Rovio’s Struggle Bay recently confirmed that there surely is an cravings for high seas swashbuckling among the list of growing mobile online shooter market.
If you want something a bit more serious, tactical, and historically appear from your naval skirmishes however, World of Warships Blitz Hack could be for you.
Having just inserted soft release in the Philippines, I thought I’d 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 brought you Expression of Tanks Blitz. Just like that game, it began its life from PC before directing its prow towards mobile-land.
Essentially, the game boils down to shooting real life opponents and attempting to record the other team’s place by sailing into their flag area. It’s just that you’re doing so with hulking multi-tonne battleships with the turning circles of, well, battleships.
As with 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 needs to be designed and thought through. The fact that you’re piloting huge boats means that it takes a while to get right up to rate and, crucially, convert. Aiming needs to be done gradually and delicately, lest you get away from the focusing on reticule.
Thar she blows
The huge distance you employ your targets at plays a part too. You need to skilfully lead your pictures when interesting a moving aim for, while getting the powerful torpedo on aim for (for the boats which may have them) requires a dangerous combination to be both close up and side-on to your aim for.
That isn’t even considering the need to released deck fires (there’s location-based harm here) and distribute repair crews to patch yourself up mid-fight.
Basically, battle in World of Warships Blitz is difficult. Once I transferred free from the tutorial battles and into online fights against real players, I got repeated poundings from patient, wily opponents.
You really need to thing your techniques 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 strike with a sub-sector of players, equally it will alienate those after an instant blast.
I’m less certain how the game’s freemium framework is going to pan out. I came across the machine for purchasing new ships to be a little opaque to state minimal, and it remains to be seen how much of an advantage splashing out real money on the fancier models will provide you with.
Given the demanding and tactical characteristics of the combat, though – not forgetting the developer’s pedigree – I’m self-confident that World of Warships Blitz will be an intriguing skill-based multiplayer game when it finally hits the App Store proper.
