Mankind has risen from the slime over millennia, battling disease, bears, and general hardship in order to reach the pinnacle of what we call civilization. It's here we find neurosurgery, Hot Pockets, and Everplay Interactive's 1001 Attempts, in which you are a pixelly gooball avoiding laser beams. Hoorah!
No, but really. Aim the gooball and jump between the top and bottom of the screen, attempting to snag the ruby gems along the way without smacking into a rogue hazard. The further you progress, the more devious the hazards become, including criss-crossing laser quilts and merciless heat-seeking missiles. The pacing is set at frantic, and ever-increasing. Chirpy beats goad you into the perception of a genuinely engaging challenge.
Addiction is nearly inevitable. Three slips and the round is over, but you'll be informed exactly how many more gems must be collected before gaining access to....... another gooball sprite. What magic powers might it possess? Hint: none. But it's a different color, so!
My sarcasm faucet might be leaking this morning, but I actually really enjoyed this game. Well. "Enjoyed." I can't seem to bring myself to uninstall it. Watching the screen fill up entirely with things determined to kill my gooball is somehow masochistically gleeful, and just stupid enough that it's ideal to fill up two minutes while I wait for the metro.
So what if it doesn't quite reach the heights of Hot Pockets? Everplay Interactive's 1001 Attempts is still berserk, harmless fun.
