    I think it's great when a game has levels that may take a few tries to complete, because you aren't able to rush through it and be bored.

    Bucketz is everything that a physics puzzler should be: unique, full of personality, and plenty addicting.

    The gameplay is not only intuitive and challenging but it's also engaging. The graphics are crisp, the animations are beautifully done and I can't stop humming that catchy tune in the game. Go grab a copy of Bucketz to test your reflexes and see if you can become a master of balance. I can't think of a better way to spend two dollars.

    Throw in evil minions, boss fights and plenty of colorful eye candy, and Bucketz is one of the more intriguing games for smartphones and tablets, a smartly designed and cool puzzle experience that packs a solid challenge while offering up hijinks along the way. An essential pickup, indeed.

    A simple game of flicking and balance brought to life through great visuals, fun voicework, and a load of personality.

    Bucketz is a hyperactive game full to the brim of bright ideas, but its attempts at variation and humour can be a little overwhelming.

You get a FULL game for $1.99 The graphics are superb, the music is catchy, the game-play is great! PLUS you got voice acting in there and it is the best I've seen in an iOS game. The script writing is amazing it just makes you grin all the time! And sometimes you really laugh yourself out. It's a catch for that price. You definitely should get it. Expand

It looks really veryI am not a hardcore gamer and I play almost only on iPad and iPhone. So far this is one of the best games I've played. It looks really very very nice on the new iPad. It is a lot of fun. Some might not find it that good but I love the characters talking all the time. It just makes the game more rich. Gives you a feeling that you are trying to achieve something together. Especially the small green bucket talking about her teacher is really funny. Check it out for yourself. You won't regret it.
