Kung Fu Rabbit ($0.99) by Bulkypix puts you in the role of a ninja rabbit. Evil black goo aliens have kidnapped your fellow rabbits. You’ll need to leap across rooftops, hop over perils, and climb walls in order to rescue your friends.
A far cry from the Easter Bunny, and not quite Usagi Yojimbo from the “Ninja Turtle” series, this rabbit is fiercely determined to kick some alien butt. Though while his heart is in it, that doesn’t mean that the aliens can’t strike back. As you move through each level, you’ll need to be aware of the puddles of black goo filling gaps and stretched along vertical surfaces.
Touching any of the goo (even slightly) results in so-sad-too-bad-replay-the-level-again. You may find yourself doomed to repeating the level over and over again if you don’t learn from your mistakes about where you went wrong (I know I did).
The controls include left and right movement buttons on the left side, followed by an up arrow for jumping on the other side. Double jumping won’t work, though you can bounce from wall to wall, Jackie Chan style.
Each level has three carrots to gather, which will earn you a high score, and some have special golden carrots. Jump your way through the level until you can free one of the rabbits trapped in a bubble of goo.
While the regular carrots are only a one time deal, you can repeat previous levels to collect golden carrots multiple times.
The carrots can be traded in to unlock special powers from the Dojo, including soul of the rabbit (create checkpoints), power aura (makes levels easier), and carrot juice (power up mode), just to name a few.
With 70 levels of play across three worlds, including a “bonus cavern” of extra levels, you’re sure to have a good time.
This is an entertaining game, full of adventure and cartoon antics. Hop on over to the App Store to check it out.
