Tasty Planet Reviewed

Macworld's Game Room recently reviewed Tasty Planet, a casual action title from PlayFirst. The game puts players in the role of a grey glob of experimental bathroom cleaner that rolls over items and slowly increases its size until capable of devouring worlds. The Game Room gave Tasty Planet a score of 4 out of 5.

From the review:

You start out on the microscopic level, eating up bits of dirt and other objects that are small enough for you to eat. With each progressive level—60 in all—you find yourself getting larger and larger, eating unicellular organisms like paramecia, then eating small insects, working your way up to the detritus that rests upon a picnic table, eventually making your way to rolling down the street, eating cars and everything else that get in your way.

You have to be careful to not let your eyes get bigger than your stomach, however—larger objects that you can’t immediately digest will harm you, so you need to keep your distance from many edible things and creatures until your diameter has increased a bit.

The game features nine different locations to explore, starting out in the laboratory, getting flushed out into the ocean, then ending up in a park, roaming around a city, up into the sky, then in orbit around the Earth and finally out amongst the stars.
