Larry the Squirrel’s Play Corner: Acorns and Oil, an interesting combination

Chillingo has been developing apps for iOS from some time and have relatively recently added Android apps into the mix, which is a great thing. Today the squirrel is covering a couple of the more interesting games in the mix.

Feed Me Oil by Chillingo

Name: Feed Me Oil | Developer: Chillingo | Category: Puzzle | Players: 1 | Version: 1.0.2 | Size: 24 MB | Price:  Free / Free (International)

The graphics in this game are great and it reminds me a bit of World of Goo. This is a free game but to play all levels you will need to purchase them. The game is broken into 5 sections (worlds) with 15 levels in each.  The beginning levels are pretty straight forward but the later levels get better.

The oil pipeline is broken and your goal is to help get the oil to the creatures in this world, that apparently eat oil.  To start, you tap the pipe to get the oil flowing. That is the easy part. Then you have to figure out how to get the oil to the creatures.  You are given a number of bars  which you can use to create a path for the oil.  These bars rotate in place and you can change the direction they move.  For those that need it, there are hints.   Overall  a fun puzzle game with unusual creatures!

This Could Hurt by Chillingo

Name: This Could Hurt | Developer: Chillingo | Category: Puzzle | Players: 1 | Version: 1.0.6 | Size: 45 MB | Price:  Free / Free (International)

The Great Oak is the key for the town and its acorns are magical. You are an Oakguard apprentice, taking your final test so you can help protect the mighty tree. You must make your way through the course ahead of you without getting hurt. You will be graded on your precision, speed, score, and power ups. The game comes with four worlds (forest, ruins, snow, and lava) each with 10 levels to complete. This game is free but supported with ads. You can remove ads and get more power ups via in app purchases.

This is a neat game, played from the third person. You character will automatically run the path, you need to touch/hold the screen to stop him (to avoid the pitfalls) and then time it correctly for him to continue. There a number of in game achievements. The graphic are good and it plays well on a small screen. As you progress and earn power ups they can help avoid problems and get through the level faster. If needed you can pause the game if you like. Why don’t you give it a try and see if you can find the magical acorns.
