Tappy Bulbs – App Review

I said ‘Tappy’, not Flappy.

This is not another Flappy Birds clone, rather, a brand new game with a cautionary twist.

I guess I should come at this app from two angles, given that the audience is somewhat varied. Firstly, Tappy Bulbs is a bit like Whack-a-mole, if ever you’ve played the popular rodent smashing past-time at your local carnival or arcade. Using one or all of your digits, you’re job is to tap out the light bulbs as they appear on screen. Once you’ve tapped out all the bulbs, on to the next screen you go.

In tapping out the bulbs you must make sure you avoid unlit bulbs, as these will eat into your time (you’re up against the clock you see). As you progress you will notice the addition of electric sockets, which if touched, will end your game sooner than you can say the word ‘electrolyte’. Avoid at all costs!

To spice things up, the bulbs continuously move around the board, making it very easy to tap out an unlit bulb. Coupled with an ever decreasing time allowance, this makes for a rushed and somewhat fraught affair!

Tappy Bulbs has all the qualities and characteristics of a successful Android game, and has been designed with a very high attention to detail. Graphics are slick and iconography wouldn’t look out of place on one of the more well known titles, such as ‘Cut the Rope’ or ‘Angry Birds’. Not a lot has been compromised in getting this app to market.

As a past-time for adults, game-play is somewhat limited. But then that leads me nicely into the educational value this game brings to the younger generation.

The opening sequence depicts a child who is angry at how everyone keeps leaving the lights on in his house (if only!). Here the app helps to raise awareness for energy wastage, which in my eyes can only be a good thing. Get ‘em while they’re young I say. Fingers in electric sockets, there’s lesson number two.

Tappy Bulbs has been designed by Texo Energy Saver and serves as an introduction to their Energy Saver App, which helps consumers save money on their energy. This app doesn’t shamefully sell to the user, nor does it litter the UI with inappropriate advertisements. Rather, it offers some addictive gaming while relaying important subliminal messaging about energy saving and also the dangers of playing with deadly sockets!

Not a bad app for the kids I say, available from Play Store here.
