FDG Entertainment’s Bobby Carrot Forever just landed on the App Store for $7.99. It’s something of a gutsy move to put out an iPhone game at that price these days, but from the few minutes we’ve played of this gorgeous overhead adventure so far, the cost seems justified.
In Bobby Carrot Forever, the plucky rabbit hero is on a worldwide search for the six mystical Golden Carrots. The gameplay is a fairly typical puzzle-platformer that is superficially similar to Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past, but far less combat oriented. We’re talking key-finding, box-pushing, hole-digging, switch-pulling, vine-growing, and conveyor belt-riding–all the stuff you used to do with a SNES controller, basically.
That’s not the half of why this game looks like it could be special, though. It’s the presentation! The animated graphics are extremely sharp and loaded with personality, and we are very impressed by the music as well. FDG clearly doubled down on this production to send it over and above the Bobby Carrot mobile games.
Word on the street is that there’s a good 10-15 hours of gameplay in this baby, so we’d better get our playthrough started ASAP.
