iPhone Game Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com
Bunker Buster is a fun game that challenges your quick thinking skills as you blast away buildings. Offered for free in the App Store, this game features a continuous barrage of action during each round of gameplay.
Just like its name indicates, Bunker Buster, an app by Humanoid Mobile, is an app where you goal is simple: You must destroy the bunkers and other buildings before you’re destroyed yourself.
This is accomplished by bombing enemy turrets with your own drones before the turrets have the chance to take you down. High scores are kept in the app, letting you challenge yourself to beat your best each time you play.
When first starting out, figuring out how to best manage and utilize your resources takes a little time to get used to, but once you get the hang of things, the mission of Bunker Buster becomes much more manageable.
The in-game action is quick and simple to understand, making Bunker Buster an exciting little game to play.
However, long video-style advertisements in between rounds of gaming really kill your momentum and detract greatly from the overall enjoyability of the app.
Appearance and Layout:
Bunker Buster is a very simply designed app. While this simplicity is appealing to some extent, a bit more detail into the graphics of the game would definitely have been appreciated.
The graphics of Bunker Buster are reminiscent of an era in mobile gaming when non-detailed games were more common. Because of this, this game definitely feels more dated than it is.
The layout of this app is fine though; an easily understandable tools bar at the bottom of the screen keeps you informed of your playing options constantly, and a simply designed home screen leaves very little room for navigational confusion.
As indicated above, Bunker Buster is a free app. However there are a lot of in-app ads that appear in between games.
If they were just pop-up picture ads, then they wouldn’t be quite as disruptive, but as it stands, most of them are fairly long video ads. Because the ads are so long, it really makes it difficult to get into any rhythm of gameplay with Bunker Buster, and a player’s interest in the app definitely dwindles while these ads go on.
Bunker Buster requires iOS 7.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. A small expedited fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
