Rovio’s Fight Bay recently showed that there surely is an desire for foods for high seas swashbuckling among the growing mobile online shooter market.
If you’d like something a bit more serious, strategic, and historically appear from your naval skirmishes however, World of Warships Blitz Hack could be for you.
Having just got into soft kick off 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 Cheats is from the same team that brought you Word of Tanks Blitz. Just like that game, it started out its life from PC before pointing its prow towards mobile-land.
Essentially, the overall game boils down to shooting true to life opponents and attempting to get the other team’s place by sailing into their flag zone. It’s just that you’re doing this with hulking multi-tonne battleships with the turning circles of, well, battleships.
As with its forerunner, World of Warships Blitz Hack isn’t your average run-and-gun action game. There’s a genuine sense of weight to its battle. It seems satisfyingly mechanical.
Every move you make here must be organized and thought through. The fact that you’re piloting huge ships means that it takes some time to get right up to rate and, crucially, turn. Aiming must be done slowly and gradually and delicately, lest you break free of the concentrating on reticule.
Thar she blows
The huge distance you participate your targets at plays a part too. You will need to skilfully lead your photos when participating a moving target, whilst getting the powerful torpedo on aim for (for the boats that have them) requires a dangerous combination to be both up close and side-on to your target.
That isn’t even taking into account the necessity to put out deck fires (there’s location-based harm here) and distribute repair crews to patch yourself up mid-fight.
Basically, fight in World of Warships Blitz is difficult. Once I shifted clear of the tutorial battles and into online battles against real players, I got repeated poundings from patient, wily opponents.
You really need to thing your movements through – charging straight into the fray without back-up is a sure-fire way to get blown from the water.
I have without doubt that World of Warships Blitz is likely to be a massive strike with a sub-sector of players, equally it’s going to alienate those after a quick blast.
I’m less certain the way the game’s freemium structure is going to pan out. I found the machine for purchasing new boats to be always a little opaque to state the least, and it remains to be seen how much of an edge splashing out real cash on the fancier models will give you.
Given the demanding and tactical aspect of the battle, though – not forgetting the developer’s pedigree – I’m self-confident that World of Warships Blitz will be an interesting skill-based multiplayer game when it finally hits the App Store proper.
