Sometimes the only solution to successfully dealing with the trials and tribulations of day-to-day life is not to silently supress it all in a civilised way, letting it all build up and rot inside you before one day it explodes in a manner the papers refer to as ‘tragic’ and ‘avoidable’, but to blow off all your steam publically in a shower of stranger-shredding shells. Welcome to Blitz Brigade…
Okay, obviously we endorse the idea of going postal properly in no way whatsoever, but some might say (perhaps not Tim Berners-lee) that this is exactly what the internet was invented for – allowing the stressed and the psychotic alike to enter an online arena of frantic, vivid, non-stop cartoon violence to unleash hot-lead on an array of similarly minded sociopaths from across the globe. That and porn.
Which is exactly what this excellently remorseless shoot ’em up offers (the, erm, former that is), an epic multiplayer that pits you against up to 11 others in a brilliantly animated blur of bullets, across countless detailed and colourful backdrops, through a WWII battle royale between the Axis powers and the Allies. And yes, you get to pick which side you’re on.
The more kills you make the more points you gain for upgrades, but being a freemium in-app purchases are also available to make you a leaner, meaner shooting machiner without all the hassle of having to work your way up, letting you unleash wholesale slaughter whether holding your ground or bringing death from above while hovering in a helicopter.
With hundreds of weapons available, the ability to taunt your opponents and over 120 missions to complete, if you’re left a little pent up by people, download, lock and load and let it all out.
THE BOTTOM LINE
More fun than a whole barrelful of heavily armed monkeys, Blitz Brigade is utterly addictive joyous chaos that’ll keep you coming back for more and a breath of fresh app air where in-app upgrades are worth every penny – now how often can we say that?
