I think us guys never grow out of finding boogers funny. And let me get that out of the way right now Gesundheit is a game that has a lot of boogers in it. You may think that this is going to be game that is just going to throw snot at the screen to appeal to little boys, but you would be mistaken. Because Gesundheit is a very well put together and fun game………….. and it has boogers.

The whole presentation of this game is fan-freaking-tastic it looks like it was designed by a kid with some felt tip pens and on some cheap paper. As well as having this cool look to the game it also is animated very well.
The story of the game is very amusing and it is certainly sure to appeal to kids (and immature adults like myself) Gesundheit sees you playing the role of a little green pig (no relation to the ones from Angry Birds before you ask) Now this cute little fellow has a really tough life you see he has been shunned by his fellow pigs because he has really bad allergies that cause him to sneeze all the time. I must say this sounds a little harsh doesn’t it. Anyway it turns out that the fact that this little pig cannot stop sneezing is the only thing that can save him and his fellow pigs from a bunch of monsters.
Now I am sure you are thinking that the pig will sneeze his boogers onto the monsters to kill them. Well it is far more clever than that. You see these monsters like nothing more than to chow down on some pig snot.

The basic idea of the game play is that you need to trick these monsters to walking into there own deaths. You do this by laying down snot balls which they will run towards to eat. The problem is that they also want to eat you. This forces you to take a stealth approach to the game which is really cool. If you plan it wrong then chances are you are a done for.

There are different levels of snot for you to get. You can get more powerful snot by picking up a flower. Also grass can let you grapple hook to different places. The way that you shoot your snot is with a catapult and you just need to pull your finger back and let go. To move your little pig around the screen you just need to tap where you want him to go. The controls are perfect and whenever you die it is because of something you did, and not because of any control issues.

Getting rid of the monsters is only part of the game. If you really want a challenge then you will need to get the star fruits that are one each level. This is really tough. You see if you could just kill all the monsters then run and get the star fruit there would be no problem. But there are a few things that can get in your way. First of all the monsters can crush them if they run over them. And you can only pick these up when the monsters are alive. This makes it quite the challenge, but in a good fun way.

This is a great game and even if you are easily grossed out the fun and kid friendly art style makes it kind of cute. Well as cute as a monsters eating boogers can be.
