My name is Jane and I am a Monster Dash addict. See, thats how bad I am, I just wrote expert instead of addict and had to change it.
I blame it all on the Angry Birds mob really. If they’d kept the updates coming more often I wouldn’t have felt the need to look elsewhere for fun.
But now Barry Steakfries, my heart belongs to you. And no spell check, I do not mean Steak Fries.
So in case you don’t know what I’m talking about, Monster Dash is a game I downloaded on my Iphone. Basically Barry runs through different worlds shooting baby zombies, mini vampires and little dummies. And while he’s at it he has to jump over spikes and cliff edges and grab as many hearts and weapons as he can. And the further he goes the faster he gets and when you’ve gone about 5000 metres, he’s really got the pace cranked up and zombies and spikes are flying at you at a great rate.
And I always say to myself – this is the really, really, final, last game for today. But then one of two things happens. You either get a really low score and you just know you can’t finish on a bad score. Or you get a really high score thats so close to your personal best that you just know that if you have one more go you’ll beat it.
I realised I’d been playing it too much when my dreams started happening in fast forward. It was like the whole dream played out on a conveyor belt that kept getting faster.
And not only am I an addict, I’m a pusher as well. I’ve turned my three kids and my niece onto it as well. It wasn’t enough that I had to get them hooked on Angry Birds, now I’ve turned them into Barry Steakfries freaks as well.
Honestly it must be the best $ 1.19 I’ve ever spent in my life.
