Call of Duty: World at War – Second World War Again!!!

Call of Duty World at War returns you to the Second World War, but now besides the Germans, you’ll fight against the Japanese army. You play with American or Russian soldiers. The game is so tense that you will feel like you’re right in the Second World War. Weapons are mostly the same except for two new weapons: flamethrower and bayonet. Flamethrower is certainly the most interesting weapon that is very effective against Japanese fast attacks. Both of these new weapons will be used in the American campaign.


Mission in which you fight against the Japanese army were different because the Japanese use a different strategy. In these missions you must constantly be on guard because Japanese will always make ambushes and traps. They will often be hidden in the trees which can be very inconvenient. Also this Call of Duty is more bloodier than the other Call of Duty games. Also, the explosion will cause opponents to lose body parts which leads to a lot more blood. The game is very realistic so wounded soldiers will try to drag to the shelter.

Multiplayer is the same as in Call of Duty 4, so gaining levels you get new weapons and perks. Perks are special abilities that grant you a bonus. In addition to the basic modes Capture the Flag mode is returned and there is a new mode called Nazi Zombies in which you must defend the house from zombies. By killing zombies you get points which you spend on repairing the barricades or you can purchase new weapons or ammunition. Basic modes have some new things such as tanks, which you can use. Also you get a bonus if you make a certain kill streak. For example, when you make five kills you get airstrike and when you make seven kills you get angry dogs that kill for you.

Graphics is improved compared to Call of Duty 4 which means that it is a high-quality graphics.


Platypus is the Squishiest Shooter Game Ever

A tiny spaceship, the last hope of (insert something you’re cheering for here), flies towards the top or the right of the screen, spraying a hail of destruction in front of it. Powerups are collected, enemies shot down, boss spaceships blown apart. We’ve seen it all so many times we’ve lost count … but we’ve never seen it like this!
Platypus, available from Reflexive Games for PC and Mac and published by Astraware on nearly all smartphone platforms, is a shooter game done in claymation. Not CGI masquerading as claymation; actual photographed clay. But is it just a gimmick, or does it accentuate and enhance a solid game? Let’s find out!

Best. Graphics. Ever.

As the name suggests, Platypus is a lively and colorful game, with vivid multiple scrolling backgrounds and bright-colored enemy spacecraft. Or aircraft, as the case may be … the entire game takes place in the skies of a claymation planet, which is good because we get to see all kinds of 3d landscapes. Just don’t make the mistake of thinking they’re not interactive, or you may crash into the power lines like I did!

Not only is Platypus beautiful, its graphics are used to good effect! Enemy ships become riddled with bullet holes, then finally blow apart in an explosion of gray and red clay as a tiny pilot parachutes out. And epic boss battles have you blasting at ships much larger than the screen itself, tearing them to pieces one chunk at a time.

Perhaps my only complaint about Platypus’ graphics is that they’re not squishy enough! For all that you blow things apart in a shower of clay, they still play an explosion sound effect that could be found in any other game. A “Play-Doh” mode with splattier sound effects would’ve been nice, and would’ve emphasized the theme. As it is, though, Platypus stands up to the best shooters to be found on any platform, which isn’t bad for a casual game.

So how does it play?

While its graphics are innovative, Platypus doesn’t break the mold when it comes to gameplay. It’s very easy to play, though, even on a device with a tiny screen. On my touchscreen Palm Centro, I just guided the ship around with either my stylus or the 5-way navigator, as it automatically shot at whatever was in front of me. A button could be used to start or stop firing, and it came in handy in levels where I was flying through minefields.

Unlike in many other games, there aren’t any smart bombs, and you don’t get to power up weapons in quite the same way. Instead, certain formations of enemy ships will drop items that you can use to gain optional weapons, which last for a certain amount of time. The more items you collect, the longer the weapon will last. Sometimes you can shoot the items to flip them over and change what kind of weapon you get.

These optional items are dispensed frequently, and just when you think you’ve seen them all, they toss something new at you — in one level I was throwing out volleys of rockets, and towards the end they gave me a lightning gun that cut a clean line through the screen. Sometimes I found rotating weapon pods that would circle my ship and put out extra firepower, and they were a lot of fun to combine with the rockets and lightning gun!

Spit and polish

Platypus benefits from an obsessive attention to detail, and all the little details add up. Like the bunches of fruit which come out of exploding ships … you can actually shoot them apart and collect individual pieces, which give differing point values! And I already mentioned the little pilots who parachute out of the larger ships. It’s things like this that make the game feel like a labor of love.

The sound effects are basic, and get the job done. But the music, while none too sophisticated, is incredibly catchy at times! Inspired by Commodore 64 game soundtracks, it’ll have you hooked from the very first classically 8-bit riff.

The one place where they could’ve added more detail is in the storyline. There isn’t any! The website says something about “The vast continent-spanning city of Collosatropolis” invading a peaceful country, but that’s the only place where I’ve seen it. Fortunately, the graphics pretty much tell the story by themselves.

The Upshot

I’ve been playing shooter games for a very long time, and Platypus can stand with the best of them. It doesn’t break new ground, but it doesn’t rely on its graphics, either … it uses them to enhance an already-solid game.

Probably the best comparison I can make is to the original Star Fox, called Star Wing in Europe. This Super Nintendo shooter was done in 3d polygon graphics, which was novel at the time. But it also had superb gameplay, and a memorable atmosphere and soundtrack.

Platypus is neither as epic nor as memorable as Star Fox. But it’s a fun shooter that’ll keep you playing for hours, and coming back to it after you’ve beaten it. And while the demo mode for its smartphone version is draconian (3 games … and leaving the game and coming back to it counts), the full version is worth picking up.


How to Make a Twisted Metal Car in an Online Game

Twisted Metal is a popular horror car game in which players advance through levels via car obstacles and destruction to learn the stories of the deranged characters throughout the game. Reduplicating the Twisted Metal car game completely is not possible without the appropriate sophisticated software. Thanks to modern technology, however, users can create their own car games online that possess characteristics that resemble the Twisted Metal car game and allow them to customize their version of the game to suit their personal gaming preferences.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

“Buffy The Vampire Slayer” is a video game made for many different game consoles, but I am referring to the XBOX addition.
Buffy The Vampire Slayer was introduced to XBOX in 2002. There is a sequel to this game, but I prefer the original game instead of the sequel. This game is rated “T” for teen, as it has some mild language and mild gore, but lots of violence.

The original cast members of the show appear in the game. The voices of the game characters are the actual voices of the cast members.

This game is very long. That is a good thing for people who are looking to master a game quickly. This game involves many different moves and secrets that will make your game playing experience a lot more fun.

I have been able to find some cheat codes for this game, but I believe that the codes are not worth entering. If you enter the codes it could affect the game play. My opinion is to just play the game, the way it was made to be played.

When I first played the game, I thought it would be your typical “Fighting” game, but this has a story behind it. The plot thickens every time you complete a level. I have seen many reviews giving this game good and bad reviews. I myself give this game 4 out of 5 stars.

The music is great, and the action is great, but the characters have a tendency to repeat there comments throughout the game and it can become very irritating.

I have also beaten this game. It took roughly 6 months to a year to beat the game on the easiest level. I have attempted to play this game on a harder level and it really is harder. “GO FIGURE”

There were a few faults that I noticed with this game as well. I noticed that if you put the cheat code in for invincibility, you cannot die, but if you fall down a cliff or a building, your game will freeze and you will have to restart. If you restart the game you will start at the very beginning of the chapter you left off at, especially if you didn’t reach the auto save section. The only other fault that I found with the game is what I mentioned earlier about the same lines repeated.

The sequel to Buffy The Vampire Slayer is “Buffy The Vampire Slayer Chaos Bleeds”

If you are a person who enjoyed the series while it was televised, I believe you would like this game. It is fun to play, and hard to master. It takes patience and plenty of time to beat. When you beat it on easy you can always try different levels.

Happy Gaming
