Godzilla - Smash3 - App Review

Godzilla - Smash3 for Android, iPhone and iPad is an immersive match 3 combat game, starring none other than Godzilla. This one requires strategy and the ability to combat incontinence.

Godzilla - Smash3 presents in portrait mode to deliver a tried and true match 3 environment on the lower 2 thirds of the screen, populated with various power ups, weaponry and explosives. The top portion of the screen is where all the real fun stuff happens, featuring graphics of Godzilla, pitted against an array of military might. Your mission, is to make matches of 3 or more, which triggers different attack modes that play out between Godzilla and the military above. Godzilla starts out in the ocean, battling the Navy and Coast Guard en route to land. Swat aircraft out of the sky to splash and stomp your way to land; once in the city, Godzilla battles tanks, squashes cars and thrashes skyscrapers into smithereens. There’s lots to look at and enjoy here, though I found it confusing as to who I should be rooting for. You’re playing as the military might against Godzilla, but he’s so cool, it’s hard not to root for him too.

The controls use screen swipes and slides to bring on the thunder, and all functioned as expected. The graphics are dramatic, with silhouetted views of Godzilla that are sure to send chills down your spine. The animation has some satisfying effects to be rendered, both on the animations above, and on the match 3 game board too. The sounds added appropriate levels of angst and anxiety to the play.

Godzilla - Smash3 plays quite nicely and I found myself completely engaged and enveloped.  This one is fun, just be sure to play it close to a bathroom, just in case.
