NAIA Tanim Bala the Mobile Game - A Very Short Review

Count on the Filipino's unique sense of humor and indignation to come up with ways to cope with the current bullet planting scam happening at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport or NAIA.

Aside from the usual memes and video spoofs, guys at Kulit Games have launched a mobile game called Tanim Bala (Bullet Planting) as way of protesting the current criminal schemes in the Philippines international gateway.

Because I am such a curious guy I quickly logged into Google Play and downloaded Tanim Bala (all 15MB+ of it) and here's my very short review:

Game play - pretty simple but bit challenging. You just need to move right to left (or vice versa) to avoid those bullets thrown by corrupt Filipino airport officers. The pace picks up after a minute ala old school tetris so you better be alert. If you get caught with a bullet, you have to cough up $1,000 (yes, extorted) or else you end up in jail (aside from missing your flight).

Sound - Not bad considering the idea of the game is to stick a big middle finger at NAIA & Transport officers via dark humor. The old school jazzy feel reminds me of The Benny Hill Show end credits chase soundtrack. Funny yes but the real life version of the is very tragic and infuriating.

Replay Value - You can play this over and over again until they clean up the airport stink. The only time this game will lose any relevance is when the authorities finally lock up all the guilty ones involved in the bullet planting scheme which is very unlikely.

Story - Just help the traveler avoid the damn bullets or he pays $1,000 to abusive Philippine Airport officers...or he stays in jail. That's it.

Graphics - Very good in my view. Reminds me of Roxio's Angry Birds. Wish they can develop a sequel like: Angry Passengers.

My rating: 4 bullets. This will keep you busy while waiting for your flight...assuming you were able to avoid the real Tanim Bala scam at the airport.
