Is this a Crazy Bill add on? Search only comes up with it.

I'm seeing this on the store, is it just a lite version of Crazy Bill or a free version?

It's Crazy Bill, but with some changes. Kinda feels like Crazy Bill v2.0

Changes I noticed in 2 games are as follows:
1. One touch tap controls. Instead of the manual shooting, now shooting is automatic.
2. When you are about to get on a floor with a Zelebrity, there will be a sniping mini game first. Tilt to control, tap to fire. It's a nice change of pace, but the tilt kinda puts me off.

The changes are ok, but i think i'd stick to Crazy Bill. Havent tried playing a third time. Sorry havent played more to see what else is changed or added.

It's free, so yeah, check it out. Crazy Bill was really good, so if you havent played that, you can play this.

Every time I get to the sniper mini-game, I find the zombie, shoot him/her as many times as possible and then my game is over.

The Game is sadly currently slightly bugged (Crash Log can be found here) but also some bigger Ads seem to hide more then they should:


Rating:

3/5

Note:

Changed my Rating from 1/5 to 3/5 since the oversized Banner seem to only appear in some Regions where iAds/iMob is generating that Way more Income and that`s something the Developer can`t influence or direct +

The current Crash to the Desktop will get fixed in the next Update same as the current Banner Size will get replaced with a smaller One that doesn`t hide anything behind a Full Size Banner but actually does appear below the Timer & Ammountion.

Yes. Smashing Zelebrities is very similar to Crazy Bill but we've aded some cool new features with the "Zelebrities" and now the game is more direct: No in-game shop because all items unlocked from minute zero and the game is now 100% free without inApp's and only one optional inApp to remove ads.

@Sanuku: Can you try with a simple reset of your iPad to fix the problem of your crash

@Sanuku: What's the problem with this banner? The banner never hides the famous (i can see the famous in your scree-shoot in the top/left side) and if you don't like the banner you can pay $0.99 once and forget all the ads for ever.

Good Morning. I tried the Game a bunch of times and it always crashed when the Game wanted to load up a Video Ad. The Log File seem to have always come up with the same Error Message. I restarted the iPad Air and the Crash did disapear and instead the Game did showed a Video Ad.

The Banner does overlay currently the Picture of the Zombie you have to shoot down, how much time & ammunition is left.

If someone isn`t aware of whome they have to kill they will probably search through the Screen without actually knowing what to do or just till the timer runs out or no ammunition is left

To make it easier for those that don`t know what I`m talking about:

How it should be:


How it is currently:



The Game has already one Ad that does appear always during the Run Phase + the Video Ads but why not disable the Banner for the Shooting Part or put it on the upper Part of the Screen where it isn`t hiding anything .

I just don`t understand why someone would hide behind a Ad a Feature (Timer, Ammunition, Picture of the Zombie you have to kill) of the Game?!
