Dodge That Anvil! Reviewed

MacNN has posted a new review of Rabidlab's Dodge That Anvil!, an isometric platform game that puts players in the role of a brave rabbit seeking to uncover the perilous mystery of a storm of anvils falling from the sky. MacNN gave the game a score of 4 out of 5 stars.

From the review:

The impressive features include the most comprehensive game options I have ever seen in a simple point and click game. The Dodge That Anvil! options should satisfy most people's preferences. For example, I prefer mouse-controlled games, and in the Input Options I can choose to use the keyboard, mouse or joystick. The Game Options include four levels of play from very easy to expert. In addition, there is a training option, pop-up help, and prompts. Video Options let you choose full screen or window mode, the resolution of your screen, the system cursor, or the carrot, and whether to use OpenGL or the software to render the graphics. Advanced video options include whether a shadow or silhouette draws for the player and objects. That's a lot of user-selectable options!

I'm not a fan of violence and it took a few tries to accept anvils squashing my Harvester, but as blood and guts are thankfully omitted, I decided, this game isn't overly violent. The dangerous objects are just so odd, that it reduces the cruel factor. I don't recommend the game for under eight years old though, as by that age, kids can appreciate that the odd missiles are silly. Kids under 8 may be upset that the rabbit is bonked frequently.
