Game: Ultimate Briefcase
Platform on which it was played: IOS
Score: 3/10 – A game that was most likely a fantastic thought at 5:00 AM.
UB doesn’t charge you monetarily for the pleasure of playing it, instead you pay for that privilege with your precious time and effort
Price Paid: Free – it cost me a part of my soul
Hold on to your hats people, this one is gonna be fun.
Okay, I lied, this game is ‘not’ fun, it’ s trite, contrived and belligerently overzealous.
Ultimate Briefcase is an arcade-style game developed by ‘quite fresh’ available on IOS and Android.
In the game, the player must dodge falling objects and survive for as long as possible in order to obtain a good score and progress to harder and harder difficulties.
UB has social media integration which allows players to share their scores with their friends on Facebook and Twitter.
The player uses their finger or a stylus to manoeuvre the character around the screen in order to avoid being blown into sharp-dressed chunks.
The screen responds to the touch of a finger or stylus regardless of its vertical position on the device.
Once the player inevitably fails to dodge the incoming droplets of fire and doom, they are barraged by two-to-three adverts for other such garbage they have no intention of playing.
Further to this, the player can also spend their hard-earned cash on MICROTRANSACTIONS to buy more characters and items for the game.
While the player is being assaulted by an exaggerated retro style with terrible UI elements and an awful end-state system, they also have to endure the worst audio I have heard in a video game since Halo 3.
The music is fast-paced allegro which causes the player to endeavour to keep the beat while also dodging the on-screen items which proved itself to be quite a Herculean task.
The game in its entirety causes the player to be reckless and doesn’t lend itself to a long contemplation period.
As almost as soon as the player is dead and the ads have played, they are straight back into it with no regard for any mistakes which may have led them to die in the first place.
This is an obvious cash-flow focused game that has no consideration for any of the IP’s it is quite obviously blatantly copying.
A perfect example of ‘you get what you pay for’, avoid this at all costs and download something worthwhile.
