Freeblade – is a mighty imperial knight, a major combat unit capable mow hundreds of enemies, including heavy armored vehicles, radically changing the course of the battle. During the Great Crusade, which was to unite all people in the galaxy under the banner of the Imperium, these valiant warriors were known as the Legendary Freeblades. They covered themselves in glory and then, centuries later, continues to terrify their opponents, becoming a mercenary space, the life of each of them – this is his personal crusade against the enemies of humanity.
Becoming a knight Freeblade, noble disclaims all: his own name, gender, friends, relations. For some, it becomes a personal tragedy, but there is no alternative for one reason or another. Others, on the contrary, see the meaning of his life and the protection of war against the enemies of humanity, want to become famous, and it is a good chance to enter the annals of the history of 41 millennia. Freeblade anyone not specifically serves no one obeys. He joins a particular campaign and performs tasks, trying to do it as efficiently as possible. You – one of those knights who dedicated their lives to war. You – a huge walking robot hung with armor, guns and masterfully wielding monstrous chain sword.
Closer look at the universe of Warhammer 40K here
The game begins with the design of their robot, and you can decorate any part of the war machine, starting with the helmet and armor plates ending with the feet. True, at first by themselves, and there is nothing to execute, since the editor is very limited – or pay real money for quick access to all of his chips and buns, or earn them in battle. I did not pay, and quite normally circulated editor during missions.
Navel beauty, you can now go directly to the war. At the disposal of the knight three types of weapons:
heavy (gun megapulemet, heat guns);
homing (missiles or gun).
The first works well against small targets, like orcs or buggy. Although, if meltaganom arm, he very well and carries a heavy armored vehicles. However, rapidly it overheats, accordingly, it is quite difficult to use against small orcs, unless the lot. But even these minnows (in comparison with the robot) capable of mischief: throw grenades or shoot rockets.
Heavy gun works well for armored targets, but long enough recharges. Homing weapons coolest effectively makes any purpose and longest recharged (up to half a minute), plus a very limited ammunition. Correctly chosen weapons is very important for the successful completion of the mission.
By the way, the selection of weapons and armor is happening just before the task and not every job can be done with what is. It is necessary to match the level of equipment, and if the current mission does not fit, you need to improve the existing or create a new one. Better paid only ore, and the process is quick. For the creation of the new equipment is necessary to forge a refiner already available in stock, plus pay extra ore and wait for a decent amount of time – 3, 5, 10 or more minutes. Either pay gold to create the item immediately.
A few words on the local currency and useful things. There is ore, which is issued for carrying out missions as a bonus for the launch of search teams and achievements (earn 10 medals to finish the raid and three tons. N.). Yet it can be bought for real money. In addition, there is gold, which can also be bought, obtained by performing daily and weekly assignments (so-called memories of the great knights) and increase the level of the character. Equipment, in addition to that created in the forge, also found on the battlefield as trophies, plus issued for the successful completion of tasks.
As you can imagine, “ears» Free-to-play stick in Warhammer 40K: Freeblade from all crevices. The game wants your money, and wants very much to all the parties throws offers to buy this or that bonus pay for the resurrection of the battlefield or for pumping editor for the robot for new knights with unique guns and other buns. In addition, the proposed intrusive view video ads, for which he also gives certain bonuses – ore, blessings on the Bohl (temporary increase in the power of the robot, more experience, more trophies), the launch of the search party (found on the planet ore and equipment).
Nevertheless, it is quite possible to live without investing real money. At least until the third set of missions, I came without any problems, but the game gets harder and harder. Perform additional tasks even in the second set already causes strain and further pumped arms and armor. But while still wondering about this and here is interesting, that is about the fight, let’s talk.
In fact, before you rail shooter in the best tradition of the genre, perfect for touch devices. That is not necessary to control the robot – it runs itself, unfolding himself and even hand to hand fighting himself. All that is needed – choose the target and pass it to pieces. And the process of separation then beaten just gorgeous, aided 3D Touch.
So, a simple press on a specific area of the screen causes the robot to shoot in the direction of light weapons. You press a little harder on the screen, and zoom works – the picture is increased, which is convenient when you shoot at a crowd of small orcs. Click on the screen even stronger and fired heavy guns. Homing weapon is activated by double tapom.
If there is no support for 3D Touch, while heavy gun is activated by touching two fingers and it’s not very convenient to do in the heat of battle. So the new technology Apple has a right to life in the games and I’m sure in the future it will be in demand.
As for close combat, the main course – this time to press a button to deliver a punch or a regular critical. Do not have time to click on a specific period of time, get a slap on the enemy robot.
Graphically the game is mixed. The main character, that is, the knight Freeblade, drawn on excellent, just above all praise. A huge number of small parts, it’s all animated, synchronized moves, shines and, in general, looks beautiful. But if you talk about the enemy robots, orcs, military equipment – a feeling that they landfills-and not enough. Somehow they look coarse, angular, teksturki blurred effects minimum. This is especially noticeable during close combat. Although the explosions, the effects of the shots, which form the overall image filters – with them all in order.
As a result, the game is breathtaking on a bright, lush and colorful pictures, especially when most of it takes the knight, it is silent on the question of directness hands of developers. This iPhone 6s Plus it warms up as not warmed up no other that runs before the game, including the Infinity Blade.
By the sound of complaints. Explosions rattle of metal, machine-gun shot, rocket volleys, orcs cries – everything is good. Is that the kind of music very very discreet, but it’s a matter of taste.
What is the result? Demonstration game features 3D Touch clearly failed. I recommend to try the toy all owners iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. In addition, it is a very good rail shooter, especially for fans of the universe Warhammer 40K. But the Free-to-play immediately implemented in a rigid and intrusive form. One feels that the balance of the game is set on gutting purses. I’ve been playing the game since its release about a week, and has already strongly felt the pressure from the F2P. Most likely, in the near future, Warhammer 40K: Freeblade leave my iPhone. Yes, toy fun, addictive, but pay real and very tangible money ($ 5 or more) for virtual things specifically in this case, I’m not ready.
However, for the demonstration of 3D Touch developers great respect. After all, they have shown a good implementation of the technology not only to users, but also to other developers as well.
