I’ve talked about the awesomeness known as Bag It! On several different occasions and even gave the quirky little Android game a solid 10 in our full review last year. If you love the game as much as I do today’s you’re lucky day as the fine folks at Hidden Variable Studios have released another update and it’s a nice one to say the least. I normally don’t cover updates on games or apps unless it’s a big one, and the 2.3.1 update of Bag It! definitely qualifies as a big one. As expected there were a few minor bug fixes, but fans of the game are also getting another new game mode known as Seedy’s Booty. Seedy’s Booty is a challenge mode that brings some Match-3 style of gameplay into the game as you’ll race against the clock to match as many groceries as possible. You’ll get coins that can be used for power-ups to further improve your score and you can try and beat your buddies’ best scores on Facebook. There are a few other surprises in store in the form of Pirate ships and Sea monsters, but the biggest surprise for me were the exploding graphics. When you make a match in Seedy’s Booty the characters come to life in full 3D and explode off your screen… literally.
I actually hadn’t played Bag It! in awhile, but thanks to the new update I’m back to bagging up those quirky groceries again, and I’m having just as much fun now as I did when the game was released. The newest update is a good example of how to freshen up a great game, and bring those who’ve already purchased Bag It! quality free updates. If you haven’t already played Bag It! you’re missing out on one of the best and most original puzzlers out there, so we highly advise you to check it out if you haven’t already. There’s a free version of the game you can try or you can pick up the full version of Hidden Variable Studios Bag It! on sale for a limited time for only $0.99.
