Phoenix II – welcome to hell
Device top-down shooters is that their General line has not changed for over a quarter century – the airplane is flying to meet him several of the same (but smaller), he shot them. Nothing new for many years – the authors wind effects, coming up with the story, put the game in a wild setting (an alternate World war II, for example), but the principle is the same – a plane in the sky warrior. Game Phoenix II is the beaten track, but still, you will find something to surprise you – in the sleeve of this unassuming, seemingly taymkillera a lot of cards.
Let’s start with the fact that the usual balance of “big aircraft VS small aircraft” there is simply no. You have the impressive size of the space thing, but enemies just the same. And enemies is not a lot not more than three or four on the screen; rasselas wing, they occupy the entire area. You would think that from a smaller number of actors the game will lose in entertainment – but whatever.
The first emotion coming from Phoenix II – “AAAAAAA!!!”. The second a little more meaningful, but it is impossible to print even with a hone. The thing is that the opponents, even though few in number, instantly cover the whole field shots. You are frantically maneuvering, trying – no, not to avoid falling, and to cover the reactor, the beating heart of your ship. In other words: to hurt a wing or the nose can be, but to save the reactor any forces. Second. Because of such a tight flow still can not hide the authors came up with an interesting thing – as soon as you collect the required amount of colored spheres can shoot in field with bundles of energy, which neutralize the enemy, um, bullets.
In the end, the game looks absolutely wild way: the ship is torn through network Blaster charges, charges spectacu, discharges it violently spits fire in response and sooner or later dies – there are no missions as such (except for the daily bonus), you just try to survive as long as possible.
This whole insane farce is getting crazier by the fact that the artists painted the world with colors believed Castaneda. Everything is very bright, pulsating, vibrant and colorful. Spots blurred before my eyes floating in circles, feeling like he ate something forbidden. Complements the picture and I didn’t think – sound: so true strike Blaster charge space about the metal one did not. Boom!
Phoenix II – the game is free, so your donations are, of course, no one will refuse. But it will be just donations, not the money given under the threat of extortion. Largely because the tangible goals in Phoenix II, again, no – you just chase the metal of the villains in the middle of alpha Centauri. And do it while you’re having fun – and that Phoenix II was fun, not necessary to pay anything. You can certainly go crazy, try to collect all 40 available for play vehicles, discover their community and to storm the highest positions of the ranking. But don’t – the beauty of Phoenix II in its immediacy.
