BackStab is the new action, adventure title from Gameloft. The good news is that it is now available in the AppStore. Today we present you a full detailed review of the game.
Let’s start off by plot, we will be thrown into the world of 18th century pirates starring Henry Blake, a British Royal Navy officer, unjustly accused of treason to the homeland. Henry is “forced” to redeem his name and become a killer without anything to lose, so ready for anything. The gameplay takes place in a 3D environment where you can move freely, surrounded by stunning graphics that will accompany us throughout the game. Scenarios and environments are reproduced faithfully. The scenarios and environments are rendered faithfully and so we really find ourselves in Sambrero eighteenth century.
When you start the game apart from a brief explanatory video that shows the murder of a Spanish sailor. We are in the main menu where we decide to start a new game, or possibly to continue the previously launched, and the usual settings. We can customize most of our first game experience by entering the Audio menu, which adjust effects, voices and music, then in the section commands we can set the sensitivity of the touch screen and select left-handed version of the game. In “Advanced”Finally we may choose different aspects of the game, as the y-axis inversion, the free-running or running automatically.
We also have the option of selecting the preferred language, because the game is available in 9 different languages. We also find an entire section, showing all objectives and unlockables. As the last tab, find the illustrations: special content that will be unlocked during the game by checking from time to time, in which we run in the coffers.
Clicking on New Game, We can choose the slot to save progress or to load those achieved previously. This is a great way to keep more gaming sessions started at the same time allowing other family members or friends to play the same way without compromising the progress of our game.
Immediately after the flight, we will find ourselves in a new area where we will learn to use the main controls of the game such as directional walk or run and rotate freely. Henry is equipped with a sword and we will learn how to fight. Once you’ve killed a couple of enemies, we will continue to master the controls of climbing and running over the rooftops. We will also use a gun that will destroy a barrel full of gunpowder, and create a passage through a wall due to the explosion. Towards the end of the first chapter, we’ll also use a cannon to destroy the two enemy ships and small boats.
Already these first information gives us a good understanding of the dynamics of this title and the gameplay far from limited. The scenery and landscapes do not only serve as a framework for our adventures we offer, but sometimes necessary to continue interaction in the game.
