What could be more all-American than roundhouse kicking Commies to death in the streets of rural Texas?
Developed by Ludigames, the controls are intuitive, but difficult to master. You move Chuck either through the touch-screen joystick or by tilting the phone during the driving and flying segments of the game. Operating the joystick does take a bit of practice, however.
The best part about this game is undeniably the combat.
The game is more or less an ironic tribute to the modern pop culture myth that is Chuck Norris. The developers even tied in the recent Internet phenomenon of "Chuck Norris Facts," a list of hyperbolic statements about Norris's incredible machismo (example: Chuck Norris is allowed to talk about Fight Club). When you start a level or die, one of these facts flashes across the screen. The graphics are delightfully cartoonish and the sound effects are as cheesy as you'd expect. Chuck Norris: Bring on the Pain! basically feels like something you would have played on your Sega Genesis in 1992.
Once you get the hang of the controls, Chuck Norris: Bring on the Pain! is not only uncomplicated to play but perfectly ridiculous in its campiness. At $1, the game is cheap, fun, and an extraordinary time-waster.
