Undead Carnage: Redemption is a kind of a platformer with elements of action in which you will be faced with the dead. Do not believe in the dead? The main character of the game named Freddy didn't believe in them, as well, until one day he returned to his hometown and expressed the desire to visit the grave of his late wife. As soon as he took the first step across the cemetery, the ground beneath his feet began to crack and break apart, and from under it not quite decomposed dead and centuries-old skeletons started to get out to see the world.
Development of events and the gameplayBy coincidence, Freddie finds in his hands a huge cleaver and a good old repeating Winchester. However, we failed to determine the number of rounds in it, but we can safely say that they are not infinite and get restored only during the fight with the dead using the very large knife that is extremely similar to a machete. There's so much blood in the game as you have not seen either in any other game, or in all games for Windows Phone combined.
The amount of dead in this game is amazing, and some of them are truly dangerous individuals. Those that roam in crowds can be easily destroyed by cold weapons. The main thing when you meet them is not to be in the middle of the crowd. At the same time, the skeletons are a real danger, because their destruction requires a lot of energy. With the help of a gun or magic (yes, by the way, it is also available) you can quickly deal with one skeleton, but they usually don't appear one by one, and a fight with knives doesn't bode anything good.
That's because the skeletons as well have a weapon in their hands that, on the one hand, looks like a chainsaw (judging by the sounds and the movements of skeletons who are trying to saw the main character), and on the other hand, it can shoot. Each destroyed skeleton falls apart and releases the bloody heart into the sky that you need to catch to revive the main character.
Controlling featuresControlling in the game is performed by using a multi-positional joystick and virtual buttons some of which can be combined to use magic. However, in such cases, you should know that the energy that is spent on the magic is in addition the ammunition for firearms, and the only one use of spells deprives you of the ammunition. In the upper right corner, there's an icon with a machete. Pressing and holding it down, you can choose another weapon with the multi-positional joystick, in case there is something to choose from, of course.
ResumeIn truth, the controlling provokes mixed feelings. It is really very versatile, but it has a problem with responsiveness, and you will surely bump into it during the game. The graphics in the game are incomprehensible, as well - everything seems to be drawn qualitatively, but there is some carelessness in the animation which, apparently, has been conceived this way. In general, the game is designed for true fans of the genre and for nobody else.
