Bouncy Bob is a hyper simplistic physics based game that would be a hard sell even at the sale price I paid of $0.01. I mean, yeah, it was only a penny, but that’s a sliver of storage space that could be spent on something way more useful like a funny screenshot. In all seriousness, though, it really is a disappointing game that’s not good for much more than a few minutes of mindless entertainment here and there. I personally found it to be much less entertaining than Solitaire, and that’s been a standard pack-in game on Windows for like a quarter of a century.
The basic point of the game is that you hold a button to charge up a jump and use the control stick to steer your character in the air. Zombies will spawn, and you have to try to land on them to kill them or collect one of the occasional arrow power-ups that sends arrows flying down and try to hit them with an arrow. When you reach a certain score, the exit portal opens. That’s it. That’s a whole game. There’s a little bit of variety with the stage layout, but the actual gameplay stays pretty much the same.
The game’s visuals are pretty mediocre. The titular character is just a black blob with a goofy face and some appendages. There’s absolutely nothing particularly memorable about the sound design, and the enemies are as bland looking at the player character. The backgrounds look nice for what they are, but as the game largely went for a fairly silhouette art style, there just isn’t a lot of detail. It’s not an unplayable game by any means, but I don’t know why anyone would want to play it. It’s just boring.

I'm a teacher.
And I like to play video games. I like to collect video games. I like to talk about video games, and I like to write about video games. During the day, I teach high school history; during the night, I spend my spare time gaming. Then I write about it.
