In this Ipad Review Wrap-Up we look at two new time wasters, the zombie infested Left 2 Die and the bagpipe infested BraveSmart
Left 2 Die
In Left 2 Die it is literally you against the world, as you choose a character and take on hordes of different zombies throughout different location with different objectives like kill x amount of zombies or take out x amount of a certain type of zombie etc. Also a survival mode where as the name implies you need to stay alive. The game also comes with a multiplayer mode which includes co-op and Deathmatch.
The Equip menu where you can upgrade your current weapons and also buy new ones. You can also buy new characters and all this can be done with the currency you earn in the game. You have a total of three different weapons at all time, one primary which are machine guns, shotguns etc, and you can also have a secondary for when the primary runs out of ammo, and the secondary has unlimited ammo but isn’t as powerful. Then theres the superweapon which you basically charge up while playing and get it for a limited amount of time.
Left 2 Die is a nice looking time waster and it packs enough levels and zombies to keep you bot entertained and yet challenges the most hardcore gamer enough to make you come back from time to time to kill off some more zombies.
BraveSmart is a addictive little construction/building/strategy gem with a twist of puzzle elements added on top. There are characters running around on a set map leaving behind different resources for you to combine, and the different characters leave behind different types of resources, it is your job to link three resources together to build bigger and stronger buildings until you fulfilled the quest at hand. But as the game progresses the challenges gets harder and more difficult and the strategy aspect really shines through in some of the levels where you need to really wrap your brain around how you are going to finish off a certain project without filling the screen with different smaller buildings which happens, a lot.
Bravesmart is a game for those that like to test their brain and also kill some time while at it. It is addictive and has a great set of replay value since the characters randomly move across the map giving you new options every time you play it.
