Review: Bunny Shooter

Bunny Shooter, free iPhone game, Angry Birds

Maybe it’s just me, but attacking cute, fluffy, pink rabbits on Bunny Shooter isn’t quite as gratifying as annihilating those patronising pigs on Angry Birds. It just makes me feel bad. They’re bunnies! But once I got past my self-righteous moral concerns and actually started popping some caps, one thing became very clear….

It was an hour later and I hadn’t mowed the lawn, I hadn’t emptied the dishwasher and I hadn’t fed the cats. I looked at the clock and thought, ‘5 more minutes and then I’ll do it’. Naturally I was still sitting there after a further half an hour, murdering adorable bunny rabbits. Occasionally I’d receive texts, but I didn’t have time to reply. Not now. I was busy.

If this game is anything apart from cruel, it’s addictive. The format of the game is very similar to Angry Birds. You are given a bow and arrow, and have to kill as many rabbits as possible with the fewest number of shots. At the end of each level, you get 3* if you’re a totally awesome rabbit killer, 2* if you’re an average rabbit killer and 1* if you’re, well… me. They make things a bit more exciting in the latter levels with the introduction of anvils and rocks which are precariously positioned directly above rabbits’ heads (seems a bit unfair if you ask me). But you can only fire an arrow at a rabbit so many times. Angry Birds has the added touch of having different types of birds to fire (some explode, others go fast, etc). If Bunny Shooter added this kind of functionality, I think they’d be onto a real winner. At the moment, the game just needs more flair to keep it interesting for longer than an hour.

The other downside to this game is that there are only 15 levels (oops, I stand corrected. Turns out there are 60 levels. My apologies). In comparison to Angry Birds, which has well over 100, this game is relatively short and won’t take you all day to complete. Then again, Angry Birds is a paid app whereas this one is free, so I suppose you get what you pay for. Although there is still hope for all you sadistic bunny murders out there, because those 15 levels are part of World 1. There are purportedly an additional 3 worlds being released soon in later update which hopefully will include some nice extra features to keep us all interested.

At the moment, I wouldn’t pay for this. It’s just too repetitive and feels like the whole Angry Birds idea has simply been ported over, replaced with bunnies and arrows, and given a new name. It’s a nice way to pass an hour, but until more functionality is added, I will be deleting this from my iPhone.

    Just a correction, this game offers 60 levels not 15 as you mentioned.

    By the way, there are 60 levels on Bunny Shooter, you just have to scroll the level screen in order to access them.

    And be aware that in the new world a great surprise is coming, let’s say that the game will be a winner (getting your own words 😉 )

    Heya, thanks for the review, Jack!
    Just one single correction, the game have 60 levels per World, please check again when you have time! :)
    In the later levels the difference with Angry Birds increase, since the puzzles gets trickier and you have to try different actions in different order to finish them all.

    Sorry about that guys – I have edited the article for you. Could I put forward the suggestion that the you make the level interface a bit clearer in the next update. It was probably a good idea I didn’t see all those extra levels though. I love my cats too much to let them starve to death.

    Anyway, once these next worlds are released I am pretty sure this will be up there with the likes of Angry Birds. Looking forward to seeing the new world in action.

    Great game. Very accurate ( except in a few places where planks of wood should have dealt out bunny death ). Can I have my Thursday back please ?

    Just a quick update – I’ve changed my score verdict from 3/5 to 4/5. I had no idea there were more than 15 levels so thank you again for pointing that out.

    60 levels? This game is short. It will not take all day to complete. 😉
