Smash Frenzy 3 Review
- Review by Mick
Smash Frenzy 3, the latest installment of the series, puts you in charge of once again destroying the evil mage and saving the world. In this game you will experience 3D Breakout style action like never before. Along the way you encounter a large variety of maps and worlds all full of interesting characters and elaborate setups for you to smash.
The evil mage is back at it again (for the third time) so it is up to you to battle your way there and destroy him. To get to the mage you have to face 80 levels worth of enemies and obstacles. Along the way you have to smash islands, forts, sharks and a host of of other objects to complete each level. All the levels will take place in four different worlds, each with a unique theme. For example, the first world places you in a pirate themed world full of sharks pirates and gorillas.
Breakout on 3D Steroids
The gameplay is similar to other Breakout style games. You have a bat at the bottom of the screen, that is controlled by your mouse, and a ball that bounces around the screen destroying the various objects on the map. It is your goal to prevent the ball from going past the bottom of the screen. You act as a sort of goalie. As you smash various items, items come out of them and slowly approach the bottom of the screen. These items can be different things: power-ups, extra points, extra lives, and even power-downs.
Collecting power-ups enhances your ability to clear levels. You can receive items like a wider bat or weapons like a missile launcher. There are tons of different power-ups to get that help you along the way, but watch out for the bad power-ups because they make your life harder. To pass each level you will have to destroy a certain amount of the level and collect an item that will advance you to the next level.
Interesting Physics Engine
One unique aspect of Smash Frenzy 3 is the physics engine that controls the environments. All the items interact appropriately. When you knock over a box it will fall down and knock over other things along the way. This makes for some pretty spectacular crashes as you smash through the levels.
Nice 3D Graphics
The graphics in the game are great. All the levels are well detailed and in full 3D appearance. All the pirates and sharks interacting add a humorous effect to the game. In one level a bunch of sharks are playing poker. The sound is another great quality of the game. When you hit a pirate they shout, even cats let out a meow when you bump them with your ball. The sound and graphics really help make this a great game.
No Difficulty Settings
This game really only lacks in a few areas. There are no difficulty settings, so if you find the game too easy or too hard there is no way to adjust that. The levels do increase in difficulty as you go, but it would still be nice to adjust the baseline difficulty. Another issue is with clearing the levels. If you happen to miss the token that advances you to the next level you have to clear all the items from the screen to advance. This can be very challenging to accurately control the ball. You might find yourself spending ten minutes trying to break one box.
Conclusion - A Smash Hit
With eighty levels in four worlds you won't soon run out of things to do. Easy controls and a humorous environment make this game playable by anyone. The whole family will love playing Smash Frenzy 3. Who wouldn't enjoy smashing pirates, sharks and gorillas all in one place?
