Our children haven’t got into Nickelodeon sitcom Game Shakers, but we’ve heard good things about it. Its latest spin-off mobile game looks fun too: Llama Llama Spit Spit.
The twist here is that the game is based on one from the actual TV show, which sees a group of children setting up their own games company. Very meta!
“The spit is on! Defeat hipster enemies as you collect coins, power-ups and crazy llama costumes,” explains its app store listing, with Llama Llama Spit Spit available for iPhone, iPad and Android devices at launch. “Swipe and spit to defeat enemies in this endless arcade shooter.”
It is a bit cheeky calling it an ‘endless arcade shooter’ though. Llama Llama Spit Spit looks a LOT like another game, Shooty Skies, which was released by the developer of children’s favourite Crossy Road. Shooty Skies has always described itself as an ‘endless arcade flier’.
The inspiration for Nickelodeon’s game is crystal clear, but at least they’re cribbing from a great game, we suppose. Game Shakers fans who haven’t played Shooty Skies (and even those who have, possibly) will find plenty to enjoy here.
