Created from the Unity Engine Block Strike is a pixelated first person shooter for those with Android devices. With an insane number of game modes, various weapon skins and a health player pool the game has overcome simple design to become a staple Android FPS.
After completing the basic tutorial which covers controls and shooting players are let free on the Block Strike home screen where you can head to the shooting range, join a multiplayer game or repeat the tutorial. Controls are exactly as one would expect form a mobile title with a joystick on the left side of the screen and players able to direct their vision with the right side. Buttons for jump, shoot, reload and swap weapon are also located here.
For those that want to alter the controls slightly Block Strike includes this functionality with sensitivity options, button transparency, a lefty option and customisable buttons. The game also includes a number of general settings that let you alter your cross hair colour, have a hit maker indicate if your shots hit and a number of visual options (show damage, blood, bullet holes and others).
The wealth of options isn’t just limited to game settings though with plenty of weapons available that fall under the 3 game categories of main, secondary and melee. All up you’ve easily got over two dozen options here and each comes with their own damage, range and sound effects.
Each of these will serve you well as you play through the various game modes that Block Strike offers be it Team Deathmatch, Knife Mode, Gun Game, Hunter, Zombie Survival and many others. Your progress in these will also earn players experience and money to be spent on more weapons and skins (some of which only drop from special crates)
With many average shooters plaguing the mobile environment Block Strike stands apart with it’s well designed features and really strong mobile gameplay. While none of them are particularly unique few games on the mobile market incorporate all the FPS features into a single game, let alone skins and an experience system.
