Rovio’s Struggle Bay recently confirmed that there surely is an desire for foods for high seas swashbuckling on the list of growing mobile online shooter market.
If you want something a little more serious, proper, and historically sound from your naval skirmishes however, World of Warships Blitz Hack could be for you.
Having just came into soft introduction in the Philippines, I decided to put the game through its paces.
The name might well have tipped you off, but World of Warships Blitz Hack is from the same team that helped bring you Phrase of Tanks Blitz. Exactly like that game, it started out its life out on PC before directing its prow towards mobile-land.
Essentially, the overall game boils right down to shooting real life opponents and wanting to take the other team’s place by sailing to their flag zone. It’s that you’re doing so with hulking multi-tonne battleships with the turning circles of, well, battleships.
Much like its forerunner, World of Warships Blitz Cheats isn’t your average run-and-gun action game. There’s a genuine sense of weight to its battle. It feels satisfyingly mechanical.
Every move you make here must be planned and thought through. The actual fact you are piloting huge ships means that it takes some time to get up to speed and, crucially, flip. Aiming needs to be done slowly but surely and delicately, lest you get away from the targeting reticule.
Thar she blows
The huge distance you engage your targets at plays a part too. You will need to skilfully lead your images when participating a moving goal, while getting the powerful torpedo on goal (for the ships which have them) requires a dangerous combination to be both close up and side-on to your target.
That isn’t even considering the need to released deck fires (there’s location-based damage here) and distribute repair crews to patch yourself up mid-fight.
Basically, battle in World of Warships Blitz is difficult. Once I moved clear of the tutorial battles and into online fights against real players, I took repeated poundings from patient, wily competitors.
You really need to thing your goes through – charging directly into the fray without back-up is a sure-fire way to get blown out of the water.
I have no doubt that World of Warships Blitz is going to be a massive hit with a sub-sector of players, equally as it’s going to alienate those after an instant blast.
I’m less certain how the game’s freemium composition will pan out. I came across the machine for purchasing new boats to be always a little opaque to say minimal, and it remains to be seen how much of an advantage splashing out real money on the fancier models will give you.
Given the demanding and tactical mother nature of the combat, though – not to mention the developer’s pedigree – I’m confident that World of Warships Blitz will be an interesting skill-based multiplayer game when it finally strikes the App Store proper.
