Hunger Games: Girl On Fire

When Katniss Everdean goes hunting in the woods, genetically engineered wasps known as Tracker Jackers arrive to attack her.  In order to escape, Katniss must kill the bugs and make her way back to District 12.

Don’t be fooled, the game is only two levels long.  Basically, you have to shoot the bugs by pressing the screen at the right time.  The bugs will shoot at you and you have to dodge them at the right time.  It’s far more challenging than it sounds.  Hell, it took me two days to get past the first level.  You can even try to get the high score and post it on the board.  You’d just have to be a member of Game Center on your iPad or iPhone.  Oh, and don’t expect the game to get to the main part of the story.  Despite the title, the only way it applies to this game is as a metaphor, which is actually quite fitting.

This game is very addictive and quite fun, but it’s a little disappointing that there’s not more to it.  Then again, this game is just a teaser and it’s free, so don’t expect too much.  I give this game 4 out of 10.  I wish this was longer, but what can you say about a free app that’s only two levels long?
