Berzerk Ball 2 (iOS) Game Review: Geek Whacking at Its Best!
For all intents and purposes, Berzerk Studio’s iOS title, Berzerk Ball 2 is a much bigger game compared to its 2011 predecessor Berzerk Ball. So what did more than a year’s worth of development get us? The game, borrowing heavily from games such as Smack the Pingu, involves smacking geeks off a cliff to see how far can they fly.
Geeks are customizable this time, and from the looks of it, the character models seem to be channeling The Oatmeal. Players pick their geek-whacker from a crew of 7, each with different attributes and characteristics. Each geek-whacker’s attributes can be upgraded along with gear, thanks to an RPG-lite experience system built into the game. The further you manage to whack your geek, the more XP you get, along with more nuts (as in of the nuts and bolts variety), which act as the game’s currency.
XP increases your geek-whacker’s level (with each level you get an additional attribute point to spend) whereas nuts can be used to purchase new weapons, charms, all to upgrade your geek-whacker. The environment in which you do all the whacking has been improved over the original, with plenty of interesting wild animals and crazy structures (such as a cannon) that can help propel your geek even further, or stop him dead in his tracks.
The game’s signature quips from the geek are back in Berzerk Ball 2. The good-natured taunting is tongue-in-cheek, and will not make you mad enough to smash your iPad, but instead, it’ll just make you curious enough to see how far your can whack your geek. LOL. If you enjoyed Berzerk Ball, you would definitely enjoy Berzerk Ball 2 even more, and for newcomers, the gameplay is easy enough to pick up and play.
The game is available for free on the iTunes App Store with in-app purchases, but you do not need to pay to win :). Berzerk Ball 2 is better in every aspect compared to its original predecessor, and Nineoverten.com rates it at a 4.5 out of 5. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
