Sidescrolling Shooter Rogue Buddies Charges Onto Android
The developers behind the Stick Squad series of shooters are back with a zany new platformer in the vein of games like Broforce called Rogue Buddies. This action packed sidescrolling shoot ’em up from indie developer Brutal Studio is a fast paced run and gun marathon where players are tasked with blasting their way through hordes of cartoony enemy soldiers as they attempt to rescue their captured brothers in arms. Each squad member has their own unique abilities that players can switch to on the fly which allows for more creativity when approaching large groups of enemies.
Players move their cadre of commandos through each level using a virtual control pad scheme that includes the usual suspects like double jumping, primary attacks, and secondary attacks. The different buddies all have their own specialized play styles that can be upgraded for enhanced lethality by collecting the wads of cash strewn about each level. Certain levels have pilotable vehicles players can commandeer like a motorcycle that lets them run over foes or a helicopter for when raining destruction from above is more appropriate. Fans of games like Metal Slug and Broforce will want to take a gander at Rogue Buddies.
Rogue Buddies is free to download on Google Play.
