LilDemonsSplatter is a very original first-person shooter in which we will run through a closed location and shoot funny demons. The developers compare their child with the game "King of the Hill". In the vastness of the location, there really are small hills in the form of bridges, but you won't be able to stay there for a long time, since you will constantly be attacked by a crowd of colorful monsters. At first glance, this roaring crowd causes no other emotion but laughter. Fear is totally out of the question. However, despite the quite amusing appearance, any contacts with these characters will take a lot of health from our mentee.
Due to the fact that in most cases the demons gather in a small group, the optimal combat tactics is very similar to retreat. You run a short distance, then hide behind a cover, then make sure that the magazine of your weapon is full and you can slowly peek around the corner to shoot those who will stand first. Then you run again, hide, look out and shoot. If the controlling was a little bit more convenient, we could continue shooting for much longer while moving not backwards but sideways, and at that we wouldn't risk the health of the main character, but things in the game are exactly as they are.
Health and power-upsJust about the center of the location there is a small room. If you see a vertical beam of red above it, this means that there lies a first aid kit which can be used to restore the health of the mentee. No beam - no kit, and in this case it is better not to risk even to enter that room. The monsters may drop in after you, and you will have no chances to get out alive. In the upper right corner of the screen, there are four touch buttons with the images of a shoe, a stopwatch, a shield and a weapon. These are small bonuses that you can use when they are active.
The readiness and duration of use of the bonuses can be determined by to what extent they are filled with paints. That is, for example, if you see that the button with the shoe has only begun to fill with green paint, you can already use it, and then the speed of your moving through the location will increase significantly. While you is running, the button will get emptied. It happens pretty quickly. The button with the stopwatch includes deceleration mode (if you're familiar with the game Max Payne, you know what we mean). The shield with the weapon are activated similarly and represent invulnerability and maximum damage respectively.
Gameplay featuresAnd now the most interesting part. What do you think, how these buttons activating additional features, get filled with paints? It's pretty simple and difficult at the same time. The fact is that after the destruction of the demons (you remember that they are of different colors, don't you?), some blots of a substance are left on the floor. So, by collecting these blots you will fill with paints those very buttons that activate additional features. Naturally, the color of a slain monster will fit to the particular bonus.
ResumeTo prevent you from believing that it will be very simple to collect blots, we remind you that most often the demons stick together in a group. That is, if you rush to collect blots, you will surely encounter those who run towards you. By the way, it's not always an easy task to destroy the monsters. The small ones quickly fly apart, but the big ones can divide and even explode. However, in the event of an explosion they destroy their own allies. In general, the game is really funny and very exciting. We recommend it to all fans of first-person shooters.
