gives wolf3d vibes

Smooth and clean retro action just like Wolfenstein 3D! Great control stick and options for different styles but I liked the default method the best. The accellerometer tilt and straffe if cool too but I preferred the simple default control. The nice thing is you can choose to go back and play any level or chapter at any point - but its good to start from the beginning to build up an arsenal!

As a player of many FPS games, i can say that this is an AMAZING game! Don't be fooled by the graphics, this game is OUTSTANDINGLY FUN! I rarely ever enjoy a mobile FPS like this!
Retro style. Good music. Cool enemies. Fun levels. Definitely get this!

Instant ads and poor graphics

This game looked mildly amusing and had good reviews so I decided to check it out. As soon as I selected a level— and before I even got to try it- an ad played. A long, un-skipable video ad.

Needless to say, it wasn’t a great way to start a game. Once you lose you get another ad. Graphics are mediocre at best, and gameplay isn’t much better. Best to avoid unless you like watching a lot of ads.

Developer Response ,

We hear you - thanks for letting us know. A new update has corrected this and now all ads are skippable after 5 seconds. We hope you’ll give it another try. We appreciate your feedback and supporting Indy developers.
