Remember that old Snake game we all used to have in our mobile phones not so long ago? Ri-Li is based on the same idea, but presented in a much nicer way.
This game, which seems to be mainly addressed to children, challenges you to create the longest train ever by adding as many carriages as you can to a railway engine that follows a wooden track.
Easy as it sounds, things soon start to get complicated, especially when you carry so many carriages after you that it's hard to move around the track without hitting your own tail – which obviously ends the game.
The game features background music and sound effects that you can turn off if you find them a bit annoying, like I did. On the upside, graphics are very nice: high level of detail, colorful design and a cute cartoonish style that most kids will love.
Every time you manage to successfully gather all carriages, you're presented with a quiz question and then the next stage in the game. Ri-Li includes 50 levels, so your kids will be amused for quite a while.
Oh well, you can also play it if you want to, I won't tell anyone.
Ri-Li is the digital version of a very traditional pastime - wooden toy trains – with a Snake videogame twist.
