Review: Tappi Bear All in One 2

Fancy testing your reflexes? Tappi Bear All In One 2 definitely hands you this challenge. Also, if there was an award for "Cutest iPod Game", then Tappi Bear would win it, hands down. Originally released as separate games, Tappi Bear All In One 2 combines five of the series into one nifty little app. The five games to choose from are:

Tap Tap Spring 
Tap left and right on the iPod screen to a bear on a pogo stick up the screen via a series of platforms. Your score accumulates quicker if your bear picks up donuts during his epic bouncing, and if you manage to bounce him in a long succession without falling off a platform. 

Tap Tap Spring features a charming little bear in a familiar red and blue dungarees combo. Clearly a nod to Mario here. It may seem simple at first, but the higher you progress up the screen, the harder the challenge becomes. Platforms will begin to get smaller and more spaced out. 

Tappi Bubble
Tappi Bubble uses the familiar "match three colours" format seen in games such as Bust-A-Move. In this brief little game, players must shoot bubbles at the ones descending from the top of the screen. The bubbles can be cleared once three or more bubbles of the same colour have been connected.

This is one of the most enjoyable mini-games in the collection, and can definitely get very addictive. 

Rainbow Band
The frantic gameplay of Tappi Bear is truly demonstrated here. Players get to conduct an orchestra of colourful birds by tapping the numbers above their heads in the right order. Time quickly runs out during this game, and panic sets in when you soon realise that this is much harder than it first seemed. 

This is an enjoyable one if you have decent reflexes. To those who do not though, this may be a little too frustrating for the most part. Oh, but those little birds are damn cute though.

Tap Tap Kick
This game sees Tappi Bear attempting to prevent his football from hitting the ground. This is achieved by tapping the football to make sure it stays in the air. Like all the other games, donuts can be picked up for a few more bonus points too.

I found this to be one of the most enjoyable games in this collection. Yes, once again it's brief, but this is a tricky game to master as you progress through your keepy-uppy challenge. 

Donut Fever
If you've ever played one of the Mochi Game's "Papa's Pizzeria" or "Papa's Burgers" games, then the gameplay offered in Donut Fever should at least be somewhat familiar to you.

Donut Fever sees you serving up different donut shapes, with a choice of different toppings, and icing colours to host of sweet-tooth customers. Mess up on three donut orders, and it is game over. 

For the most part, Donut Fever is pretty simple, but it is quite easy to slip up on an order when you panic that the queue is getting longer, and more impatient. It's an easy game to get to grips with, and also a very enjoyable one too. 
Tappi Bear All In One 2 is an adorable collection that is definitely worth picking up. There may not be much to each of the games, but the level of re-playability comes from the cute visuals, and the addictive nature of the gameplay. 

The game adopts a series of Game Center achievements, as well as the ability to earn in-game cash to unlock a collection of cute wallpapers.
