    Open Sea! Go Down Mo!'s review

    Published: 2011-10-24, by Peter Warrior.

    Help the people to reach their promised land.

    • Absolutely no nonsense fun.
    • Brain racker.
    • Great design

    "Can you draw out Leviathan with a fishhook, too?"

    Open Sea is an hilarious game where you ought to help to people to cross the Red Sea -for example- casting your little daily miracles. Exempli gratia, splitting sea apart, repel thirty feet high waves, landing lighting bolts upon sinners and wrong-doers and multiplying fish and chips at snack time. This really means that it's a timing game with somewhat strategy at higher levels. As everything related to miracles, it's hard to explain yet easy to understand once you've seen it.

    Water blocks your faithful herd from arriving to the promised land so when you tap on a "closed" wave, a gap will appear and your followers will be able to pass through dry ground. Split waves successively to create corridors. If a corridor is too narrow you can stretch it wider in exchange of shrinking other gaps. Try to save even those poor drunken souls, the elder, the frightened and protect them all from mummies, knaves and Egyptian gods of death that only deserve to end drown because the voice from the sky was pretty convincing . By the way, repel evil ships and prevent your followers harm themselves. Throw'em a bolt or two to spur the good fellows on and shock the evil down.

    At some time you'll meet heroes, who are able to cast lesser miracles (walk on water, raise the dead) to help you and your people. And, if you're lucky enough and behave you might sail on a legendary ark. Every level is rated with the currently in-style three stars score, depending on how many people you saved. If you need a break of campaign mode, there's another one waiting: time trial is a mind blaster.

    Open Sea is as simple as great. In some way, to give you an idea it reminds Lemmings. Every character has been designed with care and The Pixelizers have taken enormous trouble over the lovely music, the fun gameplay and the overall performance of the whole game. In short, a great great game. Original, fun and with an adequate upgrade policy. If free version came only with the first seven missions but included no ads, this complete version unlocks every level. Once you upgrade it, every feature is multiplied and makes Open Sea! worth every cent. In addition, last update brought an opening video worth watching twice.

    Anyway, we predict a long and prosper life to this game. If their developers don't fail to add levels now and then, a new character not too often and, in resume, to merchandize it properly -call it rovioing if you like- this game may be one of the best hits ever.

    Until then, it's a strongly recommended game for all ages and beliefs, which can be endlessly enjoyed by from the most casual gamer who has just landed on Smartphoneland to biblical level players who need a smart break from whatever they were doing before.

    "An epic, sweeping game... a treat to look at... keeping you consistently interested in playing... exactly what you want from a casual game" JayIsGames, Voted Best Mobile Action Game of 2011!
    "Great design... reminds Lemmings... worth every cent... a strongly recommended game for all ages and beliefs" AppsZoom, 5/5
    "A breath of fresh air... lot of fun... easy to pick up and spectacularly moreish... the sort of game that makes smartphone gaming so enjoyable" PocketGamer, Silver Award
    "A blast to play" Android-Apps

    "Thou shall Part the Sea With thy Almighty Finger, for the People shall Run Safe Across. Thou shall Not Let Them Drown!"

    Mo works as a prophetic leader in Pharaoh's Egypt. He urges the people to flee across the sea... by foot.
    Touch the sea to part it open, swipe, shake your smartphone to flood everything, and tap the screen to strike lightning bolts!

    Journey through the whole country to the promised land, on sixty paced, smart, action-packed, or puzzle missions, and five unlockable Challenge games... Lead hilarious people: panicked girls, sleepy sloths, slower elders, zigzagging drunkards, dumbs who turn back... Repel evil ships and shock mummies and wicked wizards!

    Your adventure will let you cross heroes' path, who will join the people and help them with miracles, like Jess who allows people to walk on water... And Abe, the Lovers, or El, whose miracle will allow you to turn villains back to ashes! And last but not least, take control of the legendary Nono's Ark...

    A unique and highly addictive action/puzzle/timing game for everyone, easy to grasp, but it will challenge your dexterity and tickle your brain the more you progress in the adventure.
    Fantastic stylized graphics, refreshing addictive gameplay both simple and deep, funny and cute characters, humor, and catchy soundtracks, are what you will get in this game... of biblical dimension!

    Game features:
    Acclaimed game design, graphics, and sfx
    Innovative, intuitive and addictive game mechanics designed for hand-held touch screens
    60 original missions
    Crisp HD visuals
    6 hilarious kinds of people
    5 Heroes with exciting miracles and upgrades to help the people
    3 kinds of foes, each requiring specific strategy to deal with
    Campaign mode evolving through the map of your People's journey, with stars collecting and optional paths
    5 Challenge games: "Crossing of the Dead", "Save 'Em All", "Sacred Land", "Time Trial" and "Time Trial Extreme"

    Fun fact: God is friendly and stars as is in Open Sea! (Only once, when He had a very bad day He wreaked havoc upon Sodom and Gomorrah and the tower of Babel, rising too close.)

    Fun disclaimer: Open Sea! is an original creation from indie studio The Pixelizers. Any similarity to actual religious prophets like Moses, Jesus, Abraham, Eli, or to Bible events and legends known as Adam and Eve, Noah, the Exodus or the crossing of the Red Sea, is purely coincidental...
    or almost.
