Simple gameplay, decent graphics, great story and cut-scene movies
Repetitive, poor enemy ai
Dead Earth: Sci-fi FPS Shooter is an Android game that places the user in the future, in a dying world where humanity made the mistake of introducing machines to fight for them in wars. The machines have become sentient and rebelled against their creators with a clear intent that they do not want to share the planet.
The game is simple in nature, merely revolving around aiming and shooting at the enemies that try to overrun you followed by a reload button. When cornered you can always dispose of them with a grenade or double your damage, but keep in mind these are consumables and must be used wisely. Each map has 3 goals that you need to reach in order to fully complete it, ranging from killing a certain amount of enemies to terminating them with a headshot or a certain weapon. The main character moves automatically from spot to spot once each goal has been achieved, requiring that the player merely dispatch enemies once these points have been reached. Once a battle has begun, a timer will start also, requiring that the player finish the goals in the set amount of time given. The graphics are decent but nothing special, with the game looking fine on higher end devices, while the graphics seem a bit lacking on lower end ones.
Overall Dead Earth: Sci-fi FPS Shooter is a decent game, tough the lack of mobility and enemies that seem to only melee you down while attacking you in single file does lower the thrill that most FPS games bring to the table and might deter serious gamers. It remains worth trying though, I for one found myself playing through the game mostly for the story and the entertaining cinematic movies. The game has the backing of an exciting fiction story despite its gameplay shortcomings.
