Ricochet Kills is a free Windows Phone game which will measure your skills of guessing and your idea of physics which you need to aim to kill some enemy Ninjas.
What is Ricochet Kills About ?
This is a physics based game where you, a Ninja, tries to kill enemy Ninja using Star Blades. That sounds easy, but the problem is they aren’t standing in a queue to die, but are surrounded by walls, barriers and at different heights. The Star Blades are called as “shurikens”.
Game Play :
So what you really need is a good idea of how the bouncing will work to reflect the blades to collide from one wall to another and make it reach the Ninjas. The Shurikens bounce off the walls and platforms which can cause explosions and unlock blockades by destroying electrical boxes. It becomes even tougher in higher level where opponents are on moving platforms which makes it difficult for you to predict.
That images must have given you clear idea on how exactly it works. The difficult part is you don’t have a lot of blades and they don’t keep on reflecting from walls forever. So if you don’t aim it correctly, you will be wasting a lot time seeing it bouncing left and right.
You only have 6 and less shurikens used means you get more points. It is possible for you to throw out all the blades which sometimes gives you an edge killing the ninjas as they disappear for one second every 2 seconds which makes the blade miss them. However, doing this every time might not just work.
There are 72 maps are available, all for free. The game is sponsored by PubCenter because it is free, but ads do not interfere with the gameplay.
There are three stages with 18, 36 and 54 levels each. You need to make certain number of points to get into second level, so passing all the levels will not be enough.
Overall its a good time killer, but I found it bit tough even at early stage. You might take sometime to pass through first stage but once you are used to it, you can make use of special power ups etc. to finish it quickly.
Also there is scope of improvement in graphics which is not at par. I would suggest the developer to bring in HD level graphics to make the user experience even better.
At the end, I will say try it and if you are good with aiming this is an excellent time killer game. Go get it.
