Don’t you just love it when you refresh your iPad’s store “Top” category and scroll down to find something you’ve been iffy about buying but now it doesn’t matter because it’s free? Well, you can say that for To-Fu the Trials of Chi, a best of show in the App store since its debut last month. I guess this is what you get for continuously refreshing the App Store screen or downloading one of those “Free App” notifiers. Well before you continue reading, I highly suggest downloading it now before the limited time offer expires!
The cool thing is that after downloading To-Fu, you’re greeted with a refreshed app icon for both the retina and HD versions as well as entirely new levels compared to the trial version. You could say that this new version doesn’t even duplicate the old levels (save for one) we saw on the first release. This is because the latest version gives you an additional 10 extra trials and updates the game with in-app purchases for extra levels in the future.
To-Fu: The Trials of Chi is a frustratingly addicting game where you need to guide our sticky little soy bean curd from point A to point B without dying. And that’s the bare minimum. You are a sticky wad of tofu with a bandana. Your goal is to get to the finishing portal without dying. You accomplish this by stretching and flinging yourself to sticky surfaces whilst evading spikes and electricity. Different surfaces react differently to you — from bouncing wall trampolines, to portals, to hard wood and slippery glass surfaces.
There are two extra mechanics that the game adds: collecting blue “Chi” balls and finishing a level equal to or below the minimum number of moves. These mechanics are of course completely optional but they add entirely new dimensions to the game without having to force you to select a difficulty level. So, essentially you can really just fling To-Fu across the screen to get from A to B ignoring the balls and moves or you can be more hardcore by completing all objectives without dying.
