You may remember Pop Corny from a while ago - we covered it when it was first launched for the BlackBerry PlayBook. I enjoyed playing it then and I still do now as it has made its way to BlackBerry 10. The game was first available on Android and iOS before the PlayBook but the developer saw the potential of the new BlackBerry platform and decided to commit.
Pop Corny is the name of the character in the game. He loves to eat pop corn funnily enough. As the corn flows onto the screen you must shoot it which will cause it to pop. Once popped he can eat it. It isn't quite as easy as that though. If the corn gets to Pop Corny before you have popped it he will be damaged. And if you manage to shoot a piece of corn that has already been popped then that will be bad too.
As you progress through the levels more and more corn fills the screen and that's when things get a little tense. Some of the corn supply coins which you can collect for extra treats. You do get some help in the way of bombs and shields but these are limited so you had better rely on your shooting skills.
Pop Corny comes with a reasonable price tag of only £0.75/$0.99 so it won't break the bank. The graphics look even better to my eye on the Z10 compared to the PlayBook - this must be to the screen resolution. The Z10 sure is crisp.
Features of the game include:
- Simple but deep one-touch/sling-like control
- Upgrade your popcorn box by completing objectives
- Multiple stages to play
- More than 40 achievements to complete
- Collect "drachma coins" and spend them on bonus upgrades, bombs, shields, etc
- The first ever endless eater!
