Saving Yello: Written Android App Review
Saving Yello is the latest physics game sensation for Android. This colorful (and somewhat morose) title was a hit on iOS, and finally made its way to the better operating system. Wondering how it’s holding up? We’ll give you the highs and the lows in our android app review of Saving Yello.
Concept & Gameplay
Yello belongs to a rather forgetful little girl. She’s always leaving Yello just lying around her room, not exactly conducive to living, since Yellow is a fish. Your job in Saving Yello is to guide him back to his bowl in the allotted number of moves before he dries out completely.
There’s more to it, naturally. You’ll also be taking out as many of the little girl’s toys as possible. Consider it fishy revenge. Like we said, this title’s a bit warped.
Despite some strange themes, Saving Yello is an awesome physics puzzler. You’ll use the slingshot motion and a ton of boosts, from TNT bombs to flames, to navigate more easily. There’s a certain amount of skill to playing the app. The levels are interesting and full of crazy contraptions. To call Saving Yello amusing is a bit of an understatement. It’s just plain fun to play.
There are currently 45 levels in the game. The free version comes with ten, but more about that in a bit. The levels are broken up into different regions (or rooms, technically) so there’s plenty of variety in the app as well.
Layout & Design
Yello is an adorable character, and the app is full of sharp, smart cartoon graphics in vibrant colors. It’s well done all the way around, with just enough detail to keep the app interesting without seeing overdone.
A lot of users have commented on Saving Yello’s slow load time, and we must admit we saw some evidence of this delay during our gaming. It’s especially noticeable when you start playing the very first level of any section. It takes some time for that level to load. It does seem like the inter-level transitions have become a bit smoother as the app’s received a few updates. We’re sure the devs understand the issue. It’s quite common to see this in apps being ported to Android from iOS.
As we mentioned earlier, the app version that we’re reviewing was free to download. The initial download includes the app’s first ten levels and is entirely free. It’s enough to give you a good taste of what the app’s all about, and certainly made us hungry for more.
Saving Yello is an awesome mix of adorable graphics, addictive physics-based gameplay and lively variety. Upgrading to the full version of this app costs $.99 and we definitely suggest taking the plunge.
