Epoch Review: Excellent Cover Shooter Game, With Exquisite Graphics (Video)
Epoch is an excellent cover shooter available on the Google Play Store right now and we took advantage of having the LG Optimus G at hand in order to play the game. The title was part of a special price reduction, that brought the price down to 99 cents. It comes from Uppercut games and it takes up 500 MB by the way.
Epoch uses Unreal Engine technology and has a post apocalyptic setting. It gives you robot combat, 3D graphics and many types of enemy robots to fight against. There’s even a nifty storyline, that’s told through intercepts, bits and pieces of emails and such that you’ll find after each mission you complete.
You control a skinny, but powerful robot, that is part of a futuristic universe where the humans have lost the battle with machines. You control the robot and shoot other metallic critters, that will fire rockets, lasers, beams and bullets at you. The control is simple: you swipe to move the character from cover to cover, swipe down to hide, swipe up to pop up and tap the enemy to shoot at him. Environments are varied and they usually involve metallic junkyards.
There’s also an Arena mode with endless waves of enemies and upgrades are possible for armors, weapons and special abilities. The game gets a 9.8 out of 10 from us, since it’s excellent, especially when it comes to graphics and atmosphere. You can get it from here.
