Concept and Gameplay
Personally I love games that are simple enough to pick up and start playing, yet complex enough to keep you on your toes.
In Bronko Blue Lite, you play an adorable kitten named Bronko Blue who is determine to ride the wind using his trusty umbrella.
To help Bronko Blue, you must tap the screen to send him higher into the sky and release your finger to send him back towards earth. This atmospheric side-scrolling game doesn’t take long to get used to once you have the hang of it.
Perhaps my favorite part of Bronko Blue Lite is just that: the atmosphere. I think the music and artwork make this game truly unique and enjoyable.
More often than not, I find myself frustrated by side-scrolling tap games, but there’s just something about Bronko Blue Lite that makes it impossible to dislike once you’ve started playing it.
There are even obstacles to overcome, requiring you to skillfully dodge them or crash right into them to knock them over and continue your journey. You can also collect balls of wool on your journey, which greatly contribute to your score.
In terms of gameplay, Bronko Blue Lite is incredibly enjoyable. Even if you’re not really into side-scrolling games, this particular one is worth playing solely for the purpose of listening to the music and admiring the virtual world of Bronko Blue.
As I mentioned before, it does take awhile to find the right rhythm as far as tapping the screen and maneuvering Bronko Blue around the screen, but players shouldn’t have too much difficulty.
Bronko Blue Lite is fairly light on features, which doesn’t negatively impact the game at all. The game does, however, include a beautifully diverse world of nightscapes and seasons as you progress through the game.
It’s also worth noting that your progress is saved automatically as you cross checkpoints, meaning you don’t have to face the disappointment of starting all over again if you happen to collide with an obstacle or evil bird.
Lastly, the lite version (which is the one version we reviewed) includes one complete world for players to enjoy. It’s also completely free of ads, which is almost unheard of.
Bronko Blue Lite can be downloaded for free from Google Play. If you enjoy the free version, it’s definitely worth checking out the full version of the game, as it includes four full worlds and many more things to experience!
Bronko Blue Lite requires Android 4.0+. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
