If you are up for a fun, challenging, and fast paced game, then you will want to check out Bucketz. The game is very unique is so many ways, check out our review to find out what makes this game so different.
The graphics in this game look very nice. The game just gets your attention, probably cause the game is very colorful. The game has all kinds of graphics, you will find tons of different objects, and of course some buckets .
The controls are very simple, all you really do is grab any object and drag it to any bucket. Sometimes you will just have to tap on an object to activate a power up. The gameplay is what makes this game unique and challenging at the same time. The game is all about balance. You will have buckets on every level, sometimes you have more buckets. The whole goal of the game, is to make sure your buckets are balanced. During the levels, you will see all kinds of random objects falling everywhere, you will have to grab them and dump them into a bucket. The challenging part comes when you have to make quick decisions, you will have to make sure you are putting stuff in all of the buckets so that they stay balanced.
Power ups are a very important part of the game, they will help you beat the levels. Some of the power ups include ballons, disco balls, umbrellas, bomb defuser, and more. For example, by tapping on a ballon, your buckets will automatically stay in balance for limited time. Umbrellas will protect your buckets from getting squished with bigger items. You will also have to be careful what you put in the buckets, bigger objects can only fit into bigger buckets. Throwing a big object into a small bucket, will only squish your bucket for a while, and that will prevent you from putting things inside of it. Enemies are other big part of the game, those purple guys in the screenshot will try to mess with you. In order to make them go away, you will have to tap on them twice. Bombs will also appear in the levels, if you tap on them, you will die instantly, so you really have to watch out for those.
The game features 5 worlds, and at the end of each world you will have to fight a boss. The boss fights are challenging, not only you will still have to worry about keeping your buckets balanced, but also you will have to beat the boss. You will also need a certain amount of stars in order to unlock the boss level. You can get up to 3 stars on each level. The number of stars are determined by the amount of items you put into the buckets, the more the better. At the end of each level, you also get a chance to grab coins. Coins will start falling everywhere, and you will want to collect as many as you can. However, some coins are bad, and if you catch them, you could potentially lose some coins.
There is a store where you can get your upgrades, and keep upgrading them. I do wish money would be easier to earn, cause the game is kind of challenging, so upgrades are definitely needed. There is a good variety of upgrades that you can unlock, so that is very nice. The backgrounds only change once you start a new world, but there is constantly new stuff that you discover throughout the game. It is interesting, how there is like a instructor in the game. In the beginning of each level the “teacher” explains what new power up you will discover and what it does. The game sure has character, the buckets talk sometimes and just seem to be funny.
Well there isn’t any specific story in the game, the main characters are the buckets. They need your help in order to keep them balanced, or they will fall.
There are a good amount of levels, not to mention the game gets challenging, so it can definitely take a while to beat the game. The replay value in the game is pretty good, and will keep you busy for a long time.
Bucketz is very unique and fun, however you probably need to be the right player for the game. I personally enjoyed it a lot, sometimes I just wish it was a bit easier. If you are looking for a different game, with nice graphics and challenging gameplay, then you must get this one. The game is $1.99 and a universal app.
