Title: Angry Bunnies: Colossal Carrot Crusade
System: Wii U (eShop)
Release date: 9/25/2014
The main game/story
This game is at it’s core, an angry birds clone. The main goal of each stage is to go and shoot your bunnies at the foxes, taking all of the carrots you can while defeating the foxes. It’s pretty self-explanatory and doesn’t do too much different, which ended up being a minor reason why this review was at the bottom of the review queue when I initially got the game.
Pretty bland to downright terrible. Menus look nice and the title screen has nice artwork, as well as the foxes and stage backgrounds, but the bunnies themselves look strange compared to the rest of the game, and overall just aren’t that nice to look at.
Music and sound effects:
The music is very forgettable, and the sound effects are as simple as they can be. They still do the job, though, despite the lack of variety.
As mentioned before, this is pretty much an angry birds clone, to the point even the title is similar to what it copies. You pump up and shoot the bunnies into the numerous structures in order to destroy the foxes and get your carrots back. Sometimes the different color main bunnies will have special abilities, but I didn’t find them to be that helpful. As long as you put enough power into your shots, you should be fine if you aim properly. There are a ton of levels to play in this game, so it doesn’t have any problems with the replay value, it’s just boring. Once you get used to the physics, you pretty much blaze through the stages one after another, and the only point in replaying them is for the online leaderboards. There’s honestly not much to explain here, except for the fact that “It’s a long puzzle game”.
In conclusion, Angry Bunnies for Wii U isn’t really a game that suffers from technical glitches or bad game design, it’s just a game that suffers from being quite repetitive to the point that it’s easy to get bored after a while. There are a lot of levels to keep you occupied if you decided to pick this up, but it’s a case of quantity over quality. However, believe it or not this is still way cheaper than Angry Birds Trilogy and Star Wars on the Wii U eShop, as those games are about $50 at the time of this review. Even the physical copies, while cheaper are still a bit more expensive than this game. However, regardless of if you are a fan of those kinds of games or not, I can really only recommend this if you just want more of the same, as it’s certainly not for everyone. I give Angry Bunnies Wii U a 5 out of 10
