The Flintstones: Bedrock!

The Flintstones: Bedrock!

The Flintstones is one of the most popular cartoon series ever. Aired for the first time in the 1960s the animated sitcom has had fans in the millions ever since. Despite the fact that 50 years sit between the first run and us, The Flintstones spirit is alive – just open Google Play and you will see the latest incarnation of it in an Android game called The Flintstones: Bedrock!

The series always brings warm memories and minutes of fun but is this true for the game as well? Guided by our warm feelings for The Flintstones we downloaded this app and decided to give it a try. Did we like it? Read on to find out.

Unfortunately we encountered a “feature” almost immediately after we ran the game for the first time. Despite the game being about 40 MB in size once run it immediately downloads another large file that can easily take about 5-10 minutes of your life and that is on a fast 35 Mbit Internet connection. Once this is taken care of you can finally play the game. In a few words – Bedrock has been devastated by meteors and you have to rebuild your home hence the Bedrock word in the title of the game.

The Flintstones: Bedrock! offers gameplay that is all about completing various missions. If you do that you will have progress in the game, if you don’t then no progress will be seen. There are some side missions as well like “go and get some groceries” but to do so you will have to work in Fred’s quarry for 8 hours. So, expect some lengthy periods before you can advance in the game. Fortunately there are bonuses and boosters that can get stuff for you for free and this does help. Even then the game is all about “go there and do that”, which we did not like that much. In addition everything is in 2D, but this is not really a drawback as the game is colorful and beautiful.

Will The Flintstones: Bedrock! appeal to you? In our opinion there are two prerequisites – you must be a fan of The Flintstones and then you must like this type of games. If this does not hold true for you, then you can easily skip The Flintstones: Bedrock! and lose nothing.

The Flintstones: Bedrock! is here on Google Play.
