The End of the world (Is Awesome!)
I’ll have to admit, I have been playing Apophis Apocalypse for a pretty long while. Locating all the secrets, doing all the boss battles, and such and such. Why? Let me explain…
The story in this game is amazing. A man named White Johnson witnesses a huge asteroid destroy his entire world. However, he manages to somehow survive, but he is very slowly dying from radiation. You have to find these anti-radiation pills before you die.
Along the way, you meet several different characters with their own charm and personality, and some even assist you in finding these pills. However, not everyone is your friend, as some have mutated and try to kill you.
The story is, overall, dark as you will see different people being killed, and some enemies are darn-right frightening. It adds to the overall tone of the game, and it is executed very well. Once the asteroid hits, it’s a little slow getting into the game, but it all pays off has you continue on.
The presentation in this game is actually very impressive. The graphics are top-notch, and the character and enemy designs are just magnificent. However, I encountered a little lag during my game, which would be okay, if it didn’t happen during random instances, like a boss battle.
Your character is very customizable, if not completely. You can customize your clothes, your skin colour (you can make yourself green!), and several different other traits. However, it seems a little too daunting, as the menu’s are not very organized or clear. I had to go through several different menus to find my AK-47, which was a little frustrating.
The gameplay plays out a little like Riviablo and Far-out. The combat is very identical to Riviablo, except guns are king and ammunition is limited. You can upgrade your weapons with skill trees. But like I said before, getting to these upgrade menus is very confusing and frustrating.
Boss battles are completely insane. Even the first boss battle I had difficulty trying to beat it. However, when you do, you are showered with rewards and experience, which kept me playing it. The combat can get a little stale after a while, however, as there is a lack of skills and combat attacks.
Overall, this is a genuine game, but a few minor problems hold it back from being a great game. I will give this game an 8.75.
