How the game works As mentioned before, gameplay hinges on a water physics concept where you maneuver the lead character across an aqua backdrop in a course demarcated by blocked logs. Movement basically involves the use of tap-triggered ripples to generate motion in one direction or the other depending on the position of the wave.
Bombs also work in a similar fashion although they generate more thrust while ropes are also important tools that can be used to get past obstacles. Whilst doing all that, you are also required to collect fish in the field of play to replenish Beary’s dwindling energy levels as well as get to treasures guarded by menacing sharks.
If you kick the bucket, there is a revival option that lets you retrace Beary’s steps for a portion of your coins which you earn after successfully completing levels.
Why Beary is cut from a different cloth The controls are simple but commendably challenging to figure out generally relying on a trial and error approach that makes the game unpredictable and consequently fun. Plus, the interface is quite idyllic and picturesque with the visual appeal of the game being of the highest order.
Is it worth your time? With a unanimous 5/5 rating from reviews on GooglePlay Store so far, Beary is without a doubt doing everything right. Nothing but praise after praise crops up from those who’ve experienced the game first hand which goes a long way to show that it’s certainly one worthy of a place on your home screen.
