Burn your foes down
Battle Bay is about a nice day spent on the seas, roaming around on boats with all your friends and bombing the enemy team because you can never really have fun without blowing someone up. Battle Bay by Rovio, the creators of the mobile game staples Angry Birds is an absolute must play. The premise of the game is enjoyable and unique. It doesn’t have the zippy mechanics of Riptide, though and the movements are rather slow. The aim is greatly assisted and there is not much real skill involved there. Which is great if you are just looking to kill some time with this game.
The graphics are pretty good and the constantly roiling waters make for an interesting change in the battleground every passing second. The crests and troughs can be used to your advantage. Each game puts you in a team of five facing another five random players online. There are two ways to win the initial games, by killing everyone on the opposite team or by occupying a specially marked area in the playfield for a certain amount of time. If you manage to take advantage of the nooks and crannies and capture the flag, you can easily win the game without much shooting because the other players will mostly be busy in destroying each other. However, just sitting isn’t much fun and so you should venture boldly into the fray and decimate the ‘unfriends’. Why are they called ‘unfriends’? Is it an attempt at being too politically correct? What? Is no one an enemy anymore? Well, we disagree. Burn your foes down.
The game also has a host of upgrades and players that you can add to enhance your experience but that involve a lot of gems and waiting. The game states outright that the in-app purchases will accelerate your progress at the very beginning. Surely though, you can overcome those upgrades with a little bit of strategy if you don’t want to spend. However, if you do start liking this game, our guess is that you just might want to.
