Kid Friendly Arcade Shooter Oh No! Turret Alert Lands On Android
Traditionally kid friendly games have been invariably associated with a loss of fun factor due to their tendency to focus on edu-tainment style gameplay so it’s always nice when a cool new game appears on the scene that the entire family can legitimately enjoy. The latest example of this being developer Nelvana Digital’s great new arcade shooter Oh No! It’s An Alien Invasion Turret Alert, or just Turret Alert for short, a vibrant callback to oldschool cabinets like Time Crisis and House Of The Dead. Based on an outlandish children’s show called Oh No! It’s An Alien Invasion, Turret Alert casts players as one of three butt kicking kids as they defend the earth from some pesky aliens using an arsenal of nonviolent weapons.
The action is simple yet satisfying, as all players must do is survive wave after wave of aliens by tapping on them to shoot or by swiping between enemies to perform screen clearing combo shots. Taking out enemy “brainlings” will earn players additional loot that can be used to unlock more powerful weapons and new characters to play as. The loot is even dropped at a reasonable rate as this is thankfully a one time purchase app that doesn’t have any gaming mucking iaps to worry about.
If you’re in the mood for a simple yet enjoyable arcade shooter that’s not plagued with iap’s, Oh No! Turret Alert is definitely worth a look. You can pick it up now for $1.99 on Google Play.
