Supershot is a top down puzzle of the likes of Hitman GO and Superhot. In this game, you guide your character through mazes infested with the enemies. The main concept of this game is that time moves only when you do. You can use stealth or brute force to create a break in time and execute all the enemies and have a whole lot of fun in the process.
The way this works is you can move to a strategic position or just boldly walk up to the enemy and shoot them in the face and they won’t even retaliate. No, it is not that easy. The enemies do shoot back but the bullets only travel when you move. The game suffers greatly due to the characters being so tiny.
Do not be fooled by the icon or how the menu appears because those graphics are miles apart from what you actually get in the game. While the graphics are not that bad, the icon and menu do raise expectations unfairly and one ends up feeling cheated. The soundtrack, while pretty nondescript does not intrude into the somewhat pleasant experience of playing this game. There are various levels with varying difficulty and these are sufficiently challenging right from the first level so that’s a relief.
VERDICT – SUPERSHOT
A lack of defined objectives makes the gameplay quite bland. There could have been various challenges like a time-based round or one to solve the game with the least number of bullets fired and so on. These additions would definitely have made replayability an option. There is no mission, no target except eliminate all the bad guys. Time to test your target practice skills by slugging it out in Supershot. Are you game?
