Mr. Muscle might be a simple distraction, but it’s a pretty well-made one.

Don’t let the impressive beach body or the far more impressive mustache fool you; Mr. Muscle is actually a featherweight. As a game, I mean. There’s nothing particularly feathery about the buff fellow holding goodness nows how many pounds of metal above his head.

Seriously though, I have to give credit to Flow Studio for Mr. Muscle’s presentation. If nothing else, it sports a very enjoyable and clean-looking art style. It’s also complimented by a simple but pleasant music loop that sound almost vaudevillian in nature. Fitting given the striped swimming trunks and massive handlebar mustache, I think.

Mr. Muscle is a straightforward one-tap game where the goal is to last as long as possible. Sound familiar? In this instance, a bar bounces back and forth across the screen - and by extension, across a dotted line. When you tap the screen, the moving bar will split across that dotted line and each section will be absorbed into the weight on their respective sides. If you tap in the center this isn’t really a problem, but if you aren’t careful you can thrown the titular weightlifter out of balance.

There’s technically no penalty for taking your time to tap, but the longer you wait the faster that moving bar is going to go. Of course it also speeds up with each successive tap, so no matter what you do things are going to get tough in a hurry.

Mr. Muscle won’t eat up hours of your time, but it’s a rather well-made distraction.
