Neat graphics, distinctive levels, simple controls
Bat Challenge for Android is a fun arcade game with a very spooky theme. The objective of this game is to control your bat through a variety of spooky environments whilst dodging animals and creatures of the night. The gameplay is very simple and the interface isn't the best but you'll happily find a few minutes worth of stress-free fun from this game.
The controls in this game are fairly straight forward. Your bat will constantly move forward and by tapping on the screen your bat will start to move upwards. By default your bat will fly downwards so to dodge obstacles and creatures you must move your finger on and off of the screen. There are a variety of different levels, all of which have been hand-made by the developer. I must say that the level design was my favorite part of this app.
The gameplay itself is quite fun too, although the hit box for the bat is a little unforgiving at times. Sometimes your bat's wing only just scrapes an enemy and this will cause the game to end. Like mentioned before, the interface is very basic too and a small upgrade to this would really help to give the game a bit more shine.
As you continue through the different levels you'll start to find that the game becomes increasingly more difficult. If you are up for a challenging arcade game that isn't as equally frustrating as something like Flappy Bird then this app might be for you.
Bat Challenge is completely free to play and there are no in-app purchases to deal with at all.
