Twin Blades [rating: 4/5]
Bulkypix is coming up with some promising games for the iPhone and iPod touch this month, we are currently testing two upcoming games called Babel Rising and Magnetic Sport Soccer. Their latest game to go live on App Store is called Twin Blades.
Twin Blades is an addictive zombie shooting game in which your main object is to survive through different levels by either slashing or shooting zombies. The App Store has no dearth of zombie shooting games but, Twin Blades offers an engaging and fast paced gameplay which gives it a fresh look.
The game is set in a medieval era and the graphics are inspired by the popular Manga style anime. Twin Blades offers very well designed game environments to fight the zombies. As you slaughter the zombies they die in an animated manner depending on the choice of your weapon and blood splashes on the screen adding fun and gory element to the game. Great background music and bone crushing sound effects create an immersive zombie shooting experience as you try to take down as many zombies as you can.
You control the game character with a virtual analogue stick to either jump or go backward and forward. The attacks can be performed either by slicing the zombies or shooting with available gun type. As you use your weapons to shoot a zombie it drains your energy and you can easily replenish it by slicing a few zombies. If a zombie manages to attack you, it will suck your blood and reduce your life meter.
Every kill earns you one heart and these can be used to buy weapon and character upgrades. Weapon upgrades feature different types of guns while character upgrades can be used to improve slash damage, amount of life, life storage and more.
The game supports local highscores and Open Feint, allowing you to share your highscores, unlock achievements and compare your performance with your friends.
