sanctum

I’ve recently bought an offer for Sanctum 2 on Steam, and while at the start I was a bit skeptic, I must say that I like this mix between a Tower Defense and an FPS.

Sanctum 2 is the sequel to the world’s first Tower Defense/FPS hybrid game
Pick from four unique character classes and take up the mission of protecting the Cores from hordes of mysterious aliens. In Sanctum 2 you play your character exactly the way you want through the new and extensive customization system. Pick your own loadout of towers, weapons and perks, and pick well, because you are humanity’s last defense against the hordes set out to destroy it.

The normal cost of the complete bundle that includes the game + 5 DLC it’s around 23 € on Steam, but if you like it I suggest to put it on your wishlits and wait for some offer, the game it’s a bit old and so offers should be frequent, I got it with a discount of the 70%

The game has a great graphics, still it’s playable on my crappy computer, and both the solo campaign and the online co-op multiplayer are funny enough, so let’s see now some detail about this game:

Bravada Bravada is the new game from Ukraine developers Interbellum Team that features a cheery little story. This game differ from most of the others for it’s gameplay, in short it’s a mix of a vertical scroller with RPG and turn based strategic game.

Story and Setting:

The game follows the story of a young dwarf who has yet to acquire his own beard and dreams of having his own adventures. When he is awoken from his dreams his only adventure is looking after chickens but all is not what they seem when he enters the chicken coop. The chickens were being mind controlled and they attacked him on sight. Its up to him to save the chickens and slay the slimes that are controlling them. This is only the beginning of our young heroe’s story and the mystery of why he hasn’t grown a beard will be revealed in a humorous tale. The story will take you to many different locations based on different locales including forests, beaches, caves and dungeons. The story is told using hand drawn cutscenes and Zelda style voice acting (grunts and hums).
