Remember those catchy yet misleading ads by some famous mobile games like Gardenscapes and Homescapes?They often show a character (mostly Austin) in a critical decision-making situation where players must tap an item that they think would aptly solve the problem. The ad is even accompanied with a caption “why is this game so hard?” to grab the attention of the players and convince them to download the game even though the game itself features entirely different gameplay. Luckily, someone finally turned these misleading ads to an actual real mobile game. Lion Studios, the same team behind other famous casual games like Slap Kings, Love Balls, and Draw In comes with a new game called “Save The Girl”.
As what the title of the game connotes, your main objective here is to literally save the girl. Similar to those misleading campaigns, you will be prompted to a critical situation where you need to decide which item is more appropriate to escape the scenario. The girl in this game will progress in different situations and you must help her decide wisely, otherwise, the game will come to a quick end and you have to start over. Save The Girl follows a very simple set of mechanics. As the game starts, the girl can be seen in a certain situation and the game will simply provide you with two or three items to choose from. Tap the item you think will solve the problem.
Here’s the tricky part, each level takes you to three consecutive stages and you must avoid mistakes at all costs. If you tapped the wrong item, you might have to start the same level back from the very beginning. You can, however, start from where you left off by watching a rewarded video. Although most of the featured items are relevant to the given situation, some of them will actually make no sense so you really have to trust your instinct. Try to analyze the scenario, observe all the small details, and think of the possible outcome before making your decision.
Hilarious and Addictive
Simple, fun, and surprisingly addictive. I guess this is how you can perfectly describe Save The Girl. The game is packed with many hilarious moments and it is not really surprising why those misleading ads are effectively grabbing the attention of many players. Although the game doesn’t follow any storyline you can still see how the girl’s situation will progress. You will be taken to different scenarios such as sinking ship, zombie outbreak, robbery, and many others. There are also recurring characters like the robber, bulldog, and zombies that will constantly chase you in the entire game.
Wrong answers often lead to hilarious outcomes. Since most of the time there are only two available options, replaying the same level will not be as tough because you will be given the same set of items. Therefore, if you have chosen a wrong item on your first item, the remaining item is obviously the correct choice. From time to time, you will encounter a third option. The item is often enclosed on a yellow box. This special item is a guaranteed solution but you have to watch an ad in exchange.
Decorate Your Home and Unlock More Skins
Interestingly, Save The Girl is more than just a decision-making game. It comes with many other interesting features that are absolutely worth exploring. The game allows you to decorate your virtual home. On the main page, simply tap the Room icon to access your virtual home. Currently, there are seven customizable items in the game including the Window, the wall, floor, the couch, lamp, coffee table, and floor mat. You can purchase new items using the gold coins you collected from each level. Normally, you earn 50 coins for each successful level but you can multiplay it more by watching rewarded videos.
Aside from decorating your virtual home, you can also customize your character by buying new skins. Some skins can be unlocked as you progress and they can be claimed by watching another ad. Head over to your main page and tap the Skin icon. There are three customizable items in this category; the dress, the hair, and the shoes. All items that you purchased will be permanently applied to your character.
Save The Girl is a simple yet fun and addictive casual game. It is nice to see how they managed to transform a misleading ad to a real and playable mobile game. If there is one notable downside of the game, it is probably the overwhelming number of ads that are being shown during and before each level. Some ads are even lengthier than the level itself. We understand that this is the developer’s way to earn revenue but hopefully they could adjust it and somehow lessen the frequency. Other than that, Save The Girl is an excellent time breaker game that you can confidently include on your mobile. Currently, the game is available for both Android and iOS devices and you can download this addictive game for free. Cheers!
