‘Pick them off using your carrot rifle, pelt their furry hides with your watermelon pip machine gun or wreak havoc with your runner bean laser. Want to destroy as many of their colony as possible? Your turnip mortar will do maximum splash damage.These crafty cottontails come in all shapes and sizes. Some of them can even fly, so you’ll need every weapon in your armoury to deal with this barbarous band of bitter bunnies. How they became evil, where they came from and who taught them to fly remains a mystery. But there’s no time to ponder these rabbit riddles, just grab your favourite weapon and…Blast ‘Em Bunnies!’
Blast ’em Bunnies, developed and published by Nnooo is a family survival shooter in which you defend yourself from waves of evil bunnies with many different weapons of your choice. Players have two modes to choose from: Survival, which is the main mode in the game where you must survive as long as possible on varying difficulties against endless waves of bunnies. Also, you have Slaughter; a timed gamemode where players have to defeat as many waves of bunnies as possible in 2 minutes, also on varying difficulties. Slaughter is also considerably harder compared to Survival, especially on harder difficulties.
As you play the game you will earn coins which can be spent on your bunny to upgrade either his weapons or things such as health. Unlike most games where you will only have the one main weapon you focus on upgrading, in Blast ’em Bunnies it pays off to upgrade all the weapons since equipped upgrades stay on weapons even if they are picked up from boxes mid-game so it can be a great help if you’ve got an upgraded weapon of each type so there is no massive weakness in what you are using, especially for harder difficulties.
As well as having the weapons as pick-ups you can also earn ‘Frenzy’ by taking out the golden bunny you might come across as you’re gunning the others down. Frenzy allows you a brief period of invincibility which can be extremely helpful in higher difficulties. There is also 2x Coin Multiplier which is self explanatory as well as Magnet, which sucks coins towards you automatically so you don’t have to shoot them to collect them. Weapons also have different types that have different effects, some more effective then others against different enemies and groups of them. To help you earn some extra coins and give you goals to meet you get Missions given to you as you play. 3 of these are constantly going and swap as you complete them but you also have a daily challenge that swaps 24 hours after completion; as you’d imagine the daily challenge is tougher but yields higher rewards than the others.
Enemies in the game are rather varied, with 8 different types trying to take you down. There is a boss enemy amongst these as well as enemies that fly, some use shields and others will run in zig-zags. One of the enemies; the Throat Slitter has baby bunnies that you must save (which act as collectables) with 32 to save. Now, while the game may not seem like a lot it is rather addicting and the achievements give you even more of a reason to come back to the game. Completionists will definitely spend a lot of time on the game.
