This title has received numerous recognitions in its only year of life, as it has been awarded as the Independent Game of the Year and Excellence in Multiplayer in the SXSW Awards 2021. At first, it was intended for telephones, but thanks to the good response it has received from its users, they have decided to return to the initial format. But what is the secret to your success?
A game inspired by the golden age of video games
As we said at the beginning, this retro-futuristic game is set in the greatest hits of the 80s that could only be enjoyed in arcades. We can verify it in its aesthetics of 16 bit that have been able to reproduce with great quality, although their popularity is not only focused on this. It is a side scrolling shooter in which we have to face four gangs of thugs that will stand in our way along their 20 levels.
When you start playing, you will put yourself in the shoes of a bounty hunter. Your goal is to kill the criminals with the weapons that are available. You can choose between three different characters: Anna Conda, John sawyer or Mow man, and each of them has special characteristics and abilities. The first is a mercenary hardened in a thousand battles, the second is a former policeman without fear of death and finally we meet a cyborg.
The enemies will try to take control of the territory of this city, and for this they will have a wide arsenal of weapons that you can collect if you manage to kill them. To do this you must shoot, run, jump and protect yourself with simple mechanics and movements. And there is even more, since you can improve your gaming experience in its cooperative mode. We must not confuse it with the mode multiplayerSince you and your allies can only fight against enemies controlled by the game itself.
Huntdown is now available in Spain, and you can get it in the store Google play. You can start enjoying its demo version, although if you want to unlock the full title you will have to pay 8.99 euros. A high a priori price for a mobile game, but taking into account that for other platforms it costs 20 euros and that we will have guaranteed fun, it will not seem so expensive.
