Game Impressions

Fun dual stick side-scrolling shooter, the gameplay definitely has a good action feel to it. Lots of shooting and yelling and stereotypical nazi german accents going on as they attack you and you run and gun your way through them. I really dig this game, the dual stick controls are like something you'd normally see in an overhead shooter game but they work very well in this game, in many ways the aiming is better and more accurate than most other sideview shooters, you can even angle your shots. Now the character can move from side to side quickly with the left stick, but he also can move up, down and around in the environment he's in, so it doesn't feel like you're stuck on a side move only ledge so to speak. The character is agile, which is good for dodging enemies/bullets, movement is smooth. Throughout the game you pick up plenty of enemy weapons/ammo and can use many different weapons by switching to them during gameplay. Occasionally defeated enemies will drop health boxes for you to pick up as well.

Included in the game is a campaign mode and a skirmish mode. Each level of the campaign mode requires you to complete a set objective without running out of health to finish the level, the campaign never seems to get boring because each level has you fullfilling a different task. The game features a perk system, every few levels you can level up certain attributes/weapons to make your character stronger/better as you advance. At the end of each stage or level you will be shown a stats screen of how well you did, your accuracy, # of enemies killed, and total score. You also have the immediate option to retry the level if you want.

In the skirmish modes you can choose to play game types survival, rocket rampage, or last stand. Survival mode is fairly difficult in this game, and covers amount of kills and distance. Rocket Rampage is basically is like a survival mode with a bazooka. The last stand mode is a similar type of surivival gameplay to the first 2. The enemy A.I. seems a little more difficult in the skirmish modes than in the campaign.

I would say the graphics and animations in this game are pretty good in a cartoony way. I commented previously about the sounds, they are good as well, with some decent background music going on, enemies yelling and plenty of gunfire/action noises. The gameplay is solid in this game mainly because of the controls and the fact that the game runs smooth, at least on my 3GS phone where I play it on it does. I recommend this to anyone who is interested, plenty of fun.

Here's a few suggestion for improvement:

The game could use a few more enemy types added. Also, once you die on any level you are forced to restart from the beginning, so in a way this game is like a pickup and play arcade type game. It would be nice if some sort of save system or level select screen were added so once you've unlocked the levels you could continue where you left off, the perks you gain should be kept too once unlocked. So its obvious a few things could be added in an update to make the game a little better, but so far, as it is now its pretty darn good.

I thought they were ok, I mean its not like you need to go for headshots or anything, its more of an arcade game.

We definitely aimed for a quick pick up and play game not focused on the technical side of things.
