Welcome to another installment of Monday Savings For The Everyday Gamer. If you are unsure about what’s going on here, please refer to previous articles for more information. Today we are going to venture off into Nintendo World once again to check out yet another portable gem for their 3DS system. Let’s move on to find out exactly what I’m talking about, shall we?
The sixth title in our collection is a two dollar game for the 3DS that goes by the name of Gunman Clive. You play the role of a gun toting, platform jumping hero, who has to rescue a damsel in distress by doing the only thing he knows how to do, shoot down bad guys. In addition to this, a number of different jumping puzzles, obstacles, and devious bosses will try to impede his progress at all times as well. Sounds pretty simple right? Well, it is, but there is definitely a high level of difficulty here that will keep you on your toes throughout the entire experience.
As always, let’s get the bad stuff out of the way first. My only major complaint here is that the game goes by in almost a blur, and only took me about an hour or two to complete. The other problem I had was the fact that there are no multiplayer modes or leaderboards to speak of whatsoever. Would have been nice to have something to do outside the main quest, but in the end, this issue wasn’t really a deal breaker for me, because the game itself was a whole lot of fun to play.
Now it’s time to end things on a good note. First of all, the controls are very easy to get a grasp of. Next comes the gameplay itself, which is like a combination of Mega Man and Mario put together, and as you already know, these are both incredibly awesome titles in their own right, so going into any further explanation isn’t really necessary here. The hand drawn 2D visual style is awesome too, and really makes you feel like you are in a wild west cartoon of some sort. Finally, it will only cost you a couple of dollars in digital cash to enjoy this awesome title, so for around the price of a soft drink you can unleash some anger in a positive way, instead of going on a caffeine induced rampage, a win win for everybody right?
If you are looking for a fun, stylish 2D sidecsroller shooter, look no further, Gunman Clive is the game for you, download it now.
