Black Tie Adventure is a platform game that relies on a quirky story and off-kilter premise, but comes out being quite enjoyable in the end. The game begins with a wedding between two individuals being interrupted by an evil snake. The snake uses its long body to wrap around and steal the entire wedding party and the bride, leaving the groom to head out to save them all. The grooms weapon of choice… a sunflower. I personally would be packing an assault rifle, but a sunflower would definitely be in my top 3.

Levels are well designed and the graphics are well done. Each level consists of three present boxes that contain some of the wedding party, various snakes that need to be irradiated, and a number of hearts that need to be gathered to obtain a gold medal. There are 4 worlds with a total of 32 stages which provides a whole lot of game for not a lot of investment. Depending on your skill level in platform games, there is an easy mode to ensure everyone fully enjoys the game. With boss fights and detailed levels, there is plenty to enjoy in Black Tie Adventure.

7th Playground has created a winning platform game here, and even with the quirky storyline, this game shines as an enjoyable adventure. Compared to two plumbers who spit fire and save princesses against a giant reptile and his children, I guess Black Tie Adventure is downright believable. Black Tie Adventure is available on the app store for $2.99.
