Gorilla Jump is an example of the re-born of vertical platformer genre, that we left far behind in the Arcades. Why? Basically thanks to mobile device tilt controls.
The goal in Gorilla Jump is scoring as much as possible. The further you get and the more coins, bananas and other items you grab, the more you score. Will you reach the stars? If you do so you'll be able to show off by posting your best marks on online leaderboards provided by OpenFeint.
Graphics are simple, poor I would say. However, that's not the cornerstone of timewaster-like games, but it's playability. Anyway, it should be enhanced graphically. Use tilt controls to steer the gorilla: move left and right to change direction, tap the screen to shoot a banana when an enemy is at reach.
There are 4 different kind of enemies: snakes, tigers, safari hunters and native. Knoch them all down by throwing bananas. Likewise, there are items and boosters: trampolines, jetpacks, super gorilla, etc. to help you get even further.
Simplicity and playability. Good timewaster.
