Bounty Hunter Black Dawn Review: Borderlands Copycat Hits Android, Has a Few Flaws (Video)
Who would have thought that a Borderlands clone would arrive on Android and be so appealing? The game is called Bounty Hunter Black Dawn and it’s available for free on the Play Store. We tested it on the Romanian tablet Evolio X7, a 7 inch slate with midrange specs..
The device is a FPS with RPG elements, some PvP action and a constantly only connection required to get most out of it. It’s a very well done Borderlands copycat, keeping all the aspects we liked about that title. We’ve got the cartoonish graphics, the huge amounts of items the enemies drop and the western atmosphere.
What we don’t have is a solid storyline or music. There are 4 classes to choose from in the beginning, including sniper, tank or support. Over 100 skills are made available in Bounty Hunter and you can distribute points towards these skills. Weapons and items are associated to item slots in your bag and you’ll often run out of those, once you pick up so many items.
You can sell them, equip them or drop them, if you want. In multiplayer you can do a 4 person a co op or an 8 person PvP battle. Sadly, sometimes the game forgets to render some textures, allowing you to see enemies through walls or get shot through them. The AI is kind of dumb and battles are very repetitive.
Still, this game has to be praised as an achievement, since any Borderlands copycat is an impressive thing to have on a tablet. We give this game a 9.3 out of 10 and you can download it here.
