Don’t Stop the Creeps by Tigrido is reminiscent of classic retro titles, combining classic elements with some modern trimmings. If you’ve played old mobile games before, the look and feel of Don’t Stop the Creeps will be very familiar, and if not it will serve as a good introduction to the genre. It’s simple, easy to pick and play, great for casual gamers.
The mechanics behind Don’t Stop the Creeps are as simple as it gets, but as you might expect it’s easy to pick up but difficult to master, typical of classic mobile video games. When you load the game you’ll see the Creeps at the top, small rectangular shapes with vague suggestions of a face. At the bottom of the screen are bars with spaces between each one.
If you tap the screen, the bars will shift and produce openings where they used to be. When the game starts the Creeps start to fall down in random directions, and you have to make sure they fall into the holes, so that means you need to anticipate where the Creeps will drop and move the bars accordingly.
If one of the Creeps hits a bar it’s game over so you need to be on your toes all the time. Graphics wise Don’t Stop the Creeps is a throwback to pixel games and the music is pretty good too. Overall, this is a great way to kill time, and it’s most suitable for those who are looking for a quick gaming fix.
