Every once in a while I need a new puzzle game that fuels my excitement for casual games. Those games that are easy to pick up an hard to put down. I am a big fan of those and have a lot of them on my phone. Even though they all have different genres - may it be puzzles, or matching games, jump'n runs or word games, they all keep me entertained and busy. Will I include Bingo Blitz in my collection?
I used to love going to the bingo hall on Saturday evenings with my mother when I was little, my favorite part about playing was smashing the daubs onto the cards every time I heard my numbers called!
Nowadays, it's not as easy to enjoy the little things like enjoying a small town bingo hall event, but that doesn't mean I enjoy the game any less. Thanks to the mobile gaming market, I can once again enjoy an exciting game of bingo, except this time it's on the screen of my phone or tablet! Bingo Blitz caught my attention in the play store because of the family-friendly feel I got from the game. Some apps are so focused on hounding players for money or enticing them with lewd images that the true innocence and fun of the game are lost. Luckily, the developers of Bingo Blitz kept the heart of the game intact and left out all the distractions of typical gambling games.
I think what drew my attention to the game initially were the adorable characters that play alongside you in Bingo Blitz. There are cats, mice, and other endearing critters that pop up from time to time, which I feel is a breath of fresh air compared to some of the other apps I've tried.
The team behind Bingo Blitz stay true to a cartoon-like aesthetic with playful backgrounds and well animated Bingo wins. If you enjoy playing Bingo and have been looking for a wholesome game to pore some time into, then head to the play store and download Bingo Blitz to test your luck.
I honestly didn't expect there to be so many options as far as themes for games in Bingo Blitz. I assumed that cards might have special animations or color schemes, but never did I imagine that Bingo Blitz would offer just over 100 choices for bingo room themes.
I love that each room offers different characters and background animations to accompany the theme of the cards, this attention to detail is not only entertaining, but it gives the game a whole new element of playability as well.
Bingo Blitz has been a beloved mobile game for many years, but ever since Guy Fieri, the infamous Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives star, and chef, attached himself to the app it seems to be slowly going downhill.
Celebrities seem to want to latch onto other projects to keep themselves in the game, and unfortunately, that's what Guy has done with Bingo Blitz. After nearly every update since the Guy Fieri mini-game has been added to the title, there are consistent crashes, and updates that force players to spend their real money if they want to progress in the game.
Something that was meant to give players a nostalgic play experience has turned into a war of the wallets, and it has the potential to ruin a really great game.
One of the biggest problems that will need to be reworked is the tight win system placed by the development team. They say the game is all by chance and that there is no special algorithm for winning, but it seems awfully strange that after a certain celebrity latches on to the title that wins seem to occur less and less.
Unfortunately, this breakage in the system means that fewer wins for players mean fewer points to continue playing, which only puts on the pressure to spend money in the in-game shop. If you don't mind slower progression, however, then Bingo Blitz just might be the bingo experience you've been looking for.
