Features multiple gameplay mods, responsive controls, fun gameplay
Not a lot of depth to the combat, gameplay feels heavy
Here is a game that I didn’t honestly know what to expect when I first jumped in. But I quickly found a fun and lighthearted shooter that really peaked my interest. Kitchen Adventure 3D for Android is a game about fending off food monsters throughout multiple different game modes.
So the game calls itself a dual-stick shooter, but that isn’t necessarily true. You have a movement stick and then you’ve got a typical attack button. There are lots of guns, but aiming is heavily assisted (as it should be) and there is actually quite a bit of melee involved as well. Items do have durability and can break or run out of ammo during levels, but there are normally plenty of ammo packs that drop throughout.
Levels are always unique and different as far as objectives go. Sometimes you’ll be tasked with defending something, other times you’ll need to escort another thing, or you’ll simply be trying to survive for a certain amount of time.
Each level rewards you with coins that you can then use to purchase new weapons, new characters, or even upgrade the ones you have. I found a lot of these to be pretty pricey and didn’t notice a huge stat boost while upgrading what I had, but it’s still nice to see something like this so it gives players goals to work towards.
My biggest drawback from Kitchen Adventure 3D is just how generic the name and its content feels. Food monsters and mice? It just doesn’t have an appeal to any real demographic. The good news is that the gameplay is fun enough to convince most players to look past its visual flaws.
