This game is bigger, better and a bit of a disappointment compared to the original Flick Home Run iPhone game. The gameplay is classic “time waster” flick home run action. There are a variety of ingenious ball personalities that are thrown to you that you must hit correctly to get a homerun. The redhot baseball is a fastball (of course), sinker is a scuba ball (you get the point), great ideas and the game is loads of fun. Unfortunately, I have not been able to unlock any of the other cool looking game modes after plunking down $2.99 and spending around another $7.99 to level up my power, contact and eye. A check of some other reviews on iTunes shows that apparently others are equally disappointed and have even estimated it would cost around $300 to fully level up your batter in all areas. This seems like an unfair consumer revenue model — let’s just say it’s gouging.
I started to get bored with the game because if you only rack up around 30,000 points you will not get anywhere. Just before cutting the video app review I had a game where I rocked it up to 85,000 and I increased by 3 steps from 30,000 points to 85,000. The moral of the story: persistence or fork out more cash, you will have to decide. My bet is people will get burned out of the ridiculous pricing strategy and either this game will go free, the will be price lowered, or difficulty changed to make the game more fun.
Flick Home Run! HD is a very fun arcade home run game, but needs some adjustments to be a top game.
