Bobby Carrot 3 Review

A few weeks ago, I wrote a review of Bobby Carrot 2, and I said that it was extremely fun. Well, Bobby Carrot 3, costing $1.99, is even more fun because of the inclusion of several new features. In Bobby Carrot 3, you guide Bobby Carrot through 55 challenging levels, collecting energy stars. While you are traveling, you encounter obstacles, such as spikes, paths that rotate after you have been through them, lily pads that float on the water, and can only be propelled when you are on a space next to them, buttons that change the flow of the water, and locks that are only opened once you find the key. Also, there is a new addition in Bobby Carrot 3, the ability to swim. Once you collect all the energy stars, you must make your way to the end of the level, shown as a red and white circle.
In Bobby Carrot 3, there are two control methods; Swipe, and Joystick. In Swipe, you swipe anywhere on the screen to move Bobby in that direction. In Joystick, you press buttons in the lower left corner, and control Bobby that way. There is also an option to turn full screen on or off; When it is off, it shows the arcade box around the game, but in full screen, the entire screen is the game.
The ability to swim makes this Bobby Carrot game rise above the rest. Although you might think that being able to step into the water and swim would make the game easier, it doesn't. Before you can swim in each level, you have to collect a scuba mask. Also, you can't just get into the water anywhere, there are specific spaces that are a transition from land to water. The energy stars that are underwater can not be accessed if you are on the land level. This adds a lot of strategy to the game, because you have to figure out how to get the the transition spaces, after you get the scuba mask, and also make sure you'll be able to get back to the exit of the level.
If you are a fan of Bobby Carrot games, and are good at them, you will beat Bobby Carrot 3 quickly. The game has some challenging levels, but is also easy. On the other hand, since there are 55 levels, if you finish the game, you will not remember the solution to the earlier levels, and you can play through the game again.

If you liked the earlier Bobby Carrot games, get Bobby Carrot 3. It is a good puzzle game, and is definitely worth $1.99.
