Review Zergs Hunter Free
A crude sci-fi action shooter that needs work

Decent graphics, interesting plot
Very common, not interesting game play, bores you really quickly, low quality animation
Zergs Hunter comes off like a retro platformer game with modestly interesting play, and ultimately, some truly boring and slow moving mechanics. As the story goes, you are a bad ass commando who finds himself in a futuristic looking industrial location, with platforms, girders and what looks to be pools of lava. This is a side scrolling shooter, and enemies come at you from both the left and right sides of the screen.
Your enemies here, are insect looking creatures just begging to be blasted into itty-bitty bits of exoskeleton and oozing goo, and if all that sound interesting to you, I'm sorry to disappoint, because my description gives the graphics and animation far too much credit. The suggestion of menacing insect enemies is far more imaginative that what's actually delivered, which is just a series of sloppy, choppy renders that drive the point home that this game flatly sucks. The action, if it can be called that, is so slow and clumsy, that it inspires sleepy, comfy cozy thoughts, as opposed to actually instilling the angst and imperative this game should be delivering.
The sounds are terrible, and the controls are sloppy. Just tap the left and right arrows to shoot and move in that direction, and use one of several weaponry or special abilities buttons that are marginally interesting, but do nothing to salvage this hopelessly dull game.
Zergs Hunter could be so much better than it is. It almost has something worth playing here, but comes off like an unfinished beta - er - scratch that - unfinished alpha. If they fix it, this one could be cool.
