For those of us that consider ourselves young, the elderly may seem like a strange bunch with their crazy saying and love of bingo. If Aceviral is to be believed, The elderly also pose a serious threat to the safety of everyone that they meet. Angry Gran is a new casual game that takes a somewhat controversial theme and pairs it with a light gameplay and addictive unlockables.

Armed with a rolled up newspaper initially. Your sweet and fragile grandmother walks the street taking out everything in her path. The object is to hit the passing people and objects with as much force as possible to score money.To do this you tap and hold to build up your meter. WHen it is full you let go to unlatch an attack, that if timed correctly, will smash the object or person, giving you a pile of cash. You can let go before the meter is full, but it will not give you as much cash.

While assault and vandalism may seem easy, you have to always be on the lookout for the constable that if hit will lock you up for a moment. You must also time your strikes perfectly or else you will hit yourself and wind up in a wheelchair. The wasted time brings you closer to the checkpoints that comes at intervals. If you have not reached your quota for cash before reaching them then the game is over. Between games you can spend your cash to raise your stats and purchase items that will help you in the game. You can also upgrade you weapon with one that has extra abilities.

There is an IAP to get cash quickly if you are the type that doesn’t like to work for your achievements. The game also provides a pension that build up as intervals so you can collect more cash by returning to the game often. Games like this are simple and offer a small amount of fun. I had an enjoyable time playing it for a couple afternoons, but quickly grew tired of it as the grind for better items set in. Being a free game, I think this is perfectly acceptable, and the in app ads were not a bother to me. As casual games go this one is right down the middle, not to boring, but also nothing too amazing. Check it out and see if Angry Gran is the kind of game for you.

We rate this app 2.5 out of 5 stars.
