Review - Bum Tropics
Product Category: Gay Sex Games
Platform: MS Windows XP/Vista
Bum Tropics is one of the most advanced adult 3D Adult Gay sex games on the planet. Play in any fantasy with life-like virtual sex the only video game on the planet where you can personally fuck 10 different porn studs in one game. These guys looks so good, you'll swear that they're really there! In Bum Tropics you can choose your avatar hair color, eye color, skin color, and unlock special items which will pimp out your virtual porn star with your own personality.
Bum Tropics is the all male gay sex game version of Pink Tropics. This game, one of the few offerings in the micro niche comes from Soma Vision, known for their great marketing.
Just like the sister game, Bum Tropics takes place inside a hotel and focuses on finding and banging as many sexually partners as possible. In this case, it just so happens, that your character and all your partners are male.
Upon launching the gay sex game you are given the option to modify your avatar or just jump right into the game.
There aren't a plethora of customizations available but you can modify you face, skin, and eye color. The game offers further customizations such as crazy hair styles, bling, and penis enhancements; these are available through various game unlocks.
Your character starts the gam in the hotel lobby. Graphics are ok, but far behind GayVilla 2. Like most 3rd person style games, you control your avatar with the mouse and d-pad combination. Controls are not very accurate but are workable after a little trial and error.
If you want to see an area map you need to walk up to the concierge desk. The hotel has 10 rooms on two different floors. As you have just started the game you will only have access to 3 rooms, in which you'll find three different male characters that want to fuck you.
To have sex with any of the aforementioned men you need only walk up to the appropriate door and choose "YES" when prompted to bump uglies.
In Bum Tropics all the characters have a the same body size and shape, but they do have different ethnic backgrounds, hair color, and so on. Each suite is unique so at least the scenery does change. Want some dirty gay bathroom sex, no problem!
Like game play in all Soma games you simply select from a menu of about 8 different sexual acts/positions and progress through a series of timed button clicks to score points and complete each successive level.
In Bum Tropics some improvements have been made in that there are much more interesting positions than in previous offerings. In addition, the camera can be set to rotate around the action in real time for a much better view.
Points are scored by clicking the mouse button is exact time with the sperm graphic, yes you heard me right. The graphic is essentially a shot of sperm shooting into (not out of) a giant penis. It's a bit of a bizarre image, you'll have to see it to believe it.
Every series of clicks takes around a dozen or so good or perfect clicks to complete. Each scene is made up of about 4-5 complete series. At the end of the scene you will be rewarded with a nice cum shot.
Music and sound effects are vastly improved or games that predated Bum Tropics. A nice variety of music is provided throughout the game and the guys will talk dirty to you while you do the deed. Each guy has a unique voice but their comments are completely random and have nothing to do with the action going on at the time.
One significant bug I've found is that hitting the Esc button closes the game instantly. I guess this serves as a good "boss" button but can cause you to lose all your game progress if you're not careful.
As you gain "experience" in this gay sex game you will unlock more suites/characters, and also the aforementioned upgrades for your avatar.
As you progress through the game you will gain levels of experience which unlocks more girls. At the same time you will earn points which can be spent on the aforementioned avatar upgrades. It's worth pointing out that while your character both gives and receives oral he does only top. If you are a bottom, or would just like to have your avatar be a bottom you are out of luck for now.
- Significant improvement over previous Soma games
- Good quality music and sound
- Simple and straight forward game play
- One of the few gay sex game offerings
- Not up to standards of GayVilla 2
- Controls are a little glitchy
Bum Tropics is straight forward gay sex game. Soma hasn't exactly been up to the bleeding edge of technology up until now, but this game is truly a great leap forward for them. While Soma is still in catch up mode this game is substantially better than some other products in their line up.
The 3-day trial is definitely worth checking out if you want something with a short learning curve and big dicked gay guys. Still not fantastic but there really aren't that many alternatives to choose from.
