Bring out your cannons once more, because Backflip Studios’ third offering in its hit series of Ragdoll Blaster physics-based puzzlers is now available in the App Store.
While it’s true that a number indicating the game’s ordinal position in the series is included in its name, Ragdoll Blaster 3 actually looks so different from both its predecessors that it may very well be a series kickstarter itself. The first Ragdoll Blaster was released back when minimal yet playful doodle art was all the rage (2009, remember?) and it was not immune to that now-faraway fad. The second, released in 2010, took a more refined approach with its steampunk visuals. But now the latest iteration of Ragdoll Blaster boasts high-definition 3D graphics brimming with color and cartoon fun.
The gameplay remains practically the same across all Ragdoll Blaster versions: launch a ragdoll out of a cannon and into the air, that is, after adjusting the angle and firing speed of the cannon so as to make the ragdoll hit the red bulls-eye target. But beyond that, Ragdoll Blaster 3 carries a heavy artillery of new features in addition to its more advanced graphics, including five unique ragdolls with unique characters and custom-tailored suits to boot, amusing sound effects, integrated sharing options, and more than a hundred levels with varying setups and obstacles spread across five game worlds.
It should also be noted that Ragdoll Blaster 3 is one big app, tipping the memory scale at more than a hundred megabytes. It took almost an hour to download on my iPhone, a period which I just spent reacquainting myself with Ragdoll Blaster 1 and 2. But just minutes after downloading Ragdoll Blaster 3 I had already found myself having a blast.
Would I Buy Again:Yes.
Who Is It For:Players of the two previous Ragdoll Blaster games eager to try the next.
What I Like:The vibrant graphics.
What I Don't Like:The size of the app.
Final Statement:The latest title in the Ragdoll Blaster franchise hits the squishy, red bulls-eye.
"We're big fans of the Ragdoll Blaster series, and Ragdoll Blaster 3 looks like it's the sunniest one yet." ~ SlideToPlay.com
"If you haven't played a Ragdoll Blaster game yet, and are even remotely interested in physics puzzlers, get on it." ~ TouchArcade.com
With over 15 MILLION downloads, Ragdoll Blaster is almost certainly the most popular ragdoll blasting game of all time.
Ok, let's face it. The idea of firing lovable ragdolls out of a cannon, around (and occasionally into) various obstacles, is completely absurd. But, don't let that fool you.
