Controls are responsive, good graphics, fun and hectic
Clunky enemies, rooms don’t have much personality
I’ve become exceedingly disenfranchised from mobile arcade because so many rely on the same crutches that every other game seems to have relied on it before it. Most don’t have an interesting premise or are about as shallow as a puddle. Super Smash the Office for Android isn’t the greatest arcade game, but I can definitely say it’s a lot more fun to play that most that come across my phone.
First off, the gameplay is just straight up fun. The game isn’t asking me to pull off crazily timed jumps or sink as many balls into a moving net as possible. It’s just asking me to go absolutely crazy and destroy an office with a baseball bat. In fact, it actually wants me to destroy as many offices as I can before this random wall catches up to me and puts a stop to my craziness.
The controls aren’t too bad, either. You can use a joystick to move around and you’ve got one button to attack stuff. Some desks are just that, but other desks have things like TNT that will do area of effect damage to the items surrounding it, so there is a bit of depth as far as what you want to target first. Plus there are enemies that are try to stop you, too, though I can’t say they’re too smart and I’m not exactly sure what they do to take you down because it seems to happen randomly. Sometimes they’d touch me and I’d go down but other times nothing would happen.
Super Smash the Office is a fun arcade game that doesn’t really take tons of skill to have fun with. The idea of going berserk on an office is also a ton of fun.
