X-Factor mobile game – now you can fail to impress Simon Cowell on the bus
Who decided this was a good idea? Mobile games are almost always awful, and so is the X-factor, so putting them together multiplies the awfulness. No, worse, it squares the awfulness. No – that doesn’t even come close. I’d say it’s the veritable factorial of awful. Or, awful! as I should probably refer to it as.
Ahem. Away from mathematical diversions, this game features an “interactive role-play based experience”. You create a performer, and play a bunch of minigames including choreography, singing, “fan meeting”, “fashion dash” and “groove”. You then fight to win the competition and get a number one single.
If, and I pray that that’s a big if, you want to try it out yourself, then it’s available now across all major UK operators, including 3, Vodafone, Orange and T-Mobile, or by texting ‘fame’ to 80100. O2 users will be able to do the same from the 27th October.

Some mobile games are awful, but not as many as used to be. And there are plenty of great ones out there – try Playman Summer Games 3, Tetris Pop, Urban Attack, Peggle, Soul of Darkness, Chuzzle, Car Jack Streets, Real Football 2009, SolaRola…
Anyway, I think if you played some of the good ones, you’d like them.
I love Peggle on my PC, so no reason why I wouldn’t like it on my phone, too, I suppose.
I’m not really into sports/driving games. I decent RPG or strategy game would make me happy – do you have any recommendations along those lines?
I just seems like every mobile game out there is an awful tie-in with a TV show, or big IP like Star Wars. I understand they make those games because that’s what people buy, but there simply don’t seem to be any mobile games out there with more than an ounce of depth.
