Planet Bash is an app developed by KillerKun, published by Big Read Planet and released on the Android and Steam platforms. The aim of the game is that you are a disgruntled moon orbiting this planet they’ve been really noisy, being just generally a pain in the backside and it’s time for vengeance. The game effectively puts you in the moonboots of a small, well, moon, intent on killing the inhabitants of its parent planet.
In Planet Bash you literally try to kill everybody that’s on there without being destroyed as well, so watch out for and try to avoid the missiles and laser beams coming at you from the surface. You can move left-right to get a combo/power up and when beaten down you can revive yourself by following set of QuickTime events. You can regain life, or power ups in the form of shields and Super speed, and it becomes very hard for the missiles or anything else to hit you. When you get an ultimate you can just literally become invulnerable and your moon goes absolutely mental.
The objective is to avoid all these attacks whilst also killing as many of the populous and attacking tanks as possible. At the end of the match you get to this screen here which basically summarizes your actions and you get to try again.
This is one of those little apps, you know, say you’re on the underground or the metro or anything like that, and basically you want to waste some time… and I mean that in a good way. I myself have kids and they would love to play this, just for the fact that it’s a bit of nonsensical fun and they can do it and that’s the main thing something that they could do. It’s very addictive and I’m finding that I keep wanting to beat my last score and I’m having an absolute blast with this!
For £3.99 ($4.99) it’s a brilliant little time waster, or even if you’ve got small children, something that they can get into that’s not too complicated and they can have a bit of fun with.
All-in-all, I like the retro graphics, I like the simple controls, the unobtrusive music that kind-of complements it, and the general gist is so simple it’s brilliant,and for £3.99 you really can’t complain.
