Summary

Doodle God Evolution is a game where you mix elements together to make a new element which you then mix with others and so on and so on. It’s a very simple idea with even simpler controls. It does start off very cold however as you stumble your way through a series of button presses and guesswork. It looks and plays like a mobile game, buying timed hints makes an even stronger case for it to be a mobile game that has free to play mechanics within. I don’t hate the game and it is a game you could whack on and lose an hour or two and maybe get a quick Platinum trophy. I constantly found myself overthinking the matches and it grew frustrating so I just abused the hint system and brute-forced the rest. Doodle God is less of a game and more an interactive puzzle with bogus mobile phone antics.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
