Review Beat The Boss 3
Think of it as a voodoo doll for Android

Oddly satisfying, funny sounds, neat graphics
Crashes, monotonous game play, not interesting to play without paying money
Beat The Boss 3 for Android is oddly satisfying, but I have to seriously question the sanity of anyone who hates their boss enough to fall head over heels for this game. Yet here we are, on part 3, so clearly there are a lot of disgruntled workers out there.
Beat The Boss 3 gives the dissatisfied and downtrodden an opportunity to seek revenge. Got a serious jerk for a boss? Is he (or she) a total a-hole? Do you pine away the hours fantasizing about their untimely demise? Or how you’d like to bash their head in? Well, now’s your chance to do just that, without any of the pesky repercussions; like getting fired or perhaps going to jail.
The game takes place in the boss’ office, because there’s really no better place to give your boss the whooping of his life than in front of everyone.
Take! That! You! Stinkin’! Mother! Effer!
*Whew* I feel refreshed and ready to get back to work now …er … except I no longer have a job!
That’s literally the game in a nutshell; just drag that stinking boss around the screen and bash his head into everything you can think of. As he gets the crap knocked outta him, he gets all bruised and bloody. And if you’re particularly angry, you can even beat him to death. But fret not; you can also revive him so you can have the fun of killing him all over again! What joy!
There’s plenty of upgrades, like additional weapons and blunt objects to pummel your boss with. You can even customize his look and outfits, so you can make him look as much like your real boss as possible, and really get satisfaction out of beating the daylights out of a true lookalike.
Beat The Boss 3 is oddly therapeutic. I have some specific lawyers and insurance adjusters in mind when I play. Oh, ok, and perhaps even a family member or two. …and maybe a couple politicians. I guess all this venting of one’s frustrations via app is better than the alternative of doing it for real. So go ahead, bet the crap out of that obnoxious jerk, whomever it may be; then get back to work before you really get in trouble.
