Pony Surprise review

This is probably the gayest game ever. I am not saying that that is a bad thing, but rather an extremely colourful and blingy thingy. It might also be considered to be a rather simple match game for kids. Colourful and blingy work well for that description as well.

Pony Surprise is a remove matching blocks puzzler. The playing field keeps filling up, and by tapping match 3 or more you remove the blocks. Making combos give more points. A PonyPower meter at the top of the screen needs to be filled to complete the level. That is it.

img_1039The graphics are quite simple but extremely vivid, and colourful with a definite childish style. I guess this is definitely a design choice to make the game feel fluffy fun. You unlock images of ponies with the same kind of style. The effects, and nice comments that you are great make the game quite enjoyable.

There is no music, and the sound effects are quite limited. You can play your own music, and have the sound effects as well.

With no online functionality, and only the odd image to unlock there isn’t much to Pony Surprise. If you get a call or exit the game you have to restart from level 1 the next time.

I can’t recommend Pony Surprise at all, and that is not because of the gayness. Actually the gay colour scheme is the only reason for anyone to get this as it is quite uplifting. The gameplay is slow and boring, and there isn’t any reason to play this more than once.

    I had a promo code for the taking for this game…but I decided to let someone else have it. You have to admit, it does fill a niche. 9-year-old girls play iPhone games too!

    By the way, I think I am slightly aroused by that pony. I mean, from that 3/4 behind angle, bathed in pastel…it just kind of makes me tingle.

    Maybe it’s just sexual confusion from the app telling me that I’m a star. I don’t get much of that, you know.
