Sanctum 2 blends the action-packed first-person shooter genre with the strategic elements of tower defense games, and as a "Jack of all trades, master of none," it isn't particularly strong as either. But to employ yet another overused cliché – the whole being greater than the sum of its parts – it nonetheless manages to be an intense and surprisingly fun multiplayer blast-fest.
Sometimes in the recesses of my subconscious I hear Jon St. John’s gravelly Duke utter out “Damn, those alien bastards are gonna pay for shootin’ up my ride” as his spaceship crashes in the distance. That might not even be the exact line, or the exact context it’s said in, but the memory has still stayed with me. I have fond memories of Duke Nukem’s charm, but not so much its gameplay.
First-person shooters are cool. Tower defense games are cool. It only makes sense, then, that putting them together will result in coolness squared, which is what Coffee Stain Studio is aiming for with Sanctum 2.
Brick-Force is a browser-based and/or downloadable first-person multiplayer shooter that has been doing the rounds for quite a while now. In more recent months the game's popularity has really picked up pace, especially when it launched via games portal behemoth Kongregate last month.
At first glance Enemy Strike resembles one of the billions of first-person shooter games available on the market today, but once you get past the gloss and dig into the gameplay, you’ll find that it actually has more in common with the arcade classic Time Crisis than it does with Halo. Well, except for the “classic” part.
The first thing you have to know about Offensive Combat is that its title is a deliberate play on words. Oh, sure, there are plenty of offensive tactics involved in the strategic sense, but the real joke is that Offensive Combat announces kills with cries of "Bam! Suck it!" and rewards offensive behavior like "teabagging" slain players. If any of that ruffled your feathers, then trust me: Offensive Combat isn't for you.
The setup for The Drowning is utterly intriguing. On New Year's Dead of 2011, 3000 dead blackbirds fell from the sky over Beebe, Arkansas. Nobody knew why, but before long it started happening all around the world. Some people believed it was the first sign of the end of the world, but they were dismissed as cranks–until the end of the world came. Now, ten years later, you're a survivor in a broken world, scavenging supplies and fighting off hordes of horrific creatures.
If you had to choose one type of combat in which to engage in today’s mobile gaming landscape - either modern or ancient - what would it be? Ancient!? You poor, poor sap. Everyone knows it’s modern combat that reigns supreme. And specifically, Gameloft’s Modern Combat series of highly polished war fighters. For those looking to repent for clinging to the past, however, I have good news: another Modern Combat is upon us.
