It looks like Overkill fans will have to wait a little bit longer for Overkill 3. The mobile shooter by Craneballs has been pushed back into next year as the developers wanted to take an extra few months to refine the game and release something more polished.

One of the issues that led to the decision is the tutorial. Craneballs is working hard on creating a guide that can stand up against the 30 levels that are included. The all-new level design is also a stumbling point. Creating so many non-repeating levels is taking longer than anticipated, but the extra effort going into making them means getting a better product. They are also planning on doubling the number of levels and bosses to give you more bang for your buck.

Craneballs has been listening to their fans as well. By request they are adding more realistic blood spatter, enemy-hit animations, and bigger explosions. They’re also adding live-event cooperation missions so that you can play with your friends as a team. The teams that top the leaderboards will be rewarded with fame and in-game prizes.

So while Overkill 3 may be delayed until February of 2015, there will be even more to look forward to when the game is finally released.

Have you ever wondered what it would feel like to shoot an AK-47?  How about a gigantic RPG?  As hard as it would be to imagine what handling heavy artillery such as this would be like, games are a window into the lives that gamers would never otherwise get the chance to experience.  Filling in our void for gun-lust is the new universal app, Overkill, which promises to give you a shooting gallery style sneak peak into life on the surviving side of the trigger.

As mentioned before, the game is designed in a structure similar to what might be found in a common shooting gallery, but this is just a basic surface level observation on a game that has more going on under the surface.  For example, there are twelve different weapons in your arsenal, all of which can be upgraded and modified into ultimate tools of destruction.  Here is the developer’s official breakdown of the title:

In the near future the world has collapsed. You have been hired as a mercenary to fight against the enemy. Be paid for everything you kill and destroy and buy new weapons or upgrade the current ones. 12 weapons (incl. AK-47, M4, SCAR, RPG) with upgradable Scopes, Stocks, Cartridges, Barrels and Frontmouths gives you over 100 combinations! Fight through 80 waves and 4 extra Hell waves in 4 locations. — VIA Overkill Development Blog

The craziest part is that this game is available for free in the App Store.  That’s right, we said FREE!  All you will need to do is tolerate an ad or two from time to time, and your amusement could be endless.  Overkill isn’t going to be reinventing the wheel anytime soon, but when you are charging nothing for a download, normally fan goodwill should be available in droves.  Plus, with all those customization options, you shouldn’t be running out of unique experiences anytime soon!

FREE!
