Features & Use
I have to be honest: the first time I attempted to play Plingi Juggle I felt a little bit overwhelmed.
To spare you the same cluelessness, here’s my rundown of the gameplay:
Picture standing beneath a tree in a sort of garden. Atop the tree is a spider who is in the process of picking fruit only to toss it down. Your mission is to catch the falling fruit using spider nets and throw them back in the air so that they don't hit the ground and break. Tossing them in the air three times is what it takes for the fruit to reach the machine which will turn them into delicious fruit puree.
In the beginning you'll find that the spiders are quite mellow and don't pick too many fruit so as not to overwhelm you, but as soon as you've found your bearings and have come a little further they'll start more or less bombarding you with fruit. This calls for quick thinking and skills with the net.
But don't worry—with a bit of practice you'll soon get the hang of it.
There are two game modes to choose from: level and infinity. The former really has a tremendous amount of levels, so it should keep you busy for a while.
Plingi Juggle is a very simple kind of game – oh, and did I mention that it's free? Always a nice extra bonus – but it makes for good fun and it's the perfect game for those in-between situations.
Screen & Controls
The main menu is your go-to for all major Plingi Juggle features, including regulating the score and sound effects volume controls.
Hit Play and select either level mode or infinity mode. Then you can choose to either start playing straight away or else get an overview of what the level has in store for you. The Pause button is located at the top right of the display.
The arrows indicate how spiders are to be navigated: just hot the left or right side of the display in order to get them to move in that direction.
Whenever you unpause the game a small countdown will appear to let you know how much time is left before you are plunged back into the game.
In conclusion: Plingi Juggle’s controls and graphics are well done.
Speed & Stability
The game loads quickly and waiting times for unlocked levels are minimal. Plingi Juggle ran smoothly overall.
