Whack Or Love app review: a whack a mole style game with a twist



Whack Or Love by Jia Shen Lim brings a traditional carnival game to your iOS device, but there are no moles to whack in this one. Instead of tacking a picture of someone that’s got under your skin to your dartboard, now you can throw their picture into the Whack Or Love game and whack away to your hearts content. But, what’s a game without a little twist? You’ll also have to include pictures of those that you love and you never know which one’s going to pop up at any given time so you’ll have to whack with caution. This makes for a fun little game that’s a good time waster. This is a free app and it’s compatible with the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.

Whack Or Love


Whack Away at Your Enemies and Give a Little Love to Your Friends

Carnival games are all about a quick burst of fun and then moving on to the next one and Whack Or Love is no different. In this game you have to keep your wits about you as the action comes fast and furious. With an uplifting soundtrack and fun, cute graphics this is a game that you can enjoy whenever you have a few extra minutes to kill. You don’t have to worry about learning a complicated set of rules – it plays just like the games you’ll find in any carnival, fair, or theme park.

You will have to put up with some ads in this one though and they’re not some simple little unobtrusive banner ads – at the conclusion of every game you’ll be forced to watch a full paged video ad that you can’t bypass. On the plus side there is a great little set of instructions in this game which clearly explains the different game options. This app will require at least 19.7 MB of available space on your iOS device. 

How to Play

The first thing you have to do when you open the app is decide if you want to play Whack or Love. If you choose whack every character you whack over the head will develop bruises as you go. If on the other hand you choose love every time you tap a character a little heart appears above their head – it’s an interesting take on a fairly simple game. The actual game is played just like any game in this genre, as the characters pop up out of their holes you have to whack them before they return back down to their holes. There are also some bonus features that will slow game play down or speed it up if you whack on them to make it interesting.

A cool little extra in this game is the ability to add your own pictures and use them as the characters in the game, so if you’ve really got a grudge against someone now’s your time to take out your frustrations. To add a picture you simply enter the settings menu from the main screen and tap on mole. You’ll notice a profile picture with a question mark – if you tap on this option you can add a picture from your gallery. It really makes the game a lot more personal.
