Impressions –

The cutest little creatures waddle around on rails while you determine which twists and turns they take with a simple tap of the screen. It sounds so simple. Like it should be the easiest thing in the world; then they start going the wrong directions, and you watch in horror as they drop into the wrong hole, ruining your perfect run while you wail in frustration and despair. That’s…basically how a game of Poly Path goes.

By escorting as many little cuties to their homes as possible, you accumulate stars which can then be used to equip said cuties with various hats to increase their cuteness by a factor of approximately 10. There are eight of these hats available to free users, with eight more available to premium users. As for levels, 75 of the frustrating things available to free users, with an additional 30 levels for those who purchase the full game (a bargain at $0.99).

Poly Path really is quite endearing; it makes you smile and giggle helplessly while it destroys your hopes and dreams. If you take your eyes off it for just a moment, it totally screws you over. And you can’t even be angry, because it was your own fault that the little cuties went the wrong way; you just weren’t paying diligent attention.

Sigh.

What I like

  • Adorable. Just. Adorable.
  • Challenging but simple.
  • Modest ads.
  • Inexpensive premium version.

What I don’t

  • Micromanaging something so adorable takes a real strain on the player.

Conclusion – 

This casual game features simple (if challenging) game mechanics, a ton of free content, and a worthwhile premium experience. The art and sounds are high quality, and the game itself is very well done.
