Reviewing Buster Bash for iOS

August 13, 2012

Buster Posey came out with a video game.

Being a lover of both baseball and video games I decided to give it a try.

The game overall is pretty fun, you start off as a young Buster in Leesburg, Georgia hitting homers over the barn in the backyard. As you collect sunflower seeds (the games currency) you level up your Buster and take on the different levels. Next it is the Toyota “Oh my God there is a truck on the upper deck” Youth Championship, then you progress to the High School Under Armour All-America Baseball level, then to “College” and then the Big Leagues.

The game play is simple enough, you drag your finger across the screen and make contact with the ball that is thrown by the pitchers.

There is a bit of a learning curve on how to best make solid contact but before too long you are peppering balls all over the backyard and on your way to collecting seeds to level up to get to the big leagues.

After a few weeks with the game I have become pretty proficient with the game. I haven’t quite cracked the big leagues but that is just because the game really doesn’t trust rookies, once I have a few more gray hairs I am sure I will get my call up.

Also when you hook the game up to your Game Genie you can unlock “Brett Pill” mode. “Brett Pill” mode changes the game’s physics so it is like you are playing baseball on the moon. The dingerz that you can you hit like this are pretty impressive. Turning on “Brandon Belt” mode you swing and miss at just about everything. Your only hope of scoring points is that if a ball bounces off your slumpy shoulders, this mode is only recommended for advanced users.

If you are short on seeds don’t splurge on one of the many options available in the game, although I can’t blame you if you use this as your opportunity to sign up for I can’t really blame you. The 974 seeds would be well worth it. The best way to get to the majors as we learned in the late 90’s and early 00’s is hard work and spinach, so just do that.
