Wild Cat Gun Machine, Bullet Hell Cats – Octopus.ca

Beware of hairballs and hordes of enemies: the game wild cat gun machineDeveloped by Chunkybox Games and published by Daedelic Entertainment, it features a series of fast-paced, action-themed levels that will appeal to sci-fi fans and animal lovers alike.

On paper, everything is perfect for the success of the title: electronic music with a good rhythm, cartoonish visuals, enough monsters to diversify the pleasures, many weapons to unlock … a series of dungeons to explore, a history of ‘recovery’ rewards there, not forgetting to eliminate any form of Life forms, monstrous or mechanical, that are there. And after the level is “cleaned” by killing the main villain, it will be a matter of doing the same with the next level, and then the next one…

It is undeniable that, in terms of visuals, it works: everything is well drawn, the colors are vibrant, the monsters and heroine are well designed, etc. Normally, all of this would be a sign of a good game, or at least, a game we’d dedicate maybe 30, or even 60 minutes, just to clear our minds.

After all, we rarely care about dungeon crawleror to Hell bullet, for its narrative structure. So the rest should be solid enough for the whole thing to hold up without too much dramatic announcement in the final chapter.

The problem here is that wild cat gun machine It is just… plain. The music is good, yes, but it repeats in a few minutes, and you get tired of it quickly. As for monsters, their design is quite original, but when it takes fifteen or even twenty blows to kill some of them, we are no longer in shoot themor in dungeon crawlerBut in the simulation impatient. Oh, some special weapons can be effective at hacking even the toughest monsters, but these same weapons are only available with a limited amount of ammo. So the player can find himself in the middle of machine gun fire, enemies explode here and there, but suddenly, returning to the small gun can be useful, yes, but its power is minimal.

Another annoying aspect, the game allows you to “store” lives, a story that death does not, fortunately, mean the end of the game. However, it is difficult to understand how the resurrection system works. During a fight at the end of the level, for example, killing leads to three options: to start over at the place of our death, losing a life; Start again at the nearest control point, without losing any lives, or start over in the center of the map, which is the starting point for the level.

If we choose the first option, we are entitled to imagine that we will come to life side by side with the bad guy on duty, ready to resume the fight. However, the resurrection takes place rather Abroad From the battlefield, without recovering special ammunition, while the fight against the big bad must start from the beginning. why?

In short, wild cat gun machine It is a game that tries very hard to be relevant and interesting. And if he’s not in the whole field, the score is strong enough not to drop the title in the turnip category. But it’s also not complete enough to make you want to move on.
