Help John Gore save you from thousands of flesh eating furries.
Chillingo, makers of the popular iDracula, churned out another shooter for the iPhone, except instead of blasting undead minions, you slaughter hordes of evil furries. Minigore casts you as John Gore, a bearded tough guy that attempts to save humanity from the fuzzy menace by any means necessary. Cute, addictive and bloody, it's a steal at .99.
Similar to iDracula, you hold the iPhone horizontally and control the on screen character with two virtual joysticks; left maneuvers John and right fires his weapon. And like iDracula, monsters (in this case, furries) come at you from all directions. Your job is to kill as many of them as possible without getting hit twice. If that happens, John drops dead and the creatures appear to feast on his corpse.
Blasting the monsters before they reach you eventually becomes impossible, since more and more critters clog the screen. They also come in different varieties, including ones that break into smaller furries when shot, and others that enjoy playing with fire.
Fortunately, John carries a machine gun with unlimited ammo, and can also wield a double-barreled shotgun. And if he collects a certain number of four-leaf clovers, he transforms (temporarily) into an invincible beast capable of squashing furries.
All of this carnage occurs in a wooded area designed to resemble a pop-up book. Even John and the furries were designed as blocks that make them pop off the screen. We just wish there were additional environments to explore. Wandering through the same old map gets old, and with only a handful of weapons and limited enemy types, we need more variety to keep playing.
Ultimately, Minigore's addictive because A.) you'll enjoy shooting furries by the thousands, and B.) you'll want to upload high scores to the online leaderboard. Now factor in the cheap price of admission, and there's no reason why you should avoid this delightful and bloody shooter.
What's Hot: Adorable characters, pop-up book style graphics, furious shooting, decent amount of blood, you can play while listening to your own music, online leaderboard.
What's Not: Only one map, not enough enemy types and weapons.
