We Are Doomed is a twin stick arcade shooter from Vertex Pop that is very easy to pick up, but very difficult to master! The game is very fun and addictive, and you should read our We Are Doomed review to see why we like it so much!
WE ARE DOOMED is a twin-stick shooter where you zap polygon baddies with an absurdly overpowered laserbeam.
Dive head-first into the action with reckless ambition, charge the SUPERBEAM, and zap everything out of existence in an instant. Chase high scores or just enjoy the beautiful explosion of geometry, colour and light.
In We are Doomed, you shoot swarms of enemies for points and collect multi-colored cubes and diamonds that will also help you to earns points as well as increase your super beam meter, which will eventually give you temporary invincibility. It will also allow you to shoot bigger laser beams and obliterate anything in sight, but this only lasts a few seconds so make every shot count to increase your score multiplier!
The further you progress, the bigger the enemy swarms will get, and the more obstacles you will have to avoid as they get in your way. A fast finger is definitely required in order for you to get through all 30 waves of madness in one piece!
We Are Doomed has two game modes: Waves and Endless. In Waves, you have 30 rounds with only two checkpoints which are set at wave 11 and wave 21. As you can see, the checkpoints are a bit on the thin side which adds to the challenge, as enemies can get really intense in later rounds. Also, new and thougher enemies are introduced every few to always keep you on hight alert.
The Endless mode is purely for experts only, for those of you who are capable and experienced enough to survive in this mode that will go on for as long as you can survive wave after wave of despicable and cruel enemies.
We Are Doomed is a very challenging game and only suitable in small doses, as it can get a boring when you’re doing the same thing over and over again… but then again, the same could be said of all arcade-style games.
As for the game’s presentation, I thought that the graphics were great – really colorful and vibrant. The graphics definitely fit the action and help you feel its hectic nature.
I must say that out of all the arcade twin-stick shooters available on the market I’d recommend We Are Doomed because of its gorgeous colorful art style, and its addictive nature. Both Endless and Waves mode have online leaderboards so you can also track your friend’s high scores and compare them to yours.
The game might feel a bit on the short side, but the addition of online the online leaderboards will definitely keep you coming back for more. It was doing this We Are Doomed review, and I hope you can have some fun of your own with this game!
