You are Henry Blake. Well, you are in Backstab. In real life you’re still you, we’re still Life of Android and this is a news story about a game that’s just been released on Android Market.
As the aforementioned Henry Blake, your character is a broken man who’s life has been stripped away. Once a proud naval officer, you’ve been imprisoned, lost your fiance, and generally had quite a time of things. Most of us would set about rebuilding our lives and move on, but Henry is a vengeful chap and his sole mission in life is to take revenge on those who have wronged him. Which is handy, since it would be a pretty dull game if it was about hauling yourself up by your bootstraps and trying to find gainful employment in the current, tricky job market.
Backstab boasts – and we quote – ‘magnificent, full-3D environments’ and ‘an immersive, realistic world’. Essentially all you need to do is dive in and kill people with a variety of combo moves. And admire the scenery. Don’t forget to admire the scenery.
Backstab is available now for selected HD devices and priced at £4.36 on Android Market. We’ve thoughtfully included the trailer below for your delectation. We’re good to you…
