Features & Use
Test device: Samsung Galaxy Nexus
Android version: 4.0.4
The objective is to wipe out all of your opponents using as few hand grenades as possible. Clear the way of obstacles by blasting them to bits and thus exposing your enemies.
Take aim using the touchscreen controls. Check the bar to see with how much force grenades are being thrown; change force by swyping horizontally. You can also change the direction by swyping across the screen vertically. Nice and easy.
The number of remaining grenades is displayed on the right where you can also pause the game or go back set the level back to the beginning. Even grenade explosions can be stopped, though you will lose the grenade even if it doesn't explode.
There's an ad banner on the left side of the screen, but this didn't bother me as the game is navigated with the right hand, meaning you don't risk accidentally clicking on the ads.
If you're feeling stuck, check out how levels are to be resolved in the pause menu, though only a limited number of times. Great option, as it allows users to keep playing even when they can't figure something out.
Check out how well you did at the end of each level (score and medals à la Angry Birds).
The gameplay is simple and fun and there are 12 worlds and a whopping 370 levels to get through, meaning that if you're a Fragger fan you'll get your dose of grenade fun.
Screen & Controls
The gaming concept is basic and hence controls are nice and simple, too. Fragger won't blow your socks off with its design, but we like it nonetheless. Higher resolution would not go amiss, however—Fragger is quite pixelated on the Galaxy Nexus.
Speed & Stability
Fragger loads fast and the game runs smoothly. It didn't crash on us once.
Fragger is available for free from the Play Store and there is an ad banner.
Some features require coins which can be purchased in the Play Store, so the game is more of a 'freemium', which I'm not a fan of.
