I am a big fan of Poppy’s iPhoneÂ games and yesterday saw a release of Â Hotdog Panic, a new game adopting signature style of game collectables byÂ TomTom (Poppy F). Already mentioned hereÂ Sweep Man andÂ Giant Metal Robot,Â Hotdog Panic is aboutÂ Mr. Hotdog who loves hot dogs, but hates mustard. Your task is a simple one,Â throw away the hot dog that served with mustard source. Simple and fun.
I should also mention that Hotdog Panic is the first ofÂ Poppy’s iPhoneÂ gamesÂ that includes online ranking system. A nice addition which I hope will be added to other games too.
What is wonderful in the games by TomTom is that they are simple creations where most effort has been put into the visual elements. Each game is a form of a comic strip, a simple idea that evolved into an interactive game. It’s hard to call these just games as in their own right they are very personal exploratory creations. It is best to think of them as designer toys, keychains, mini apps to enrich your iPhone app collection. Collect them all and you win – pure joy. AboutÂ Â Giant Metal Robot
