Crossy Road – Endless Arcade Hopper By HIPSTER WHALE have currently ranked ninth in the App Store. It is both fun and addictive that skillfully combines the gameplay of “Frogger” with a beautiful cubic artstyle which makes the game come to life in a charming way. It is an endless hopping game where you see how long you can survive.
Main gameplay involves getting as far as possible across the roads, rivers, grass and train, tracks without losing. Swiping the screen in the corresponding direction will move the character – mascot (player plays as a mascot) or tapping to go forward. It makes the game easy to play with one hand, which is one of the reasons “Flappy Bird” took off.
You can see everything in 3D rather than 2D that allows the game’s graphics to truly shine, and the shadows make the environments pop with detail.
One of the main concepts of the game revolves collecting enough coins to purchase a gift for yourself. To obtain these coins the player must simply move the mascot to the coins location.
Along the way there will be many obstacles, such as rivers, trees, boulders, cars, and trains. To get past these obstacles the player must go past them at the appropriate moment to ensure survival or to use other objects to get across rivers such as logs and lily pads. A point will be accounted for every square unit moved forward. How more points will be received depends on how more units that are moved,. Along the way there will be yellow coins with red “C’s” engraved on the covers representing coins.
The sole uses of coins (which are an in-game currency) are of buying random mascots with the slot machine, where every 100 coins can be used at the slot machine.
Each gift contains a new playable character for the game, each with their own animation
An eagle will come fly up which will snatch the mascot provided they stay in the same place too long or move too far back, resulting in a game over
“Crossy Road” is full of refreshingly fun gameplay, a gorgeous artstyle, and a compelling rewards system that keeps you coming back for more.
