Following the success of Chop Chop Ninja, comes Chop Chop Caveman. It might not have had nearly 2 million downloads, but it’s still a worthy game to check out if you enjoy a bit of arcade, action and adventures.
Chop Chop Caveman is very similar to the original Chop Chop Ninja game. It shares identical styles when it comes to graphics, sound and gameplay. The only major differences are the character and story plot. So is it still worth purchasing this game although they’re almost identical?
Chop Chop Caveman follows a… you’ve guess it, a caveman trolling through the prehistoric era. He’s one hungry fellow, so the aim of the game is to satisfy the caveman’s hunger. You would have to constantly feed him delicious dinosaur meat to ensure he doesn’t starve to death. Of course, there are obstacles along the way like enemies you’d have to kill off, cliffs you’d have to jump across and dangerous objects you should avoid touching altogether.
What I like about Chop Chop Caveman is how it incorporates puzzle elements into the game. Besides numblessly running and bashing your way through levels, there are also various hidden objects you must collect. Some parts you’d encounter obstacles where you would have to do some lateral thinking. You would need use tools and move around objects in order to progress. Although most of them are pretty easy to figure out, they still add a bit of challenge to the game.
,p>One thing I didn’t like about Chop Chop Ninja was the controls. Gamerizon tried to make the controls simpler by having no controls at all. You would lead your character by simply tapping or swiping the screen. Easy enough, until jumping across to the other side required much more concentration, timing and effort.
Nevertheless, Gamerizon has addressed this issue by providing a d-pad for Chop Chop Caveman, making it more accurate and responsive. Now, there’s more control to your character without him walking off the cliff when he was supposed to jump.
For the price, Chop Chop Caveman is certainly worth the $0.99. There are a total of 20 levels split across four worlds, providing you with days, if not weeks of fun. A small downside I experienced were the checkpoints not being properly saved. Often I found myself having to start the level all over again upon accidentally exiting the game.
If you enjoyed Chop Chop Ninja, then you wouldn’t be disappointed at Chop Chop Caveman. Although the two games are quite the same, the add-on of a d-pad in Caveman is what makes me enjoy the game that much more.
Pros: D-pad controls, great graphics and sound, fun action and puzzle
Cons: Auto-save is a hit and miss, maybe too similar to Chop Chop Ninja, nothing new
