Is It Any Good?

App enthusiasts have come to expect ads in their games in recent years, but this poorly made game brings advertisement to a whole new level. Baseball Boy! is more a series of ads with short gameplay interruptions than the other way around. Play for five seconds, watch an ad for five to 30 seconds. Want a free upgrade to your hitting power? Watch an ad. Want to double your earnings on this round? Watch this ad. It's frustrating at first, maddening after a few times, and drives you to fits of rage after 10 minutes. Of course, there's a $3 option to not see ads, but the gameplay isn't worthy of a $3 fee. It's a basic Home Run Derby with poor graphics, no story (or sound), and no heart. It's a game that everyone -- not just kids -- should avoid.
