Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Wispin is a challenging family game with mild strategy and agility elements. Players change Wispin's color, then eliminate the Bloopers that match his color by running into them. If you run into a Blooper or other item that doesn't match Wispin's current color, Wispin gets hurt. When he is hurt three times, the game is over.
Clear levels to unlock new ones, and to unlock new ways to play. There are many special items to eliminate or collect. The "How to Play" section gives a good introduction to the gameplay. You can change many of the options, including setting a Color Blind Mode, which changes the usual red, green, and blue colors to yellow, a different green, and a different blue.
Players can see their friends' scores through Game Center, and see how they stack up against others in the rankings.
Is it any good?
Starting with the very useful interactive tutorial, WISPIN is an original take on clearing-the-screen type games. The basic concept of matching colors to the Bloopers that you need to eliminate is simple, but the gameplay is a challenge. The Bloopers constantly change direction, making it very hard, either by joystick or tilting the screen, to keep up with them. Players will get used to the game controls, though. One disadvantage of the joystick option is that your finger or thumb ends up blocking part of the screen. Since there are plenty of levels to unlock, the game will keep players' interest for a while.
