I am pretty sure that as soon as you read the title for this game you have an idea of what exactly is in store for you. I am sure that many people will just assume that all Oreo: Twist, Lick Dunk is going to be is nothing more than some advertisement that is wrapped up in an App. Well yes I guess I would have to say that is what it is, but does that automatically mean that it is terrible?

The game looks fine – I mean sure it is not going to win any awards or anything like that, but as soon as that  first batch of cookies comes onto your iPad or whatever you are playing this on there is no mistake that they are Oreo’s. Who really does not like Oreo’s? I think there actually is some legal requirement that says you must love Oreo’s. Ok back on topic. There are a few different kinds of Oreo’s for you to play with – I am sure your favourite will be there (double chocolate for me!!!) so yeah it does look basic, but it certainly gets the job done. In truth when you consider that this is really all about advertising the game looks much better than you would think something like this would.

So how does this advertisement….. sorry I mean game actually play? Well if I had to sum up the game play of Oreo: Twist, Lick, Dunk in one word it would be this: Fruit Ninja. Wait that is two words, but anyway you get the idea.

When a round starts Oreo’s will fly onto the screen you need to swipe them all. This first swipe is what is called the Twist. After this you will need to swipe the Oreo’s again and this is what is called the Lick. After you have done “the Lick” the Oreo’s will sort of join together and you will need to dunk them into the milk. That is all there is to the game play so you may want to make peace with that right now. It is kind of satisfying to do this, but it really does make you crave Oreo cookies so I guess you could say right away that this game does what it aims to do, and that is make you want Oreo cookies.

Of course a game like this is all about getting high score, but there is something else that makes you want to keep on playing. And that is you can unlock more Oreo’s to play with. What I loved about this was how you would also get some background information on the particular kinds of Oreo’s, such as when they were first released.

In all this is a very simple game and it does what it sets out to do: advertise Oreo’s. It is fun for a little while and if you love Oreo’s like most of us do I am sure you will get a kick out of it for ten minutes or so.
