PlayStation Mobile spotlight: Gun Commando
Do you like old school first person shooters? Do you own a PlayStation Vita or a certified PlayStation Mobile device? If the answer to both questions is yes, then we at Green Hill have some great news for you!
We’re very proud to announce the release of Gun Commando, an “old-school, new-cool” first person shooter, developed in collaboration with Abstraction Games & Ripstone Publishing, and coming to your PlayStation Mobile device this week!
Gun Commando is a distinctly classic first person shooter that combines 8-bit graphics with visceral game-play, in the likes of Wolvenstein and Duke Nukem. You play as Jack Bennett, a weapon-loving alien-hating gun-for-hire; that is called in to save the world from the invading aliens.
Alongside the story – sublimely visualised by comic book legend Romano Molenaar – and the great retro look, it features a unique weaponry upgrade system that rewards players’ skill and accuracy, allowing you to upgrade to the big guns faster if you’ve got what it takes. And you’ll be needing the big guns as the aliens are a force to be reckoned with!
If there’s one thing we think makes this game stand out, it’s the way you are able to control the on-screen action. We believe the touch screen controls rival that of the traditional mouse and keyboard setup, and for the first time allow you to really play a first person shooter on a touch device.
The secret of our controls is the additional momentum we apply when aiming, allowing you to turn and respond blazingly fast, but at the same time allow you to be very precise. We’re not fans of on-screen buttons, as we feel you need the tactile feedback from the buttons in order to be in full control, so we allow you to use your thumbs anywhere on the screen.
With these controls you’ll be able to control Jack Bennett with unmatched precision. In fact, we found out that with a little practice you can kill enemies even faster with our controls, than with a mouse and keyboard!
Epic boss battles, ingenious level design (even if we do say so ourselves), the old school look and feel, Romano Molenaar’s superb comic cut-scenes, big guns and unique and intuitive controls for touch screens make this game really worth your time.
Gun Commando will be available to download from the PSM store on 23rd January, priced at £2.19/€2.79 and is available for all PlayStation Mobile certified devices including the PS Vita. Don’t forget to check out the Green Hill Games Facebook page for updates on all our games.
