At TouchArcade, we pride ourselves on highlighting the best games the App Store has to offer. The Best Worst App Ever – EPIC ($6.99) is not one of those games. In fact it’s terrible, but in all the right ways. Indeed, as its name implies, in the world of bad apps this is definitely among the very best. The very best of the worst. And that’s how the developers intended it.
Now, I’ve played a lot of bad iPhone games in my days, and Best Worst App Ever – EPIC definitely isn’t the worst I’ve played. It’s just a little too simple. As a rocker bro cuts licks on his axe in the middle of the screen, a bunch of crazy crap begins zooming by. Tap an item to collect it, and tap three of the same item in a row to create a combo for more points.
That’s… pretty much it. You can play through a level-based campaign, which increases in difficulty and throws new silly items into the mix as you go, or play in free mode and just tap items to your heart’s content. In both modes you earn coins which go towards buying new items to deck out your rocker dude and his surroundings. The items also add various levels of coin bonuses, so you can earn a bit more based on what decorations you choose.
You can see everything you need to know about Best Worst App Ever – EPIC in its trailer, though if you’re prone to epileptic seizures then it might be best to avoid watching.
There are a lot of games in the App Store that are just thrown together and barely functional, but the Best Worst App Ever – EPIC isn’t one of those. It’s obviously had some love and effort put into it. The main gameplay mechanic is a bit too simple to keep me engaged, but it’s a free download and good for a laugh if you’re into sheer wackiness. Or you could just watch the trailer and basically get the entire gist of it, the choice is yours.
