Rovio’s Challenge Bay recently showed that there’s an desire for foods for high seas swashbuckling one of the growing mobile online shooter market.
If you’d like something a little more serious, strategic, and historically appear from your naval skirmishes however, World of Warships Blitz Hack could be for you.
Having just moved into soft launch in the Philippines, I decided to put the overall 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 Phrase of Tanks Blitz. Exactly like that game, it started out its life out on PC before pointing its prow towards mobile-land.
Essentially, the game boils right down to shooting true to life opponents and attempting to get the other team’s territory by sailing to 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 predecessor, 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 feels satisfyingly mechanical.
Every move you make here needs to be organized and thought through. The fact that you’re piloting huge ships means that it requires a while to get up to rate and, crucially, convert. Aiming must be done gradually and delicately, lest you break free of the focusing on reticule.
Thar she blows
The huge distance you indulge your goals at plays a part too. You need to skilfully lead your photographs when interesting a moving aim for, whilst getting the powerful torpedo on focus on (for the ships that have them) requires a dangerous combination to be both up close and side-on to your aim for.
That’s not even considering the necessity to put out deck fires (there’s location-based damage here) and send out repair crews to patch yourself up mid-fight.
Basically, fight in World of Warships Blitz is difficult. Once I relocated free from the tutorial fights and into online battles against real players, I took repeated poundings from patient, wily opponents.
You really need to thing your movements through – charging directly into the fray without back-up is a sure-fire way to get blown from 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 it will alienate those after a quick blast.
I’m less certain the way the game’s freemium composition will 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 a lot of an edge splashing out real money on the fancier models will provide you with.
Given the demanding and tactical character of the fight, though – not to mention the developer’s pedigree – I’m self-assured that World of Warships Blitz will be an intriguing skill-based multiplayer game when it finally hits the App Store proper.
