A simple question; how many of you know that Duck is a bird? Yeah we know that it doesn’t fly like others but remains on the surface of water most of the time. Let us introduce one of them, Dizzy who is sad and angry because she has lost her ducklings. The dozy duck is desperate to meet her children but unable to locate them. Would you help her? It’s simple. You just have to locate them and take the duck so that she can collect them all. But beware of the streams. They are running fast and you have to be quick enough to collect as many as you can.

Understood the concept? It belongs to the new iOS app; Doodle Ducks that has been developed by HotGen Ltd. Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, the app has been optimized for iPhone 5 and requires iOS 4.3 or later version. The app is an adventure game where you launch yourself as the duck in the middle of a strong stream to collect the ducklings while avoiding the obstacles. This is how the show goes on.

You may call yourself a ‘bird-catcher’ but it is lot more packed inside there. The journey consists of flipping from one stream to another, jumping over the obstacles and hiding under those bridges. With swipe controls, you can easily move your duck. Though the journey kicks-off at a slow paced stream, it eventually picks up pace and soon you’ll be finding it hard enough to survive. Remember that if you crash with any of the obstacles even once, all your ducklings are gone and your game as well. You can place them in a nest at the finishing point.

Sometimes, you don’t want the hardcore stuff rather some simple and cute things that blossom up your eyes. That’s why most of the teenagers watch cartoons and then later switch to the hardcore stuff. But I believe that they still want those animated movies that are nice, relaxing and that’s what the app delivers. With some cute ducky characters, the app has a lot of greenery elements and you’ll just love to take a tour. The graphics are nice and animations are good with fast motion elements.

While collecting the ducklings increases your score, it also calculates the distance you cover. The farther you go, the more points you earn. The Game Center of the app has an online leader board and achievements table. So you can compete with your friends and compare your score. Also, you can share your scores via Facebook & Twitter.

The app is available for free in the App Store. So, there might be many obstacles in your journey, there is none to stop you from downloading this game. It is like a stress-relief therapy to play this game. We recommend it to everyone. And don’t go with the child-themed characters, just try your hands on and you’ll know the difference.

Pros: simple yet addictive game play, stress-relieving graphics, fast motion elements, free.

Cons: limited game play and repetitive a bit.
