Bunny Escape ($0.99) by T-Rab Studio is a sweet looking physics-based game for the iPhone that will have you jumping out of your seat. Help the plump little hare get all of the carrots without losing his life.
Players send the big-eyed bunny sailing across the screen in search of carrots. To make him move, swipe the screen in the direction you want him to go. With proper aim and swipe speed, he will get across the chasm and make it to the exit portal, all while collecting carrots as he flies past.
The big-eyed puffball isn’t the only bunny in this ballpark. There are five different rabbits, four of which need to be rescued. Once unlocked, they will be added to the game on levels where they are needed most.
For example, on one level the explosive bunny will be needed to clear away thorny shrubbery so that the double dash bunny can make his way to the exit portal. Each bunny has a different ability that will be needed at some point in the game.
There are 50 different levels, each with obstacles that become more and more difficult. The bunnies’ movement changes, depending on what they need to do next. For example, if you need to get a bunny across a very wide gap, you can swipe long and fast and barely make it across. However, that same bunny will fly across the screen with the tiniest of taps when you only need him to jump over a small rock.
For this reason, I found the game to create a slight bit of irritation. I almost didn’t make it past the seventh level. Just when I was about to give up, I made the jump with accidental luck. It makes for a challenging game, but can also make you just want to stop playing.
This adorable game is definitely worth the download for fans of challenging physics-based games. If you have patience and good timing, grab a copy today. There is also an HD version for the iPad for the same price and lite versions for both devices. If you want to see whether you can handle the challenge before spending the money, play the free app first.
