Stash hundreds of ITEMS into your BUCKETZ, fight a horde of devious MINIONS, face relentless BOSSES, and utilize countless POWER-UPS while dodging increasingly challenging OBSTACLES throughout and maintaining BALANCE.

Will you emerge as the Master of Balance or watch the Bucketz tumble away into oblivion?


Prepare for split second saves and hours of adrenaline filled, edge of your seat gaming as you stow hundreds of items in the Bucketz, in a daring attempt to preserve equilibrium. Intuitive touch screen controls allows you to play the game as you like and develop your own play style: Showcase your acrobatics prowess or brawl your way to victory!

Play your way through an impressive array of adversities such as MINIONS that shape shift into lethal forms and smart BOSSES that dodge your fingertips, aliens that try to kidnap your Bucketz and fake items that morph your Bucketz into evil versions of themselves. Prepare for a surprise around literally every corner.

Utilize or avoid insane Power-ups (and downs) plus situational ones that don’t always work in your favor. Equip your Bucketz with EPIC UPGRADES to beat the odds.
