A very simple game that offers fast and energetic gameplay with a rocking metal soundtrack.
The control scheme is very simple and easy to use akin to The Binding of Issac's WASD and spacebar controls which in that regard its easy to learn but hard to master.
The goal of the game is to cause as much carnage as possible racking up your score until you meet your untimely demise as you will have to survive and slaughter swarms upon swarms of demonic hellspawn all after your blood. Armed with a variety of demonic powers and upgrades you will be laying waste to everything in your path. Just don't get overwhelmed, 1 hit from any creature is your timely death and considering you got only 3 lives to last you to the end of the game, you better make them last.
The mechanics are very simple and unfortunately the game also suffers from the simplicity. The game only has 3 total maps which can grow rather stale over time. The character roster while hilarious in some aspects with its tongue in cheek nature don't really play to differently from one another.
The game on the other hand offers a fast style arcade twitch shooter with enough blood , guts and metal to keep gorehounds and metalheads at bay. But if you are not a fan of metal, the concept might turn some people off from the game but it does have its place and it does have its market.
Some bands on the soundtrack are some notable bands in the metal community such as God Forbid, Between The Buried and Me, Holy Grail and many more.
One thing I think the game lacks is the re-playablity factor. Since all the scores are exclusive to you the player you are not really encouraged to continue playing even if it to unlock a character. Also the lacking presence of an online leaderboard system is questionable in this stage of release but I'll have to wait and see if anything comes of it.
Overall, if you are into metal and have a thirst for violence. Look no further, This game is for you and for $3 its a ******* steal.
Since I was a young boy, playing Fallout 1 and 2 really struck a cord with me. Fallout Tactics helped scratch that itch, and then, darkness. I had nothing to help me scratch my itches. I was lost and alone, confused and angry. And then I stumbled upon this gem. It gives me everything I want from a game that feels like a classic Fallout game without being a blatant rip off. The graphics and everything are good and all, but the mechanics. The character creation and development are what snagged me. Then you go and you made it fun to play too. I was hooked.
One of the best fan-games ever made!
Pokemon Generations... Just the name is great! Pokemon Generations - or PokeGen - is a Pokemon game like no other. The graphics are IMPECABLE, and the gameplay is off the hook. A 3-Dimensional skirmish-style Pokemon game is something that's been requested since the early days of Pokemon. Sure, we've seen incantations on the Nintendo 64, Gamecube, and Wii, but none of those even hold a candle to this beauty!
Despite it's massive potential, that's the problem: it's only showing potential. The game has the workings to be the best Pokemon game in the history of the franchise, but the game is currently VERY simplistic and updates are only semi-frequent and, most of the time, trivial at best.
Now, one could argue that small updates every two weeks is way more than most fan-games see, and they'd be right. The problem is that the developers of PokeGen have opened a Pandora's Box of awesomeness that they may be unable to close, because players of a game of this caliber would typically expect updates at least once a week for the grade of update we're currently getting. A two-week wait time would imply a much bigger update.
Despite all of that however, PokeGen is an incredible step in the right direction, and hopefully that direction leads to a full version that will give any Pokemon game we've played and loved a run for it's money!
The game defiantly needs multiplayer and better transportation like bikes, cars, etc
also more guns and melee weapons like swords and machettes.
you guys are smart so I trust you'll import these.
but none the less, I've literally played 40 hours of this game, died so many times, and can still play it and never get bored!
I give this a three; Here's why
Good system -- few/no bugs
Full game -- not a "minigame"
Crude humor -- offensive
Too linear -- few "real" options
Poor execution of ideas
No hook -- Can't get into it.
Only because of the duration and lack of bugs did I not rate it a 1.
