Rovio’s Battle Bay recently proved that there surely is an cravings for high seas swashbuckling among the growing mobile online shooter market.
If you want something a bit more serious, strategic, and historically appear from your naval skirmishes however, World of Warships Blitz Hack could be for you.
Having just entered soft release in the Philippines, I thought I’d put the game through its paces.
The name might well have tipped you off, but World of Warships Blitz Cheats is from the same team that brought you Expression of Tanks Blitz. Exactly like that game, it started out its life from PC before pointing its prow towards mobile-land.
Essentially, the game boils down to shooting real life opponents and attempting to capture the other team’s territory by sailing to their flag area. It’s that you’re doing this with hulking multi-tonne battleships with the turning circles of, well, battleships.
As with its predecessor, World of Warships Blitz Hack isn’t your average run-and-gun action game. There’s a real sense of weight to its combat. It seems satisfyingly mechanical.
Every move you make here must be organized and thought through. The fact you are piloting huge ships means that it takes a while to get right up to rate and, crucially, turn. Aiming needs to be done slowly and gradually and delicately, lest you get away from the concentrating on reticule.
Thar she blows
The huge distance you engage your targets at plays a part too. You need to skilfully lead your pictures when engaging a moving concentrate on, whilst getting the powerful torpedo on aim for (for the ships that contain them) takes a dangerous combination to be both close up and side-on to your aim for.
That’s not even considering the necessity to released deck fires (there’s location-based damage here) and send out repair crews to patch yourself up mid-fight.
Basically, battle in World of Warships Blitz is difficult. Once I transferred free from the tutorial battles and into online fights against real players, I had taken repeated poundings from patient, wily opponents.
You should thing your movements through – charging straight into the fray without back-up is a sure-fire way to get blown from the water.
I have no doubt that World of Warships Blitz is going to be a massive hit with a sub-sector of players, equally it’s going to alienate those after an instant blast.
I’m less certain the way the game’s freemium structure is going to pan out. I came across the machine for purchasing new ships to be always a little opaque to state the least, and it remains to be observed how much of an advantage splashing out real cash on the fancier models will provide you with.
Given the demanding and tactical characteristics of the fight, though – not forgetting the developer’s pedigree – I’m self-confident that World of Warships Blitz will be an interesting skill-based multiplayer game when it finally hits the App Store proper.
