Burrito Bison is an incremental action game developed and published by Juicy Beast Studio as a browser game on 2011-02-17 and later ported to iOS. This is the first game in the Burrito Bison series and was followed up by Burrito Bison Revenge. It was written in Flash.

In the game, you play as a luchador who wears a bison mask who, while grocery shopping, is sucked into a bag a gummy bears and forced to wrestle for their entertainment. However, you launch yourself off the ropes and out of the ring, smashing fleeing gummy bears in an attempt to escape. The more of them you crush, the more of their money you steal, and the more upgrades you can buy.

Personal

I didn't see this game was it was released, but I did play Burrito Bison Revenge. After learning about the Flashpoint project, I began going back through my favorite Flash games and finding related games to play. I beat this one on 2022-10-20 with every upgrade, though I'm missing 2 achievements.

The game is free.

Good

  • The game's art is well drawn and animated.
  • The background music which plays as you're flying through the air is epic and fitting, and the sound effects really help.
  • As incremental games go, this one has a good balance where you can afford an upgrade every couple attempts. So, even though it's pretty repetitive, you always feel like you're making progress and increasing your distance.
  • The game is short enough that it doesn't outstay its welcome. It can be finished in about an hour.

Bad

  • A lot of the features in the later games (knowing where you are relative to the walls, keeping track of your best distance, etc.) are missed.

Ugly

  • Nothing.
