BBB: App-ocalypse is a very original and unusual game for Windows Phone of the Tower Defense genre, in which we are to fight for survival in a metropolis populated by zombies and mutants. It is not known what caused another apocalypse, but most of the residents of this great city have turned into thirsty for fresh blood monsters. However, they absolutely don't care about people hanging single in the city, or those who are trying to stop them. Their main goal is one small area of the city, which is where people who managed to avoid infection by an unknown virus, are hiding.
Progression of eventsThe district with the people was strongly protected on the perimeter, but they needed at least one outlet to the exclusion zone to victual and fuel from time to time. It is this outlet exactly we have to guard against unruly crowds of mutants. In front of the gate there is a small pad where you can place brave men of healthy people to fend off the zombies. Each recruit of the army of volunteers is provided with a conventional cricket bat with which he has to destroy the enemy.
It will be enough for the first waves, but then on the battlefield there start to appear stronger individuals of mutants, and their number will grow steadily. To cope with the increasing pressure of the attackers, you will need to make timely upgrade to your fighters and bring more powerful representatives of the humankind to the battlefield. It is clear, that for a more powerful fighter you will have to pay more money. The same thing happens with the upgrade - the higher it is, the higher the price of a warrior.
Upgrade and unusual shooter modeAfter the first upgrade your warrior has a big ax in his hands, after the second he turns into a ninja. In the course of time, even that won't be enough, and you will have to save money for the hiring of more serious fighters (police with guns and people with a flamethrower). They can also be improved, but the main weapon in this game is you. Once you turn the smartphone at 360°, a third-person view switches to the first-person one, and you yourself will be right above the gates leading into the living area.
ResumeIn your hands will be a weapon which depending on the level and amount of money, may be a revolver or a multicore machine gun. To start firing you need to touch the screen one time, but to aim at the mutants you will need to use the accelerometer, which is not very convenient. The graphics in the game are quite mediocre, but you won't notice the nuances because locations are mostly dark, and the gameplay is very dynamic. Everything else is pretty good, and fans of the Tower Defense genre should pay attention to the BBB: App-ocalypse game.
