If you are reading this, I want to say this. This desire for money is getting out of hand, and you need to get it together. This is coming from a die-hard fan of Buddyman. I used to play Kick the buddy all the time, I had every single item unlocked and even played Buddyman run and Despicable Bear when it came out. Now this game returns, but I can tell it’s purpose is no longer to be a fun stress reliever like before. It’s new purpose is nothing more than profit. I never had a problem with ads. But it gets to the point where there are so many ads that it actually hinders the gameplay. Now there is an option to remove these Ads, but even then there are still multiple items locked behind a paywall of a subscription that costs around 8 dollars a week. That’s over a dollar a day for just a few in game perks. This means that just 2 months of this subscription is about the same price as a Triple A Game, which is ubsurd. There is no issue with making a game profitable, but this is taking it way too far. Playgendary, if you are reading this. Please stop. Don’t fall to corporate greed like so many companies do. Do every die-hard fan a favor and lower the ads significantly, reduce the price of the subscription, and al around make the game better for both the company and the consumer. Thank you.
The game its self is fun what little time you get to play it. This morning I turn on the app to play first thing ad a half minute later I knocked out the doll and low and behold the god forsaken present thing pops up and you can’t go around it so your forced to watch another add for a measly 50 game bucks I can make 100 bucks in 30 seconds on this game just by playing it. That present deal needs to go or the reward needs to be higher it takes days to save up for the better weapons yeah you can make 100 bucks or so a minute but you can’t do it consecutively for that gift bull and ads. The dummy dies far to quick and finally but not least you can’t pay cash for at least half the weapons guess what you have to do watch upto 20 ads for some of them. My guess is you’d have to save the money for at least a month between ads, the dummy tapping out and just asinine problems. I keep playing for two reasons in hopes you’ll change the app and because it’s something to do while my real game is collecting cash for me bolder of destruction is epic. This game could be if you’d only do two or three ads per hour of game play and bring down prices and maybe not allow the dummy to die so quick. My recommendation is to not download this app if you don’t have patience and the worst part is the app doesn’t fix its self in the back ground no these ads pause the whole game so when you get back your still waiting on the dummy to respawn. That’s about all thanks.
Back in 2014, I had this game and kept it for quite a while. I very much enjoyed it and consider it an App Store classic. Since then, I have had a hard time finding it on the App Store. Seeing an ad on my device for it I decided, ”Why not?” I then promptly set it up on my device and played as usual. After a while, I noticed some differences. A few years ago, ads in this game we're occasional and few. Roughly ten seconds into the game the player is bombarded with ads to the point it inhibits gameplay. Features that were available years ago are now restricted by compounded video ads that can compile up to ten ads at a time. Another major difference is the VIP mode which is pushed on the consumer relentlessly and the use of the more exclusive currency to play the game properly. This ”special” mode includes many things that were available to the player years ago. Prices for all things requiring USD are drastically inflated. This push to seduce the consumer to pay for the game experience is shameful. All of these ads are ensuring that you, the consumer, buy another game so these developers get more money for ads. Also, these developers allow political ads for associations and corporations that have a feeling of propaganda. As a person who personally feels highly susceptible to advertising, I am truly disguised. I can now no longer recommend this game to anyone.
Alright. I loved Kick The Buddy and was kind of upset when it was taken off the App Store. When I saw this, I was a little skeptical because I knew it wouldn’t be like what it used to, as most popular games nowadays have super over the top advertisements (I know I sound like a hipster but it’s true.). I decided to download it after a while, and there are some major flaws right off the bat. First, the most obvious one, there are TOO MANY ADS! I don’t usually mind advertising, but if there was a city of ads, this would be it. The worst part is that after each ad, the game gets all disoriented and half the screen is blocked because it’s shuffled halfway to the left. Second off is the crashes. Sometimes the game just crashes for no reason. When I do get to play the game, I genuinely enjoy it, but these flaws tend to take up 90% of the time I spend in the game. Overall, I’d recommend the game, but just be prepared for these few things. Also, I know it can take a little while to fix, but I think that they should at least attempt to suppress these issues. Thanks for reading! EDIT: I also find the membership thing very annoying. It’s ridiculously priced and you can’t play most of the game without it, so the game might as well be $20 or so.
I thought this would be kind of entertaining at first, and it might actually be a really cool game, but only if you are willing to spend either a lot of money on a ridiculous subscription system, or sacrifice a lot of time watching videos of 30 seconds each. I understand that developers need to win some money, and this is usually OK with me, nevertheless this is way too much. If you don’t want to spend money (just as me) then you will have to watch a series of videos to unlock a few things to use; depending on the “quality” of the item, they ask you to see certain amount of ads (there were some items that required me to see 20 videos to unlock). Ok, I was willing to accept that, when I found out the app has a limit of videos you can see to unlock stuff, and when you reach it, you have to wait a couple hours to unlock more videos. I mean, you have to wait to be able to see advertisement. That’s ridiculous! I’ve already deleted it. You literally spend more time watching videos than actually playing the game. On the bright side, you can say this is entertaining and definitively funny, but this flaws I mentioned kind of ruined the experience. In other words it’s a pay-to-enjoy kind of game. I barely rate something, but I thought this was worth my opinion, hope it might be useful to someone.
