Análises

"Successfully reloading a gun for the first time through sheer muscle memory is easily one of the greatest feelings in gaming."
8.5/10 – Destructoid


"Receiver is interesting for two things. One, it focuses on a single weapon, the Colt 1911 A1, and takes it very seriously, using "high detail gun mechanics", which means you can "manipulate each part of the gun independently" (the beginning of the video shows this in action). The second is that it's a randomly-generated shooter that features permanent death. Taking place inside a single building, every time you die, you have to start at the very beginning again, but the entire game world is re-rolled. It's available now for $5, which given the ideas on show, is totally worth it just to check it out."
Kotaku


"Receiver didn’t cast me as some nigh-invincible mass of regenerating muscle. The end result, then, was that I felt exactly how I’d expect Real Me would in a combat situation involving live ammo."

Straightforward game, Complex gunplay.

Receiver is a new kind of FPS with a mix of a rogue-like RPG game. The great first person shooter takes the handling of your guns unto a whole new level. This very realistic gunplay requires you to know how to handle your pistol knowing each and every step to perform an action. From changing the safety lock, emptying shells, and removing and reloading you magazine, all have their steps that wipes all the realistic shooters into the dust.

Because of this complex use of guns you will die a lot, pretty often actually. It takes time and effort to put to this game in order to complete. Everytime you die you’ll restart in the beginning of this randomly generated world. If you're not a person of patience then this is not the game for you. As you might start in different places on the map don’t expect to receive the same guns, same ammo, and other equipment like a flashlight. Those and as well as placed items are randomly generated.

The foes you face in this game are only robots, two kinds stationary sentries, and airborne ones which are equipped with a taser. The lack of variety of enemies can make this came quite boring for some. Knowing how to approach a corner when you hear the beep on a turret or the lights of a flying saucer can make fighting these guys very repetitive.

The dark, mostly enclosed setting in a tower gives this game a fighting like theme that fits the unknown exploration well. Learning how to conserve your bullets, finding a working flashlight, and collect these tapes that hold a mystery that involves all of mankind really makes it fun for me to play. As playing a easy game is never fun.

This game is a FPS with elements that allow the user to load and reload their gun manually; although this concept sounded intriguing at first, the gimmick soon wore off and becomes annoying and makes the game a lot more difficult. This game has fairly poor graphics quality but it is on the Unity engine. It has ok gameplay in generated worlds but it is very very difficult to complete. The game pins you against robot enemies in a creepy empty setting where you have to find 11 tapes to complete the one level game.
There isn't much to say about this game due to it's lack of content but it isn't very good.

6/15 "Gimmick wears off"

"The Mindkill is inevitable..."

Welcome to Receiver, a shooter that will tear your muscle memory apart, and rebuild it in a new, more responsible way. And that is a very good way to describe this Indie Masterpiece...

What is this game? Why does it have a single word title like shows on Fox? Why is it going to break my muscle memory? Is this game hard? Will I be able to-

STOP!

Lets go over what this game is first. Receiver is a First Person Shooter with the most realistic portrayal of firearms in gaming. Guns are not toys, and they are certainly not as easy to handle as portrayed in many other Military Shooters out there. Each key on your keyboard performs a single action in relation to your handgun, being pulling the slide back, flipping the safety on or off, ejecting shells, or removing the magazine.

Sound hard? Trust me, it is. This shooter, no matter how easy it may look, will break you. You will die, often, and in horrible ways: For your firearm begins in a random state.

You may start with a fully loaded, cocked, and ready M1911, but forget to turn the safety, and guess what? The robot turrets in the next room wont wait until you to fiddle with your gun until its finally ready. Oh, and there are no Humans in this game, you are fighting robots, why do I mention this? They have no fear, ever.

Sentries, Flying Tazers with a death wish, and randomly generated levels will make your life a living hell, and a short one at that.

So why do I love this game, and why did I choose to review it? Video games are beginning to make a translation into the darkness of firearm portrayal. Guns are not toys, they are not easy to manipulate pieces of metal that can be fired without consequence. In comical games, where the weapons can be seen as fake, this is not a problem. But in the MMS (Modern Military Shooter), some weapons are just too easy. Just because an M4A1 doesn't drop an opponent with one shot in Call of Duty 4, does not mean it wont in reality.

Enough rant, lets see how this sizes up. Yay.

Crit Rating: 7.9 (Hard as balls, Randomly generated, Indie, Realism)

-Don't be afraid to die, dying is not a consequence, it is a way to understand how Receiver works.
