learn the ins and outs of the game, but sometimes we’re just looking for a quick bit of fun. CoogyLoop is a crazily addictive little game that can help you waste a little time on a long commute. You’ll have it figured out in seconds, but you’ll have trouble putting it down! This is a free app, and it’s compatible with the iPhone, iPad, and the iPod touch.
There a lot of games in the App Store, some are easy to learn and some require a couple of hours to truly get into the groove of the gameplay. CoogyLoop is definitely in the simple easy, but just because it isn’t complicated that doesn’t mean it’s not challenging. This is a great little game for all ages. Mom and Dad will love it, and so will the kids. Think about some of the games you loved growing up. There’s nothing complicated about playing Twister or Hungry Hippo, but they sure are a lot of fun. I’d definitely put CoogyLoop in this category.
What I really liked about this game was how it got progressively more difficult as the game went on. When you first begin play it doesn’t seem difficult at all, but the more points you gather the harder it gets. Believe me, it gets challenging in a hurry. At 8 MB this app won’t take up a lot of space on your iOS device.
How to Play
When you open CoogyLoop you’ll be given a brief explanation of how the game works. In a nutshell, you have to tap in the colored area of the screen when the balls inside it. That’s it. All you have to do to start playing is tap on the play button. The game doesn’t require a lot of instruction. As the ball spins around in a continuous circle it will pass through a colored tube during the cycle: it sounds simple, but each time you’re successful the ball speeds up and the tube gets smaller. You have to be really sharp to do well. Your reflexes will be tested!
The only real problem I had with the app was the use of ads. There are banner ads along the bottom of the screen which is a little annoying but they’re not too bad. Where it gets annoying is after you’ve completed a couple of games. At this point you’ll be bombarded with a full-page ad that won’t let you continue until you’ve viewed the ad for five seconds. If you attempt to close it you’ll be transferred to the App Store. It’s definitely a nuisance, but it didn’t deter me from coming back to this little addictive time waster.
If you’re looking for a great little time waster on your commute home from work CoogyLoop definitely qualifies. It’s fun, and it will keep you coming back for more. The ads are a little bit of nuisance, but they won’t keep you away from this one.
