There are games for mobiles of all kinds but sometimes one stands out for its quality and for looking much more like a proposal for a console than a game for smartphones. Shadowgun was one of those games and now its sequel comes to Android, Shadowgun legends.
Again we are facing a first person shooter, a multiplayer game that will allow us to eliminate and destroy hordes of extraterrestrial enemies from the screen of our mobile.
Huge character customization
The first thing we see when we run the game are some kinematics but we can skip them and go to the creation of our own legend.
The customization of this section is brutal and we can choose more or less obvious elements such as the sex of the protagonist to others such as the color of hair and its cut, the shape of the jaw, the eyes, if it is more or less fat …
I think I had never had so many options when creating a character. Luckily for what you do not want to complicate there is a button that marks this process as random and we can press it a few times to stay with the soldier we like the most.
Good start-up management
Something that has surprised me when I started trying the game is that once I had my character set up, the assistant asked me how often I played this kind of proposals.
Depending on the response, it will show us in more or less detail how to usually play with characters in the first person, to shoot or to manage the options.
In order to move our character we will have two invisible controls. On the left side of the screen we will slide your finger to move in any direction. On the right side we will do the same but to look without moving.
We must combine both movements simultaneously when playing, not forgetting the buttons that activate the weapons we carry equipped.
We will learn all this in the Central, a kind of meeting space where we can buy weapons, accept missions and chat with other players.
But when we want the party to begin we must accept a mission and execute it.
There we will enter the first person shooting mode. In the upper right corner we will have the weapons that we can equip and with a simple touch we can use them. The shot is automatic so we just have to aim precisely. To do this we can double-tap on the screen and move the viewfinder in a more controlled way.
To shoot we will use the right part of the screen and when they damage us we will see blood on the screen.
In some moments we will also have to interact with the environment and a gear symbol will appear that we can touch to advance our objectives.
The form of play varies depending on the missions and there is from competitive play to collaborative missions in which we will have to cooperate with other players.
In the Central we can use the menus to talk, greet or ask questions related to the missions.
The previous Shadowgun games already showed us a high graphic quality and Legends is no different. From the aesthetics of the characters to the visual effects makes the immersion quite complete.
Of course, the energy requirement is high and the mobile is normal to warm up when playing and spend a lot of battery.
Price and download
The game can be downloaded free from the Google Play Store and has multiple languages ??available, among which Spanish stands out. Of course, it has in-game purchases.
