Blood and Bacon is small pixelated First Person Shooter created by Grunge Games LTD. After its release in February of 2016 on Steam, its popularity has exploded. Some of you may recognize the game because of gameplay done by the famous YouTuber Markiplier, but have you ever wondered if the big YouTubers are really giving a great review? What if they are just praising a game in order to make money? Well that’s why I am here, to give you an honest review and plot overview from a gamer who just wants to game for the heck of it, like most of you!
You first start the game on Old McDonald’s farm, in Old McDonald’s barn, where you see The Farmer (Old McDonald) pinned to the wall by a pitch fork. The Farmer says he has a problem that he thinks you probably can’t handle, but he asks you anyway. Wild hogs are running wild on his farm, and he wants you to kill all of them. The only problem is that these hogs are quite unruly and seem to repopulate in massive numbers overnight. Throughout the game you spend each day killing new, more difficult hogs, while also unlocking new weapons to help you combat this crazy hog epidemic! Not only do you obtain new weapons, but you can unlock new expendables in the “Grinder”. The “Grinder” is exactly what it sounds like. It’s a massive grinding machine that you use by kicking all the left over hog parts into it, and watching eagerly as they grind them up for you to make more useful things such as ammunition and grenades. There are 100+ levels to beat with a mini boss every 10 levels and a standard boss every so often. This game almost seems to never end!
Personally I had quite a bit of fun playing this game. I would absolutely recommend this game to anyone who is looking to fill some time up or just likes to play cheap, easy games. This game is also great for a game night with friends because of its multiplayer option. Now here are my ratings for the game overall.
