Our Score: 4 / 5 – Awesome
What?! The idea of a sliding, farting dinosaur doesn’t excite you? It should, as it justifies the game’s boost mechanic that doesn’t involve a jetpack for once. You see, in Tiny Toots you are a dinosaur who farts and eats peppers to build up a boost to help propel him further.
Controls are simple, featuring a slide from bottom to up to gain the maximum height of using the hills to your advantage to gain maximum height and it soon becomes rhythmic to go up and down in a smooth motion so the dinosaur doesn’t lose momentum. Should you lose said momentum, police and a mad doctor in a helicopter come after you and stop you in your dino tracks. From there you start at the beginning, but now you’re being chased by your ghost and gives you an indication as to how you’re doing and whether you’ll get caught or not.
The sounds of the farting are subtle, yet hilarious and the music doesn’t get monotonous – but of course, as with all games you can adjust the volume levels to your desire. This is a solid outing from Tradewest Digital and I will continue to play the game for OpenFeint achievements and to beat not only my score, but friends scores who appear in the game.
This is an easy recommend for adults and children alike. My 5-year old daughter laughs at each fart noise and just enjoys the easy and fast gameplay across colorful landscapes. She was able to grasp the concept quickly and urged to play my phone as much as possible. For $1, you can’t go wrong with Tiny Toots.
