So I was looking for game on a gaming website and I came across Dead Ahead:zombie warfare by Mobirate. It looked interesting but actually was very boring. When I first played it, I remember seeing one thing that really caught my eye.
An that was the energy system. An I rolled my eyes in frustration.So I didn’t really expect much. I got onto the map and seeing multiple locations with almost about half or more being unexplorable an costing “fuel” ,the game’s energy system. An i rolled my eyes in even more frustration. Even though you can get fuel by loot crate or watching ads by that still wasn’t enough for me.
An half of the map was like this:
An to make matters worse to do missions take two fuel each, out of twenty. An the funny thing those fuel cans you see in the picture also unlock new areas that can’t be unlocked by completing missions.
An each fuel can takes nine minutes to replenish. It was if the game was giving me the finger for trying to play it but it is a free game trying to be an arcade game in the modern era.
In the modern era people own the device that their playing. An in the old era of arcade machines people didn’t. An a company lived and died in the arcade era by making a good or bad game.
An this game isn’t good. An because i own my device that i am playing. This game telling me i can’t play it without waiting makes me irritated and angry.
An the combat wasn’t any better basically the game played itself. An it was very simplistic. Here is a screenshot of the combat system.
On the left side highlighted by the orange box is points and rage. Points are gained over time and is used to buy troops that take time to deploy & rage is gained by killing zombies and buying barrels an medic kit. An the black bar is just how much coins i had at the time.
The objective is simple get the troops to the barricade. An start smashing it, While keeping zeds from attacking the bus.
An that was very boring for me. The combat was automatic and I really did nothing besides buying troops. It just wasn’t exciting for me.
Oh yeah it also has that thing that chases you in alot of endless mobile runner games. After a certain period of time. A stampede of fast runing zeds will appear and those zeds destroyed my bus causing me to lose. An waste fuel on that mission. I wasn’t very happy about it. 😦
An the next thing that i found out
is that troops also required random items to level up with coins as well. Which was another middle finger by the game(an the bus required coins to upgrade too). There are ways to get it but i am very sure later on. It gets harder, the most efficient way is to buy loot crates for it.An i don’t like that. As of now i am uninstalling the game.
•There are none.
•Simplistic combat system
•Energy bar system
Things I forgot to mention
•The bus also uses items to upgrade stats.
•To get new troops you most pay for them. An level up to unlock them by completing missions for exp.
•Rage at maximum makes the bus driver aka sheriff shoot a minigun.
•There are different type of zombies.
•There is a trader that you can se items for coins or buy from but its only three items.
•There is also daily rewards but its random.
