iDragPaper iPhone App Review.
Let me start off by saying I never really had the impulse to drag the toilet paper roll in one go, not even as a kid. iDragPaper for the iPhone starts you off on this presumption and even though it might lose a user or two, the game did end up in the Top Free Apps chart for last week.
iDragPaper doesn't involve any gross action of any kind, relying on one simple mechanism: swiping. All you have to do is clear the toilet paper roll at once in the best possible time. There's not much to it. As soon as you start the game, wait for the Go sign and then start swiping like a maniac up and down on the toilet paper roll you see on the screen until you see the Clear sign.
There's a timer that counts you off, but the addictive part (yes, unfortunately there is one) is discovering new techniques on how to swipe fastest. Sure enough, some will definitely say "hey, this is a nice game...for the first few minutes of it." And they might very well be right. On the other hand, I personally had a pinch of fun with how you can interact with it.
Discover How Different Techniques Get You A Better Time
If you get pass the rather useless point of it and the seemingly low replay value, then you can try out different techniques to see how you can improve your time. You can do long swipes up and down across the screen. You can do fast smaller pinches, but my all time favorite is using two fingers and kind of walking on the screen and swiping with both the index and the middle finger alternatively.
Different techniques will get you a different times, and you can qualify to the Top 10 (only locally on your own iPhone or iPod Touch). Walking on the screen got me the highest time (8.45 seconds), and 4 times out of 5 it was the better technique. But feel free to try your own and see how it turns out. Be sure to leave me a comment so I can test it out against my all time best. :)
There's an update to the paid version that sells for $0.99 that will allow you to challenge yourself on the Top Ten Online Leaderboard, rather than just your own iPhone. Either way, the bottom line is...sooner or later, your finger will go numb from all the swiping.
