Kick the Buddy No Mercy Review
US iTunes, App Store, iBookstore, and Mac App Store

Kick the Buddy: No Mercy is a game created by Crustalli. It costs $.99 and is available on the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.


The objective of this game is to “kick” or hurt Buddy. You can do this by using various weapons, objects, guns, or explosives. The more the buddy is hurt, the more money you’ll earn, which can be used to by better weapons.

There’s also a slot machine which allows you to spin three slots for the possibility of winning new elements. Eventually your spins run out, but you can buy more through in-app purchases.

The benefit of a game like Kick the Buddy: No Mercy is that you can just let your imagination run wild. Explode, destroy, fire, shoot freeze, or even send the Power of Gods down upon Buddy. This game also acts as a stress relief method. Releasing stress through a $.99 game is a lot better than releasing it in other ways that you can be held accountable for.

You can even choose the face of Buddy from your Photo Library for the ultimate stress reliever.

The Good:

This game’s a good way to lower blood pressure or kill some time when you’re bored. There are plenty of items and unlockable things to make sure you never get bored of Kick the Buddy.

The Bad:

Some people might find games like this repetitive, while others might find them addicting. Personally I’m not entertained by games like Kick the Buddy, and wouldn’t spend my money on them. But you might have a different opinion.


If the idea of beating away at a defenseless Buddy with weapons, acids, explosives, and other things sounds fun to you, then this game will probably be a good investment. However if just the idea of playing a game like Kick the Buddy makes you shudder, you should steer clear of it.
