The development studio ZeptoLab you may still know from the classic Cut the Ropewho definitely has a place in the "Pick of the Week" hit list earned. However, this is about the game "Evo Pop“Go that I looked at on the iPad.
The principle of the game is easy and quick to explain: Your Evo Pop is a goo cube in a landscape in which two other opponents fight with you for supremacy. You can either win by devouring all opponents or by being the first to cross the magical limit of 300 Evos.
Motto of the game: Eat. To grow. Develop!
If no one manages this within 3 minutes, the Sudden Death mode starts, in which water rises from below and takes out all Evos one by one. If your own Evos are placed higher than the others, you can also win in this way.
My daughter and I find the game downright relaxing because you don't have to do a lot of things at the same time. You can think of a tactic and either make your Evo Pops extra large so that they can eat the others, or you make a particularly large number of goo cubes so that you quickly pass the 300 Evo mark. All in all, it's pretty quiet while I'm at Brawl Stars (to the delight of my children) I am on the verge of a heart attack every now and then.
The nice thing about Evo Pop is that the Evo Pops are slowly multiplying. That means, you watch them at work and give them orders that you draw on them in the form of small boxes. So you can instruct certain Evo Pops to jump further or multiply while sharing, etc. You probably have to try Evo Pop to understand the charm of the game.
The game itself is free to download, but - as in many other games - you can buy so-called in-game currency to improve your Evo Pops. In some games you cannot play at all without spending money because you are doomed to always lose.
Fortunately, this is not a requirement with Evo Pop. The game is very fair even without throwing in real money and the opponents - they often seem like robots to me, although they could be other people from all over the world - are rarely so good that you can't get them with your untuned Schlappi-Evo -Pop would create.
If that sounds exciting to you so far, check out the game. You find it here in the App Store.
