Angry Birds was such a phenomenon a few years ago that it’s developer, Rovio, became an industry giant over night.  Of course with success comes copies and clones.  With Angry Bunnies: Colossal Carrot Crusade, Cypronia has tried to dip their hands in the market that the success of Angry Birds created.

If you’ve played Angry Birds, Angry Bunnies will feel real familiar to you right from the get go.  Just like in the Angry Birds, you will control a launching pad to shoot projectiles towards the right hand side of the screen to eliminate the structures and enemies.  Birds and pigs have been switched out for bunnies and foxes though.  There are different sorts of bunnies that will help you crush the devious foxes and also collect the three carrots per stage.  The addition of collectable carrots introduces a new element that you will need to strategize for.  These are also used for your online ranking, which is great for extra replay value.

Included in the game are six worlds with around twenty levels available in each for over a total of 150 stages.  The backgrounds will range from snow to the desert and other levels as well.  The backgrounds dont really add anything except scenery, but some of the structures that you will be demolishing are cleverly constructed, making it fun but not overly difficult.

The game is played by using the touchscreen on the GamePad, but in a weird move, you can’t play the game completely off-screen.  You move the aiming path around the touchscreen which will allow you to change the speed and the trajectory that you are launching the bunnies.  Some of the special moves from the bunnies will require you to tap the screen a second time, which is very reminiscent of Angry Birds.

Unfortunately, the graphics look like they haven’t been overhauled much from the 3DS version and look really bad blown up on the big screen.  I’ve seen ports of 3DS games make their way to the Wii U and look top notch, but again it looks almost like a straight port which is a huge let down. The soundtrack is super catchy though and even had my daughter dancing around to it.  That’s always a plus in my eyes.

The Recommendation

Angry Bunnies: Colossal Carrot Crusade is a tough game for me to recommend.  It focuses too much to be like Angry Birds and doesn’t carve a niche or market for itself.  If you absolutely love Angry Birds, then you will like this title as it basically clones everything the aforementioned title does well.  Maybe with more polish on the graphics and something more then just a clone of another already popular game this had a chance to be something special.
