The World’s Strongest Man for iPhone/iPad releases on the app store for the US market today. Digital Goldfish Ltd released ‘The World’s Strongest Man’ for iOS to New Zealand and other markets on 8th March 2012. The promos and the teasers sure looked exciting but whether the game lives up to the excitement of the original brand itself is what we had to find out.
The World’s Strongest Man Game Review for iPhone and iPad
I downloaded this app, fired it up and skipped through all the menus with lots of anticipation to get straight to the action. And when the game did start, I was totally disappointed. Those heavy duty weight lifts, boulder pushes and truck pulls are administered by the means of multiple tap and slide controls that give the gameplay a boring feel. All that strength and power doesn’t just equate with the flimsy controls that the developers have given this game.
That was just the free play mode. Little did I know was only bound for more disappointment in the career mode, which unfolds like a story as you train over weeks under a veteran coach and take part in tournaments. And don’t you build your hopes when you do see your menu options under the training mode because none of those Africa Stone Lifts, Car Carry or Tyre Flip are actual workouts. Its just a menu (like in MMORPGs) where you see your grip, strength, speed, endurance or focus increase!
Maybe its just me but this game definitely did not turn out to be what I thought after seeing the trailers. There might be a few of you out there who will certainly beg to differ but from my years of experience reviewing iOS games, I can certainly tell that this game lacks ‘the strength’ needed to pull it all the way to the top of the charts. So try it at your own risk! The World’s Strongest Man is available for downloads on the app store and is priced at a whopping $2.99
