When I was younger, I would sit next to my father as he watched James Bond movies. He never grew tired watching them. Even up to this day, I would see him rekindle with the old James Bond movies. Agent 007 have this magic that kept us lured with his films.
I wonder how it would be if the secret agent is a woman? How will she keep up with the challenges that cross her way? Will she be able have a smooth retreat like James Bond? Definitely! With Evelyn Salt, anything is possible and some were made even better.

was created in line with the plot of the movie. Salt needs to find a way to escape the agents and prove her innocence. If she fails, she will be captured by the enemies. Oddly, the app wasn’t designed the way I have expected it. The gameplay was beyond simple. Salt runs and punches the agents that try to stop her. If she can’t acquire a gun, she will automatically alter to the battle mode. In that mode, Salt needs to punch and kick the enemies to surpass them. Salt will also need to look after the health as it will be the identifier in lasting the game.
Up for a great escape?
The first time I have tried to play Salt, I was already disappointed. The game was monotonous, and it bore me just by playing the first 20 seconds. I can’t find any challenge in the game; it is too simple that even a 10 year old kid can play it without breaking a sweat. You only have the forward and backward controls to let Salt move to the direction you want, and one control button for shooting or kicking and punching the enemies. The power-ups are also acquired with no trouble, but they mostly last for seconds. In fact, those power-ups only provide a trifling help to Salt. The health boost only makes an exception but the guns only help defy a couple of enemies.
With the HD generation and apps that settles for the retina display of iOS devices, it’s strange that the Salt app didn’t go for that kind of fad. Salt integrate poor graphic display which is a downside apart from the tedious gameplay. The graphics could have saved the game from bad criticisms, but then it turned out to be one of its utmost failures.
