No, not some terrible, inappropriate televised would you?/wouldn’t you? grilling by grubby ex-Sky Football presenter Richard Keys, but the return of Disney Pixar’s comic creations to the app domain. Smash it? You certainly will…
Yes, Buzz, Woody, the pig one and the annoying cowgirl are back on Android in a 3D physics-based adventure that’s – pleasingly – mostly about the harsh mistress that is gravity, as you’re challenged to knock stuff down with a variety of other stuff. Taking on the role of Buzz, using balls, balloons, rocket-assisted wotnots and some conveniently placed exploding presents, work out the best position, the strategic points to attack, and get your timing just right to demolish a range of ever more complex structures to send the aliens toppling with the least number of shots possible.
Naturally, being a Disney app, the graphics here are nothing less than pin-sharp and perfect, and the animation so on-the-money that this could well be another addition to the – let’s face it – superb Toy Story movie cannon, rather than just an app.
With some 60 levels of puzzles to solve across four episodes, there’s hours of physics fun to be had here, and with star ratings to rack up, plenty of replay value to be had too.
