Back at the Barnyard Slop Bucket Games
Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
Excerpt: I was pretty excited to hear about a sequel to Barnyard on the Nintendo DS. Back at the Barnyard Slop Bucket Games continues from the movie, and has the player take on the role of a new cow. The Barnyard animals want to hold their own sporting events (like Whac-A-Rac, Chicken Launch, etc). Back at the Barnyard Slop Bucket Games has two phases. The first phase is collecting the items around the farm, and the second phase is playing the different events.
NDS Review - 'Back at the Barnyard: Slop Bucket Games'
26 September 2009
Summary: In Back at the Barnyard: Slop Bucket Games, players will be able to play as one of their favorite characters from the TV show and compete in a series of wild and wacky sporting events. Players will compete in the first annual Slop Bucket Games - a series of wacky, fun, sporting events and reinvented classic arcade games with barnyard motifs.
Excerpt: What do you get when you cross a cow, a pig, and a wayward chicken, then throw in some tomatoes for good measure? THQ and Firemint's Back at the Barnard: Slop Bucket Games , of course. From a graphical standpoint, Slop Bucket Games is nearly a diamond in the rough. While the main environment that you walk through isn't exactly jaw-dropping, some of the mini-games look outstanding.
Conclusion: Back at the Barnyard Slop Bucket Games was somewhat entertaining for the couple of hours I played it, and younger kids may enjoy it more, since it might take them longer to beat. Younger children may also enjoy going back and playing the mini games over and over, but I don’t see myself touching the game again. Having only 10 mini-games available with not much else to do for $29.99, really seems like THQ and Nickelodeon were trying to cash in on the Barnyard license...

Excerpt: you must best the cast of the Nickelodean series across ten wacky events to earn the ultimate golden bucket. Unfortunately, THQ doesn't bring its A-game in utilizing the full personality of its license.
