We tried really hard to like this app. The lava on the floor is very cool. The Mr. Diki tribal mask guide is very cool, and the brief tutorial at the beginning really rocked! However, this game really lacked the “fun” factor – all you have to do is climb over furniture to the treats and say “Nom”. Really? Also, there is no incentive to stay off the lava – walking around on it doesn’t do any harm. Interesting concept and loved the lava, but something is definitely lacking in order for this to be a game we’d keep coming back to again and again. Good start though.
For most of us, the scenario is all too familiar: You’re in the comfort of your home, when suddenly hot molten rock begins to flow through the living room. In this situation, what else can one do besides climb between safe points and collect floating ice cream treats?
Thankfully, the geniuses over at HoloFriends have created your one-stop training simulator to prepare you for just such an emergency. So, strap on your favorite HoloLens headset and let Mr. Diki guide you through some action-packed, ice-cream eating, lava-avoiding mayhem.
