iPhone App Review: Chop Sushi
There are many match-three games in the App Store, but â€œChop Sushiâ€ stands out in this genre. This game proves to be a tasty treat! The object of the game is to match at least 3 types of sushi. The more sushi you match, the more turns you get.
The unique part about â€œChop Sushiâ€ is the role-playing twist. You venture into the game as the character, Master Chef. His main goal is to serve the freshest sushi and to make everyone happy. Unfortunately, everyone he runs into has a personal demon that needs to be dealt with. As he challenges them to a match-three sushi battle, he also levels up, gains health, adds new weapons, and defeat the customerâ€™s demons.
The game starts out simple with very helpful tutorials. Tapping on a sushi piece or stone will signal the chopsticks to pick it up. Move the piece by swaying the chopsticks up, down, left, or right. Matching pieces will disappear and more will appear in their place. If you match more than four pieces, you will get another turn. You take turns with your opponent and the battle ends when you or your opponent have 0% health. Match wasabi pieces to damage your opponentâ€™s health. When no moves are available on the board, all the stones crack to reveal whatâ€™s underneath them.
There are three modes to choose from â€” Adventure, Quick Battle, and Challenges. In Challenges, you have to match items in a specific number of moves. In Quick Battle, you can select which land and demon to battle with. But the game is mostly centered around the Adventure mode, where Master Chef can wander around, talk to people, and swim to new lands.
As the game progress, you start to earn new recipes that can help you with your battles. New weapons and healing recipes will have you thinking about your next move as well as your opponentâ€™s. This adds another level of gameplay to keep the game fun and challenging.
Sometimes selecting a sushi piece to move is difficult. The pieces are small, so youâ€™ll find yourself picking up the wrong piece. However, you are not penalized and there is no time limit in the game. This is nice because you never feel rushed.
If you would like to try out this game, download â€œChop Sushi Liteâ€ (iTunes Link) for free and give it a test drive. Youâ€™ll be able to play one level and battle three different opponents. The full version is only $2.99 and is worth every penny!
