Puffle Launch

Puffle Launch is the latest edition to the Club Penguin franchise on the iOs (iPhone/iPad) which features a variety of colourful Club Penguin environments and themes as you control a Puffle via the tap screen in order to collect the coins as your Puffle gets launched through a variety of moving canons.

If the game does sound a little familiar that because it has been taken from the Club Penguin universe and has successfully been <wait for it> re-launched on the iOS with its innovative touch screen interface.

Gameplay

In terms of gameplay, it's quite simplistic on the iPhone which is basic a timing game as you attempt to launch the Puffle in unison with other canons to continue launching it to other areas of the screen and more importantly, collect the coins. It doesn't help that some canons move. If you fail, you basically need to start the level again which can sometimes be frustrating, especially on the harder levels which require perfect timing.

As you go through the levels, you will also encounter other obstacles that must be taken into consideration such as fans and even boss battles. Boss battles are a little tricky but most people should have no problem in mastering this title as it has been designed for kids. Speaking of kids, they can use all the coins collected in Puffle Launch to be transferred to Club Penguin online.

Graphics

Graphically, Puffle Launch is a good looking game with its cartoon inspired environment and simplistic yet stylised backgrounds. I really enjoyed the Puffle movie at the start and as you progress through the game, the backgrounds do eventually change. It's fun!

Music

Musically, the game is a little repetitive with its action orientated soundtrack that after 5 minutes of play, I needed to turn it off. The sound effects are nothing special and feature stock standard arcade noises.

Final Level

In the end, Puffle Launch may not be the most original iOS game available and sticks to a tried and tested formula. It's definitely one for the kids or if its on sale, go grab it as it's addictive and fast-paced!
