So I have a tale to tell about my experience procuring Gumboy Tournament.

It was a warm summer night, and I was walking to my local Toys R Us to check out the games . I hoped to find some hidden gems, but what I found was like discovering a brand new Ninjustu (I'm a ninja of the Hidden Leaf Village). As I enter the store, and quickly concentrate my chakra to my feet to zoom across the aisles to the game section, and see a new game "Gumboy Tournament" sitting on the shelf. There is only one copy left, and I see some granny about to take it, talking about how her grandson would like it. I swiftly throw my kunai at her, and then dash up and chop her in 2 with my katana. At last, this game will be my sweet salvation. I take it to the cash register, and hastily give the cashier (who happened to be a pretty female around my age) the game. She attempts to scan it, when all of a sudden, an army of grannies start charging at us as fast as the can, their walkers squeaking across the floor, as they try to get the game for their grand kids. I start doing my tiger hand signs, preparing my self for the Fireball jutsu. As I build up my chakra, I say " I will not let you assault m'lady in this manner ." I cast my fireball jutsu, and burn all the vermin (to the unknowing eye, it would look like I just took out a lighter and a can of Axe™ spray, but this is just what non-believers see). I turn back to the cashier, and she gives me the now purchased game. She looks at me longingly and says "Wanna go on a date soon?" I look back at her, tip my fedora, and reply "No thanks, m'lady, you aren't my type."

Gumboy Tournament is a inexpensive game to seep your time into for a few minutes each day or if you've nothing else to do/play. In this game, you are a racing gumball(I know, right?) and you go through many levels and different kinds of races(which are basically just the same 9-10 levels repeated over and over again, slowly becoming more challenging) to earn trophies. Basically, you use your mouse to move and fire your gumball in different directions. The AI is pathetic, so most all of the races are easy, and you'll beat each in roughly 1-3, depending on how far you are. The graphics are livable, but they're not that great and make the game look flat. The game does have multiplayer, although I have not personally tried it out since no one has made a server in a good few years, but I imagine that it would have the same gameplay as the singleplayer.



In short, this is a relatively fun, casual game to spend your free time on when you've only got a minute or so and you've run out of dragons to kill. The multiplayer however has been dead for several years now though, so only play for singleplayer or with friends. $3 is too expensive for this game, seeing as of how you can easily buy this game on sale for $.29.


Rating: 6/10: the game is fun for the price I paid, but is mostly uninspired.

Well first up, WARNING: This game doesn't work in fullscreen, it just locks your system up. Developers apparently didn't bother testing on anything but a junky old 1080p monitor.

Artwork style in the game rating out of 10: MSPaint. Seriously, the graphics are that bad.

Gameplay: Well it's like Wizball (kind of - instead of bouncing, you're sticky and ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥) from the 1980s but competitive and not particularly fun or interesting. There's no real story mode, you just go through levels competing against other players or the AI. You roll around the walls of the map and collect diamonds to get more points than the other guy. In the era of Grand Theft Auto 5, Ark, The Witcher 3, Skyrim, Star Citizen, and so many other incredible games, they give us MSPaint with sticky balls. Correction, they ask for us to pay them for sticky balls, it's not even free. Even if it was free, you wouldn't want it.

Technical stuff: Absolutely atrocious - doesn't work on modern systems. Video options are limited to turning off the background and running the game in full screen. Bonus: If you run windowed, and switch out, the game locks up and stays stuck in foreground. Alt+F4 is your friend, thankfully. Kudos to the developers for allowing us to exit the game.

Don't buy this. Play one of the F2P games from the Steam store instead.

Very well built physics based game.
Good strong deep intellectual story line
Great complex characters.
I'll never forget the final boss fight.. nearly put me to tears.
Highly skill based. I would not be surprised if this game was considered for MLG.
Not for everyone however.
The competitive edge will turn some casuals away.
10/10

It's on sale for $0.29 right now, but you're better off just buying a gumball instead. It's four cents cheaper and you can blow bubbles.

I do not recommend this game for anyone over the age of 8. There is little to no challenge even on the highest difficulty, the voices are dreadfully squeaky and annoying and the music is barely tolerable. I bought this game for 29 cents and I still feel as if it was a complete waste of money.

This game reminds me a lot of games I used to play on other consoles..
It is a 90's game when they created a lot of these games ... still nice to play with your friends. Although no servers cause no one still plays it but you can do a LAN server or singleplayer.
Nice game

6.5/10

This is an evolution of the human race. Only in my dreams have I witnessed slimy gumballs sloshing around in different gamemodes! Don't even get me started on the only server! It's the best server you can imagine, based in the czech republic. If I went on this review would be at least 4 pages long. BUY THIS NOW!!!

UPDATE: The game really is just a mediocre flash game that you have to pay for. Has frame rate drops, buy this for your friend, not yourself. You're not missing anything.

Pros:
Kinda fun at times

Cons:
Too easy
Broken Multiplayer (I started my own server and couldn't even join)
Framerate drops

Just no

UPDATE # DOS: I recently made a steam group for this game, join if you want!!

Pro:
Fun graphics
Demo
Low system specs
Multiplayer
Inexpensive


Con:
Level design is inconsistent
Repetitive & borning really fast
No cards or achieves
Audio may induce suicidal thoughts

Overall:
5/10 +1 looks, +2 demo, -1 no cards or achieves, -1 repetitive = 6/10

Of the Gumboys this is my favorite, partly due tot he multiplayer. $3 is not bad and if you can get it on sale, even better.

A fun way to kill an hour or two but $5.50 for 2 hours may or may not be a deal. Grab when on sale only.

I think that game is fun only wth friends, bots is easy or very hardcore. But if you was bored, and you have 2 euros, why not?
