With Hungry Hungry Hippos, Hasbro has brought this classic board game to the iOS, While there have been other hippo games, none are as fun as this one. Not only that, but it is very colorful and plays smoothly, making it great for kids and the young at heart.
Hungry Hungry Hippos is a 3D version of the classic game wherein the hippos can be found around a pond, getting ready to chow on the bananas and mangoes in it. The iPhone and iPod versions have a 2 player option, so one is at the bottom and the other at the top, so you can play against each other. Or you can go for the single player mode and race vs. the clock.
The iPad version on the other hand allows you to play the traditional four player free for all. Both versions are very easy to play and it’s all about which hippo gets the most number of fruits, simple as that. Do keep in mind that there’s single player option in the Classic mode, and there are no online multiplayer, game stats or power ups either. It may not seem like there are a lot of features in the game, but it is a lot of fun.
For someone who’s played the classic board game before, it will be a lot of fun, not to mention brings back fond memories of childhood. Even if you have never played the board game before, Hungry Hungry Hippos is easy to pick up and you’ll definitely enjoy it, either playing alone or with your friends.
