Jack Hale is a good three-dimensional third-person shooter in which you in the role of Captain Jack Hale must fight against the army of the emperor ruling the planet of Phobos. The main character has got no friends, and no matter how bad the situation may be, you can only rely on your own strength. For the same reason (lack of allies), you have to shoot at everything that shows at least some signs of life.
No one will surely feel sorry for you, and among wishing to deal with you there will be hundreds and even thousands of soldiers of the Imperial armed forces. However, frankly speaking these poor fellows are somewhat jeasely because the only weapons in their hands are sabers, swords and other items from the category of knives. While at your disposal there will be a real arsenal of firearms. And it doesn't matter that in the first few levels you possess only a pistol. Its more than enough for you to fill the locations with enemy blood of purple color.
Upgrade and weapons purchaseAs you progress through the game you will become richer and from time to time get the opportunity to buy a new weapon. If you have not so much money, you can make an upgrade of existing weapons and make them more quick-firing, accurate, and killing, and replace your magazine for cartridges with a larger one. The money in this game are awarded based on how many fighters of the enemy army you launched into eternity. In addition to money you need to collect blue stars. Or to be more precise, you have to collect them in the first place because the stars are the passage to the next location.
Until you reach the required number of stars you have to do battle with the enemy in the level of the current location. This activity is in truth a little tiring, as the levels in each location are almost all the same. The only difference is that with each new level there will be more enemy soldiers and their armor will become stronger. On the playing field there will occasionally occur boxes. The blue boxes allows the main character to accelerate for some time, and the red ones restore health.
Gameplay featuresTellingly, the powerups are activated manually, not automatically. That is, you can pick up a few first-aid kits and keep them in stock. When the screen of your smartphone will be stained with the blood of the hero, you can press the red button at the bottom right part of the screen, and a first aid kit will work. The same way the accelerator is activated by a blue button.
ResumeThe graphics in the game are pretty decent. The sound is also of good quality, though mainly consists of the sounds of shooting and explosions. In general, we can say that the game will surely appeal to fans of the genre. Though we will not vouch for others.
