About This Game

The program is as true and accurate as possible to the actual workings of its real-life counterpart.
World of Guns:Gun Disassembly comes with seven different modes:
  • Field Strip
  • Operate
  • Disassembly
  • Assembly
  • Game
  • Super Game
  • Hardcore
In Disassembly and Assembly Mode, the X-Ray View looks directly through the gun to show you where all of the parts are located.
In Operate Mode you can fire, slide moving parts, and reload the gun when the magazine is empty. Slow Motion View allows you to see the gun’s operation in even more detail.
The Game Mode of this application is a mind-teasing puzzle. Here, you are given the challenge to rearrange and reassemble the gun in the fastest time. These times are then recorded locally and globally in our highscore tables, where you can compete with other users. Parts are usually assembled and disassembled in a logical order, but sometimes the order is determined by specific safety or mechanical limitations.

Dissasembled and reasembled guns many times. Shot the guns tons of times. Put different attachements on them. Sprayed like crazy and shouted MURICA. Then I came home to play World of Guns and thought it was cool.

10/10 Would be patriotic again.

World of Guns Gun Disassembly is not a game in its actual meaning. It’s more like an ABC of guns that everyone would like to have at home. Sure, it would be more interesting to have all those guns at home stored in a special place but if you have a very special need to take a closer look at the weapons of all kinds but at the same time want to be safe or simply can’t afford the arsenal – World of Guns Gun Disassembly is your savior.World of Guns Gun Disassembly is a decent and more than successful attempt to create affordable and deep encyclopedia of guns. But not just a virtual book with boring descriptions and history. Well, not that we do not like history, but all that information is available on the web already. We also have tons of videos and tutorials on how to use guns, assemble and dissemble them and how to fire the proper way. But, have you ever seen an application that would allow you to get inside the gun, see how it actually works and assemble or dissemble the favorite rifle with your own hands?To your surprise – World of Guns Gun Disassembly is exactly this kind of software.Once you got your gun chosen, start playing with it. At first it looks like a simple 3D room where you can take a look at the gun from all sides. However, in just a few seconds it turns into something unpredictably catchy.Everything you do is accompanied with simple but nice animation. In World of Guns Gun Disassembly your task is to dissemble or assembly a gun in a certain order. Don’t be afraid – it follows the rules of logic, so even if you have no idea what to do next – start dealing with the most complicated part of the mechanism. In the end you will either appear with lots of gun elements floating in the air or a fully loaded pistol/rifle/shotgun after making it one solid construction from all that stuff.It’s a great thing that you can train your memory by completing challenges both ways. Not only it gives you a better understand of guns but also allows to be more aware of all the small things. I would say it’s a perfect virtual helper for young soldiers and those who want to improve their knowledge in guns.Despite incredible attention to the details, World of Guns Gun Disassembly also has an X-ray mode where you can see what’s inside the gun and how the mechanisms work without tearing it apart.On the top of all the greatness, you can also equip your guns with various accessories and see how they work. Flashlight, optics and lasers – they all are here and look different on every gun.World of Guns Gun Disassembly includes all the possible weapons starting from ages ago and going up to the modern and popular models. World of Guns is a wonderful experience.

Got stuck on re-assembling Colt. 1911, googled how to re-assemble one, accidently searched "How to make a Colt. 1911", FBI shows up at my door wondering why I'm trying to make a firearm. 10/10 Would go to prison again.

General - 9,0
The game allows you to do almost everything the leftists in your country won't (in my country PT - Partido dos Trabalhadores/Worker's Party). As a gun enthusiast I can say it's the best simulator in the genre that I've seen, it's an almost real experience. If you're looking for a random FPS don't download it, probably you'll find it boring, but if you wanna learn the mechanics or practise the disassembly of some of the most known and reliable weapons it's a must in your library. It has a greater educational value than entertainment value, however I do find pleasure on this kind of knowledge.

Content - 9,5
There are several models of handguns, assault rifles, sniper rifles, SMG's, etc. You start with an AK-47 and afterwards a Colt 1911, the other guns you will have to buy, but you can unlock many more with your exp. points. You get exp. completing achievements and logging in everyday. As if it wasn't good enough, you can also disassemble skeletons (got the highest score of the day :D) and vehicles, which I find amusing. In addition there are shooting ranges, quiz and information about the weapons. Models are downloaded the first time they're used.

Gameplay - 7.5
Modes are: field strip, disassembly, assembly, operation, game, super game and hardcore game, each has a description at the beginning. There are also achievements for each mode and world leaderboards for all 3 game modes. If you liked in the first 10 minutes, chances are you'll play for 10 hours in the first day, so I don't have to say it's replayable and addictive. You use the mouse to interact with parts and control the camera, you can also use keyboard for some actions but I don't recommend. Sometimes a different part is selected in game mode and in some modes the camera moves against your will. In most modes you have to wait for the end of the animation to perform an action, that's annoying in timed modes. RMB is a good and quick way to zoom a specific part. Controls could be more precise.

Graphics - 7.5
Models are very precise and some even include a bit of visual external wear (mechanic wear would make a nice DLC), however they only look like plastic. Options are very limited, but they're not very relevant on this game, you can identify any part at all times, and if you don't, there's a caption in the lower centre of the screen for each part selected. There's native AA support and fixed frame rate at 60fps. The game is windowed by default. In general the models look like any good directx 9 game, I believe it's playable even with integrated video cards. Menus could look better. The game hasn't crashed yet.

Overall - 33.5/40

It's a fun time waster and is a good simulation. Not so good on the target range simulations, but still good none the less.

This game has much potential, but the loads of DLC's and the strict way the guns must be disassembled (Completly different from the real world- Why do I have to remove the handguards on the M16 to remove the upper assembly from the lower?) make this game much less fun than it could be. I've spent enough time in this game to learn one thing: The creators of this game never even handled a firearm, let alone disassembled one. Also some of the guns, like the AMT backup, are glitched.

World of Guns is an interesting game in which you get to disassemble, and reassemble guns. At first, I looked at it and thought "There is no way I'll like this.", but then I started playing it. I thought, 'Why would I want to do that?' almost every step of the way, after all, it's just taking bits out of a model and then putting it back together.
Well, it turns out that if you have a few minutes to spare while a friend is off doing something, or half an hour before going to work with only boredom to keep you company, the prospect of a gun model to pull apart and put back together is pretty pleasing.

Most things appear at first to be accessible with no payment needed, and a few that you can get by being the daily top score on a gun. It's free, so that's great value already, and you get hourly quizzes for bonus exp(Used to unlock more guns).
So then, how does it play?
You can field strip a gun, taking apart only bits of it, and then putting it back together
You can disassemble and reassemble a gun, which is doing the obvious
There is a simulation of how the guns work, with slow down, x-ray vision, and multiple magazines and assesories you can use
After you completed those, you will unlock the 'game', 'supergame', and 'hardore game' modes.
Game is a time attack, you have to disassemble and then reassemble your model as fast as possible, with bonusses for not clicking too fast and not clicking any part that you aren't going to activate. (Hint: Spacebar activates whatever you have selected, this will help your time a lot. You can also turn off the auto-zoom to selected parts in the options)
Supergame is also a timed mode, but now you get to time your activation a second time on some parts. If on time, the part moves out faster. If not on time, it's slower. You get a bonus for not clicking too much.
Hardcore game automatically activates any part you click on, and you can activate multiple at once. This is where things get fast, with large amounts of bits, pins, screws, and all sorts of springs flying all over, you'll get a bonus if you don't click anything you can't activate

And in all this, you will become very familiar with what I have called the "Ikea effect". Namely, there will be one or two little screws or pins somewhere that you can't find, possibly having vanished into the ether when you weren't looking. Luckily it isn't modeled on reassembly, so you won't have to worry about a spring rolling under somewhere and disappearing into an alternate plane of existence

Gun enthusiasts, you probably already have this. But if not, I recommend it to you.
Others, if you enjoy score-based or slightly competitive - With the whole playerbase or just between you and friends, this may be a good choice
But aside from that, if you just want to grab something simple to spend some time on between things you're doing, this is a great choice. The small size means its a fast download and the short gamemodes means you can spend as long as you want on this. But I'll warn you, perfection on a model may take a lot of time

(I would also recommend a youtube search for LethalFeline, he has videos up of him playing if you still aren't sure)

Even though I have approximately zero interest in firearms, taking things apart has to be one of the most satisfying and addictive activities our little lizard brains can partake in. Granted, now I know more about the inner workings of an AK-47 than those of my own kettle.

Educational - check. Entertaining - check. Strangely meditative and therepeutic despite the fact that you are putting together intricate (and sometimes not so intricate) instruments of death - check, check, check.



对枪支真的是一点兴趣也没有,但拆东西拆起来真的是无比之爽,看着一地的细碎零件再把它咔嚓咔嚓的拼装起来是多么快乐的一件事啊!

The good:

+ If you are into firearms, this is a goldmine. Hundreds of models with new ones released periodically, with complete disassembly, reassembly and demonstration of operation, with - for some models at least - a selection of example accessories.
+ Very thorough; probably little to nothing else on the market is as accurate as this is when it comes to the depiction of firearms
+ There is DLC unrelated to guns for those interested in taking apart other things; such as cars or skeletons.
+ The lifetime access, while expensive, is very, very, very much worth its price if you know what you're looking for, and if you just want to skip the whole Facebook-game-aspect of earning "points" (see below)
+ Shooting ranges put you in a first-person perspective; and pleasantly enough, ballistics are also correctly replicated; this is NOT a hitscan game and they did put effort into this

The bad:

- Lack of blank backgrounds which would probably be easier on the eyes... though this is a minor gripe.
- The "Paint" feature, part of the latest update (as of the time of this writing), while interesting, is currently lackluster, with a very limited amount of stickers and patterns (some of the tackiest ones being DLC!).

The ugly:

! It's... hard to call it a game at all. It's more of an enthusiast's tool; the appeal is very niche. See below for an in-depth explanation.

----

Notes and gripes:

I "recommend" it solely based on my bias ; being a long-time firearms enthusiast, this is both an interesting toy to play with and an useful learning tool, but it's only going to be that way for you as well IF you are into guns... and mayhaps if you get the rather expensive lifetime guns access.

The free to play aspect may seem nice, but the point unlocking requires a little bit of grinding and way too much time on your hands. While it may be fun for some, it may be worth pointing out that this is the sort of thing I expect from a Facebook or mobile app, not a game on Steam (which it actually also is).This falls in the usual "time/money" problem of free to play games; either you spend time to grind away and get the Exp to unlock progressively everything, or you spend money to get them right away.

If you want something of a "gamey" aspect, the shooting ranges are the closest you'll get to a proper game, but unless all you want is shooting targets, bottles and soda cans, this may feel like there could be more that can be done with this, yet there just isn't... Although the RPG range was pretty damn cool, i'll admit as much.

Whether or not this is worth the cash depends entirely on how much value you put in having a tool such as this, which may or may not be directly influenced by your personal affinity and love of firearms.

For those looking for a "proper" game, you can safely avoid it, you may be sorely disappointed.

An extra note which concerns the Paint update; since this has also enabled Steam workshop for this game, allowing anyone to upload their combinations of guns, colors, patterns, and incredibly limited selection of stickers. While in theory this is a nice addition that may allow WoG players to sink a little more time in devising their eye candy for their favorite boomsticks, in practice it's done pretty poorly; as I said before, the very limited choice of stickers and patterns and the lackluster color options turn this feature into something more of a curiosity and less something particularly fun to use.

I would've much preferred having the ability to download templates and paint them using Photoshop or something similar, and use WoG as a sort of 3D renderer. Considering that the model quality is sufficiently high and true to life, it would GREATLY increase the possibilities, and allow potential gun artists to come up with real masterpieces. There is something to painting guns, if one's taste isn't limited to tacky gold guns that have been done to death (yours truly is guilty of it as well) or silly CS:GO-style paintjobs which have their place in a toy store more than in an armory.

But all in all, the Paint feature is just a part of World of Guns, and not the most interesting one. My primary reason for using WoG is because it is a fantastic learning tool for the firearms enthusiast, and for having virtual access to guns I wouldn't even dream of seeing in real life, let alone fire or disassemble.

Parting thoughts: Maybe Noble Empire should take the opportunity to develop some sort of game using these ultra-accurate models? That is, if the licensing allows them. Between a purely educational tool, which WoG is, and a proper video game, there's a chasm and certain firearm manufacturers might not find it all that fun and dandy to have their perfectly replicated, 100% licensed and trademarked designs and brand names depicted in a video game.
This is nothing new; many games have resorted to just not putting the brand names, logo, or even actual names, and some manufacturers have been known to do lawsuits over it. An easy example is Glock; you'll be hard pressed to find a game depicting or naming a Glock firearm that is actually properly licensed by Glock GmbH (Usually, instead of "Glock 17" you will see "G17", and so on). A counter-example is Walther; they LOVE their product placement in 007 movies and video games, and Walther guns tend to be accurately and properly named in these games; just to show you that gun manufacturers are no different from Coca-Cola, Chevrolet or Apple; they know product placement is big money.

Well, i like the mechanics of the game, and the care and passion that went in it, modeling every part of every gun, it's own little animations for each one and simple, relaxing and enyojable music,in fact, i love how the developers thought about a guns game, not shooting or reloading guns, but an intresting one, teaching the player how the guns work, adding X-ray features to see how all the parts interact with each oither, slow motion to see every detail of a gun when putting it to work, but here's the hole in the plot, ( I don't know if classify this as spoilers or not) this game, is in fact, PAY TO WIN in a nutshell, but i will let that for the final part, you're presented with the beauty of the AK-47,They teach you to disassemble it, reassemble it,operate it, and giving you a fully interactable model of it, then the tutorial ends and you're out at your own, then the stuff happens, then they teach you that your experience points actually mean something, you use them to "Buy" new gun models, but they are not that easy to obtain, You get a little amount of credits after every dissasembly, reassmebly and operation of the gun, and you're thirsty for more models, more guns, some gun you like and you''re intrested to know how it works, But you just can't go to their location in the tree and buy it, NOOO, You actually have to unlock EVERY SINGLE gun in your way to it, and the next model is in your way, taking into consideration that to unlock it you either have to use your hardly obtained experience points, or credits, that of course, you purchase, costs a crapton of exp points, now we're forgetting something, aren't we?, HOW do we get experience points?, Pfffff, time trial games of course, These consist of disassmble guns and reassemble them as quickly as possible, But the animations are just unfair time-eaters in your quest of getting the best time, let's say that the objective time is 5:00, and you managed to truly do 4:32, but as every part of the gun has it's very own 1-3 second animation, you actually get 5:44.

Oh and let me add, in every time trial game there are achievements, that earn you extra experience points, these consist from not freaking out and clicking the part multiple times to get it out more quickly, that doesn't happens, to actually disassmble the gun and reassmeble it without mistaking ANY SINGLE part in sucession.

Ow, you're so close to your dream gun, but it costs 3,500 exp points and you only have 1000, Oh wait!, what's this 5 credit cost?, how do i get credits?

Purchasing a credit pack in the shop, obviously

To end this ♥♥♥♥♥♥ "review" (and i say that because refering to this as a review would be an insult to other people that actually know how to redact reviews), if you're going to get this game, you either have to be very skilled,very patient or straight up buy the guns lifetime access, that grants you access to the complete gun model library, without any restrictions whatsoever

Thanks for reading and have a good day :)

TL;DR
Have you ever wondered how firearms work? If so, this is a perfect opportunity to familiarise yourself with gun mechanics... for free!
+ LOADS of firearms, including rifles, pistols, machine guns, grenade launchers, and even artillery
+ Attention to detail
+ X-ray, slow-motion, and other features help you see better how a gun works
+ Quiz
+ Low system requirements
+ Suited both for short (although it may be hard to stop playing) and long sessions
- Steals time like nobody's business
- Inconsistent
- Frustrating and unforgiving at times
- Grindy

REVIEW

World of Guns is a free gun simulator. It lets you disassemble and assemble firearms. Moreover, you can also see how a gun works and, albeit in a few cases only, visit a shooting range and put your aiming skills to test.

The gameplay is centered around, you guessed it, assembling and disassembling weaponry. It relies mostly on memorising which parts to move and when to do that. You can move single parts and the whole assemblies. The downside associated with it is that the moveable parts vary from weapon to weapon and it is very easy to make mistakes when disassembling/assembling. Who said that gun assembly was easy?

Apart from the clue of the game, you can also examine how a firearm works. There are some features which come in handy, including x-ray vision and slow-motion. During the "Operation", you perform many actions with the gun, such as fire, reload, attaching accessories (flashlights, scopes, etc.), changing the fire mode, and so on.

The weaponry ranges from historical (Winchester 1887) to modern-day rifles (TAR-21) and everything in-between. There are well-over 100 guns, including pistols, machine guns, and even artillery. To access them, however, you have to earn it the hard way. You start with the AK-47 and unlock other weapons by spending either experience points or credits. The former are earned by completing the weapon tasks (field strip, disassembly, assembly, operation, normal game, super game, and hardcore game) and completing quizzes (one quiz per hour). The latter are either bought or earned by topping the scoreboard in normal, super, or hardcore games (one credit per weapon). Getting all the guns requires a lot of grinding, but that is to be expected from a free game.

To sum up, I recommend this game not only to firearm fans but also to people playing casually. Although being an unforgiving and sometimes frustrating game, it is still tons of fun to play and discover. Furthermore, it can be ran on pretty much any PC. Beware though: a wise man once said that this game should not be played at an airport. Mark his words, for you might miss your flight! A 9/10.
