From the developers of Felipe Femur and our User’s Choice Halloween contest winning app, Halloween Campfire Stories, comes a new Thanksgiving themed app. ZebraFox Games deliver another appetizing app, stuffed with delectable looking food, including turkey drumsticks, cranberry sauce, ham, pumpkin pie, and of course slippery green beans.
The game features a newly designed Gummy the toothless werewolf, a fan favorite from the original Felipe Femur app as well as from Halloween Campfire Stories app where he thrilled us with his tale of a cursed can opener. The developers seem to love tying all their games together, and this game is no exception. In fact, it goes above and beyond, utilizing not only the establish character of Gummy the werewolf, but also the evil dentist, Dr. Sweet Tooth. In the description of this one is the note about Gummy recovering from his ordeal with the evil Dr. Sweet Tooth, another of the companies games, and perhaps their most ambitious venture. The developers are essentially creating a ZebraFox Games universe, and we at App Apes love it! But the main point here is that Gummy appears cleaned up and lighter, and with his large appetite intact. The food is delicious looking, and the UI is beautifully rendered.
The game play is simple but challenging, and with two modes of play, plus a sort of food popping mini-game on the title screen, the game offers a cornucopia of fun. The main mode of play, Full Course, offers randomly generated courses and randomly selected prompted foods, so it’s always a mystery and a challenge. Vegetarians aren’t fully left out of this game, as with the second mode of play, Selective Eater, only green beans are eaten, and with only five seconds to clear each course it offers a unique challenge for a what-a-mole type game.
The randomization, and variety of game play increase the replay value significantly, and with the future addition of leadership boards, when the game has a bigger player base, promises to make the fun last even longer with the ability to challenge friends.
Overall, Gummy’s Thanksgiving Feast is a feast for the eyes, and a bounty of fun. Download for the Thanksgiving season, and use it anytime thereafter to satisfy your craving for fun.
Gummy the toothless werewolf is back with a big appetite, just in time for an all-you-can-eat Thanksgiving feast. He’s recovered from his trip to the evil dentist Dr. Sweet Tooth, now hungrier than ever… and with a king complex. He wants to be served. As his attendant for the night, you need to help Gummy satisfy his hunger by feeding him whatever he desires. Feed him as much Thanksgiving turkey, ham, green beans, pumpkin pie, cranberry sauce, and corn as you can in 60 seconds in the Full Course mode, or try out the Selective Eater mode and feed him only green beans, being sure to avoid tapping any meat, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie, or corn.
With leadership boards soon to come, players can challenge friends and see who can stuff Gummy with the most Thanksgiving food in 60 seconds, as well as who can click the most vegetarian friendly green beans without tapping any other plates of food.
How to Play: both the Full Course and Selective Eater modes feature 5X5 tabletop grids of food on plates. In the Full Course mode of play, players are encouraged to tap the prompted type of Thanksgiving food–turkey drumsticks, ham, green beans, pumpkin pie, cranberry sauce, or corn–as fast as they can in the 60 second time limit. Gummy the werewolf will prompt players on what he wants popped into his mouth with a speech bubble, and the food will wiggle. Selective Eater on the other hand offers the unique challenge of having to click only green beans. No time limit will be given, but the game will be over if any other type of Thanksgiving food is clicked or if each individual course is not cleared within ten seconds. There are other customers to attend to, after all. No lollygagging. Eat, or beat it. Retry again and again for a better, higher score.
