Jaw Dropping Stealth Action Game République Sneaks Onto Amazon
One of the most groundbreaking new stealth games in recent memory has finally made its way onto Android, albeit not in the form you may have wanted. République is a stunning new stealth based title created by veterans of Metal Gear Solid that raises the bar for what a console quality game on mobile can be. Developed by Camouflaj, République features amazing graphics, intuitive yet intense stealth gameplay, and a genuinely intriguing narrative that will keep you glued to your screen. Having already seen a release on iOS République has already received an enormous amount of praise for its console grade presentation and the same is true of its Android release.
There’s only one catch though as you may have noticed from this article’s title; République is currently only available on the Kindle Fire HDX tablets and Kindle Fire phone thanks to a partnership with Amazon. This doesn’t seem to be a case of forced exclusivity however as it seems Amazon had a direct hand in bringing the game over to its Android based devices which in turn should also help speed up its general release.
As if its gameplay and graphics weren’t impressive enough, Metal Gear Solid fans will definitely swoon with envy when they learn that in addition to being programmed by Metal Gear vets République also features the voice talents of Solid Snake himself, David Hayter. Players take control of a massive survelliance system as they help a young girl trapped in a secluded totalitarian state escape without being seen. The only way players have to interact with the game is to hack into the various security apparatus in order to distract her adversaries and aid her escape.
If you happen to have a Kindle Fire HDX, you can pick up République now on the Amazon Appstore for $4.99 with iap’s for additional content. As for the rest of us, hopefully we see République come to the Google Play store sooner rather than later.
