Buddy Bot app review: ensure sadness doesn't exist



Here's a robot that has a very special and unusual task assigned to him and he needs your help. The Buddy Bot app can be played on your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone and will have you helping Buddy Bot to rid the world of all the sadness so that only happiness exists. This is a retro adventure that unfolds over 36 levels, all of which offer their own excitement and challenges. Buddy Bot will be attempting to rid the sadness in the form of baked goods instead of weapons.

Immersive Action-Packed Gameplay

The Buddy Bot app packs a real punch as it is action-packed, uses retro graphics, has tons of "weapons" that can be upgraded, and you'll make your way through all kinds of levels and locations. You'll collect coins, unlock weapons, and there are vast amount of enemy types to take on. What this means for the player is that you’ve got plenty of action and challenges ahead of you. There is just so much to enjoy and uncover in this game you'll find it very hard to put down once you start. Even the soundtrack and graphics will have you tapping your feet to the rhythm.

This is a brand-new release so it doesn't have any updates at this time. Users already seem to be enjoying it, however, and have given it a perfect five star rating. Scrolling through the customer comments it is described as fun, challenging, and even hilarious thanks to the characters.

A World without Sadness

The story begins with Professor Pillbody who has managed to create a robot that goes by the name of Buddy Bot and he is able to rid the world of sadness. He does this by shooting and jumping his way through the challenges which can involve computer viruses, traffic jams, horrible haircuts, and crazy children's toys. Your weapons are always within reach thanks to the user-friendly menus and the app performs smooth at all times. You've got six different game worlds to make your way through and all of them are unique. Each one also has a boss that you'll need to head off against.

For an arcade-style game I have to say the graphics are pretty impressive and fun, so you certainly won't be left feeling disappointed. The sound effects are just as sleek, giving this one a very professional and polished look.
