Default Guns 4 Hire

i just downloaded this game from the Rebellion games, and its not half bad lot of nods to the old shoot up desert games. Who can remember the famous most wanted card deck, yep similar thing is in this game.

You control a squad of 4 mechs, thus the title guns for hire. Taking cover while shooting at the bad guys. Movement and firing at targets is touch move.

I would say download it and figure out whether you can deal with the freemium set up. The game looks great and on a 4S the framerate is phenomenal. The gameplay is mostly about map exploration and tactical positioning. You can use special attacks (grenades, air strikes), set up turrets, and generally cause mayhem.

The big caveat is that the game is freemium through and through -- multiple currencies, timers for health recovery between missions, etc.

Looks like a quality title. But not gonna bother with it at all. Rebellion u most definitely got my money if you release it as a regular title and none of this IAP coins and whatever is in there.

Unfortunatly, the devs who are best at mischieviously implementing iapps make it so you don't know that you can no longer progress without spending money until you've already sunk 5+ hours into it.

Luckily I am not an obsessive completionist, and I am more than happy to walk away from a game if I feel it's trying to extort money from me .

I must be one of the "lucky" ones then that manage to grab it, wonder if this is another opps we leaked it out when we shouldn't of done ie manager of heros...mistakes.

One BIG issue the game tells you to use cover to protect your squad problem is you often have one guy standing in plain view taking hits.

Another and this game play, when you do the harder mission on the same level you eat though first aid kits like they was candy due to first big issue of your squad not taking cover. Lucky and if you willing to go the pain you can watch it seems unlimited videos and get 3,000 bucks a video...so a couple of them and you got yourself some more first aid kits but we shouldnt need to do this.
