"Endless" games are very in vogue at the moment, whether it be endless running, endless jumping or endless flapping, there are plenty of ways to get unlimited, and challenging gaming fixes. That doesn't mean that there aren't great new games being created in the genre, with Cosmic Cow being one such example.
In essence, Cosmic Cow combines two great styles of game play, one being a side scrolling endless-type game, and the other being the classic side scrolling space ship shooter, popularised in numerous incarnations on 8 and 16 bit consoles of decades past. As a "cosmic cow" (can't help but love it!), the player has to navigate through space, shooting or dodging asteroids and other attacking spaceships. The cow can collect a variety of objects to earn points - though mainly interesting foods that just happen to be floating through space. As points are accumulated, the player can also collect coins to spend on a variety of power ups or extra lives.
There's a lot to like about Cosmic Cow. The game looks great, taking full advantage of the Unity engine, and there is a great ambient soundtrack that keeps play interesting as waves in difficulty increase. The variety of characters and unlockable power-ups and gadgets also keeps things fresh on every new play through. Best of all, the game is free-to-play and quite generous with not forcing players into an in-game store to buy additional coins, etc. For those who want additional help, there are in-app-purchases available, where ads can be removes, extra coins purchases.
All in all, this is a great android app, well worth checking out! Cosmic Cow - try it today!
