Informazioni sul gioco

I fan dei giochi "sparatutto" meritano di più. E quelli che non hanno scoperto il piacere della distruzione via "twin stick", si meritano un punto d'accesso. Ecco Waves, un twin stick shooter che può essere giocato da chiunque, ma con una soglia di abilità abbastanza alta da intrattenere anche il più intransigente dei fan.
Waves è stato costruito per essere completamente accessibile e al contempo richiede una gran dose di abilità per essere padroneggiato. Sfalcia le banalità e riduce tutto a ciò che è davvero importante: i Punteggi Migliori.
L'obiettivo è sgomberare l'arena dai nemici ottenendo grandi Combo con uccisioni veloci e Bombe ben piazzate - e se la situazione diventa troppo complicata puoi usare il tuo Time Buffer per rallentare l'azione e trasformare una sconfitta in vittoria. I Giocatori possono competere attraverso cinque modalità di gioco differenti, con tabelle dei punteggi online e Achievements (Risultati) alla ricerca della perfezione.

Funzioni Principali:

  • Rallenta il tempo a volontà attraverso il Time Buffer.
  • Decima i nemici con bombe ben piazzate.
  • Concatena le uccisioni per combo schiaccianti.
  • Batti i punteggi dei tuoi amici con le classifiche online.
  • Crunch Time – 3 minuti per ottenere il punteggio più alto che puoi.
  • Sali di livello e sconfiggi gli spaventosi Cubi per estendere il tuo tempo in Rush.
  • Modalità Sopravvivenza - 3 Vite e più cattivi di quanti ne puoi immaginare, ma fa' attenzione alle imboscate!
  • Bombing Run è un'esplosione unica. Niente pistole e un mucchio di Esplosioni. BOOM!
  • La modalità Sfida mette alla prova la tua abilità con 20 livelli e solo 30 secondi per ciascuno - cerca di ottenere il punteggio massimo (5 Stelle) per tutti.

A twin-stick shooter with a calm, polished, cybernetic aesthetic, Waves is a solid member of the genre with interesting mechanics but limited content.

Waves is a game where you control a sphere rolling within a cylinder, shooting a spray of bullets with the aim of removing an array of shapes which you are motivated to kill because A) They give you points, and B) You blow up and stop moving when they hit you. The game has a few interesting auxilliary mechanics. First is the buffer which is a rechargable bullet-time power that is a main panic button, and the second is bombs that become available based on your combo multiplier. If your combo breaks than the bomb disappears so there is an interesting anxiety if saving a bomb, and also a chance to chain together a large number of bombs for maximum efficacy. As difficulty ramps up and the chances of missing decreases due to the large number of baddies on the screen, bombs become more and more frequent, which leads to a fun chaotic dynamic when things get tougher.

This game has a small, understated, relaxing techno themed soundtrack that goes well with the hex-gridded environment and the polygonal, computer themed enemies. It took me a while to appreciate the game's design as there is quite a bit of subtlety, but in the end I appreciated the vision.

Though ultimately enjoyable there are some minor gripes. First, I can't pause between death and respawn, though often I wish to simply restart the level after an early untimely death. Also, the challenge mode often perplexingly doesn't trigger success for the challenes appropriately. Further, the UI is a bit crowded and oddly designed. For example, a high score is often displayed proiminently in the middle right of the screen, while the current score is displayed on the middle left of the screen. There is a lot of data on the screen. Aesthetically it works in a sort of augmented vision manner, but practically I would like to reduce a lot of this clutter. My worst is criticism is Ithat he amount of content is limited. Many game modes play out quite similarly and there is only the one stage. After a few hours you've seen it all, and you may not want to grind the same set up repeatedly.

Though unfair due Waves' differing mechanics, I feel this game asks to be compared with installments of Geometry Wars. If you liked Geometry Wars, then you will like Waves. If you didn't, you won't. If you've never played Geometry Wars than Waves is a cheap introduction to the genre when it is on sale. The game is a solid effort, and personally, I'm excited for the sequel, which as of this writing is in Early Access.

Waves are a physical phenomena resulting from specific excitation in a medium. Most waves involving the medium itself are limited by the speed of sound in that medium, while the travel of optical and electromagnetic waves depends on the speed of light in that medium. This review brought to you in part using waves from Original Curator Group.

Waves is a great twin-stick Geometry Wars clone with a lot of replayability thanks to the achievements and leaderboards and variety of game modes. It has good music with some Kefka laughter mixed in. The menu system is a smooth transition between the game and itself, allowing the player to not feel as slowed-down by losing a game or switching game modes. The visuals are very nice but ultimately too shiny (for the sake of making sure you destroyed all the tiny, yellow orbs). I also think the game could use more game modes and content, but for how cheap it is, I'm very happy with the amount of content.

Polished twin-stick shooter with addicting gameplay, colorful presentation, and incredible soundtrack (seriously, I sometimes play the game just to hear the music). Although it comes with a handful of other modes, most of them are the same game with different objectives. Despite lack of content, the content it does offer is solid. Not mind-blowing, but will leave a smile on your face.

If you enjoyed Geometry Wars or enjoy topping high scores, this is the game for you. I wouldn't pay full price unless you dearly love the genre. I would highly recommend waiting for a sale of $1 or less and kill a few hours with it.
