Archibald’s Adventures Review
Posted by iphonetech78 on February 21, 2009
We are fortunate to obtain a copy of Archibald’s Adventures from “Rake in Grass” to do this review. Thanks!
This game is a full-featured platform game that has 114 levels. The free lite version only has 32 levels. The story is about a school boy Archie being adventureous and went skateboarding to a scientist mansion. However, his experiments went havoc and all the monsters in the experiment escape and Archie must find the central computer to restore peace and order in the mansion.
The game options are very much the standard, giving users the choice to adjust the music and sound levels and the orientation of the game.
There are total of 7 stages in the game. Each stage comprises of 16 levels. See below screenshots for clarifications. I am showing up to the 4th stage to make this review show nicely on 1 page.
Here are some in-game screenshots:
You will notice from the above screenshots that alot of hints are given to solve each level. These hints will tell you which lever to press and which obstacle to avoid to prevent Archie from getting killed. So I will feel the difficulty level of this game is moderate, which is playable for the average platform gamer. Some of the levels even denote which object you need to activate first by numbers (1, 2, 3 etc) so you can know which object to move first in order to get to the exit door.
The navigation controls are situated on the left side of the game for easy access. No problems encountered with that during the game play. Most of the time, you will find yourself having to go to the platform that is on the other side, having some traps in the middle. In order to speed across to the other side, just hold the button that has the direction you need. You will be able to make it to the other side without the need of a jump button.
Overall, I find the game pleasing to the eyes. Each level is done up to great detailed e.g. the graphics are well-drawn for each level. The full version has dropped from a price of $7.99 to $4.99. If you are unsure whether to get the full version, just download the lite version and give it a try.
Check out the game in the Itunes Appstore.

Note: Here is a trick for those who like to try – you can adjust the location of the navigation control by tapping on “configure controls” in the middle of the game and choose the location where you like to place the navigation control.
