Cloud Girls has come along at exactly the right time to add to a burgeoning new gaming sub-genre. I have no idea what to call this sub-genre, mind you -suffice to say more and more games seem to be building their themes around it. It generally involves rotating some kind of object to match a steady stream of falling objects. Xbox Live gamers who enjoyed Roogoo will know what I'm talking about, and Cloud Girls has adapted the formula to better suit a 2D game on a much smaller screen.
After choosing which Cloud Girl you want to represent you, different coloured falling stars drop down the screen toward her cute head. Your job is to rotate the shield around the Cloud Girl to block the falling stars with the same coloured portion of the shield. Simple, but undoubtedly effective.
Previously, this unnamed sub-genre has generally involved 3D graphics, which had a habit of causing enough parallax errors to frustrate even the most sedate gamer, so Cloud Girls looks like its simplified formula could work a treat. Hit 'Track It!' now to catch any falling Cloud Girls news.
