Probe the Humans is a bit cheesy yet very engaging game with lots of arcade-y flavor sprinkled on it. Here, you play the role of an alien and you must abduct as many humans (animals included) as possible. Steer clear of obstacles like fences, concrete structures, cars. Pick up coins and utilize power-ups to increase your life and gain more points. While the game is yet to be released for the BlackBerry Playbook, it packs the right amount of playability and you bet it is very challenging!
Probe the Humans features close encounters where you, as an extra-terrestrial being, have to snag animals and humans using your UFO light beam. The action sets off in a rustic environment where there are lots of animals and farmers to abduct. However, there are also cars, buildings, huts and fences that you must avoid. Your life regenerates at certain moments in the game, but it lessens each time you beam “non-targets” up and when you lose all of it, you and your ET vehicle crash to the ground.
Controls for this PlayBook game should be a walk in the park. Your light beam is activated for the whole duration of the mission and you automatically just hover thru the entire landscape, which means all you do is simply control the beam’s direction, brace for some homo sapien-and-animal abduction and you’re good to go!
We’re looking forward to this PlayBook release! Check out our video review:
