The Hunt for Fun Game Begins
When i want to check out a new game on my phone, I just launch Google Play and starting browsing. I might install a recommended game or dig a little deeper, but I don
T usually look at more than the app’s icon and maybe a few screenshots. I like to go into games as “blind” as possible, that way I can give it a fair assessment and potentially be surprised at how it is as a game.
Enter Banana Kong (Android, iOS), an Endless Runner with charming, colorful visuals and inviting gameplay. As far as free games go, this one balances gameplay with monetization very nicely. I never felt nagged to make purchases and in my experience, the ads didn’t bother me too much. I did pay 99 cents to remove the ads, but I did not at all feel forced or like I just couldn’t take another ad. I simply wanted to support the developers in a more active way. Seriously, these devs deserve a dollar from me!
Yup, It’s Fun
I’m not great at it or anything, but I did have a ton of fun playing for the video content (and beyond). There are tons of little “secret” areas and ways to explore with the endlessly generated level. Honestly, I’m only assuming it’s endless. Maybe there is an end, I certainly never reached it. Maybe it’s more of a race out of the jungle and the more bananas you grab and cool stuff you do along the way, the better your score. I guess that is the one disadvantage of going in blind, though.
The good news is, you don’t have to go in blind, it’s fun and worth checking out so why are you still reading this?
Until next time
