Review: This game is just like PapiJump and PapiRiver.  It provides you with a good way to kill time and have fun while doing it.  In this Papi game you have to navigate Papi, who is perched on the top of a pole, to catch the falling hamburgers and avoid the falling spike balls.  You lose the game whenever you get hit with 4 spike balls or Papi falls down.  This game seems pretty basic but the way you move Papi makes it unique.  You slide your finger on the tan part of the screen and it moves Papi.  Think of it as if Papi is balancing on the stick and you need to keep him balanced.  If you want him to move fast you can let him fall to one side and then swipe across the screen fast so that he becomes balanced again.  The settings screen has the normal Papi option of turning up the sound.  You can also submit your highscore after you play a game, just like all the other Papi games.

Verdict: If you enjoy the other Papi games, you probably already have this downloaded, but if not pick it up.  It is a little more challenging than the other games which makes it more fun.

Papi River

Review: This app is for all you Papi Jump lovers.  Basically the goal is to guide Papi down a river while avoiding the walls which will slow him down.  When he gets pushed back behind the back end of the screen the game is over.  The movement in this game is controlled by the accelerometer and feels kind of weird at first because Papi seems to be affected by momentum and kind of slowly moves from side to side.  It takes a little getting used to but once you get comfortable it’s easy.  This game has the same layout as Papi Jump where there is a settings screen, game start screen, how to play screen and finally a more games screen.  The how to play and more games screen both lead to Safari links (but the developers added a link on the pages to return back to the game).  Once you start the game Papi starts being pushed down the river and once you die a screen comes up where you can submit your score and play again.  The settings screen is pretty simple with options to change your sound volume and calibrate your tilt sensor.

Verdict: Awesome game which is just as fun as Papi Jump once you get the hang of moving Papi around.
