Tug The Table

I already mentioned Tug The Table in my post about the 5 Best Unity Games of 2013 and decided to dedicate a full review to it now.

Due to the success of his other game called Wrestle Jump, I believe that Otto Ojala finally discovered the perfect formula to amuse his delighted gamers. Simplicity is probably one of the most effective ingredients that brought his games to fame and it seems like it works the same way with Tug The Table. It is generally a very simple yet frustratingly challenging and unarguably addictive game that will absolutely keep you away from being bored.

The concept of the game is inspired from Wrestle Jump and it also works the same way with Soccer Physics. Basically, it is a game that gives the classic Tug of War game a creative twist in which instead of using a rope, the players will be tugging a bulky table. Your main objective in this game is to be the first one to win five matches against your opponent. This can be done by successfully pulling off the table until the opposing player crosses your mark or the opposite zone.

What really fascinates me is the one-button-fighting system. You are entitled to control the player using one predefined button but the overall mobility of the character cannot be completely manipulated and that’s exactly where the challenge comes in. You must establish the perfect timing, leverage, angle and speed in order to win each round effectively. Unlike the traditional Tug of War game, Tug The Table is not about strength but will merely focus on speed and strategy.

It is also interesting to note that the appearance of the stage and the players themselves are changing dynamically each round. You’ll encounter big heads, slippery floors, bouncing balls, long legged and even a reversed stage. If the default computer generated opponent is not strong enough for you, you can always set the setting to a higher AI to add more challenge or better yet, you can freely invite someone to play this game in a two player battle to experience this wonderful game to the fullest!
