What the Golf? is a comedy golf game that seeks to uproot the basic elements of golf as both a sport and game mechanic. It seek to completely turn golf on its head in order to make the sport quirky and fun because let's be real: golf is boring.

So, how did Triband take a concept as sleepy as golf and make it creative and funny? Well, it's pretty simple honestly: they just broke all the rules. 

What the Golf? Review: This is Fractal Golf

The beautiful thing about What the Golf?, and what makes its premise work so well, is that it plays extremely fast and loose with the concept of the IRL game. It starts with the basic idea of hitting a ball toward a hole, and it just keeps skewing the concept until you forget the game is even about golf. 

One minute you'll be playing golf with 50 balls, the next you'll be playing a first-person version of golf that transitions into a shooter. Next, you'll be transporting an archer with a portal gun in order to hit a target.

What the Golf? is like a box of golfball-shaped chocolates, and the fillings range from vanilla cream to toothpaste. From level to level, it's hilarious. 

The game even goes so far as to have levels that pay homage other games, such as SUPERHOT and Super Mario Bros.

The game's ever-changing variety and its comedy are what makes What the Golf? truly delightful. The core concept and gameplay elements are so simple that changes in controls and gameplay don't feel jarring. In conjunction with the generally low difficulty curve, this gives the game a wonderful sense of flow.

That's helpde by the smorgasbord of extra modes, including a daily challenge with global leaderboards, a "show a Friend" feature that lets you show off levels, connections to the game's Discord server, and streaming functions.

Each level has three different missions to complete, and completing all of them will reward you with a crown. If you unlock all of the crowns, you're able to unlock some of the game's secrets.   

These secrets and surprises continue on the game's top-down overworld that connects all of the different levels. Here, you explore a gigantic golfing laboratory as a golf ball and hunt for secrets and shortcuts between levels. The main campaign will last you several hours by just completing the main missions in each level, and with the extra modes, missions, and secrets, this game is honestly a bargain at $20.  

It is possible to get easily lost in this overworld if you haven't unlocked specific shortcuts, and a map would have maybe helped this, but such a gripe only applies when backtracking or looking for secrets. Outside of this, the game is only sometimes hampered by occasionally finicky controls — especially in its 2D sections — whether you're using a mouse or a controller.

What the Golf Review — The Bottom Line

 What the Football?

Pros:
  • Solid length and oodles of content at just $20
  • Consistently creative and fun
  • Easy to pick up and play
  • Very funny 
Cons:
  • Controls can be finicky at times
  • Navigation can be confusing, especially with secret hunting and backtracking

What the Golf? is a wonderful spin on one of the driest games out there, and it had me smiling bigger and bigger as I comfortably plowed through its surprisingly robust campaign.

Control issues can get irritating at times, and navigating the overworld isn't perfect, but these are merely a few dented clubs in a bag full of solid iron drivers. 

What the Golf? is available now for PC on the Epic Game Store, and will be coming to mobile platforms, Nintendo Switch, and Steam in the future.

7 Hilarious Mobile Games That Will Make You Laugh Out Loud https://www.gameskinny.com/u968w/7-hilarious-mobile-games-that-will-make-you-laugh-out-loud https://www.gameskinny.com/u968w/7-hilarious-mobile-games-that-will-make-you-laugh-out-loud Mon, 03 Apr 2017 08:00:01 -0400 Nick Lee

If you're ever on the go and don't mind mobile gaming, take the time to download these hilarious but also fun games to take a midday break every now and then. Most of these games are pretty time consuming, however, so don't say I didn't warn you.

Call of Doodie - Run to the Office Toilet in Time

Call of Doodie, toilet

Call of Duty fans will note the similarities and blatant differences for this game from the name along. Call of Doodie allows players to control stereotypical office place employees as they get the awkward urge to get to the bathroom.

The game also adds in bonus doors that may or may not be the bathroom you desire, but no spoilers on that one. After playing this game I can attest that going to the bathroom has never given me such anxiety while I also try to explain what I'm playing on my phone (which is a bonus game really)!

Available on: iOS / Google Play

The Battle Cats

battle cats, cats

If you like cats but always felt there was an element of war and fatality missing from their daily activities, have we got the game for you. As weird as the game may seem, it's actually quite simple as you choose which cat you wish to send into battle and you even get to fire a cat cannon! Frequent updates continue to add to the game so be sure to keep playing; can't say this is PETA approved however.

Available on: iOS / Android

The Simpsons: Tapped Out

the simpsons, tapped out

If you can imagine The Sims meets actively satirizing the game format of The Sims, you've got this game. Created by the minds of The Simpsons TV show, Tapped Out comments on the absurdity of the game and even calls out EA a few times.

My favorite quotes are from Homer who will regularly say things like "Work?! I thought this was a video game" and "Aw, I wish this was a shooter." Throughout the game as iconic characters and locations seen on the show are unlocked, more comedy ensues as you level up.

Available on: iOS / Android

Llama or Duck?!

llama or duck, quiz

The game, as simple as it may sound, provides near endless entertainment as you ponder simple questions with even more simple pictures provided. Hold no shame in answering this free quiz game as you click through. Just remember, however that there is no more to this game than what the title says so don't fool yourself into thinking there might be.

As I played this I started to question, is there something more in this picture of a llama that might make it resemble a duck? Or perhaps I needed to think about ducks on a metaphysical level, in which there are no wrong answers, to truly get this game. Either way I will never admit how much time was spent playing this.

Available on: iOS / Android

KleptoCats

 

This game is both simple and rewarding, and involves mischievous cats so what's not to love? Be advised feline owners, stray away from letting your pets get any ideas from this one. You're the owner of an apartment or home in which you go from owning items and cats. The cats don't seem to enjoy you owning the former however and take it upon themselves to mess things up. The game combines both cute and funny elements as there are plenty of cats willing to rob you blind.

Available on: iOS / Android

Clumsy Ninja

clumsy ninja, ninja

While fun, this game is no joke when it comes to difficulty as it can match the best of mobile games. You take the role of a mentor or parental figure who watches as your little ninja becomes a real warrior. The game offers challenges that keeps you involved in a mix of the cute and the funny.

Available On: iOS / Android

Dumb Ways to Scare

Dumb Ways to Scare, dumb ways to, dumb, scary, scare

Following after the lighthearted tone but often dark implications of Dumb Ways to Die, this game takes you into a monster's perspective to scare people. Can't say if he'll ever be satisfied, but how could you when life's a scream? The game keeps you entertained by the absurdity of just trying to scare people in the most home-video type of way to just down right evil deeds.

Available on: iOS

These seven games span the spectrum of satire to just plain slapstick in their comedic material as they provide something for each type of mobile gamer. What's more important than a quick laugh however is each games ability to provide varying levels of interactivity. For example, The Simpsons: Tapped Out provides linear, story based, game play while Call of Doodie can be opened quickly and played with no long term effects. Granted playing that last game could have long term effects on your office to bathroom use ratio that we don't have the analytics on yet.

The best of gaming April Fool's pranks 2016 https://www.gameskinny.com/hpibl/the-best-of-gaming-april-fools-pranks-2016 https://www.gameskinny.com/hpibl/the-best-of-gaming-april-fools-pranks-2016 Fri, 01 Apr 2016 12:08:40 -0400 Ty Arthur

Forget Christmas or Halloween or Mass Effect 3's release date: April Fools is the best day of the year!

You can't trust anything you see today, and there have been some amazing zingers already from across the world of gaming on this much-loved holiday (OK, not everybody is a fan...but frankly seeing the rage of those who fall for the pranks is a significant portion of the fun.).

If you've been hiding underneath the digital covers to avoid getting trolled, we've rounded up the best of the best in today's bout of tomfoolery.

The Hearthstone MMO

Blizzard has a long and hallowed tradition of pissing people off by announcing MMOs that aren't actually happening on April 1st (remember that Starcraft one that had the world enraged?).

This year we've hit some sort of universe-shattering recursive paradigm, however. Hearthstone – a CCG based on the World Of Warcraft MMO – is apparently getting its own MMO, so would that just be World Of Warcraft or did a whole new dimension just pop into existence? Like, woah.

 

Google's Cardboard Plastic

Forget the Oculus Rift, because Google just gave us the most completely immersive headset experience you can possibly get. Amazing 360 degree view field, perfect audio, and it works with ALL apps!

What's more real than actual reality? (Probably the Hearthstone MMO, which I'm convinced is now seeping into our universe and overtaking this reality).

Dark Souls III The Movie

If you thought that animated short from Eli Roth was all the Dark Souls movie action you were getting this week, boy were you wrong. As it turns out, Far Cry isn't the only franchise that can go VHS retro. We can only hope that, much like Blood Dragon, this actually ends up being a real thing one day.

The Rage Quit Bot

Are you tired of having to actually rage quit a match by yourself? I mean, you've already thrown your controller across the room or bashed your keyboard into your monitor, so why should you then have to go through all the trouble of actually clicking a button to leave the match?

Rocket League has got you covered, with a patented new Rage Quit Bot that does all the work for you!

Project Bread Winner

Known for crafting high quality peripherals, Razer is finally giving gamers a tool they really want: the first gaming-grade kitchen appliance, so you can spend more time at your computer! Have a slice of ownage in the morning with this desperately long-overdue piece of hardware.

Wubba-Lubba Dub Dub!

Can't get enough Pocket Mortys? It's time to upgrade the Plumbus in your home! Everybody's got a Plumbus, but I bet you bought 'em low quality by the dozen at the local big box store.

Thankfully, Think Geek has decided to craft only the highest quality artistan Plumbuses (Plumusi?), made only using extra-virgin schleem. Pick yours up right here today.

Eau De Combat

A new fragrance exclusively for you hardcore Arma players has finally arrived! A press release about this already sold-out new perfume proclaims:

“Offering an unapologetic blend of florals, with a touch of soft gunpowder aroma, topped off with fresh notes of wood, mosses, and dirt, Arma Eau De Combat captures the heat of the moment and boosts your chances of victory in the trenches of seduction.”

 

Black Desert Online Adds Butt Poses

Angry soccer moms on the Internet might make Blizzard back down, but developer Pearl Abyss is made of stronger stuff. All new “butt pose” victory animations are being added into Black Desert Online's Crimson Battlefield PvP mode this week.

This is exactly what gaming needs more of these days

The Witcher 3 – Roach

In an interview with CD Projekt Red's head of the Bug Creation department, we finally discover why Roach behaved as she did in The Witcher 3 – and what's in store for her in future expansions.

Smite's New-ish God, Manticore

Long thought deleted from the practice match, the Manticore returns to offer nothing of real value, except for this hilarious video featuring dueling announcers:

Chocogo App

This would seriously make a lot of dreams come true. Which chocobo would you ride to work, and how many greens would you tip it?




Corn Hub

We all know what you pervs do the second you're done reading GameSkinny, so we thought this minor change to the PornHub website would interest you...

Well, my weekend's ruined...

What was your favorite April Fool's gaming prank this year that should have made our list?

After taking a look at some of the most inspiring and unexpectedly thought-provoking quotes across gaming, we'd be remiss if we didn't head the opposite direction. There's plenty of major downers in any given storyline to offset those uplifting moments.

\n

Should it be any surprise that there's some truly cringe-worthy text and hilariously offensive quotes to be found in the zany, outlandish world of gaming? What's interesting is that in quite a few cases, the least inspiring quotes and the most inspiring quotes actually come from the same games.

\n

After trudging through a deluge of horrifying (and OK, frequently quite amusing) lines of dialog, we've found all the best of the worst on display in the following slides. Have fun in the filth, and don't forget to fill out the poll at the end to let us know your favorite!

Top 3 games of the new showering simulation trend (NSFW) https://www.gameskinny.com/v4qd5/top-3-games-of-the-new-showering-simulation-trend-nsfw https://www.gameskinny.com/v4qd5/top-3-games-of-the-new-showering-simulation-trend-nsfw Tue, 22 Sep 2015 08:34:31 -0400 Andrea Koenig

There are plenty of strange games out there, but it seems that the latest craze for some Indie developers is to create games involving nude men in showers.

Why? Sometimes to test mechanics, other times for some giggles. Overall, it's a strange gaming experience where fun is relative to the player.

Be warned that this content may be considered NSFW.

Shower With Your Dad Simulator 2015

Released September 2, 2015, this fast-paced shower game is a "matching game" and simulator.

To summarize, you are shown the three sets of fathers and sons, choose one to play as, and then you must play the slippery naked son as he rushes to his dad in a public shower, avoiding the other dads and wet puddles.

One could say it's useful in helping gamers with their reflexes, but overall it's a comedic game that gets the adrenaline pumping because you need to get that little guy to his dad as fast as possible.

Get it on Steam now for $0.99.

Rinse and Repeat

This is the latest edition to the genre, and is a first person game about helping out a fellow bro out in the shower after a workout. At least that's what it is at first glance.

Show up when he'll show up, right after class. Set multiple alarms on your phone, mark your calendar, clear your schedule. 

What is this terror? What is this ecstasy? What is it that fills you with this extraordinary excitement?... Boy, it's the promise of a workout.

It comes from the same guy who made games about going to third base with your car, sexy time booty spanking, and dick pics. Expect intimate situations, hilarity, and intricately rendered games.

Download it now for free here.

Towel Required

The trailer says it all: It's a game about throwing towels at a lot of naked old men. Not sexy in the least, but incredibly funny.

It works as a first-person shooter as you click on and throw towels at old men leaving the shower. Your shooting skills will send those towels straight around their bodies and covering up their old man goods.

This game comes with special useful items you need to collect to get the best time. Get more towels, stop time, and boost player speed. Just don't get stuck in a corner be grunted at to death by an army of naked old men.

You can download it for free here. Also available free for Android in the Google Play store.

Most can agree that anything done by Tim Schafer is a winner in any book. Brutal Legend is no exception. This third-person action-adventure game by Double Fine Productions and Electronic Arts for Xbox 360 and PS3; it's just plain fun.

\n

Tim Schafer was inspired to create the game from his own past musical experiences. The game features the character of Eddie Riggs, voiced by and modeled after Jack Black, a roadie who is transported to a fantasy world inspired by the artwork of heavy metal album covers. Eddie becomes the world's savior, leading the humans against a range of supernatural overlords using a battle axe, his Flying V guitar that can tap into the magical powers of the world, and a customizable hot rod.

\n

The game also features voices of real-life heavy metal musicians including Lemmy Kilmister, Rob Halford, Ozzy Osbourne and Lita Ford and other celebrities such as Tim Curry, as well as more than one hundred metal songs selected by Schafer for inclusion in the game. It's definitely worth playing for its humor and music love.

Team Fortress 2 is a team-based, multi-player FPS video game developed by Valve Corporation. It is a sequel to the original mod Team Fortress. It was first released as part of the video game compilation in The Orange Box for PC, Xbox 360, and then later on PS3.

\n

Team Fortress 2 focuses around two opposing teams, Reliable Excavation & Demolition (RED) and Builders League United (BLU) competing for a combat-based principal objective. These characters are hysterical in every way possible, which is why it makes it a must-play on my list. I'll only share a few.

\n
Characters and Classes:
\n
    \n
  • The Scout: a fast-talking, cocky, baseball fan and street runner from Boston, Massachusetts, who practiced running to "beat his maddog siblings to the fray."
  • \n
  • The Pyro: a mentally unstable pyromaniac of unknown origin or gender, completely clad in a fire-retardant suit and a voice-muffling gas mask.
  • \n
  • The Demoman: a black, one-eyed Scotsman who drinks heavily and hails from Ullapool, Scotland.
  • \n
  • The Heavy: a stereotypical Russian character originating from the USSR, heavy in both figure and accent. Obsessed and affectionate with his guns,  and he loves his enormous mini-gun that he affectionately refers to as "Sascha".
  • \n
  • The Medic: a German doctor from Stuttgart with little regard for the Hippocratic Oath, responsible for keeping his teammates alive. He keeps doves as pets, one of which is named Archimedes.
  • \n

Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge is an adventure game developed and published by LucasArts. It was the second game of the Monkey Island series, following The Secret of Monkey Island.

\n

The game centers on the wannabe pirate Guybrush Threepwood. After defeating ghost pirate LeChuck in The Secret of Monkey Island, little is known of what happened between Guybrush Threepwood and Elaine Marley. The sequel involves Guybrush's attempts to find the mysterious treasure of Big Whoop.

\n
Characters:
\n
    \n
  • Guybrush Threepwood: The protagonist, a "mighty pirate" and thrill-seeker
  • \n
  • Elaine Marley: Governess of Booty Island and Guybrush's love interest
  • \n
  • LeChuck: The antagonist, Guybrush's sworn enemy
  • \n
  • Largo LaGrande: LeChuck's old first mate whom Guybrush must overcome
  • \n
  • "Voodoo Lady": A mystical woman who assists Guybrush on his journey
  • \n
  • Wally B. Feed: An eccentric cartographer
  • \n
\n

A lot of the humor in this point-and-click adventure game are the lines, references, and music to many of the LucasArts films found throughout the entire game. They are well placed and in good fun.

I didn't know what to expect when I first heard about this game, but I'm glad I played it. Castle Crashers is a side-scrolling, beat 'em up game developed by The Behemoth and Microsoft Game Studios for Xbox 360, PC and PS3. The game is set in a fictional medieval universe in which a dark Wizard steals a mystical gem and captures several Princesses. Four Knights are charged by the King to rescue the Princesses, recover the jewel, and bring the Wizard to justice. Simple enough, right?

\n

This cartoon marvel is funny, and I mean it. The four Knights encounter several enemies along the way which include other Knights, multiple encounters with a cyclops, a giant "cat-fish," and alien invaders! You can also find animal companions for your character that assist you in battle, improve your character's attributes, or provide another special ability such as increased treasure earned from defeated foes. The game supports cooperative gameplay for up to four players, either locally or online.

\n

I highly recommend this game more than anything. The mini-games are just as fun. Don't let the cartoon look fool you though, since you are chopping off heads!

Bulletstorm is a first-person shooter game made by People Can Fly, Epic Games, and Electronic Arts for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC. The game is known for its sense of style and humor by rewarding players with points for performing increasingly insane and creative kills. Bulletstorm doesn't have competitive multi-player modes, but does have a cooperative online play as score attack modes.

\n

The game focuses on combat using firearms and melee attacks. There are various firearms available. The game places heavy emphasis on kicking enemies and using the energy leash. The game's unique features is the "skillshot" gameplay system. It rewards the player for killing opponents in the most creative and destructive ways possible. This can be from killing an enemy in mid-air, to pushing an enemy into a carnivorous plant, or executing an enemy after shooting him in the testicles.

\n

The more complicated or unusual the skillshot, the more points players acquire. The points are used to purchase weapons and upgrades. The weapons are unlocked at set points throughout the game, and after a weapon has been "re-armed" by purchasing it, a "charge shot" for the gun is unlocked at another set point. The humor is in the names the game comes up with for these skillshots and the lines said by the characters throughout the game.

Deadpool is an action comedy beat 'em up game based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name. The game is developed by High Moon Studios and published by Activision for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. Former Deadpool comic writer Daniel Way (one of my favorites) created the game's plot, and Nolan North voices Deadpool. The game is true to Deadpool's humor and to the comic series.

\n

As Deadpool progresses, new combos become available. The 'M' rated game breaks the fourth wall, and Deadpool verbally interacts with the player based on skill and progress. Deadpool is armed with both guns and swords. He can also access giant hammers, plasma guns, and a range of other alternatives. A small number of teleportation moves are possible as well. As he slowly falls apart while sustaining damage, players must avoid further damage in order to recover.

\n

The humor in this game is nothing short of what we expect from Deadpool and you won't be disappointed in that regard.

South Park: The Stick of Truth is an outrageous, hysterical RPG by Obsidian Entertainment in collaboration with South Park Digital Studios and released by Ubisoft for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.

\n

True to the American adult animated television series South Park: The Stick of Truth follows The New Kid, who has moved to into town and becomes involved in a role-play fantasy war involving humans, wizards, and elves, fighting for control of the all-powerful Stick of Truth. The game quickly escalates out of control, bringing them into conflict with aliens, Nazi zombies, and gnomes, threatening the entire town with destruction.

\n

The humans are led by Wizard King Cartman who make their home in the Kingdom of Kupa Keep (a makeshift camp built in Cartman's backyard). Among them are:

\n
    \n
  • Paladin Butters
  • \n
  • Thief Craig
  • \n
  • Cleric Token
  • \n
  • Clyde
  • \n
  • Tweek
  • \n
  • Kenny--who dresses as a princess
  • \n
\n

The humans' rivals are the Drow Elves, who live in the Elven Kingdom (Kyle's backyard) of King Kyle.

\n

Among them are:

\n
    \n
  • Warrior Stan
  • \n
  • Jimmy the Bard
  • \n
\n

The game also features all the classic South Park characters:

\n
    \n
  • Randy Marsh (Stan's father)
  • \n
  • Mr. Garrison
  • \n
  • Jesus
  • \n
  • Mr. Mackey
  • \n
  • Al Gore
  • \n
  • Mr. Slave
  • \n
  • Sentient turd Mr. Hankey
  • \n
  • Stan's Uncle Jimbo
  • \n
  • City Wok owner Tuong Lu Kim
  • \n
  • Terrance and Phillip
  • \n
  • Underpants Gnomes
  • \n
  • The Goth kids
  • \n
  • The Crab People
  • \n
  • Timmy
  • \n
  • Scott Malkinson
  • \n
  • Kevin Stoley
  • \n
\n

I promise this is a game for fans of South Park and doesn't leave any details of the show out. Everywhere are hidden memories from past episodes. This is NOT a game for kids. If you're looking to laugh your a$$ off, this is definitely the game for you.

The Portal series is a gem! Portal is a single-player first-person puzzle-platform video game developed by Valve Corporation. The game was released as a bundle package called The Orange Box for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3. Portal 2 is the sequel to the incredible Portal (2007) for PC, Mac, Xbox 360 and PS3 which allowed for co-op.

\n

The games are comprised of a series of puzzles that must be solved by teleporting the player's character and simple objects using the "Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device", a device that can create interspatial doorways between two flat planes. The player's character is named Chell, and she is challenged by an artificial intelligence named GLaDOS (Genetic Lifeform and Disk Operating System) to complete each puzzle in the Aperture Science Enrichment Center, using the portal gun with the promise of cake and counseling when all is completed. The game's unique physics allow momentum to be retained through portals, requiring creative use of the portals to maneuver through the test chambers.

\n

In Portal 2, players take on the role of Chell once again in the single-player campaign, as one of two robots--Atlas or P-body--in the cooperative campaign, or as a simple humanoid icon in community-developed puzzles. The game includes a two-player cooperative mode. Both player-characters are robots that can control separate portal guns and can use each other's portal. The color scheme is different for each character. One is blue and purple, the other orange and red.

\n

These games are at the top of any gamer's list when it comes to hardcore fun. GLaDOS is a character all her own with every sarcastic remark that makes you want to scream "BI$#%!" The other characters in Portal 2 are just as funny and when in co-op mode playing as Atlas and P-Body is quite amusing. These are a must-play to any list!

What can I say about the Borderlands series? Borderlands and Borderlands 2 are truly fantastic games and are among my favorites just from the characters alone. Thank you 2K for Claptrap!

\n

Borderlands and Borderlands 2 are both action RPG first-person shooter games by 2K Games and Gearbox Software for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. Each game centers around the player selecting one of four characters (Borderlands 2 gives us bonus characters) known as Vault Hunters, each having unique special skills and proficiencies with certain weapons.

\n
In Borderlands we meet:
\n
    \n
  • Mordecai the Hunter
  • \n
  • Roland the Soldier
  • \n
  • Lilith the Siren
  • \n
  • Brick (a Berserker)
  • \n
\n
In Borderlands 2 we meet:
\n
    \n
  • Axton the Commando
  • \n
  • Maya the Siren
  • \n
  • Salvador the Gunzerker
  • \n
  • Zer0 the Assassin
  • \n

  • \n
\n

Funny Bunny Adventures by JED Games: What if Pac-Man and the Easter Bunny Had a Kid in 2013? https://www.gameskinny.com/hx5zh/funny-bunny-adventures-by-jed-games-what-if-pacman-and-the-easter-bunny-had-a-kid-in-2013 https://www.gameskinny.com/hx5zh/funny-bunny-adventures-by-jed-games-what-if-pacman-and-the-easter-bunny-had-a-kid-in-2013 Sun, 31 Mar 2013 17:27:44 -0400 Ask Erin

A Bio Break Game for Easter Sunday

Congratulations to JED Games for being the first submission chosen from my call to independent iOS developers! And how appropriate for Easter Sunday to introduce you to Funny Bunny Adventures, an arcade-style game for both iPhone and iPad. This game is what would happen if Pac-Man grew some cute little bunny ears in full HD and teleported into the 21st century. Don't be fooled by the kid-friendly graphics. The game is not as trivial as it appears.

Like any good game, the basic idea can be stated simply: plant carrots in the empty garden slots and then harvest them. Easy, right? Now add a witch and a dachshund to dodge (that cute little dog is vicious - you've been warned), a cow to hide on top of, a rabbit hole to hide in, a teleporter for emergencies, vegetable-swapping mini-games, a cannon with tilt-control for the bonus round, alarm clock power ups, a leprechaun to interfere with your harvest... and that's just in the free levels!

Rich Detail Shows Better on the iPad

I'd give this game more like seven and a half stars on the iPad but six and a half on the iPhone, on which the screen is small enough that some of the instructions are difficult to read. Fortunately, the game play is relatively easy to pick up on, so even if you can't quite read everything you'll still get the hang of it. (Game tip: on the cannon bonus round the rabbit is controlled by tilting the device. It took me a round or two to figure that out.)

 

The early levels are simple enough, but the play rapidly morphs into genuine arcade action in which achieving the three-star timer on each level is challenging, to say the least. You can collect carrots to level your character in various ways, making the game easier, which is I'm sure how JED games hopes to make its money on the title, but of course you don't have to spend real money to see any of the free levels.

A Solid Title from an Independent iOS Developer

The game does not let you flip the device, forcing a button-on-the-right-side orientation, which is a bit of a pet peeve of mine, but I forgave them this minor detail because the game does have all the other basics that gamers have come to expect from a professionally-developed title, but which some smaller companies can overlook. You can toggle the sound on and off during play, you can pause the game right there on the screen without having to leave it, you can quit in the middle of a level and either restart it or return to the home screen, and of course there is an option to restore your purchases in case you ever delete the game and later re-install it.

If I could ask JED Games for an update the only change I would request at all is to make the instructions easier to read on my iPhone 4, but overall the graphics and game play are very well done, making this title a fun addition to any gamer's arsenal of free-download distractions. (Download tip: if you have a retina device, be sure to download the free HD version rather than the regular.) JED Games is an independent iOS developer working out of the Ukraine, with only two apps in the app store so far, so grab a free copy or download the full version of Funny Bunny Adventures and show them your support!
