Shoot some dudes for free with Monster Dash for the BlackBerry PlayBook

By James Richardson on 4 Nov 2012 12:49 pm EST

As far as I am concerned there is nothing better than finding a great, fun game for the PlayBook that is free and Monster Dash is just that.

The plot is simple. You control an elite soldier who runs from left to right and as well as jumping over obstacles you must shoot the bad guys that are out to get you. With your lives shown as hearts on the top right of the screen you can pick up more along the way but fall down a hole and it is game over. In terms of weapons there are a selection to collect along the way. The flame-thrower is a personal favourite of mine.

One extra thing about the game I love is that with each new game you get a different background and also the enemies change. On one level you are up against Mummies! Not your mom sort but the ones with bandages!

And that's about it. Simple, great graphics and sound, and free. What more do you need. Go grab the download from the link below. Go on, what you waiting for?

Shoot some dudes for free with Monster Dash for the BlackBerry PlayBook


Hi James,

Have you noticed heavy audio and video glitches starting at 18 seconds until 27 ? They seem present at all resolutions.

Thanks for the review!


How about a Dell Voice app for the PlayBook?

I love this guys reviews. He sounds like the Geico Gecko. Just downloaded and its pretty fun. I like the way you get a new background every time you play. This is what Playbook needs, tons of free Android ad supported games to get the Playbook even more out there to the masses to compete with IOS. Thanks Android/RIM.
I’d rather be a Black Sheep than an iSheep any day.

I did down load this game and it didn't take long before I deleted it. I hate any apps that won't allow me to access it unless I agree to allow them permission to access my personal information!

An app that asks for your information is the ''mans'' way of selling your information so you can be spammed and/or tracked. It's sadly a way of controlling and keeping track of people. There's no reason for an app to ask for your personal information other than profiting from, and controlling people. There's gonna come a time when you won't be able to download an app without giving your information. Recently Playbook started to ask for your your permissions on certain apps during download. If you don't give it, then the app won't download. The further computers and tablets evolve, the less control we have, and the more corporations have. Perfect example; with early versions of Windows they always asked you permission to perform an update. Now the new systems perform updates behind your back, and even reboot your damn computer while you are using it. That pisses me off to no end.

And wouldn't you agree that the new behavior, where the app doesn't download unless you first approve of its requested permissions creates a situation where you have MORE control; not less? And where RIM is forcing app developers' attempts at shady background machinations out in front of your eyes for your protection? Seems like the design of the OS is making things trend toward more secure; not less secure.

@Bold_until_Hybrid_Comes. How does he get that out of what I said? I just said something is red, and he's commenting on why he thinks it being blue benefits us. I was saying it takes our control away as consumers and gives it to the devs. Some people can't read.

This game used to be my absolute favourite on the iPhone 3 when I had that. I've been waiting for it to come over to the Playbook for a long time now and glad to see it here. I think the game review could've been a bit better if James had explored the app a bit on his own before recording. I hope everyone does give this a try because I absolutely love this game.

UPDATE: after installing the game I realized that it's not the original. It's been ripped off and given the same name. Terrible game-play and even worse graphics. What a waste

Horrible graphics and game play. Garbage like this should not be ported over. Only makes rim look desperate for content. You need to give all access to your information to even play it. No Thanks. I deleted this crap game 5 min after installing it.

Any game that plasters annoying ads shouldn't even be allowed in the store. This is rim not ios. This game should have stayed on the platforms it was on. Sure you can port android but this was a horrible game review for a no star game.

I said it was an android port.... Far as I'm concerned RIM should remove the android player. 90% is crap ported over. This game is yet another perfect example.

Ask the developer to make the game using the native tools then! But don't bash RIM for the developer's choice. IT'S NOT RIM'S FAULT!!
