Locking your keys in your car. Watching Jersey Shore reruns. Spilling a pot of hot coffee on your crotch. We make mistakes as human beings, it is just what we do. In fact we are good at it. But one mistake you don’t have to make is playing Crazy Rambo. (Pure Playz to the rescue!)
I am very unsure about what the developers were thinking when they created this….atrocity. This game is not at all worth your time. Don’t waste your valuable phone storage on this game! I am telling you loud and clear, downloading a hundred pictures of cats sleeping, would be better than playing this game.
Upon opening up the game, (the play through was pretty unbearable) you will notice several different national flags. It is important (if for some reason you ignore this review and still play the game) that you select the English flag. (not that there is any commentary but instructions) After you do this you may select a “gun wielding”, no doubt steroid infused hero. Gameplay for the game is pretty simple, after selecting a difficulty and a character, you stand on a platform and shoot enemies that are trying to attack you. Let to many enemies attack you and you die. You are supposed to get points by killing enemies and collecting money that floats entirely to quickly. There. That’s it. I just explained the gameplay to you in one paragraph.
Controls to the game were suspect. I tapped an enemy several times and there wasn’t the slightest reaction. Jumping up to get the rewards never worked (and if it did you often times died) and the game crashed many times. The icing on the cake? The advertisements. I am not sure if there was process in which the ads were displayed on screen, but this game gets the “cake” for most annoying ad timing. Many times when an ad came up (it was a full screen pop up) the game froze. When it wasn’t frozen on screen, the “x” on the pop up screen was so far in the corner, that it is nearly impossible to close out the ads if you have a case on the phone. (most people do) Probably the worst offense of all, was the full screen ad that popped up in the middle of gameplay. No, the game doesn’t pause, you simply die if you are not quick enough to close it out.
This game….wow just….wow.
Overall: ****Disastrous Play****
Look if you have made mistakes before, that’s okay. I just want to help you avoid making more. And this would be a big one. This feels like one of those “cheap” run of the mill gimmick games. Developers hurt the gaming community when they put out games like this. Nothing screams cash grab louder than Crazy Rambo does. I would advise you to stay away. Some people just want to “watch the world burn”
Want a side scrolling hack and slash auto run game? Then we have an adventure for you! The devs. over at Adventure Moffee, have developed a fast paced gem with this one and we encourage everyone to check it out!
. When you think of auto run games you might think about games such as Temple Run or Subway Surfers (both great games in their own respects), however Colossus Escape (CE) combines those similar elements and adds a sword as well as lumbering foe’s that head straight toward you. Well, what do you do with the sword? Slash the onslaught, and stay focused enough to jump over obstacles so you don’t lose life, or get eaten by the Colossus, who is hot (see what we did there?) on your tail.(The Colossus is made out of lava) CE also contains swipe strategy to create a deeper dimension to the game. When crossing various checkpoints in the game you are given instructions such as swipe quickly this way, or tap repeatedly here (There are various mini games that really “spice” up the action). In doing so, you will defeat the mini monster or boss and proceed to the next level. Things such as shields, and power-ups can be looted in mid run and placed on an alter in front of you acting like a spell system, this makes your journey much easier.
Now there are things about the game that will make some players annoyed, such as the advertisements that pop up right after the title screen, or right after you die, don’t take that to mean they interfere with gameplay (mid run) at all because they don’t! They just interrupt a smooth process otherwise. However the devs. at CE were smart and do what I think the gaming community should do and offer an ad. free version of the game for $1.99 (Hooray!!!!! this makes us all happy) Another thing that might bother some is the initial tutorial didn’t explain much. I was caught off guard for a bit when the directions for the mini boss appeared for the first time, add to that you only have five opportunities and then you have to start over from scratch, didn’t seem appealing at all. But all was eventually forgiven once I started to get the hang of things.
Overall: ***Smart Play***
Download and try out this game! You will certainly be happy that you did. This game has beautiful 2D graphics, with great controls, and a fair amount of depth. Tac on the extra maps and characters that will be added soon as well as the leader-boards and you have a game that you will want to keep playing for a while.
