Pixel Gun 3D: Survival shooter & Battle Royale
Pixel Gun 3D: Survival shooter & Battle Royale review
Pixel Gun 3D takes a lot of gaming concepts in the role-playing and shooter genres and combines them with pixelated block environments reminiscent of Roblox and Minecraft. The result is a unique game that looks familiar but plays differently.
Concept - 4/5
Pixel Gun 3D combines aspects of block world building, RPG-style play, open world exploration and mining to get rewards. There are different rewards that you play towards, and the game also offers different gameplay modes. In the battle royale mode, you fight against other players on a shrinking island to be the last man standing. In co-op mode, you play with up to three other players on 8 maps and can collect coins and other prizes. You can also go into Deathmatch mode with up to 8 players, on local and worldwide servers and chat with other players on a private server.
You can get rewards for watching ads, and you will also get rewarded for connecting your account to social media. There’s a wide array of weapons and levels to cover in this game.
Visuals - 4/5
The game is pixelated, and the block environment is similar to Minecraft or Roblox with first-person shooting elements. That’s exactly what you get here. Everything is done to humorous effect, and you’ll appreciate the attention to detail that has been paid to this game. There is a vast variety of characters and guns, making the game feel fresh each time. However, the game seems like it’s trying to do too much at once and fails to carve a cohesive and authentic experience.
Thrill - 3.5/5
Pixel Gun 3D tries to do too much at once which makes you miss out on a potentially exceptional experience. In fact, you can’t even be sure how the developers wanted you to react to this game. The shooting isn’t great, the gameplay mechanics seem like a parody of better-known titles, and there isn’t much to make this game stand out. The best part about the game is the variety of modes that it offers and the fact that it provides quite the number of maps.
Controls - 4/5
There are several on-screen controls and buttons that you can use for shooting, selecting weapons, crafting, and moving around. The controls are made better by the fact that the UI is uncluttered and icons are well spaced out. Movement is generally fluid, and you can use the on-screen joystick or use your fingers to swipe and change direction. Seamless and intuitive controls are probably the best part of the game.
- Graphics are pulled of humorously;
- The game’s controls are easy to adapt to;
- Plenty of maps and game modes.
- The game doesn’t try to offer a unique experience;
- The shooting is lacking.
