Stealth Action Epic Riddick: The Merc Files Sneaks Onto Android
They say imitation is the most sincere form of flattery, how much a game gets ripped off tends to be a good indicator of its success. This occasionally also brings us the opportunity to experience game styles that would otherwise be unavailable. One such title, Riddick: The Merc Files has infiltrated its way onto Android after receiving a lackluster reception on iOS. Created by mobile studio Gaming Corps, Riddick: The Merc Files is an interesting stealth action game very much like Metal Gear Solid that loosely ties into the events of Riddick’s latest feature film.
As the unstoppable and universally feared criminal Riddick, players will have to escape from a variety of deadly situations by slinking around the shadows and taking out enemies one by one. Similar to Solid Snake, Riddick prefers to outwit his opponent as opposed to outright overpowering them. This leads to tons of stealth kills, environmental tricks, and the occasional firefight.

- New content released regularly
- Upload your gameplay video in-game and share it with your friends
- Optimized controls- developed specifically for the mobile format
Although Riddick: The Merc Files sports nice visuals and follows in a legendary series footsteps, its largely uninspired implementation leaves alot to be desired. It’s available now for about $3.50 on Google Play.
