Guns of Mercy is a game for whenever you just want to blast a lot of alien brains out, and we do mean lots. The closest thing to the trigger happy pixelated gore-fest that was Broforce for PC, Guns of Mercy has you operating a dude in an orange suit who rides an elevator to levels (haha) infested with aliens of every shape and size. This game does the utmost justice to pixel art, showing a rare level of detailing even with just pixels. The neon coloured aliens and brightly lit environments will fill your heart with glee just as much as the fact that you will probably be shooting down several aliens every second. The bullets are unlimited and the control you have over the ranger is that you can move him across the screen and choose the angle of his gun by using a slider at the very bottom of the screen.
This allows for sure shots every single time but is not as challenging as the best shooters on the mobile platform are. Nevertheless, Guns of Mercy has a charm of its own, which mostly involves the gratuitous killing of aliens in an arcade format. Plus, there’s a huge glowing boss to defeat! Another thing to look out for is the cool Meka you get to operate occasionally. It spews fire and shoots two bullets at a time and delivers the kind of explosive justice that is fun to watch. The ranger can be upgraded with the coins you collect by killing extraterrestrial life forms and you can earn gems by watching ads or by purchasing them with real money.
Guns of Mercy is one game you should have on your phone because it is not frustratingly hard( unlike Don’t Get Spiked or the plain evil Flappy Bird) but still makes you want to play for the glorious vision of rampage and destruction that it offers you.
