That is an epic fail isn't it? but trust us there is a real back story to Bucketz that will be released as a comic you can freely download later on that explains why Bucketz is spelled with a Z!

Cheers

Was looking to get the game, not so sure what you do. I think things fall and you put it in a bucket. You try and keep it balanced? Looks good!

Hey there, yes keeping the balance intact is the main goal, but the action gets so much more challenging when more and more stuff is introducted to the mix. Especially wait for the minions to arrive on the scene starting with Dreamz Level Pack That's when it starts getting real hairy. Would love to hear your opinions when you try our game out!
