I recently downloaded Zynga’s Clay Jam. Wondering if it would compete with any of their very well known apps like FarmVille or CityVille, I just had to try it out! The animation is the biggest difference from other apps out there. Everything is made out of what looks like real clay! It’s very unusual compared to anything I’ve seen before. The story behind the gameplay is that you’re there to save the land of Clay Jam from the Bully Beasts who have taken over. You’ll help guide Fat Pebble as he rolls down hills of clay. Squashing monsters all the way down the hill, Fat Pebble will begin to grow bigger and bigger! Once you get to the bottom of the hill, you’ll meet the disgusting Bully Beasts! Just kidding! They aren’t really disgusting. They actually look like dogs, made out of clay.
Your main job in Clay Jam is to rebuild hills and make monsters to take back the land. Gameplay and controls are super easy to catch onto. You’ll use your finger to gouge lines in the ground and steer the pebble aiming at as many monsters as you can to grow your pebble as big as possible! When you get to the boost zone, give Fat Pebble a flick to give him a boost! You’ll also want to squash things smaller than you to collect the clay. The clay you collect will help you rebuild! Fling the Bully Beasts as far as you can by growling big and rolling fast. Make as many monsters as possible and rebuild all the hills you can to get the most clay! Although Clay Jam isn’t anything like Zynga’s famous build up games, it’s fun and very challenging!
iTunes lists Clay Jam’s features as such:
- EVERYTHING is made from real clay
- A unique ‘gouge’ control system
- Lots of peculiar characters to meet
- Squash, roll and bounce down the hills
- More than 20 hand-made monsters to find
- 5 amazingly strange hills to rebuild
- 5 fearsome Bully Beasts to defeat
- Brilliantly original music
- Fantastically funny sound effects
- Family-friendly weirdness
iTunes describes Clay Jam like so:
Save the land of Clay Jam from the fearsome Bully Beasts in this fun-packed action game. Guide Fat Pebble as he rolls down five weird and wonderful hills in a world made entirely from clay! Squash monsters on the way, and he’ll grow and grow and GROW! Get all the way to the bottom of the hill and meet the nasty Bully Beasts. Can you collect enough clay to free the monsters and save Clay Jam?! Please note that this game is free and you can play it without spending any money. If you want, though, you can buy extra clay through In App Purchases and save Clay Jam even sooner!
