From the makers of Partymasters and Kick The Buddy comes another fun and addictive game that you can confidently add on your mobile. Playgendary recently releases Pinatamasters, a colorful arcade game that is all about crazy pinatas! The game will give you the same vibes with Partymasters but in an entirely different gameplay. Pinatamasters is not an idle game but a target shooter that takes you to a series of exciting levels. The main objective is simple, smash the pinata using your trusty weapon and collect as many rewards as possible. If you think you can master this game effectively, feel free to explore Pinatamasters and see how far you can go.
The mechanics of the game are generally simple and easily manageable. As soon as the game begins, it prompts you right away to the first level. You will be dealing with the same scenario but will be facing against different Pinatas. Typically, a level is composed of a single hanging pinata above the game screen. Your character, on the other hand, is at the bottom and will actively move on both sides of the screen. To smash the pinata, simply tap the screen. You can also tap and hold for continuous shots but be mindful that each weapon comes with limited ammunition.
In order to clear a level, you must be able to destroy the pinata using the limited ammo you are allotted per level. Initially, you start off with a throwing knife but you can eventually upgrade it to a more powerful one. The process is actually very repetitive but as you progress, the pinata will become more durable and it forces you to make upgrades in order to destroy them. Obstacles will also appear from time to time which adds more thrill and challenge to the game.
Upgrade The Weapons
Pinatamasters will rely heavily on weapons and upgrades. In order to win this game, you must be able to unleash your weapon’s full potential. You can only do so by upgrading them. In between each attempt, the upgrade window will appear which allows you to improve your current weapon. An individual weapon can be upgraded to make them more efficient. There are two types of attributes you can improve including the Power and the Ammo. Power basically increases the fire rate which allows you to inflict more damage while Ammo increases the number of shots you can throw per attempt.
Both Power and Ammo are important attributes you need to upgrade to cope up with the game’s increasing rate of difficulty. Whether you have successfully destroyed the pinata or not, you will be able to reap rewards in the form of Gold coins which serve as the game’s virtual currency. If you have earned enough money, you can buy new types of weapons with stronger fire rate and bigger ammo capacity too.
Pop-Culture Reference and Boss Battles
Much like Partymasters, Pinatamasters also features some pop culture references. You will encounter popular figures like a Miley Cyrus inspired character, Trump and many others. Llamas and Unicorns are few of the most common characters you will encounter in this game. There are also some references to some famous games like the Creeper mob from Minecraft and the Ragdoll in Kick The Buddy game. It is also interesting to note that you can also upgrade your character and buy a new avatar.
Pinatamasters also features Boss battles which you will encounter from time to time. Boss battles are not really different to a normal level in terms of the gameplay. The only difference is the fact that bosses tend to become more durable compared to the standard pinatas. They also offer a bigger reward as well. Speaking of rewards, you can also take advantage of the ads. The game will offer you to double the reward by watching an ad in return.
Pinatamasters is perfectly characterized as a simple yet fun and addictive arcade game. It’s undeniably colorful and crazy and it works perfectly well even without a strong Internet connection. The only downside of the game, however, is the overwhelming ads that keep on popping after every attempt which can be very annoying at some point. Overall, despite the ads and countless times the game will pursue you to upgrade your account to a premium one, the game is still entertaining and fun to play with. Currently, Pinatamasters is available on both Android and iOS devices for free. Have fun!
