Honey Badger Don’t Care, the game based on the cartoon by the same name takes the phrase to a whole new level. MEDL Mobile and a “badass” named Randall teamed up to make a video game based on the hit video created by Randall last year.
Those who are not familiar with Randall should be warned that Honey Badger Don’t Care is littered with obscenities and while some are censored, others are not. Meaning, this is definitely not a game to buy for kids.
“You must eat”, chimes in Randall’s voice as the Honey Badger moves across an endless plain. Players take on the role of a Honey Badger moving along the endless deserts finding, and eating every animal in sight. As the players adventure continues they have their story narrated by Randall himself. Honey Badger needs to stay fed and that is the main conflict, eating enough to stay full and full of life.
The most noticeable part of the game is the narration Randall provides. At first it sounds a bit sassy, and a little annoying. Then Randall the narrator fully reprises his role from the video, giving nonstop advice while also yelling obscenities at the player.
Players maneuver through the game using a D-pad and a “maul” button used to attack the food. Each level is a day in the wilderness, with each one featuring a monstrous supply of wildlife and hungry Eagles, Jackals and Cobras just waiting to steal Honey Badgers meal.
Gamers looking for extras will be pleased with multiple unlockables scattered as well as an animated movie. There are Game Center leaderboards as well as in-game achievements. But, while the core gameplay of running around and eating everything in sight is exciting for a time, the repetition of enemies as well as activities and narration provide a limited experience.
Honey Badger Don’t Care is a blast to play, as long as strong language doesn’t offend. This is a quirky silly game with a cartoonish art style. For fans of the Honey Badger video, this is a must play featuring original narration and crazy dialogue.
