Review: Air Hockey! Fingertip Sports by Sea Lion Games

A radically different take is found in Air Hockey Fingertip Sports ($3) by Sea Lion Games, which transforms the table game into something much bigger. There’s a cheering crowd as audio, sampled voices, sharp sound effects, and substantially more graphical finesse. This version includes three difficulty levels and a two-player mode, plus large, easily handled mallets. But the size of the mallets and the puck relative to the table are too big, the physics engine is a little less accurate than Acceleroto’s, and the gameplay’s ultimately less satisfying, though considerably flashier. At a lower price, and with better-proportioned elements, this game would be as good of an air hockey title as we could imagine on the iPhone. iLounge Rating: B+.
