Reviews for "Duty Hill"


gameplay was great! for a defend the hill/castle game. The only problem was its simplicity and lack of originality. perhaps mixing things up with IDK...

barriers that you can place,
morale effects in the enemies(shooting people all around 1 enemy cuases him to eventually get scared and run)
a first person view with the sniper, thats something I've never seen in this type of game!

heres the things I felt really worked,

good looking enemies
nice scenery
ability to choose between beefing up lower weapons and buying higher weapons (that choice really doesn't exist in most other games in the genre)

Old concept Sniper is OP Strawberry jam is stupid.

It's about average, better done then other defense games like it granted but still pretty done, and playing through it I tried out all the different weapons and after having them all and upgraded most of them I only ever Used the sniper rifle because it can shoot so fast (semi-auto) has next to unlimited piercing, does 1-2 shot kills, and has NO (or next to no) bloom making it impossible to miss with

Now I was going to give this a 7
but then the crap hit the fan, or more properly the strawberry jam hit the screen
I was trying out the other guns to see if anything could best the sniper rifle (no they can't) and while trying that and a sniper shot me while I wasn't really paying attention and trying to aim, and the screen got gushed over
what kind of moron came up with the mechanic of "Well he's about to die and needs to really pull off something awesome to get out of it... so instead of playing epic music or making things lose a bit of color and putting a flashing red border or a beeping sound, LET'S JUST TOTALLY BLIND THEM"

because yes, when someone shoots you in a game like this, it makes perfect sense to make it so you can't see what the heck you're doing -sarcasm-

all that being said, I think I've made my point clear for my score
and before anyone rages "oh your score sucks"
it's a 6
that's ABOVE average
and compared to other masterpiece games on this site that's actually being honest (if not generous)

I see others say more guns and variety and I will agree with that, but I would rather see balance come before variety, put some time between shots on the sniper for crying out loud, (and some small bloom on the pistol because that one is also pretty broken)

Pretty nice

Pretty nice game, actually.

Though, it needs more weapons, probably.

Horrible replayability

If you're going to have a game where you earn cash to buy guns with, make sure you have a decent variety of guns rather than simply letting you be able to buy all the guns within 10 levels. Because after you're done with those guns, earning money is no fun. Pretty much this game suffers horribly from lack of variety.

Too easy!!!

I really loved the graphics of this game, but there really isn't any challenge in this at all. Maybe if the sniper rifle was nerfed, there might be more challenge involved; because after maxing it out, the game lost its fun.

Overall a nice experience while it lasted! However i do believe the effort of the author deserves more attention because after several minutes into this, it became repetitive and boring. Still, a commendable effort :D
