Cause of Death is another fantastic role-playing game from Electronic Arts similar to the tune of Surviving High School, a game that I reviewed some time ago. The big difference between the two is obviously the plot. Since I went crazy over Surviving High School, I immediately pounced upon Cause of Death without any second thoughts.
What do you get if you put a slingshot and a pig together? Pig Shot, that's what. It's an entertaining game for the iPhone and iPod Touch that doesn't require a whole of thinking but a whole lot of pig shooting. All that tumbling makes for one unfortunate and constantly dizzy pig. How far can you go before you bump into a rock or collide with a sheep that won't go easy on you once you do?
So what do a couple of gears and a hamster add up to? The sequel to the best-selling puzzle game for the iPhone and iPod Touch, that's what! I was able to download the game for my iPod Touch when it was still being offered for free at the iTunes App Store but didn't get around to playing it until early this afternoon. It's been two hours, I barely got any work done, but I'm still hooked.
