To Eat Love is a new Android game. It's supposed to be about driving, but it also features
a catching scene. In this scene you are a mouth catching hearts, clouds, and some more
ridiculous stuff, and also some food, like hot-dogs, hamburgers and tacos. Whatever you eat in this stage, will have an affect on the driving scene, this way, you might hallucinate,
the streets can get blurry, or the cars and other objects will swing from side to side. Your objective is to get home. The white bar on the right side of the screen serves as an indicator of how much is left for you to make it home. Eating crazy stuff will get you money, which serves the purpose of a health bar, when you crash while driving, you will lose money, depending on what you crash with. The food serves as either speed-ups, or brakes, which you can use to escape crashes. Getting a hold of the gas and brake is paramount to make it to the end of the game in history mode, or to reach a high score. At the top of the screen there are indicators of the money you have, the food items (which indicate how many times you can either accelerate or brake) and the score. The score on the lower part of the screen is the high score, or the previous high score if you've already beat it. You will start off with 3 credits, and to get more you can watch a video ad; it'll get you 2 more credits, unless you want to pay for 100 credits.
The game has both arcade mode and some kind of history mode. Both are similar, but in history mode you work to beat the game, and not just to beat the high score. In history mode you need to beat the driving level 6 times, 2 times with a compact car, 2 times in a motorcycle, and 2 times in a red Lamborghini. The compact car will be slow and steady, while the motorcycle is faster, but also smaller, so it is easier to avoid obstacles. The red Lamborghini is another story, it accelerates too fast, and it's size makes it difficult to avoid obstacles. I recommend saving your brakes and gas for this stage. Also the more you progress in the game, the more affected your psyque will be. If you beat the game in history mode you will be treated to the credits (very few lines) and a song, with voice and all.
The graphics are below average, where everything besides maybe the mouth seem lifeless.
This could be a nice break from all the games with over-vivid characters. At the driving scene there is a cyclist that gets run over leaving what I would call a bloody mess, except that the blood is black (censored), so it might as well be oil spilled by the vehicles.
The controls are responsive, even though I've always struggled when playing with touch controls. All you need is a little bit of practice to beat the game.
The game features 4 languages, English, Spanish, German and French, although there isn't much text to show. Also, if you don't like the music, there is an option to turn it off, leaving
only the sound effects. I recommend using this option and listening to your own playlist.
In history mode, the game starts easy enough so you can grasp the controls, but soon as the vehicle changes to the motorcycle, things get real.
Finally, I want to point out that I made the game for my nephew and niece. I wrote this review as an excercise. They like it but they find it difficult, being ages 12 and 7, and I myself have been able to beat it only once! I'm working on adding a tank and a humvee to the array of vehicles that you can control. This will come in an update in the following months.
