Crossy Road - Endless Arcade Hopper for iPhone

Editors' Review

by   / February 06, 2015

In Crossy Road you must steer your character through the maze of streets while trying to grab items and avoid all the traffic that is filling the roads.

Pros

Charming design: Crossy Road looks quaint and inviting. The design is reminiscent of Minecraft and the many blocky and pixelated looking games that have come since. The colors are bright, and the characters are cute.

Cons

No explanation: There is no explanation when you first open the app that tells you how to play, what your goals are, or any other prerequisite info.

Confusing bonuses: The bonus screens are also confusing. In one instance, we were presented with something that looked like a gumball machine with no instructions on how to use it. After clicking randomly, eventually a cow came out, which we could then play as. However, we couldn't see any intuitive means to switch back to the chicken and couldn't figure out the purpose of the bonus.

Sharing feature: You can share a snapshot of the animal that you're using over social media. This seems like a useless feature that is added only for app penetration into your social circles.

Bottom Line

Crossy Road looks great, but it suffers from a lack of clarity in the gameplay. The confusing bonuses and lack of help or explanation make it a difficult game to pick up.
