Product: Dingle Dangle
Developer: Just Some Games
Format: iPhone, iPad
Genre: Arcade, Casual, Puzzle
Physics puzzles featuring cuddly creatures are getting to be as widespread on the App Store as violent shooters starring hordes of the undead. That level of saturation rarely leads to experiment or innovation, though, with games tending to cash in rather than expand on the craze.
Thankfully, while Dingle Dangle might have one of the worst names in the history of gaming, it's different enough from the raft of other games in the genre that it's actually worth some of your time. It's no classic, but it's no dud either.
Dangle of attack
The game is all about fishing for furry critters from the bay door of your floating pirate ship. You control your rope with a slider at the right of the screen, pushing a finger down to lengthen the line and pushing it up to shorten it.
It's not going to set the world alight with its brilliance, but Dingle Dangle offers a couple of hours of soft, harmless fun
