Parents who don’t mind forking over their iPhones to keep their little ones entertained will have now have an official reason to do so. Sapus Tongue is a classic game designed for kids nine years old and older. Sapus Tongue is bound to keep those little hands moving.
To play Sapus Tongue, you start with your phone in a horizontal position and whirl it around helping Sapus the Frog and Monus the monkey gain as much speed as possible. Then, tap the screen to launch the character from the tree. You earn points by how far your character tumbles. The farther away you toss your character the higher the score.
The graphics are playful, cute and simple. Sapus the Frog and Monus the monkey are simply-drawn characters. The transitions between screens are a fun too. They slide flip and turn away to reveal instructions, menu options and game play. Playing Sapus Tongue isn’t too difficult.
The only thing you have to keep track of is a tree from which your chosen character swings in order to be launched further away. The music in Sapus Tongue is fun and over the top! The cowboy western tunes makes the player feel like they’re on a mission. It’s heroic. It’s wild.
Movement on the screen is easy to follow and the controls aren’t complicated. There is one possible danger. Moves are activated by whirling around the iPhone to help your character get enough speed to launch from the tree. This could be a little scary with younger children given how delicate the handset is.
Sapus Tongue is bound to keep kids entertained but probably not for long. The game is easy to use and very basic. That may be its strength and its weakness. Furthermore, there is no real challenge for players. There is only one static level. There is no nemesis and the other characters don’t interact with the main character in any way.
If you need a quick temporary distraction Sapus Tongue is not an expensive buy. If you’re looking for a quick distraction or to calm your kid down for a whole ten minutes this application is perfectly suitable.
