Review: MooJooce (iPhone)

3 mins read

According to Wikipedia: Cattle (colloquially cows) are the most common type of large domesticated ungulates. They are a prominent modern member of the subfamily Bovinae, are the most widespread species of the genus Bos, and are most commonly classified collectively as Bos primigenius. Cattle are raised as livestock for meat (beef and veal), as dairy animals for milk and other dairy products, and as draft animals (pulling carts, plows and the like). Other products include leather and dung for manure or fuel. In some countries, such as India, cattle are sacred. It is estimated that there are 1.3 billion cattle in the world today. In 2009, cattle became the first livestock animal to have its genome mapped.

I have no idea how accurate any of that is, but I needed to fill the review up with something because once I get to actually reviewing MooJooce, it’s only going to take a paragraph or two.


MooJooce is pretty good. There’s a conveyer belt, and milk caps travel down it. You need to line the right colour of milk bottle with the right colour of milk cap. The conveyer belt gets faster and faster, making reflexes more and more important.

The game only starts to get challenging around level 10, and getting to that point is pretty dull. There are unlockable difficulty levels to deal with that, though.

The visuals are cute, although there’s only really one picture, and two moving elements (the milk caps and the bottles). The sound effects get grating after a while.

And I’m done. For a figurative penny, you get a game that’s going to last you a half hour, and you might come back to once a month or so. You can get this kind of stuff for free elsewhere, but this way you’re supporting a small developer.

And did you know? Cattle have one stomach with four compartments. They are the rumen, reticulum, omasum, and abomasum, with the rumen being the largest compartment. The reticulum, the smallest compartment, is known as the ‘honeycomb.’ Cattle sometimes consume metal objects which are deposited in the reticulum and irritation from the metal objects causes hardware disease. The omasum’s main function is to absorb water and nutrients from the digestible feed. The omasum is known as the ‘many plies.’ The abomasum is like the human stomach; this is why it is known as the ‘true stomach.’
