Gamelion has launched a new free to play shooter called Monster Shooter. The title is something of a double entendre: it is both a game where monsters are being shot, as well as a game where a monster is shooting. How can this be?! Players control the monster who is shooting, as it tries to rescue its beloved kitty who has been kidnapped by other monsters. Or perhaps they're aliens, as they escape with the kitty to the moon. The original monster follows along, because it has a spaceship too, and once it reaches the moon, it starts killing those other monsters. Using dual-stick controls, players exact some vengeance for the theft of this monster's kitty, shooting enemies in either a level-based story mode, or in a survival mode. Temporary perks can be earned by killing enemies, adding skills such as faster fire rates and laser sights. The game is free to play, and players can acquire MonsterBucks through either gameplay or in-app purchases to buy new weapons, ammo, health packs, and permanent upgrades. It's also a universal app, so monster shooting by a monster can be accomplished on the iPad's big screen. Monster Shooter is available now.
It's one thing for slimy, slobbering aliens to go around stealing livestock. It's something else entirely when they start pilfering cute little kitties. That's crossing a line. On the other side of that line is a vengeance-fueled engine of mayhem and destruction hell-bent on recovering his lost friend while making his antagonizers wish they were never born. Or spawned. Or whatever the heck aliens do to reproduce. And his name is Dum Dum.
Gamelion has recently announced Monster Shooter, a soon to be released twin-stick shooter. Players will blast their way through all sorts of alien scum on three distinct worlds, featuring a humorous story and lots and lots of shooting. If they grow tired of the plot or structured level progression, there's also a Survival Mode to put their skills to the test. And yes, the developers have mentioned that they're already working on additional content which will be released as free updates in the future.
There's no exact date for Monster Shooter's release just yet, but it should be out sometime this month. "... Within the next few weeks," is the best I've got at the moment. Still, it looks funny and sounds entertaining. That combined with a non-existent price (read: it's going to be free) makes it absolutely worth an inquisitive glance or two. Once it finally gets here, of course.
