Do you think you have quick reflexes? The Windows Phone game Naargh! may have something to say about that.
There's not much to the game but what's there is challenging and oddly addictive. Naargh! dares you to tap on all the red faces before times runs out.
It sounds simple but as the pace quickens, the game becomes painfully challenging. While Naargh! may make you yell "Aargh!" in frustration, the game has an addictive quality that pulls you back for more.
Naargh!'s main menu will greet you with options to view the online high scores, view the help screens, mute the sound, exit the game and play the game.
When you tap "Play" you will get the customary "Ready,3,2,1,Go!" countdown and then the screen fill will a collection of cartoon faces. Some of the faces will be highlighted in red which are your targets. You have to tap all the red faces before the color drains from them.
Oh... to make it interesting Naargh! throws in a few skull and cross bones that you shouldn't tap. Tap the skull and the game's over. Run out of time, the game's over.
Naargh! will throw you a bone to help with beating the timer. As you tap red faces you earn points. For every 2,000 points you will earn an hourglass that will replenish your game timer. You'll have to be zippy in tapping the hourglass before the timer runs out, but it is a life line of sorts.
The number of faces targeted to tap are random, as is the number of faces you'll see collectively on the screen. Throw in the random skull and Naargh! can be a handful.
We seen other quality reflex/speed oriented games for our Windows Phones and Naargh! easily joins them. Graphics are well done and the randomness of the target placement keeps you guessing. Naargh! is a challenging Windows Phone game and well worth trying.
Naargh! is a free game available for both Windows Phone 8 and 7.x devices. You can pick up Naargh! here in the Windows Phone Store.
