Have you ever wanted to be featured in a game? I mean, have your own face in a game? That’s the idea behind Are You In Over Your Head?, a fast-paced tapping game that challenges you to keep your little bird or other characters from slamming into walls or deadly spikes.
It’s a cute premise, but try not to get carried away. After all, in Are You In Over Your Head?, the world quite literally revolves around you. I barely notice myself in the game, to be honest, because I’m too focused on trying to avoid the obstacles in my birdie’s path as the world moves faster and faster around.
The graphics are cutely reminiscent of my early days in video arcades and with the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. Controls couldn’t be easier, since there’s just one tap. The problem is, sometimes tapping is the wrong thing, and you have to time everything just right.
Are You In Over Your Head? also has great sounds. The effects are awesome, and the background music perfectly sets the tone for this rapid-fire tapping game. It’s addictive, especially when you know you’re at the center of it all.
Are You In Over Your Head? is available as a free download on the App Store, with in-app purchases to unlock new characters.
