Simplicity isn't a bad thing, especially in the world of smartphone gaming. Too many titles get lost underneath complex control systems and overly clever mechanics, disappearing behind a cloud of frustration.
Of course, if you travel too far down the uncomplicated path, you're in danger of creating a game that isn't really a game at all, just some pretty pictures and a raw mechanic.
Everplay's Pinch Peeps just about swerves the potential pitfalls littered along the 'simple' road, but there's not enough meat on its bones to keep you interested for too long.
While it is a lot of fun to begin with, Pinch Peeps loses its spark pretty quickly, and a serious lack of content only adds to its problems
