The game its self is fun what little time you get to play it. This morning I turn on the app to play first thing ad a half minute later I knocked out the doll and low and behold the god forsaken present thing pops up and you can’t go around it so your forced to watch another add for a measly 50 game bucks I can make 100 bucks in 30 seconds on this game just by playing it. That present deal needs to go or the reward needs to be higher it takes days to save up for the better weapons yeah you can make 100 bucks or so a minute but you can’t do it consecutively for that gift bull and ads. The dummy dies far to quick and finally but not least you can’t pay cash for at least half the weapons guess what you have to do watch upto 20 ads for some of them. My guess is you’d have to save the money for at least a month between ads, the dummy tapping out and just asinine problems. I keep playing for two reasons in hopes you’ll change the app and because it’s something to do while my real game is collecting cash for me bolder of destruction is epic. This game could be if you’d only do two or three ads per hour of game play and bring down prices and maybe not allow the dummy to die so quick. My recommendation is to not download this app if you don’t have patience and the worst part is the app doesn’t fix its self in the back ground no these ads pause the whole game so when you get back your still waiting on the dummy to respawn. That’s about all thanks.
Drowning in ads
Back in 2014, I had this game and kept it for quite a while. I very much enjoyed it and consider it an App Store classic. Since then, I have had a hard time finding it on the App Store. Seeing an ad on my device for it I decided, ”Why not?” I then promptly set it up on my device and played as usual. After a while, I noticed some differences. A few years ago, ads in this game we're occasional and few. Roughly ten seconds into the game the player is bombarded with ads to the point it inhibits gameplay. Features that were available years ago are now restricted by compounded video ads that can compile up to ten ads at a time. Another major difference is the VIP mode which is pushed on the consumer relentlessly and the use of the more exclusive currency to play the game properly. This ”special” mode includes many things that were available to the player years ago. Prices for all things requiring USD are drastically inflated. This push to seduce the consumer to pay for the game experience is shameful. All of these ads are ensuring that you, the consumer, buy another game so these developers get more money for ads. Also, these developers allow political ads for associations and corporations that have a feeling of propaganda. As a person who personally feels highly susceptible to advertising, I am truly disguised. I can now no longer recommend this game to anyone.
Too much “limited” ads
I thought this would be kind of entertaining at first, and it might actually be a really cool game, but only if you are willing to spend either a lot of money on a ridiculous subscription system, or sacrifice a lot of time watching videos of 30 seconds each. I understand that developers need to win some money, and this is usually OK with me, nevertheless this is way too much.
If you don’t want to spend money (just as me) then you will have to watch a series of videos to unlock a few things to use; depending on the “quality” of the item, they ask you to see certain amount of ads (there were some items that required me to see 20 videos to unlock). Ok, I was willing to accept that, when I found out the app has a limit of videos you can see to unlock stuff, and when you reach it, you have to wait a couple hours to unlock more videos. I mean, you have to wait to be able to see advertisement. That’s ridiculous! I’ve already deleted it. You literally spend more time watching videos than actually playing the game.
On the bright side, you can say this is entertaining and definitively funny, but this flaws I mentioned kind of ruined the experience. In other words it’s a pay-to-enjoy kind of game. I barely rate something, but I thought this was worth my opinion, hope it might be useful to someone.
This is honestly more stress-inducing instead of stress relieving.
Alright. I loved Kick The Buddy and was kind of upset when it was taken off the App Store. When I saw this, I was a little skeptical because I knew it wouldn’t be like what it used to, as most popular games nowadays have super over the top advertisements (I know I sound like a hipster but it’s true.). I decided to download it after a while, and there are some major flaws right off the bat. First, the most obvious one, there are TOO MANY ADS! I don’t usually mind advertising, but if there was a city of ads, this would be it. The worst part is that after each ad, the game gets all disoriented and half the screen is blocked because it’s shuffled halfway to the left. Second off is the crashes. Sometimes the game just crashes for no reason. When I do get to play the game, I genuinely enjoy it, but these flaws tend to take up 90% of the time I spend in the game. Overall, I’d recommend the game, but just be prepared for these few things. Also, I know it can take a little while to fix, but I think that they should at least attempt to suppress these issues. Thanks for reading!
EDIT: I also find the membership thing very annoying. It’s ridiculously priced and you can’t play most of the game without it, so the game might as well be $20 or so.

So I didn’t give this a one star review because it’s still Kind of the game that I played as a kid but with some major differences first of all I don’t remember many ads from before but now it feels like there are WAY more,and I bought the “no ads” Thing that costed five dollars but I still get ads maybe there’s a little bit less but there still a fair amount of ads still 50 percent at least of the ads there were
and I know there needs to be Ads To support the game but it doesn’t feel like the game I played as a kid as much, feels more... corporate more like (and I know will do this) it’s more centered on the money then it was The things that say free but need you to watch like 20 ads(I don’t know if they were there in the “original”But again IDK)they’re kind of annoying And make you think about the whole if feels like it’s only for the money thing No longer gives me the happiness of playing it anymore just going onto hit buddy for no reason just because I’m mad about how different it is from the “original” game And not going on to well I don’t know... RELIEVE MY OWN STRESS OR HAVE FUN LIKE I WOULD AS A KID!!. Sorry I just thought it would give me the feeling of being almost a kid again, if you have not played it Before this re-release Play you might actually like it. Sorry and not sorry, bye
This Game is Meh
by LUV LUV LUV IT 😀
I got this game for my young cousin. The day after I decided I would check it out, even more, as I had this game before for him but deleted it. I didn’t explore it a lot before, but now, my first impressions were, this is pretty fun! I played for a good few minutes, but then came the problems. First issue, ads. There is a ridiculous amount of ads! If you want to get a item, you have to watch 5, 10, or even 20 ads, and the majority of the items you have to watch ads for, or work a lot for the amount of coins required. And it’s not just for if you want an item, some points Buddy’s box tears and appears a ad, for say Party Masters, and on the right also appears a character from the game Party Masters. It’s ridiculous and annoying. Second issue, when Buddy dies, if you keep hitting him, while he’s dead you get no coins! It shouldn’t be like that, especially since a lot of the items cost tons of coins. Third issue, might just be for me but, sometimes when I click on an item, like Super Glue 909, I have enough coins but it just does... literally nothing! No pop up saying you don’t have enough coins, no pop up saying to watch an ad, nothing. It’s ridiculous, once again! I should be able to get the item, when I have the coins. I guess it’s a little bug, but it needs to be fixed. Overall this gets one star.
It’s just missing something
Like just because they missed something like this something they missed is just why can’t you buy what you want at the beginning like why don’t you get like $1000 like that happens and all the games like why can’t you get 1000 little monies things and you don’t you start out with zero and zero gold I thought you were and get the thing mount for each like I thousand dollars for gold and just like dollars but instead we didn’t get that much you just start out with zero and kick the buddy it’s entirely not fun when he runs around the whole room and you don’t get on lock whatever you want to beginning and there’s too many ads that’s not a good game buddy needs to be changed in but are you can’t even create him at the beginning because that’s not fair that’s just what buddy they made him doing just like it’s so cool to get more stuff like God’s other stuff but instead you don’t get them because you basically just don’t get that because just you didn’t program the game right you should’ve fixed it because it was just like so many people who have already said they need you guys to fix it OK now I’m getting too angry is paragraph might be a bit too long OK bye
This is the real thing
by I hate slitherio
People review other apps saying "this has the most ads in history I can barely play it, it's like a hundred ads everytime I play"
But of course they exaggerate, but if someone says that about this game, they are really not joking, this game is ridiculous and has extremely unsatisfactory content.
First off, some glitch has happened where you can't hear anything but the doll speaking or screaming, and ever since I've discovered that glitch, it wouldn't go away, second of all, the subscription, it's completely blasphemy and pathetic, who's gonna pay over 5 dollars just for some unlockable weapons, weekly? You are truly not right In the head if you think that would work, I can't imagine such scam and cash grab to fail. Now the worst for last, the ads, everyone has complained about them, and for obvious reasons, this game is literally infested with adds, you get un-skippable ads for almost every time you knock out buddy, you have to watch at best, 5 or more adds to be able to use most weapons in the game. Not only that, you have a little banner at the bottom, meaning you can't ever remove it unless you are lucky and don't get it when you open the app, it's extremely bothersome and block a lot of the screen, doesn't help when you have to play the game horizontally. What a let down of an app.
Lack of features and flaws
Ok, I’ve had kick the buddy for maybe 3 or 4 months by now.
I have the diamond pass too, honestly it’s pretty expensive. Before that, I was literally DROWNING IN ADS. Seriously this is too many ads!!! It’s very frustrating whenever he dies and takes like 30 seconds to load back in. It’s kind of stupid. “Free” items are 5,10, or even 20 ads!! This is bogus and I one day wish they would reduce the amount of ads you encounter throughout the “Gameplay” overall it’s a pretty fun game. I enjoy playing it with my friends. You’re basically watching ads more than you actually play the came. It also makes your stress level higher than lower. Why would you need to blast someone with a machine gun to “Remove stress” instead you can relax or listen or watch something soothing or relaxing. I can’t stand why you’d need to spend money on a “stress relieving “ game. I’d rather take a seat and relax and even make myself a cup of tea.
Do you all agree with me? I also hate how quickly buddy dies. It’s too fast. On the ads it shows buddy can last like 10 minutes without dying. I understand other players also have a problem with that PARTY MASTERS gangster and the I guess you can call it a “hole” in buddy’s box that says PartyMasters. Overall it lacks lots of features.

This game is quite fun, I enjoyed flinging the little guy on the screen around and using a large arsenal of weapons and devices to hurt the little fella. However, to get to use some of the most interesting devices, you will either have to buy a subscription, or watch about a million ads to get the things you want. Most weapons require 5 ads to unlock it! But the ads don’t stop then either, oh no. They have ads at the bottom which cover up a bit of the screen, so when you’re trying to play, you click the ad and it takes you to the page. Then, you go back to them game and continue playing and it says you have a “present” then open. But to open it, guess what? That’s right, another ad, and you can actually skip getting the present. But say you open it, once it finishes and the box opens and gives you either cash or gold, it will then ask you if you want to watch ANOTHER AD so you can double the reward you got. At the end of the day, it doesn’t feel pike they’re doing to support the game but just to get a bunch of money out of people. The only reason I didn’t give this a 1 Star is that I like the concept, but it’s filled with so many ads that I can’t get myself to play it.
