It’s becoming easier to enjoy simplistic games on iOS these days, mostly because there are quite a few really good ones out there. And Wrassling has definitely earned a spot on that list.
You control your character with virtual buttons for left and right movement, jumping, and spinning your arm clockwise or counter-clockwise. The entire point of Wrassling is to stay in the ring as long as possible while also tossing other ‘wrasslers’ out. If you lose you simply try again, and your high score is determined by how many folks you can force out. However there’s a little more to it than that.
As you play you’re given simple objectives like tossing a certain number of wrasslers out of the ring or taking out a boss. Once you manage to pull these off you’ll earn hats that can be equipped from the menu. Hats don’t actually do anything other than look silly, and they tend to come off pretty quickly, but it’s nice to have some sort of goal to work towards.
Wrassling is extremely simple in its execution, even with the addition of goals and hats, but it’s also extremely fun in its silliness. It’s not the sort of game you’ll regularly sit down and play for hours at a time, and that’s okay. Instead it’s a fantastic game for you to enjoy in short bursts, often punctuated by fits of giggling or outright laughter.
