Get some free combat action with Reaper for BlackBerry 10

By James Richardson on 25 Sep 2013 06:48 pm EDT

Reaper for BlackBerry 10 is free to download - which you'll be pleased to hear. This will give you access to the first 10 levels which is more than enough to tempt you into buying the premium edition if you so desire. At the time of writing this Reaper is only supported by the BlackBerry Z10 and Z30 and I would imagine that is due to the style of game and the screen real estate. 

The concept of the game is quite simple - you need to move your character from left to right destroying all the bad dudes that get in your way. On the bottom left of the display you have two arrows that control your characters movements. Over on the right is where you need to get acquired with the gestures - although you will be given a tutorial the first time you play the game. This is where you can tap or double tap to jump, swipe down to swing your sword and also perform a downwards strike if you are in the air. 

As you'll see in the video there are various enemies you will need to combat. There are blue blobs which you'll need to strike various times depending on their size. Then there are flying evil bats which will require you to use your jumping moves to kill them. There will also be further bad guys on the ground - some who will fire at you which you'll need to dodge. 

Your 'life' is shown at the bottom center of the display and as you progress through the game you'll learn how to avoid losing as much as I did in the video. Once you complete a level you'll be taken back to the map where you would have started and in some cases you'll have a choice of the next challenge to take. 

The graphics and sound effects are great with Reaper and the game play is on par too. Go and grab the free version and give it a go - it's a bunch of fun.

Whoa! I never saw this in BlackBerry World. It arrived the same time as the Android version apparently.

Yep saw this in World earlier today and downloaded it, looks great!

Posted via CB10 on my white Z10 & lovin' it!

So, James, and crackberry team, how are things looking for the continued development of the gaming and consumer part of the platform now that bb is going private?

too early to say.
Imagine a company that has been developing a game for the past 6 months for BB10, obviously they will continue developing it to the end and release it, whatever BlackBerry becomes.

There's been some discussion of the game in the forums for both the PlayBook and BB10 versions. Best thing is that if you buy it on one device, it unlocks on the other, allowing for more experimentation in character builds and story choices.

Overall, I enjoy it more on the PlayBook than my Z10.

I bought the premium version of this app on my Z10...but how do I get it to download on my playbook for free? It's asking me to pay again, when I try to upgrade on my playbook.

I must have been half asleep when I first tried this as since I've re installed it (just Installed .1743) because the first level gives a nice tutorial showing how to play. Hexage is great I have purchased 2 games from them and love how good their free games are, radiant defense is awesome and looks beautiful on both my BlackBerry PlayBook and Z10

Hey blaze don't know if you can help me out with something. Got a pin message. Would like for you to have a look at it and give me your thoughts

At the time of this writing, Reaper is also supported on PlayBook, where it looks great :)

I grabbed it a few days ago. Playing for 10 seconds makes you want to buy the primo package. Very well done.

Agreed, this is a great game. I'd love to hear more about the game's background in this review. Did it originate on BB10? How long has it been around? What technology was used to develop the game?

I downloaded this game the moment they announced it, it is fun and entertaining.
I am a rpg gamer, and as a gamer I would say this game is worth the money
It is challenging as you play along

I picked this up about a week ago and have been playing it so much my thumbs are sore. I bought the fully upgraded version and just love it. The controls are the best of any mobile game I have ever played!

Great game, well worth buying come lvl 10. Awesome seeing brand new ones like this show up in BBW.

I'm very much disappointed that the Q10 isn't supported in much of these games! :(

Posted via my sexy Q10 (the BOLDER BOLD) :D

Already have it. And I must say it is a really great game. Great controls and graphics.

Had this for a week already.......nice game but it says you have to pay after level 10

Posted via CB10

Such a great game. I quickly forked over for the cash to continue at level 10

is there a way to download the premium version for playbook, w/o having to pay again? someone mentioned that if I paid for prem version on my Z10, then I could download the prem version on the playbook...or did I misread?
