Wild Bullets offers up fast and fun wild west action, but it has a good amount of strange mechanics to navigate. Between the game’s unique movement and all of its unlocks, there’s quite a bit to take in.
With that said, we put in a good amount of time into Wild Bullets for our review, so we’ve got some tips to help out anyone that’s new to the game. See below for some of our best advice:
In case you missed it yesterday, Tencent and Activision announced they are putting out a new Call of Duty game for mobile. While details are pretty scant, they did put out a trailer (see above) and have a page where you can pre-register for the game, which might give you in-game rewards when the game actually launches.
Based on what's shown in the trailer, it looks to be a no-nonsense attempt to shoehorn every facet of mainline CoD games into a mobile package, which could be good. Though personally, I have my doubts. There are already precious few first-person shooters on mobile that are any good at all. Many of the best ones, like Call of Duty: Strike Force, have disappeared off the App Store completely. Meanwhile, things like Modern Combat 5 persist, which is a prime example of how to faithfully recreate the feeling of a big budget shooter on mobile while also leaning heavily into every worst tendency of free-to-play mobile design.
In light of all this news and speculation, I decided to dig back into our archives here and pull up a list of the best shooters on mobile. Many of these are not first-person shooters, mind you (as most of the good ones of those are gone), but they can still scratch your shooter fix while we all wait and see if Call of Duty Mobile is any good or not.
Fans of base builders rejoice! The hugely ambitious Fleets of Heroes has landed on Google Play to shake up the competition with its revised take on the popular genre, and developer Inner Hero also has an all-new mode in the works.
The game, first released on the App Store, has made quite the splash recently. For those not in the know, Fleets of Heroes offers all of the base building mechanics and ideas that we know and love while also bringing intense PvP, cross-platform battle and trading, and a unique approach to combat where players can assume direct control of hero ships.
What sets the combat apart really is those hero ships. These massively powerful units offer their own unique skills and abilities, allowing you to get the edge over any opponent if you’re smart about it. Of course, the AI units can also be directed, but the hero ships grant the game a more tactical edge.
So far, 2018 has been a pretty great year for mobile gaming. And, depending on how you look at things, you could say it's been the best year for shooters since the App Store first popped into existence. A lot of the plaudits for that have to go to one place - Shadowgun Legends.
It might not be the most original game in the world, but it took an idea, made it work in the palm of your hand, and then ran with it. It's a gorgeous-looking, slick-playing blast that's still thriving even now. So we thought it was high time to have another look at Madfinger's glorious sci-fi experience, and explain why it worked so well.
BlazeFury is a unique take on the shmup genre, so it’s pretty easy to be confused about how you should play it. Fear not though, dear reader. These tips below will make you a dogfighting champion in no time.
Missiles are the best
The best way to start progressing quickly in BlazeFury is to invest in the right weapons. Since enemies get harder and harder, and there’s no real way to fight back without upgrading your own arsenal, you want to be sure you’re making the best investments possible.
From my experience, the missiles are the best weapon for you to unlock and continuously upgrade. Not only do they pack a punch against enemies, but they also do a great deal of splash damage, which can help you take down enemies that you aren’t even targeting.
