AWESOME Land (by FreakZone) is a retro-looking platformer featuring a man’s man named Manly, who is stomping his way through the desert on a hunt to recover his prized motorcycle from a band of aliens in 20 large levels of twisted gameplay. Having grown up playing Donkey Kong (yes, I am that old), I am happy to see platforming games like AWESOME Land show up on the iPhone and iPad; I suppose it is because games like this bring back memories of great games from a simpler time. Cool thing about this platform game is that it features a funny story, some incredible photorealistic pixel graphics, as the developer puts it, and a seriously rocking sound track that is sure to have people on YouTube asking me, “Where can I get this music” or “What is the name of that song.” The gameplay is super smooth while jumping and moving from left to right, there are a load of unique alien enemies keeping you from your motorcycle (you are pursuing), and the level gameplay is large (chopped up in stages).
As you play through a level, you have to complete a certain number of stages before taking on a boss to advance to the next level. The alien boss I came across was large, feisty, but enough jumps on his back (as this is your only defense) and you get your bike back for a brief span while riding to the next level to start the process over again. There are only 2 power-ups in the game: meat, which forgives an enemy touch (1x) and produces quite a nice burp sound effect (if I do say so myself), and the extra life power-up. All power-ups can be found by breaking the beige-looking brick blocks by jumping up and down on them with your gnarly biker boots. AWESOME Land is sure to be a huge success because it has the right recipe of fun, smooth gameplay, awesome music and an entertaining storyline — not to mention killer graphics.
