GameplayIn a distant time were Earth and its civilisation is no more, a crew of special soldiers has been receiving special training in order to maintain peace in space but especially to be able to conquer back the planet, as it has been infested by a zombie-like creatures known as the XADA/AZA. As Jake, the main character, you’re haunted by a message left by your uncle that simply says to never go back to Earth, as it is impossible (as he says) to recover the damage that has been done. With your team and special weapons called WarMechs, you are going to join a landing party in order to see what is happening since the crew has been receiving weird signals from the planet.The plot, though a bit familiar it sparks up all the right triggers to be appealing enough to try the game and find more about this crew and specially with Jake and his family. You will be in control of Jake’s WarMech, Avalon, with access to special functions, weapons and powers in order to deal in best way possible this expedition and specially with the creatures that keep lurking in.Implosion has a mixture of various gaming elements but it is mostly an action RPG / dungeon-crawler in which you have to guide Jake and Avalon through each level by collection special items and power-ups as well as defeating the maximum amount of XADA/AZA creatures as possible. At the end, a XADA/AZA boss will be expecting you and they are sure hard to defeat so be prepared. In a tutorial”esque” way, in the first level, you will be contact mostly all the time with your partner Diana, but most of all Zoe, that works in the control room and Napoleon, the Captain of the crew, and they will aid you throughout the level and furthermore but less occasionally throughout the game how to deal those aspects mentioned earlier.The controls are fairly simple to handle with as you control a left stick for motion and on the right a circle pad system in which you have access to Avalon’s weapons and power-ups in order for you to progress throughout the game. And as mentioned before, as part of the RPG component of the game, you are able to further develop, evolve and acquire new WarMechs for Jake’s arsenal so you are able to witness various kinds of attacks and power-ups. There all also common features that belong to the entire crew known as the Ark System, which allows you to further develop the crew’s capabilities by collections special itens in-game, as mentioned earlier.
LongevityFirstly you will have access to a trail version which allows you to play only the first levels, just as a teaser for the real and full game, which has (for now) four chapters with eight to ten levels each. Though the main campaign is short, you will also have access to the Expert Mode, where will be way more interesting by also being way more difficult.
Battery and PerformanceYet another game that is showing that mobile gaming has become a serious thing and endeavour by matching various home console requirements by highlighting its performance that excels even with the massive amount of resources that has to deal with, but alas it comes with a price, as I would advise you to have a charger around as the game highly demands battery resources, so be prepared for expectable “drops”.
Graphics and SoundTwo of the main features to notice are indeed the stunning graphics (with HD quality cinematics and gameplay) but also with a unique game style with high regard to detail and also a soundtrack that helps you connect with the game and its plot as it has the ability to immerse you in the story just nicely. Another aspect that demands high praise is indeed the full-on detail voice acting, a feature that you don’t see many developers betting on, but with the case of Implosion it was indeed a very neat feature.
Ads and In-App PurchasesThough the early mention of the difference of a trial version and a full (paid) version, Implosion does not have any ads throughout the game and does not have any special currency for bonus features or elements.
ConclusionImplosion is a gem in the gaming world and available in the Play Store that I would highly recommend to at least try it once. It is not usual to see a game that pays high attention to detail (from the soundtrack to the amazing graphics) as well as conceiving a quite appealing plot with very well done voice acting to accompany with. Implosion is overall quite impressive and it is perceptible with Rayark Inc. Studios took their to make it, because it was indeed done just right.
The pride and joy of Rayark Inc. Studios, a taiwanese developer studio, is Implosion – a game that has been in the making for almost two years and finally Android users are able to experience and witness that “it takes a little time to achieve greatness”. With a interesting yet somewhat familiar plot, stunning graphics and great voice-acting, does it fully deliver to their desired market? Continue on reading to find out.
