Review Big Hunter

Brandon Girod
Cool minimalistic aesthetic, dynamic objectives, good controls
No environmental variation
You’re a hunter in a tribe. All of your village’s women and children look to you with hope and teary eyes as you set off on your journey to find and poke angry mammoths with tiny sticks until they die so you can feed your starving tribe. Big Hunter for Android is secretly a depressing struggle of tug and war as you fight for your survival and everyone back at home.
A really quick tutorial will teach you about the game’s surprisingly simple mechanics. You can tap and hold the screen to back up and then you can use your left finger to aim and throw your spear. In each level, you have a limitation you have to work under while trying to deplete the mammoth’s health by hitting it with spears.
Sometimes you’ll have a time limit in which you must kill the mammoth before the clock runs out. Other times, you’ll only have a certain amount of spears you can chuck at the mammoth. To make things difficult, the mammoth’s giant tusks act as impenetrable shields that protect it from every spear you lob. Hitting the mammoth in the body does a flat 10 damage, but hitting it in the head will net you 30 damage which compounds with every consecutive headshot.
Initially, I really loved the look of this game. I’m drawn in by minimalist designs with strong contrast and this game does it really well. It’s incredibly simple yet powerful at the same time. Unfortunately, nothing ever changes in this game except the few objectives.
Despite its limited palette, Big Hunter is actually a pretty fun arcade game. It has a good amount of dynamic objectives to keep you wondering what’s coming next and I still really love the aesthetic. It’s totally unique.
