Silly side-scrolling RTS Swords And Soldiers 2: Shawarmageddon may be just a few years overdue (it launched on Wii U again in May 2015), nevertheless it nonetheless is aware of methods to elevate a smile. Its meat-hungry armies of Vikings and Demons additionally make me want that I had an honest barbecue setup at hand, however that’s neither right here nor there. It’s out right this moment on PC after a protracted absence, and developed by Ronimo Games, higher recognized on PC now for the still-popular platform MOBA Awesomenauts. Below, a meaty launch trailer.
Swords And Soldiers 2 seems prefer it’s dealt with the hop again to PC gracefully. Our model of the game has extra data within the UI and an enormous bar of hot-keyed choices, which ought to assist in preserving your troops bolstered whilst you concentrate on the entrance traces. As with the unique Swords & Soldiers, it’s largely a game of tug-of-war, making an attempt to get the precise mixture of items lined as much as exploit the weaknesses of no matter troops are main your enemies formation. There’s a bit extra to it than that, together with multi-lane maps, nevertheless it’s largely a light-weight tackle a usually demanding style.
While usually targeted on the strategic, there’s just a few mild motion parts to the game, too. Certain particular spells require precision timing to position a wobbling reticle on the goal you need splattered, or simply mashing the mouse button for additional combo assaults. The sequel leans slightly extra on the fantastical aspect of issues. While there have been loads of magical items and assaults within the unique game, the sequel provides a complete military of demons, totally playable in skirmish and on-line modes. The game was apparently effectively acquired on Wii U – hopefully it may possibly nonetheless discover its area of interest on PC.
