Cover Orange is a physics based puzzle game. You are asked to protect oranges from acid rain by manipulating the levels with a given amount of items. Once you have used all these items a cloud will appear and try to destroy your oranges with its acid rain – well, it’s more like acid balls in order to make the physics mechanic work.
One of the games bad points is, strangely, also a good point: Sometimes it depends a bit on luck whether your oranges get hit by some acid rain or make it out alive. It won’t happen often that despite the correct solution you will lose, but it most definitely will. The good side of this: For every time it happens, you will come across another level where, thanks to a bit of luck, you will manage to find a really crazy way to solve the puzzle. So in the end it still feels fair. And at least to me it always feels very rewarding to have ‘tricked’ a game with an alternative solution.
The controls are very slick and simple since you only need to point to the place where you want an item to drop down. The game is also nice to look at with pretty, hand-drawn background images and cute animations. The sound is nothing to write home about, but the sound effects combined with the catchy music definitely get the job done.
Cover Orange comes with loads of levels. And by loads I mean a whooping 160! The crazy thing is there are even more to come in future updates. Now that’s what I call proper post release support! For that amount of content, the $0.99 price tag is more than fair and a lite version is also available. If you are still looking for a new physics based puzzle games, this is a clear recommendation.
