Om detta spel

Bummer! World War III happened and killed most of the world’s population. The ones that got toasted were the lucky ones. Survivors live in constant fear of being murdered or enslaved by violent gangs, renegade military units and, of course; mutants.

Outfitted with a heavily armored car, unlimited firepower and a thirst for vengeance, our Heroine – the Wasteland Angel roams the radioactive wastes, travelling from one God-forsaken town to the next, protecting survivors from being enslaved. She’s on a mission, to defend those that can’t defend themselves.

Wasteland Angel is a throw-back to the era of vintage arcade shooters, where players fend off waves of enemies and ultimately face-off against epic end-level bosses. From a top-down isometric view, players pilot the Wasteland Angel’s overpowered vehicle as its dual machine guns cut a swath across the terrain. To handle whatever the gangs, muties and renegades throws her way, Wasteland Angel has upgradeable weapons and ammo that can rip enemies from this life and toss them into the next.

Key features:

  • 24 Levels of fast-paced action across 6 ravaged landscapes
  • 3 Enemy Factions including Gangers, Renegades and Mutants
  • 4 Difficulty Levels from beginner to suicide

to put it simple this is a great car based shooter.

u can either play story mode or level wise. basicly same thing just storymode moves foward where level based u can always go back and replay ur fav levels <3. there is a nice selection of super weapons to use also which livens up the gameplay.

the bosses sometimes can be a bit tricky but if ur good at these types of games u can win them with ease sometimes and other times its a challange.

one of the toughest things to do is save every damn civilian which makes the game even more tricky.
but also there is bonus levels added. mainly survival, racing, or timed survival kill for more time.


if u see this game on sale get it as its a great game to play but it can be slightly short. but the level mode makes up for that as u can always replay any boss,bonus level, or just any plain level anytime u want.
sidenote~ u may wanna buy a controller as it makes the game easier and more fun ^w^ logitech brand works wonder <3 started without one ended with one and so much more enjoyable

overall 10/10 for a great car based shooter <3 ~ will be updating this review in the future~ ^w^


oh and who doesnt love running over the baddies once there cars are gone come on. lol

Wasteland Angel is a Road Warrior/Death Race hybrid themed isometric car battle game. You are Angel, a beautiful but tough woman travelling around the post-apocalytpic United States in search of your friend, Eks, in your armoured car 'Gypsy'. As you travel around, you encounter towns under attack by Wastelanders and you help to defend them.

You are able to pick up weapon upgrades and special weapons to help you do this, and there is a wide variety of each, though the by far most useful is your main weapon, as most of the rest require good placement and the enemy AI is erratic at best. One of the problems with the weapon upgrade system is that eventually your main gun becomes powerful enough you can quite literally pick a spot and just rotate on it like a turret. Thankfully, weapon upgrades do not carry from one stage to the next.

Wasteland Angel, is, however one a game added to the list of games where the minigames are better than the actual game. At the end of each stage is a bonus level, which takes the game from isometric to first person, which I found a lot more fun than the base missions themselves.

The game's physics engine is... well... it's VERY arcady to say the least. Often times collisions cause your car to spin out of control, way beyond what would be reasonable. Fortunately there is a reset button to right yourself fairly quickly, though a lot of time this can mean failing to save and/or running over civilians. Worse yet, often times enemy cars will get 'stuck' offscreen, preventing you from finishing the wave until a car from the next wave hits them to get them unstuck.

Graphically the game is okay. It isn't spectacular, but I have definitely seen a lot worse. The audio is decent, and the voice acting is comically bad but I am left with the impression that this is on purpose. The music gets irritating VERY quickly, but a lot of the time I didn't notice. I had tuned it out because I was focusing on the sometimes very frantic gameplay.

The game is very short. I was able to complete the game and collect all 40 achievements in just under 4 hours. It has the length and the equivalent overall quality to a mobile game, therefore while it is a lot of fun I think $9.99 is asking a little bit too much. I would recommend this game to anyone who enjoys arcade games, but only if they were able to pick it up on sale for 50% off or better.

To put it simple, this game is a mindless kind've fun. Just launch the game, blast a whole lot of baddies and collect all 40 achievments. It is no masterpiece of course, but for a budget priced game, you get a good amount of value out of your money. The only isue I have with it is the scoring system. One of the bonus levels make it virtually impossible to lose, and I was racking up points for over 15 minutes..but after you hit the max points, your score resets into the negatives. This happened at least 3 times throughout that level and ruined the fun of the scoring system for the rest of the game. Overall Recommended though ^_^

The game isn't just bad. It's super bad.

I get the it for free, so I don't feel like being scummed or something. But I just think that it isn't worth playing even if you get it from a bundle. It's just a waste of your time.

There are generaly no positives that I can find after finishing it.

* Physics sucks. Half of the objects on map don't even have hitboxes. You can run through a tree or giant rock and you're just fine. You can shot through the rocks and some wrecks, but your bullets crush into a lake or river.
* AI is terrible, enemies keep hitting walls and stacking there for good. You have to find and kill them all even if they are stuck behind the screen.
* The worst part: gameplay is extremely boring and repetetive, 3 enemies types for whole game, the first lvl is almost the same as last one. Only the scenery/car outlook changes. Every 2 levels there is a boss. The game looks like:

Chapter I :
1st level
2nd level is same as 1st, but at night
3rd level - boss
4th level - bonus round

Chapter II :
1st level
2nd level is same as 1st, but at night
3rd level - boss (same as in chapter I)
4th level - bonus round

And again and again... All 6 chapters. At least the game is short.

* There is a plot. It sucks as well. -> "Lets slay all the mutatns, becouse they are soooo bad."
* The game got achievements. Actually, after 3h of playing and ending the main story I decided to check what achievements the game has. I turned out that i got 100% for a first run, even without checking them.

TL;DR VERSION: 10/10 WOULD UNINSTALL AGAIN. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR EASY AND BORING 100% ACHIEVEMENTS GAME THAT ONE IS FOR YOU!

This game somehow reminds me of the mid-90s sci-fi flick Tank Girl, but maybe the similarity begins and ends with the post-apocalyptic setting, the cartoonish art style and the main characters, both girls whose favourite activity seems to be shooting mutants. You take on the role of Angel, who drives around in her car and saves the inhabitants of post-world war III settlements from mutant attacks. So much for the backstory.

Gameplay wise, Wasteland Angel is a no-nonsense top-down shooter. You're looking at a desert landscape from an isomotric perspective, drive around with a car whilst shooting at other cars that likewise shoot at you. That's pretty much all there is. Your main armament consists of two fixed guns, additional weapons can be aquired by driving over power-ups. Each level has three stages and, after you defeat the stages final boss in the third, a short bonus stage that leaves the top-down view and switches to a first-person perspective. The game never breaks from this pattern.

Your car can be controlled with the keyboard or a controller, both work equally well and what you prefer is just a matter of personal preference.

I chose to write a negative review but that doesn't mean there's no fun to be had. There certainly is. There's nothing wrong with the simplistic approach to vehicular combat, driving around in a car blasting everything in sight. The game plays smoothly, the controls are responsive and intuitive, there's nothing bad to say about the sound effects, music and voice-overs and the visuals, while definitely not on par with bigger budget titles, are pretty much what can be expected from an indie game, at least they won't give you eye cancer.

The main problem with Wasteland Angel is that its initial appeal wears thin all too fast. It's incredibly repetitive. Every level offers the exact same scenario, level structure, you're fighting the same enemies again and again, even the environment looks exactly the same in every level.

The game is very short and not particularly challenging. You can easily play through the whole game in one session. While most players probably consider this a downside, achievement hunters might appreciate the fourty easily obtainable unlocks.

there are a couple redeeming sides to this classical top-down (mostly) driving-shooting game - story, as much as this type of game needs one, and the fact that it partially is a good bit of fun.

it takes a couple hours to run this through on easy and considerably more on hard or nightmare where you definitely will retry and retry and retry several of the fairly lengthy levels. with how repetitive it is, i do not see many people wanting to do that.

i cannot really recommend this is earnest. there are bits of fun in there but as this game type/genre is seeing revival recently, if you really need to mindlessly drive and shoot in top-down perspective - you would probably be better off with another game.

technically, it is mostly competent. while not looking exceptional, it looks good or ok - except for the out-of-box 1st person perspective bonus levels where models have the same level of detail as top-down perspective and look like something from end of 90s. control scheme is adequate and keys can be remapped. for some reason every time i started the game from steam, it decided it needs to run a visual c installer with the uac prompt this causes but that might be just my environment.

the only technical gripe is about clipping problems. when you run into something that obstructs the screen, you can get stuck and not even see which way you are facing, making it really difficult to get free quickly. also, the decision to reverse the direction immediately when you drive straight out the level limits is occasionally very annoying, especially in the last set of levels where one of the cities is right at the edge of level.

unfortunately, there is the main downside - this game is repetitive. repetitive, repetitive, repetitive.

you have 3 or 6 different levels and 3 sets of enemies plus bosses but there is no real variance.
- levels are functionally all the same - first you defend one city at day, then at night, then 2 cities on similar map at day, then at night. repeat that three times.
- there are three types of enemies - one that fights you, one that steals civilians and one that does both. the three sets - they are just different skins for the same functions.
- bosses are formulaic as well. big, deal and absorb a lot of damage, can be killed with gathered superweapons.

I tried to like this, I tried to finish this. But... it wasn't to be. Having had quite a bit of fun with top-down drivers in the past, be they racers or shooters, I had high hopes for Wasteland Angel. While it wasn't the worst game I've ever played, the game still disappointed on almost every front. Although... if you are an achievement hunter, the 40 achievements are not TOO difficult to acquire...

The campaign is only 6 chapters/levels divided into 2 missions, one boss fight, and one bonus mission - very short indeed. The plot was essentially irrelevant. Worse yet, the game is incredibly repetitive and boring. Every chapter plays the same way, with the same enemies painted differently - only 3 generic enemy types, doing the same thing, over and over. And you, defending against them for wave on end. The maps are stale and all have the same objective: defend one area. Once during the day, once during the night, and then the same thing with two towns... Even the additional/optional objectives don't really bring anything interesting to the game: escort a vehicle to the town, pick up some crates, become a turret. However, the bonus missions are all the same and incredibly strange: changing you from a top-down view to a first-person view, where you either race for checkpoints or kill as many enemies as you can.

While the game offers weapon upgrades, they are arbitrary and do not carry over from a past map - every mission sees you start with the most basic weapons. Killing enemies and running over pick-ups automatically gives you more/better weapons. Sadly, you are unable to tinker with either your vehicle, or your weapons yourself.

Then there were the bugs. Being stuck in mid-air, enemy AI resulting in them being stuck and unable to move, and therefore unable to be killed (especially the bosses). This is complemented by the top-down camera angle, which can be blocked by terrain, causing you to get stuck. The automatic 180 degree reversal whenever you reach the edge of the map (which also isn't particularly well delineated) was also disorientating. These issues were exacerbated by the controls: while it may not be the case for everybody, the controls were very sluggish and laggy for me, making it incredibly difficult to turn.

God awfull game. The very bad version of Renegade ops. Whole game is basicly shooting generic enemy wave after wave after wave. Even if this was on a phone, still would be boring. Avoid this!

I think this game is ok for what it tends to be.

It's a straight forward - some may call it dumb - little shooting game where you drive a car around a settlement and shoot every other car that comes close. The game seems to have a story but it's overall forgettable as the game itself is a simple arcade-style setting throwing wave after wave of enemies at you.

Some of the enemies just try to kill you, other ones sort of "dock" to your settlement and try to kidnapp the people from it while you have to prevent them from doing so by killing them of course. Then there is a third type of enemy that can be either of the two types but you can't tell in advance because of their look.

That's quite all there is. Between waves you can replenish your health and often killed enemies leave power-ups behind that give you a better shot or more ammo.

As I said before this game could easily be called dumb but it tends to be that way by design. So I personally wouldn't call it dumb but arcade-ish. Just like in the good old days. Don't think - just shoot.

One thing that is annoying though is the standard joypad-setup, but once you set it to "standard-PSX-style" controls (for eg x is gas, shoulder buttons for shooting) it's ok and very direct with no mentionable input lag.

One big advantage of this game is that is seems to support any gamepad you throw at it and not just the x-box one which I found very nice since I tend to use a "Thrustmaster Modena Vibrating U-Pad" that I got pretty used to by now and while the game does support this by default I hadn't to fiddle around with xpadder or something else to get it up and running.

I would recommend this game for people who like oldschool arcade style shooters. Maybe not for full price but for sure when it's on sale, just like it is atm I'm writing this.

I liked games like this back in the days and I'm still happy to find new games like this nowadays.

If you're serious about wether you would like it too just try the demo. It's a fair deal - so get it!

Fun enough with easy achievements for those who like it

Even being a little fun, it's not worth your time. I will just say bad design. I gave the game a second chance and it was really a waste. As one can see on my only screenshot of said game, the freaking boss got stuck on the same spot enough times for me to give up on the game. Not only the boss is stupid, but the enemy AI too...

The game is bad, I could have finished the game if not for these bugs (not really bugs, just bad design and poor AI, let's just call it bug for lack of better words) and still I wouldn't recommend it.

Seriously, do not buy this game, i was trying to play it, everything was kind of good, but it lags horribly, even of high end PCs, there isn't a single graphic tweak in the game and the config files are encrypted, it always says that i must lower the resolution because it's slow, and i can't get anything lower than 1024x768, still the game says it must be lower, thanks to this issue you cannot play it correctly, the enemy tanks fire at will at you and you recieve more damage than anything else. another big issue it's one achievement for 25 checkpoints on a bonus level... you've just started the level and you have 5 seconds to reach the next checkpoint, and the next one give you even less time, it's impossible to get it, i was going to give it a so-so recommendation but now it's the worst steam game i've ever played, DO NOT BUY THIS GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!, by the way it's extremely easy, you get achievements all of the time and it can be finished it a couple of hours.

I really enjoyed this game for the first 10-15 minutes, but experience that, and you seen the whole game. Endless waves of the same type of enemy, only the location changes. There is an occassional boss fight, and a first-person experience on bonus rounds, but other than that, it's just a boring, repetitive grind.

Considering that I got all of the achievements in this game I guess I should say something about it.

Wasteland Angel is the humble story of a woman and her car trying to make it in America. The Wasteland Angel doesn't have a name, so let's call her Mad Maxine. Her car Gypsy is built like a tank, ready to take on World War 3....oops? WW3 already happened and everybody lost. The scant remnants of humanity are just trying to survive under the crushing weight of evil. As the vigilante heroine you gotta protect the cities and kill all the bad guys.

This game has been making the rounds on various indie bundle sites. It's likely that you already have it (and you don't even know). My suggestion is to give it a shot and here's why:

First and foremost this is an arcade-styled game. There's a scoring system, multipliers, bonus points, all that good stuff. Your primary objective is the survival of both yourself and 100 civilians. The enemies arrive in various vehicles and they're either targeting you, the civvies, or both. Regularly out-numbered (but never out-gunned) you make short work of everyone as they arrive in waves. Any leftover time in-between waves is best spent recharging in the city for bonus points. Occasionally secondary objectives will pop up. They are of the "do this" or "destroy that" variety.

Aside from the first-person bonus rounds, Wasteland Angel uses an overhead view. It's pretty easy to track the action and indicators will light up if enemies are kidnapping people. Destroyed vehicles tend to drop power-ups. I'd probably be a little worried if everyone happened to have an air strike or a nuke in their car but eh...it's a videogame. Every few stages there's a boss fight. They're pretty standard, though they can only be damaged by power-ups (napalm, mines, etc).

For the most part Wasteland Angel does the job. It's a fun game. Destroying those stupid bad-guys is satisfying, especially when it involves dropping a nuke on 6-7 of them. After you destroy their vehicles you can gun them down. The controls are satisfactory, and with 20+ stages and leaderboards there's no lack of content.

HOWEVER. There is room for improvement. First and foremost, Wasteland Angel runs a bit long for an arcade-styled game. While playing single stages for score is fine, going through the entire campaign is going to take a few hours. Even with the option to save and quit between stages, this isn't quite ideal. I'm thinking instead of one long campaign, just cut it up into three or four. Also in the interest of pacing, each stage would have less but more intense waves.

Another issue is that the controls could be better. Well maybe better isn't the right word. Maybe uh...more technical? Technique? Ehh I'll think of a better word later. Anyway I'm thinking that Gypsy could use some more moves. While getting around the wasteland is fine as is, some tricks would help getting in getting out of screwy situations. It would also give the developers more room to try more ideas. For example, maybe the RB & LB buttons could be used for doing barrel rolls. Yeah I know "Do a barrel roll!" is hilarious & timely but seriously. Give the car a flippy move for dodging dangerous crap like missiles. Or if it looks like you're going to hit a building and crash just WHOOSH look at all the time you're saving. As a bonus, pressing LB & RB together could result in a 180 spin. The controls in this game are responsive as is, but more abilities couldn't hurt.

Updating the controls would also lead to better boss-fights I imagine. The few in Wasteland Angel 1 are lacking. The first couple are indirect fights. By this I mean you're dropping mines or napalm for them to run into, you're not actively fighting them. The current level of maneuverability just isn't enough to take these big guys head-on. Also there's a fight with a super mutant. I guess it's kinda direct in that you actually have to shoot him, but that's only after dropping an EMP to stun him for a couple seconds. Also the tank boss can be annoying, since it prefers to hang back and snipe at you rather than run over all the fresh mines you've laid out for him.

Also this probably counts as more of a nitpick but there have been a couple occasions, where I got stuck on something. There was also a time an enemy seemingly disappeared, but it didn't count as destroyed so I lost out on bonus points. Some of the stages are also a little too cluttered and lack the proper amount of "flow". Maybe for a sequel, they could use a base design for each stage. It doesn't have to be something obvious like a circle, but it has to be easily indentifiable to the player so they're not driving into a seemingly random wall just to rescue some hapless civilians.

Oh and make it so it's easier to run enemies over.

Still, Wasteland Angel isn't too bad a game. It has the right concept, a solid core, it just needs some tweaks and it could turn out to be something really good.

YMMV

PS - Everytime I type "Wasteland Angel" I keep accidentally typing "Wastleand". Yeah I don't know either.

I took this game from sale, and I'm not sorry. It's not a masterpiece for sure, but i like it alot.
+ Classic post-apocalypse Mad Max style (so-called "postapunk") without zombies, "realism", and so on - rare stuff now.
+ Classic Hard Rock / Heavy Metal music - also not often now.
+ Tons of fun!

Short, but fun game!
Totally worth the sale price, maybe worth the regular price, but kinda too short.

Similar to Renegade Ops, GTA 2, or Zombie Driver. Top down vehicle based shooter, with a more unique first person bonus level mechanic. Lots of fun for $1.

Ehh Not a Bad Game... Cheap game on sale, Picked it up through a bundle. Very Short, you could beat it in an afternoon. Kind of gets repetitive, but by time you get sick of it, you have already beat the game!! Slightly buggy at some points, and controls can be kind of floppy. This game is a Solo clone of Vigilante 8 or Twisted Metal game in my eyes. One of my biggest complains is lack of Multiplayer. I really think Co-Op would be fun!

Nice idea, very nice, but what a bad finish. It could have been great but falls short on just about everything. Real shame. Not sure who's behind the game but if they had some more time (and some more bright ideas and feedback) this might have been a good one.
Don't get me wrong, it's always fun to chase bad guys and shoot em, recieve upgrades and the likes, but it gets real boring real quick here.
Perhaps more fun in multiplayer i suppose. But it gets old real quick in single player.

Can't heartedly recommend.

Wasteland Angel is a nice little top down vehicular combat game. The feel of the game (not the gameplay) reminds me a bit of Death Rally, though not as polished. The car handles a bit strangely at first but I got used to it pretty quickly. The game revolves around defending wasteland settlements from mutant slavers, who come in waves and try to steal your citizens. Every couple levels you will fight a boss, followed by a bonus level. For some reason the bonus levels use a first person camera and I wish it was an option to switch between the two modes.

Gameplay-wise, the game is quite simple. Waves of enemies come at you, and you must destroy them before they destroy you or steal your citizens. Only certain vehicles can steal citizens so you have to keep an eye out for them. You can recover citizens by destroying the vehicles before they can get away, but then the citizens are vulnerable to being run over and gunfire, and will often be accidentally killed by you just by destroying the vehicle.

Overall it's some quick fun. It doesn't take long to complete so I wouldn't say it's worth $10 but when it's on sale, it's not a bad deal.
