You’ll have a whale of a time
Whale Trail Review
by on March 21, 2012
When Whale Trail found it on iOS in 2011, the game was so much of a success that Penguin optioned a book on the titular character’s adventures. Now it is on Android, we can finally see what all the fuss is about.
From the off, you know that Whale Tail is going to be something special. Firstly, there’s the music. Soundtracked by Gruff Rhys from Super Furry Animals fame, Whale Trail is not only a feast for the eyes, it’s pretty darn good on the ears too.
For all its hype, Whale Trail’s gameplay is surprisingly quite unoriginal. There’s nothing here that you haven’t seen in Tiny Wings – you still have to touch the screen at the right time to make sure you get the best amount of speed and the collectibles within the game are pretty similar too.
But the whole game is wrapped in much more of a psychedelic bubble which means it is much more appealing to kids and adults alike.
And there’s more options for fun, including loop the loops, the collection of bubbles and just enough flight of fancy to keep you coming back for more.
Beautifully presented and fun to play Whale Trail is a joy – even if it is a little on the pricey side.
