Cooks can get ingredients from all around the world, and in the case of Bloody Harry, he gets his ingredients the hard way. He hunts for vegetable zombies to add to his recipes, and that silly premise sets the stage for a new side scrolling shooter from FDG Entertainment. The game style is instantly reminiscent of Zombieville, as you simply blast everything in sight with various enemies, 15 different types of weapons, and an endless supply of levels. There are also a number of upgrades and missions to help increase your firing and melee attacks.
The entire game is too familiar for its own good making it feel awfully redundant from the outset. There are no nuances or distinguishers from other similar games, and there’s not much difference level to level. Most of the time you’re just going through the motions, and it’s especially disengaging if you have played a side scrolling shooter on iOS. Most of the elements beyond the repetitive gameplay are relatively bland as well with the entire game experience feeling like a new coat of paint on an existing game. This app is the definition of App Store clutter, that just clogs up the App Store with an uninspired clone of a previous high quality iOS game.
Bloody Harry ($0.99, Universal) is as putrid as eating zombie vegetables making it one to avoid at any cost.
