You remember “Pappy Boyington”? No ? Ha, maybe you’re too young to remember you as music, generic, and its contents. No, I will not sing you (although I have a tenor Roberto Ragnagna to) all that inspires me, but I can tell you a little story. Well, it takes on a used but good PQ sheet. Basically this happens during the Second World War in the Pacific Ocean side, who had, at the time, never as bad to its name, and has as its central theme the air battles between US forces as well Japanese. I watched an episode recently. This has very little aged, but keeps a small likeable side say about battles. Who has not dreamed of driving one of these old cars flying? Who has not wanted to take the destiny of the famous Red Baron? Not you ? Not even a little ? Come on, tell me “yes” or I swear not to write this test! Ah, there it is better … So as you enjoy the aerial battles, nothing beats a game that treats her way. Anyway, this is what we propose the Games Atypical studio with their first game on Android, Sky Gamblers: Strom Raiders.
A big play with big WIG craft that pull in all directions with noise everywhere, and water below. That’s what Sky Gamblers, if I wanted to summarize in a few words. But it would be a shame not to take advantage of this invitation to travel in time. For, even if it is not an adventure game itself, it is nevertheless true that he seems to possess, under her wings, a lot of assets to speak submachine guns. Enough to get laid?
After the slight abstract begun during the introduction, fans of the genre will not read the rest, and they will have somewhere right. For Sky Gamblers is above all a flight game, all in 3D. A beautiful flight game like Playstore knows a little.
The scenario is simple. For this sentence, I mean especially that there is not one, but so what, since we are dealing with an action game, sprinkled with simulation, but an action game first. We only know that it happens during the Second World War. Even if it feels a little bombed early in the game, we quickly takes its brands through a tutorial rather well, which tells you how to handle your vehicle.
The latter will respond to the finger and the eye, the touch, to my astonishment and my delight, and the accelerometer blend perfectly with the handling of your aircraft in the sky. The first maneuvers will be difficult, certainly, but it quickly takes the shot, the arcade side of the beast literally taking precedence over the simulation side. A disadvantage ? Possible for those who love the pure simulation. They clearly spend their paths. But for others, the broom handle has really done joy stick office.
Sky Gamblers offers that really fits in the classic. In fact, what really remains its effect of total immersion printing. We do not play, it is in the camera. When an air battle begins, you feel involved. It is a joy when an opponent is liquid. A bit like World of Tank but further because in much faster. Your reflexes will be put to the test. Nevertheless, every success is rewarding, and that, it is priceless. Especially since the developers have released a globally finite thought and play.
Both say right away, the realization is quality. Or very good in some aspects. It is true that in recent times, I took with me (easily) with each stroke a studio left side optimization. Rightly, I sincerely believe. So I asked myself this simple question, a graphically aesthetic game may still run on older hardware?
Because it should be noted, even if you understood, that the game is graphically very nice, and even more than that. The aircraft are well modeled, the water is perfectly rendered, realistic animations. Only a slightly coarser textures are a little task, but it’s really looking more closely that one realizes. In action, and there are many, difficult to see these few imperfections. Nevertheless, everything is done to make the experience complete. And, frankly, it succeeded, total immersion. The fun guaranteed.
He is indeed much by the realization that diverse. Of course, it is not steeped in originality, but the key is there: classic mission mode, PvP mode, training mode. From classic but the damn good. PvP is irretrievably think World Of Tanks, more nervous, it stands to reason given the difference of gear, but also in less tactical. The mission mode is a little more elaborate but still too stuck to the domain of “I’m a pretext to sway the artillery in the face of the opposite WIG craft.” Perhaps it would, despite a great number of campaigns, writing a more structured and more historical. But it really is one of the few points on which we can criticize Sky Gamblers, because even the optimization point of view, it perfectly holds up and does not let you in the sky.
Tested on my usual 4 supports (Asus Memo Pad HD7, Hp Slate 7 +, Asus TF103, Samsung S4), each with a different configuration and the less powerful, Sky Gamblers just did suffer, and yet, the first of lot, the less powerful. Indeed, I noticed some slight slowdowns at times, but nothing too bad. Nothing that can upset you in any case. And that, frankly, we can only congratulate the studios Atypical Games for this success as studios, more known, have failed what is not called an achievement, but rather a “moindredeschosesage”.
Available at very low price of 0.89 euros, Sky Gamblers is a pleasant surprise, as if after all unloaded, found in his pocket last few balls. But beware, here point stray bullets, but the ball while short enough to give you bananas. Enjoying a great achievement, no major defect, gameplay and maneuverability entirely honorable fact, it is an excellent game. What are you wasting your time in the best way possible. What do you hover time of a few hours and without any illegal substance. A happiness that is priceless. Finally, if a small price as mentioned. Of course, Sky Gamblers is not without flaws, but these (some texture defects, reduced intake history, etc …) are so small that they could appear as non-existent in the eyes of some. And, frankly, we wrong not to give them only because the Atypical studio Games has struck a blow for his first on Android, hoping sincerely that their upcoming productions are of the same ilk, otherwise developers we will drown in the Pacific ocean, swinging from a plane. Without a parachute, of course.
