Barrel Toss App Review

0 Comment


The objective of the game is simple, knock the barrels out of the hangar by launching crates at them before the freight doors come crashing. It sounds easy, but when the game decides to mash things up a little by adding obstacles to block the way as well as lowering the number of crates you have, things start to get tricky.

To start off, the game places a varying amount of barrels near the hanger door. You are given a certain amount of crates to shoot at the barrels to topple them overboard before the doors close. The game ends if you run out of crates or if the door slams shut. Why you have to do so is not explained, but nevertheless the game provides good entertainment.

In essence, Barrel Toss is one of those “high score games” where your objective as the player is to accumulate as many points as possible. Graphics are delivered with what is reminiscent of early 3D games, with crude edges and slightly pixilated details. Controls consist of a directional pad and a shoot button, which are very simple to maneuver.

Points in the game can be accumulated to purchase additional weapons, so players are not limited to shooting mere crates. This brings an element of surprise to the game as the hidden weapons are not made known at all. Think of it as a lottery, but without knowing the prizes.

One negative aspect of the game would be that there is no limit to where your control pads can take you. You can move out of the hanger to the abyss beyond and continue trudging towards the nothingness and nothing will happen except maybe a few glitches.

But either way, as a free app, Barrel Roll is a must to download. Say goodbye to boringly long waits for the bus, or sluggish train rides.

Pros:

  • Easy controls.
  • Unlockable weapons.
  • Simple to learn and master.

Cons:

  • Prone to glitches.
