Remember the old space shooters? Of course, you do. In case you are too young to have played them, you would have certainly caught their revival. Turretz is an attempt at recreating the magic of blasting ships in space and it is a great one at that.
Turretz is like a simple shooter but a major component of the game is the fact that you can add upgrades to your spherical ship to make it a flying machine of death. You can buy a moon in a store as if it is the most normal thing to find a celestial object in your average marketplace. Other upgrades which are not as outlandish are guns and lasers. The shooting bit of the game is automated and your skill must come to the fore when you are manoeuvring the spaceship. The pixelated graphics will make you feel right at home and they also allow the developers to cram a lot of enemies into the limited area of your phone’s screen.
You will have to swirl around in intricate patterns as your rotating guns take down the multitudes of enemy ships swarming around you. At the end of the waves, a grotesque boss appears and you must defeat it too. The graphics are retro and in really bright pixels. While it may be a change of view from the slick mobile games you are used to, Turretz will nevertheless win you over with its old-school charm. Also, Turretz is by the publisher 111%, a studio that has made a name for itself with games like BBTan, FFTan, Lunar Blade and RoadStar. If you haven’t checked out these games, look at their portfolio and you might find something that’s right up your alley. Turretz is one of their best offerings so this will be a good starting point to exploring their work.
