App Review: About Love, Hate and the other ones

About Love, Hate and the other ones is available for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch for $0.99. For this review I played it on the iPad. You can buy About Love, Hate and the other ones here!

About Love, Hate and the other ones (ALHATOO) is a strangely interesting game. The look and the sound give it a somewhat creepy feel. That's not a bad though; in fact, I liked it. Well except the voices of the two characters you play as are kind of annoying. I LOVE YOOOOUUUUUU!

The two characters in ALHATOO are Love and Evil. With these two creatures you must complete puzzles and reach the end target. What makes this game interesting is that you have to move other creatures around using Love and Evil. Love can bring a creature towards you, while Evil will push a creature away from you. Please check out the trailer below for a better understanding of how the game plays.

ALHATOO is a fun puzzle game that's a good time for your iPad, or iPhone. Sadly the app isn't universal, so you have to choose. It's only $0.99 so it's not the end of the world, but it would still be nice to have the game on both platforms. Besides that, the game is very solid and a fun puzzle experience.

The game controls well by selecting Love or Evil, and moving them around. There's no hint button, but there is an undo button. In most puzzle games it will limit the amount of undo button presses. In ALHATOO you can have all the undo button presses your heart desires! This is great for me because in these types of puzzle games I'm usually always having to restart. I do wish there was somewhat of a hint button because some of the levels are too tough for my inferior ape brain.

Final Say: If you're looking for a puzzle app that will give you a challenge then you've come to the right place. About Love, Hate and the other ones is a great deal for only $0.99, even if it's not universal. If you're not looking for a tough puzzle game, then look somewhere else. Though if you are, with sixty levels this game will keep you busy for around 2+ hours and you'll have a good puzzle experience.
