Platypus, from Handmark, ranks among the best-looking side-scrolling shooting games to debut in the App Store. Heck, make that one of the best-looking games in the entire App Store.
2D shooters get a fresh face with painstakingly detailed, stylized claymation graphics. The power-up system is fun and engaging, although the gameplay can get a little shallow at times, especially during boss fights.
A great shooter, looks great, plays great…. It’s pretty great!
Besides three degrees of difficulties and an offline high score list, Platypus doesn't contain many opportunities for replay value. The wi-fi multiplayer is a nice touch, however. A few intense moments aside, this casual shooter is more about easygoing and consistent progression, which suits the iPhone very well.
This puts Platypus in the slightly awkward position of being attractive enough to pull in both fans and newcomers alike, but perhaps only having the goods to sustain and entertain the former. Nevertheless, it's not a bad thing to be a memorable first step and there's little chance of anyone forgetting the delights Platypus has molded onto the iPhone.
