PostReview: Angry Bunnies: Colossal Carrot Crusade (Wii U eShop)

Bunnies and Foxes and Carrots... Oh My.


As a game becomes more popular, it will doubtlessly inspire a range of spin-offs and rip-offs to be developed solely in the name of profit. Luckily, for those of us who enjoy playing the same game countless times, Cypronia has stepped up to fill the Animal Flinging genre's void with Angry Bunnies: Colossal Carrot Crusade. While it is a simple port of the 3DS version, Angry Bunnies, it does nothing to differentiate itself from popular title Angry Birds, to the point where this begins to feel like a blatant rip-off in more than the name.

In Angry Bunnies: Colossal Carrot Crusade, you take control of multiple types of bunnies, and fling them into assorted stacks of pieces of wood, stone and ice, in order to successfuly destroy all of the Foxes. In an obvious nod to Angry Birds, you control different types of Bunnies, all of which have different special traits. One bunny is considered normal, though we use the term loosely as these spherical bunnies don't look anything less than abnormal, one flies faster, one drops explosive waste and the one type is a larger 'normal' bunny. A white bunny will also randomly fly around like a maniac in a futile attempt to knock anything over, which is often more useless than you'd think.


Across the five story modes, each consisting of 30 levels, you won't find anything you would actually expect to find, as there is no story to be found in Story Mode. Instead, you get different themed worlds to fling bunnies over, which is about all the variety you can expect to find. Each level also has some 'Colossal Carrots', which happen to look a lot like normal carrots, to collect as an optional bonus.

The game wouldn't be half as bad, even with all these issues, if the gameplay was close to as good as Angry Birds'. Whereas Angry Birds seemed inituitive, this game struggles with an awkward aiming system using the gamepad to aim, basically allowing for no offscreen play. The camera itself is one of the worst we've ever seen, in that it tries to focus in on everything on the screen at the same time. Often the camera is jumping around like a maniac trying to show everything, zoom in on the destruction and go back to the next Bunny to be launched- it's a mess.


Angry Bunnies: Colossal Carrot Crusade isn't exactly an easy game to recommend, with many cheaper and better versions of the same type of game available elsewhere there is no reason to buy this version unless you only own a Wii U. This is a shameless rip-off of Angry Birds, and with a price tag of $8.99 you'd be better off buying practically anything on the eShop.

2.5/10
