Retro Style Survival Shooter Blunko Hops Onto Android
An old school style shooter done up in the tradition of classic retro platformers by the name of Blunko has arrived on Android. This charming 2D run and gun throwback from indie developer WarticWare is a straightforward yet eminently challenging survival shoot ’em up where players do battle with hordes of cuddly monsters that look like they came straight out of a NES game. It’s up to players to hold out against the pixel mob for as long as possible using their wits and a whole lot of butt stomping.
Players control the title character using virtual gamepad controls as they run about a series of differently themed static arenas. They’ll need to learn when to use Blunko’s two available attacks depending on which type of enemy they’re attacking as a butt stomp isn’t a good idea when your opponent has a spiky head. There’s also an additional one-hit hard mode for pros and a list of achievements to conquer. Fans of old school style arcade games will likely get a kick out of Blunko.
Blunko is available for a dollar on Android and PC.
