It’s Halloween madness as you destroy vampires & werewolves galore!
Hardcore gamers won’t be able to contain their excitement when they get their hands on Nom Nom’s summer MMO RPG release, Monster Madness Online, Battle for Suburbia. I was lucky enough to get a preview of their open beta at this year’s GDC 2014 and it did not disappoint. The fast action gameplay made it almost impossible for me to keep up, but just as important, for a first person shooter, you will not get bored for a second.
The team at Nom Nom have created their own multiplayer online service called Playverse. The service enables users to chat in real time, see those whom you are playing with, invite players to parties, support achievements, add friends, go between sessions with them, integrates leaderboards and all of it supports either a mobile, Linux, Web browser, IOS, Android, Steam experience.
Beat back the invasion with rapid fire gameplay
Think of it as Halloween on steroids! The kids of Monster Madness Online— Zack Fowler (the Nerd), Andy Gomez (the Skater dude), Jennifer Sweeney (the Cheerleader), and Carrie Rosenberg (the Goth) — are on a mission to beat back this insidious invasion, block by block, and then take the fight to the enemy’s mother ship and beyond. Nothing but vampires, ghouls, werewolves, and more to destroy.
You assume any number of characters, acquire as many weapons as you can, and choose to either go out on your own or support your team as you destroy monster upon monster. Even cooler, the game supports streaming technology. Users will barely notice the upgrades as the game downloads continually without disruption to gameplay.
Characters have access to a ton of different weapons from chainsaws to grenade launchers to shotguns to magic spells, all of which are customizable. The depth of gameplay is through the roof with very detailed weapon stats, including total ammo, how fast a weapon refires, precision targeting, to name but a few. Lots of consumables as well as you proceed through different levels.
Pros: Pure adrenaline rush for those in love with first person shooters. Lightening fast gameplay and unique online multiplayer service that will certainly attract gamers. Available on just about every gaming platform possible. Streaming technology for uninterrupted gameplay.
Cons: None (with the exception of pricing, which we won’t know until the game is commercially released)
Nom Nom has a hit on their hands and I encourage all hardcore gamers to give this one a try when it launches later this year.
