Bottle Cap Blitz (iOS) Game Review: Excellent Casual Gaming Fun on a Virtual Beach
I love beach holidays, and having lived in seaside towns all my life, the beach is never far from my place of residence. This is probably why I really like the backdrop of Big Pixel Studios’ latest iOS title, Bottle Cap Blitz, which is a beautifully rendered tropical island beach.
Players take on the role of a beach barman who has too much free time on his hands (what can I say….. beach life can be pretty idyllic), and the objective of the game is to flick bottle caps to break as many number of ice cubes in under a minute. You only need one hand to play the game.
It’s that simple but one key inclusion by the development team has made this entire premise an addictive one: Game Center online leaderboards. This plus the really simple gameplay, makes it easy for players to turn on a competitive streak to climb up the charts. I know it got me hooked from the get-go and at the point of writing I’m number 80-ish in the global leaderboard.
Helping the player gain more points are combos and power ups such as frozen cherries and watermelons; these are unlocked (including the ability to chain combos) as you hit new levels. Coins earned during the course of the game can be used to unlock new bottle caps, which is pretty cool if you are an avid bottle cap sharpshooter (the game is bound to turn you into one).
Considering that I had to pry myself from playing the game in order to write this review, it’s safe to say that Bottle Cap Blitz is a case of a casual game done right, with easy to understand and addictive gameplay, competitive elements and a beautiful interface. Nineoverten.com rates Bottle Cap Blitz at a 4.5 out of 5. Highly Recommended.
The game is available on the iTunes App Store for just USD 0.99. Check it out over here: https://itunes.apple.com/app/id569448523. A review code was provided to Nineoverten.com for the purpose of this review.Powered by Sidelines
