A few years ago when there were only a few games available to play on the iPhone, Ngmoco arrived on the app market with a quirky and enjoyable game called Rolondo. This game took advantage of the unique aspects of the iPhone (the touch screen and vibration sensors, for example) to create a game that offered a fantastic playing experience to young and old gamers alike. Another exciting addition of Ngmoco to the App Store is GodFinger All-Stars, a game that allows you the player to control your own planet full of people who will do everything you want them to.
The controls on the iPhone are fairly simple and intuitive; most people will not have a hard time figuring them out after playing for a few minutes. When you start the game, you are located in a barren wasteland with only one person in sight. If you give the person what he or she wants, you will turn them into someone who worships you. Once the conversion is completed, you can command the person (or people) to relax by fountains, work in the farms, or in general do whatever you can think of having them do. The people do grow tired over time and eventually need to get their energy levels restored by sitting beside fountains and lakes. You can build buildings (or rather, have them built) either from gold that you collect from people following you, or with points of awe that you can generate.
GodFinger All-Stars continues the trend made popular by Zynga of freemium apps, which means they are free to play without obligations — up to a point. Players are only given a minimum of points, gold, lives, etc and then need to pony up the cash if they want more. In Godfinger All-Stars, you can visit the in-game store to buy more stars and gold. Use the stars and gold for in-app purchases to wow your followers or buy extras to change their environment.
GodFinger All-Stars takes advantage of the local push notifications found on iPhone 4, which means you will be alerted when various tasks have been completed. The game has a feel of something you can pick up or put down as you like, depending on your levels of interest, which means you don’t need to invest several hours in the game each day to enjoy it.GodFinger All-Stars
