In the game, players will take on the role of the red rabbit, chasing a white rabbit through a series of doors. As we all know, blindly chasing white rabbits for the sake of curiosity never turns out well.
This is a game that’s easy to pick up and play, but be warned: once you start playing, it’s hard to put down. To play, you will swipe on the screen to move left and right on ledges, and you’ll also swipe upwards to jump up on platforms.
Platform leaping is the essential gameplay mechanic, which you’ll do to keep up with that dastardly white rabbit, leaping through door after door.
The controls are solid, but I did notice that it was easy to accidentally step sideways when I meant to jump, something that became frustrating when it happened in tight spots.
While you’re moving forward and navigating jumps, you will need to avoid obstacles like sludge monsters, disappearing bricks, and flying bats, which can be a tricky prospect.
The game has five different chapters, and each one has a unique theme and clever obstacles to overcome. Rest assured, this game never gets boring.
At times, you will interact with objects around you, such as blocks that must be pushed into holes and balloons that carry you skyward.
As you play, you will want to collect the coins on each level, which you use to unlock new chapters in the game. As I mentioned, there are five worlds and 125 levels, so this is not a short game.
Gameplay wise, there’s a lot of variation between puzzles, though it does tend to be on the easy side. While this means that adults may not be challenged quite as much, it does make this a family oriented game that even kids can play.
Follow the Rabbit has bright, colorful graphics that look fantastic on the third generation iPad. It’s also got a great art style that’s super cute and fun to look at. Kids will love it!
What I liked: This game is great for the whole family, with fun puzzles and a cute theme.
What I didn’t like: Controls weren’t spot on, and I was hoping for a bit more difficulty in some of the later puzzles.
To buy or not to buy: Even though this ranges on the easy side, I’d still recommend picking it up. It’s perfect for kids, and still a lot of fun when you’re in the mood for some simple, casual gameplay.
