    Pocket God

    For starters, this game is great fun. Its one of the most five star rated apps out there. Now, you would think that this is directed to little kids. Around the age of eight. But no. This is for everyone. Who knew that torturing little people would be so much fun?

    First off you will see a bunch of natives called Pygyms. They look and sound weird but you will get to know them. They basically just walk around and do what there instinct tells them. If its build a fire, or start to fish. But the only way they die, its by you. You can fling them,

    ...burn them, even feed them to sharks. And thats why this game is so addictive. Its only a little violent, but really fun. There are many interactive things to do in this game. You can even go underwater.

    The online interactions are really interesting too. You can see your achievements from killing people playing (HEADSH0T...) Chat about the game itself, add friends and even see the leaderboard. It uses Feint, a well known, in game social network. Feint comes completely free with the game so the only thing you have to do is sign up! Feint also works with other games like Epic Pet Wars.

    Now the only bad things are the replay rate and the music. The game gets a little boring after you've done most of the interactions. You basically need to wait until the next update comes out so you can have a new game. Which is about every three weeks to a month. And after awhile the music gets annoying. But doesn't every games music get annoying?

    Affordability: 10/10 ($0.99)
    Gameplay: 9/10
    Music & SFX 6/10
    Replay Rate: 4/10
    Should I Get It? (1 Being "Heck No" - 10 Being "Heck Yeah"): 9/10
    Fun Meter (Just For Fun): 10/10

    Overall: 8/10​

    Agreed. You could of put screenshots up about the jumping on cloud thing, and the underwater part too. Don't know much about Pocket God, I just play it on my friends iPod touch when I can

    Nice review. You definitely should mention that the app is updated very frequently with new things, because that's what keeps it fun.

    You do mention it a little bit near the end, but I think that it really deserves more than a passing mention.

    I'd say that for tomorrow, focus more on discussing the quality of the gameplay, maybe talk about some flaws that haven't been fixed of hat the all could use in the future.

    Good first review, though.

    great review, and like what has been said just more in depth in discussing features in gameplay, perhaps a few comparisons

    I personally think the game's getting really crap with all the updates... theres just too much crammed into one app for me
