  • God help the fools who go premium... Jun 30, 2018

    By Humancheese69
    This is one of my favorite games of all time. The only problems I have with it are the ads and premium. It got to the point where I just put my phone on airplane mode to turn the ads off without paying for it... which leads to BOOM!: eight bucks for a week of premium. There’s only seven days in a week. So why would any sane person pay that much. I’m a bit of a game whale and I still wouldn’t spend THAT much money. I mean I just want this one teeny tiny torture instrument that wasn’t that expensive when the game first was out. But things like a baseball bat are premium. Is the bat also a nuclear powered laser sword that hits grenades for baseballs?? No it’s a bat. But I’d consider the premium if you guys would just lower the price on VIP. I mean you give away some one hundred gold a day all I need to do is watch a video. And if I’m not mistaken don’t you get paid per ad? Idk but you guys seem to have a lot of ads and a lot of high prices... otherwise it’s the best game in the world.☺️ I enjoy guillotines

    Very kinda satisfying, not boring, but kinda fun. Love it. But then, the ads are pretty annoying. After your done kicking the buddy, you get an award. But here's the catch, you have watch the ad to continue and get the prize. No matter where you click on your screen, it will just play the ad. Also, probably this is just the game on my device, but after a while, I couldn't here anything from the game. All the other apps are just working fine. Not good game for kids, Kill than Kick the buddy

    I love this game, but there's a problem, chill with the ads, I can't go 1 minute without an ad in my face. It is impossible to play. I loved this game when I was 7 but now it's just to much ads. There's more then 50M people on this game, you probably get alot of money from that, so just get rid of alot of the ads you can keep a few so you don't go bankrupt, but at least make the game playable.

    Ok so I love the game, it's just the ads, I remember when buddy had little to no ads but then the developers got greedy and put ad after ad, ad after you pull the ribbon after you kill him ect. And to remove them you have to pay 7 dollars every week with the diamond member ship, if you could fix the ads I'll give a higher rate

  • This game used to be incredible.. until it got re-released. Jun 28, 2020

    By BloodOnWhite
    I used to Kick Buddy all the time in the old version of the game. I just re-installed to see if I could bring back some memories and on first launch they told me to buy a premium membership for $7.99/week which is INSANE. I don’t because I figured it won’t hinder my gameplay, but boy was that wrong. 75% of the items you can buy with in-game currency are Premium member EXCLUSIVE. If you don’t pay them weekly, you get the most basic weapons and items to use on Buddy. After a few minutes of playing I was already fed up with this game, and then the ad waves hit. I got ad after ad. It even glitched half my screen after closing one and crashed the game another time. I can’t believe they have the audacity to ask for an insane weekly payment like that, while they’re getting paid for showing an ad every 15 seconds. If you don’t buy Premium, the game is 75% unplayable or locked, and almost 90-95% unplayable with the ads and crashes. I used to want as many people as possible to play this game back before this new release, but now it is the steamiest pile of trash on the App Store. And to the developers, Thanks for ruining my old memories and many other people’s with this obvious attempt at a cash whale. Your greed is going to be your downfall if you don’t change the way you run your game. Good luck trying to scam anyone with this game.

  • Too much “limited” ads Jun 1, 2018

    By martspain
    I thought this would be kind of entertaining at first, and it might actually be a really cool game, but only if you are willing to spend either a lot of money on a ridiculous subscription system, or sacrifice a lot of time watching videos of 30 seconds each. I understand that developers need to win some money, and this is usually OK with me, nevertheless this is way too much. If you don’t want to spend money (just as me) then you will have to watch a series of videos to unlock a few things to use; depending on the “quality” of the item, they ask you to see certain amount of ads (there were some items that required me to see 20 videos to unlock). Ok, I was willing to accept that, when I found out the app has a limit of videos you can see to unlock stuff, and when you reach it, you have to wait a couple hours to unlock more videos. I mean, you have to wait to be able to see advertisement. That’s ridiculous! I’ve already deleted it. You literally spend more time watching videos than actually playing the game. On the bright side, you can say this is entertaining and definitively funny, but this flaws I mentioned kind of ruined the experience. In other words it’s a pay-to-enjoy kind of game. I barely rate something, but I thought this was worth my opinion, hope it might be useful to someone.

  • This Game is Meh Feb 3, 2019

    By LUV LUV LUV IT 😀
    I got this game for my young cousin. The day after I decided I would check it out, even more, as I had this game before for him but deleted it. I didn’t explore it a lot before, but now, my first impressions were, this is pretty fun! I played for a good few minutes, but then came the problems. First issue, ads. There is a ridiculous amount of ads! If you want to get a item, you have to watch 5, 10, or even 20 ads, and the majority of the items you have to watch ads for, or work a lot for the amount of coins required. And it’s not just for if you want an item, some points Buddy’s box tears and appears a ad, for say Party Masters, and on the right also appears a character from the game Party Masters. It’s ridiculous and annoying. Second issue, when Buddy dies, if you keep hitting him, while he’s dead you get no coins! It shouldn’t be like that, especially since a lot of the items cost tons of coins. Third issue, might just be for me but, sometimes when I click on an item, like Super Glue 909, I have enough coins but it just does... literally nothing! No pop up saying you don’t have enough coins, no pop up saying to watch an ad, nothing. It’s ridiculous, once again! I should be able to get the item, when I have the coins. I guess it’s a little bug, but it needs to be fixed. Overall this gets one star.

  • This is the real thing Jan 18, 2018

    By I hate slitherio
    People review other apps saying "this has the most ads in history I can barely play it, it's like a hundred ads everytime I play" But of course they exaggerate, but if someone says that about this game, they are really not joking, this game is ridiculous and has extremely unsatisfactory content. First off, some glitch has happened where you can't hear anything but the doll speaking or screaming, and ever since I've discovered that glitch, it wouldn't go away, second of all, the subscription, it's completely blasphemy and pathetic, who's gonna pay over 5 dollars just for some unlockable weapons, weekly? You are truly not right In the head if you think that would work, I can't imagine such scam and cash grab to fail. Now the worst for last, the ads, everyone has complained about them, and for obvious reasons, this game is literally infested with adds, you get un-skippable ads for almost every time you knock out buddy, you have to watch at best, 5 or more adds to be able to use most weapons in the game. Not only that, you have a little banner at the bottom, meaning you can't ever remove it unless you are lucky and don't get it when you open the app, it's extremely bothersome and block a lot of the screen, doesn't help when you have to play the game horizontally. What a let down of an app.

    I uninstalled this because of ads. Ads are the only thing that shows on the screen. Buying a new weapon? ADS!! Switch out another weapon? ADS!! Do literally everything else? You guessed it, ADS!! This game was so fun but now it's just a stupid waste of time. You should not download this game... well... unless you have the power to go back in time to get the old version AKA the non-ad version. But, who would even have that power anyway... Okay but seriously this game sucks now.

    The game is halarious, buddy can actually respond to when you do something, like if you hit him, he's just reacting in halarious ways, but the ads are a bit of a problem, maybe just cool the ads down a bit? And also I need internet to buy the weapons, so could you be able to make most of the weapons able to get without internet?

  • Amazing but... Dec 8, 2017

    By Hunter Cornelius
    I played the game before it was removed from the App Store it was amazing but there are some problems. Some of them would have to be original weapons that were added into the new one or more expensive than what they used to be. This is a feature that I do not exactly like I remember how an acid tank would be like 1000 now it’s 18,000. Also in app purchases don’t get as much as as you used to like the one dollar one only gives you 100 gold or $1000 while back then it used to be around one dollar would give you $5000 or 300 gold. The final problem I have with this game would have to be advertisement. There is a very heavy, advertisement amount. This is very easy to change and it would most likely attract more consumers. But I still love the game how old is that these things that I have explained I would just really like if you bring back the original weapons and items like the games section it would just make it more interesting. Please take acknowledge (best stress reliever) games.

  • Love The Game, But There’s A Few Problems. Devs, Please Respond. Mar 3, 2021

    By User: MasterChief117
    So, great game, used to play it years ago, got back into it recently. Don’t remember having these forced ads at all though a few years ago, only optional ones. Please remove the forced ads. And, of course, there’s the problem with the items. Everything costs a ridiculous amount of gold or cash, which would take months to get without purchasing any currency. And I’m not gonna spend real money on this game, not yet at least. So please lower the prices of most items, or make some of the cheaper items do more damage and give you more cash. Make it easier to get gold! Maybe give us a free 5 gold per day and 1 gold every time we kill Buddy. WITHOUT WATCHING AN AD. I also suggest you watch out for some of the knockoff games, all over the App Store. Just look up ‘stress relief’ or ‘kick the’ to find most of them. Thanks for reading.

  • My Kick The Buddy Review. Mar 9, 2020

    By Robloxfunkid_999
    This game is great, pretty fun to I don’t like a lot of add games, but it is worth it, this game is cool it’s like just destroying a doll constantly with different weapons. When Buddy says “loser” it reminds me of how the game creator added voice affects into the game with a makes it very funny in my opinion. Getting cash is not the easiest but the more you play the more cash you get tons of cash to get new weapons. For starters with not much cash I’m glad the creator added “watch a add to use a free item to destroy Buddy” Witch I really like for starters. Just I really wish I didn’t have to go through so much adds and I feel like they need to add one more thing not to use for an add just so people have two choices instead of one if they do not want to watch an add. But they have a lot of stuff to me too use better so the game isn’t short to beat the game like other games like this game I am rating. Overall this game is pretty fun I rated it 4 stars because of the adds and the other stuff I have said earlier.

    The game is a good game, it helps you calm down when you mad, it's satisfying. I would give more stars but there's a glitch that's stopping me. I was playing nomarly and then a present that popped up with a ad button below it so I did usually I tried to find the x button, but I couldn't find it so I just pressed the button for the ad. When I pressed it didn't work, and I knew it wasn't my wifi or lag. So I exited the game and came back and it did the same thing! Can you fix it?

  • Ads Everywhere Jan 14, 2018

    By Mad Max Reviews
    This game is quite fun, I enjoyed flinging the little guy on the screen around and using a large arsenal of weapons and devices to hurt the little fella. However, to get to use some of the most interesting devices, you will either have to buy a subscription, or watch about a million ads to get the things you want. Most weapons require 5 ads to unlock it! But the ads don’t stop then either, oh no. They have ads at the bottom which cover up a bit of the screen, so when you’re trying to play, you click the ad and it takes you to the page. Then, you go back to them game and continue playing and it says you have a “present” then open. But to open it, guess what? That’s right, another ad, and you can actually skip getting the present. But say you open it, once it finishes and the box opens and gives you either cash or gold, it will then ask you if you want to watch ANOTHER AD so you can double the reward you got. At the end of the day, it doesn’t feel pike they’re doing to support the game but just to get a bunch of money out of people. The only reason I didn’t give this a 1 Star is that I like the concept, but it’s filled with so many ads that I can’t get myself to play it.

  • Fine game but.... Dec 1, 2018

    By barbcross
    I like this game and bowmasters etc... but I just feel like playgendary is an ok company while I also think that most of their games are kind of a money grab. This freaking game is drowning you with ads most of the ads are about playgendary’s games. The ads are Bowmasters,Bouncemasters,golfmasters,and finally Party Masters. This Company thinks that they can get away with forcing you to watch ads for a game you most likely will play one day seeing all the ads there are and then never playing it again. The diamond membership price is way to over priced for an app and most of the weapons in this game are pretty much just the same thing. I have the mace with spikes and watched 10 ads, yes 10 ads to get a clever that worked the same way the mace did. And if you don’t want ads but dint want the diamond membership either? Then buy no ads which is also over priced. 4.99 to remove ads. Now, back to the ads....again the ads are mostly about playgendarys games but the one add that keeps popping up is that god annoying bowmasters game. NO, I dont wanna install Bowmasters so stop asking. Maybe if this game and this company as a whole would stop ripping you off the games would actually be playable.

  • What happened? Nov 4, 2017

    By Blue_Splatoon
    It was hard to even give this a two star. I grew up playing this game. I found out about it in 2012 when my friend introduced it to me, and I couldn’t stop playing it. It has many memories that stick with me to this day. Times changed and I got bored, until an add popped up for a weird bear game, that looked exactly like a game I remembered, so I looked around and eventually found this game again. I decided to compare them. The bear game was horrible, easily remembered the sounds from Kick the Buddy and saw it as a wannabe. So I went back to this to remember the old times. But what I found wasn’t fun at all. It’s no longer fun or challenging to get anything. It’s all ad based. I already got all the clothing items with cash in under an hour, and got 1/8 of the weapons in under an hour. I honestly don’t know what happened, but who the heck had this idea? Why would you think of trying to transition to a modern game? This literally reminded me of wannabe games, please fix these things. This game was one of the first if its kind and was unique, and now it’s slowly losing what it was as a unique title. Please fix this, I remember the good days when this game was unique and fun to play. Please, please fix this.

  • What happened to the childhood game we all know and love?! Nov 15, 2017

    By MaxGetsBuckets
    I used to play Kick the Buddy Second Kick all the time when I was younger! Now I saw this in the App Store and decided to see if it was as good as the OG game. Now it’s all about videos and texting people! It’s really not fun when you really want something and you have to watch 100 videos for it. Also where did the background go? It’s been replaced by “More Stuff” section that I can’t seem to even get into. There are ads at the bottom of the page always and sometimes I accidentally click it and it totally ruins the game. I wish you didn’t take away the little bar at the top where you could store your favorite tools and use them without searching the inventory. I do still think it is a fun game so I gave it 2 stars. But please this needs fixing! Stop making me waste my time watching videos and texting ads to my own number over and over. This game really has potential if they made it more like the old one. And if the reason they are putting ads in is because they are low on money, then I think if they make it good then they might make back the difference. Wake up a little, people only want to play fun games.

    It's fun to play but definitely take some adds out. Whenever I go on the menu I just get an add every time. Edit: ok OK I started playing this game when I was like 6, I loved and now its just annoying... there's ads EVERYWHERE and I kept on installing and uninstalling it. The last time I installed it was like a few months ago, I played it for about 4 months but it just got really boring. Plz add more weapons and take out some ads! I know it gets you money but take some more out!
