Review Blood Bowl

Jay Feldman
Interesting concept, interesting graphics
Kills your battery, challenging controls, inconvenient to play on a small screen, low quality animation, unjustified price
Blood Bowl for Android is an interesting hybrid game; it's part fight, part fantasy, part football. Unfortunately, none of those parts is ready for prime-time.
Blood Bowl shows immense promise. You're playing American style football with a bunch of creepy ogres and monsters. And yes, as the name suggests, the game turns blood into sport as kicking your opponent's ass is just part of the game. The game unfolds as football would; one side kicks, the other receives and tries to run down the field and score a touchdown, or get killed trying. It all kinda sounds like just another day in the NFL to me.
The game is virtually unplayable in its current form. The concept sounds great on paper, but in reality, the controls are shoddy and virtually all the fonts borderline on unreadable because they are so tiny and microscopic. Virtually all of the screen space is needlessly wasted, assuring this game would be utterly useless on a smaller screen. Just trying to figure out how to navigate the interface and comprehend how to play is a belabored and needlessly clumsy experience. Tapping on specific players and coaxing them into doing anything is tedious at best.
The graphics are above average with promise, but still need a lot of work. The animation is choppy and lacks refinement. Setting up games is also cumbersome; recruiting players, selecting opponents; frankly, it's all just sensory overload and overdone. This app is screaming for some editing and a clear vision.
Blood Bowl is a prime example of why you should never release something before it's truly ready. This game needs more time in the incubator before it can even think about charging this kind of a premium. As it is, the play is just a hot mess.
