Bullistic Review

By , on January 27, 2011


Bullistic
Download on the AppStore
3 out of 5

PROS

  • Simple, mindless fun; more about the mayhem instead of finesse.
  • Interesting art and interface design.
  • Game Center integration for high scores and achievements.

CONS

  • Poor aiming controls.
  • Sound bugs; grinding sound-clip just cuts in and seems to forget to stop.

VERDICT

Like most free titles, Bullistic is worth it for the couple of minutes of enjoyment it gives, but without more substance added to the mix it'll quickly be forgotten.

It takes a lot of guts to put your money where your mouth is in an attempt to reinvent the wheel, but Millepede Creative Development have taken up the challenge with their animal-flinging title Bullistic.

Players are given a large slingshot; a bunch of bulls; and a target of five various shops, filled to the brim with the finest in pottery goods ('China' if you will). It's not hard to see what this equation is meant to add up to and after flinging a handful of bulls in to the shop, terrorizing the owner and damaging what you can, you're given a score represented in the cost of the damage performed.

A lot of time has gone in to the presentation of such a simple concept, including the simple touch of throwing out a grinding background soundtrack once you've started your violent rampage, but after only a few attempts at playing the game you realize you've been given what you paid for. That is to say, not much at all. While bashing through a building with a bull is fun the first time around, the ability to precisely aim isn't given at all (in fact it's far too easy to completely overshoot for most angles you set) and audio bugs turn poor shots in to an ear-splitting waste of time.

A *lot* more is planned to be added through updates in the future, including the removal of adverts (likely through in-app purchasing) and it's possible that these additional features will turn a time-waster in to a genuinely interesting title, but for now it's only worth grabbing for the few minutes of amusement it provides and little else.
