App description: Scan barcodes, fight monsters, battle for greatness!

The Skeletal Dragon Abassy has released a horde of Monsters into the world. It is your mission to track down and defeat them. The most anticipated barcode scanning RPG game of all time, Barcode Wars takes the elements of your favorite RPG games and combines them with a fun treasure hunting aspect to give you a phenomenal gaming experience.

Traditional RPG purists will appreciate the hero and skill leveling components, while the kids (or kid in you) will love the skill spamming approach to epic monster battles.

Indie game developer Scary Bee LLC is committed to producing high quality mobile apps, and Barcode Wars is a unique 3D take on the classic pixel-art games of the 80s.

Distribute stat points as you level make magic attacks do more damage with Intelligence, dodge enemy attacks with Dexterity
Buy skills and level them up as you use them in battle to make them even more powerful
Original graphics, art, and awesome chip-tune soundtrack

Very mixed reviews on the play store. 3.5 from 146 users.

Scanning all those barcodes reminds me of when I hoarded CDs to farm monsters in Monster Rancher on the PSX.

I can totally see why it would receive mixed reviews, but it just reminds me of the Barcode Battler I had as a kid. Couldn't resist it haha.
