Silly Sausage in Meat Land - App Review

Silly Sausage in Meat Land app for Apple iOS and Android is a goofball game about a really looooong and stretchy wiener dog on a mission. Collect all the gems while avoiding all the jaggies that make you go ouch. This one makes absolutely no sense, but then, most really good games never do. Retro gaming fans are sure to find this entertaining and addictive. (continued)

 Official App Store Links: Apple iOS | Android

Silly Sausage in Meat Land app displays in landscape mode to reveal a side scrolling environment of the endless variety. Your mission, is to take this stretchy little canine on a walk, of sorts, collecting all the green shiny gemstones. Why? Who knows? Maybe this little mutt trades them in for doggy treats; a puppy's gotta eat. Whatever the case, just swipe the direction you want this little thing to go, and his torso gets longer and looooonger until you tap the screen, then his hind paws release and catch up to the rest of his body. To change directions mid-stretch, just swipe in any direction and the doggy's head will follow, stretching that long body more and more.

You can actually bend and wind this doggy pretty far without ever making him go pop, however, there's jaggies out to get you, and if they touch any part of the dog before he retracts to his normal shape, it's game over. Good news is, there's several dog houses to seek refuge in along the way, which double as checkpoints where you can restart the game if you mess up.  Checkpoints will cost you some of your recently collected gemstones, or you can watch a video instead and save those valuable gemstones to purchase stock in the Milk-Bone corporation.

The controls use the aforementioned screen swipes to make this mutt go, and all was copacetic. The graphics stick close to their retro roots, presenting neo-pixel graphics that go for a nice blend of old school visuals while retaining some modern details. The animation is a tad crude by design and doesn't have much excitement to render, however, it's kinda fun to see just how long and windy you can contort this poor little twisty dog. The sounds feature retro MIDI style music that's marginally entertaining, until it isn't, at which point, the mute button is your friend.

Silly Sausage in Meat Land app for Apple iOS and Android isn't going to entertain for hours on end, however, as an occasional time killer, it's good clean fun. There's lots of mazes to conquer here, so if you get hooked, there's plenty to keep you busy. And maybe when you’re done, send that poor mutt to the chiropractor for a much needed adjustment.
