Rubber Tacos on Zynga.com: A fantastic experiment in buoyancy
The end result is a social game that, in keeping with current trends, truly challenges players' skills while looking nothing but gorgeous at the same time. Rubber Tacos sees a family of luchadores sent on a series of puzzling missions to retrieve their stolen chilies from a rogue pinata. And the back story is about as zany as the play hook.
As challenges grow more difficult with the addition of floating cacti and ropes that require twisting and stretching for that perfect bounce, the power-ups that each luchador holds come in handy. For instance, the grandfather luchador can eliminate cacti, while the mother luchador can magnetize the landing platform and so on. Each sound, character and power-up is infused with such character and charm that it's an absolute joy to simply click, drag, let go and watch the adorable action unfold.
But don't go and think that Rubber Tacos is one of those social games that will leave you waiting (or paying) just to enjoy it some more. Once players unlock the ability to create their own levels and play their fellow players' levels, Rubber Tacos immediately offers a nearly infinite amount of puzzles for players to tackle--none of which seem to cost energy to play.
Rubber Tacos is one of the weirdest, quirkiest social games you'll play this year. It just so happens that "weird and quirky" is often synonymous with "refreshing and exciting" in the games world. It's a trend that game makers would do well to bounce around some more.
