The Nardio Review
Is it worth your time?
What should I play it on?
Cute Kill is an universal app for iOS 4.0 or later.
What did you think without spoiling it?
Cute Kill is a running game that has you running from zombies in a baby brother, older sister pair. The sister runs and stabs, and baby bro shoots. It’s an awesome premise that has tons of potential. Unfortunately it’s bogged down by a pay wall system that will suck all the fun out of this jog. Sure Cute Kill is free, but so many other free games on the app store manage to give you a full game without bad pay walls. There are three modes to play, but none are worth your time since the pay wall will destroy your ability to progress in two of them. The third seems like filler.
Sadly, it’s a Freemium game that puts the cash grab ahead of the fun.
How it plays and why it fails:
Ughhhhh another good concept ruined by bad Freemium. I wanted to like this game, I really did. I really did like the comic panels telling the story. The in-game art is fun and the music is engaging. Unfortunately, you will often find yourself woefully under powered. Weapon upgrades are gated in such a way that you will always be under powered. Then when you max out a weapon’s potential you still find yourself under powered. The best way to enjoy the game is to spend real world money. Unfortunately, there is no real way of knowing if the gem-only guns are worth it.
Later on you will have enemies that shoot at you, or charge at you. Both make progressing absolute hell. Your characters need to dodge obstacles and set off traps to advance while the enemies just line up where you need to go and destroy you. You can never kill them fast enough and passing stages becomes more about luck and buying special onetime use items than any real skill. Sure it’s great to have an in-game money sink for all the useless currency once you max your guns out. But these items are just over priced.
