Duel Your Friends In New Local Multiplayer Shooter Anycrate
A unique new duel based shoot ’em up that focuses on delivering competitive single device multiplayer dubbed Anycrate has arrived on Android devices. This well made retro style shooter from indie developer Kirill Losev combines elements of games like Super Crate Box with simplified death match mechanics where players do battle with either friends or the AI in tensely strategic gun battles. With a wide variety of fighters to choose from and power up grabbing heavy combat Anycrate does a great job of creating a fun multiplayer shoot ’em up that isn’t a hassle to play together on a single device.
After choosing a character and level players face off against each other by firing shots from either side of the screen and jumping out of the way when their opponent does the same. Crates will periodically rain from the sky and will grant upgrades to whichever player manages to destroy it first making them key to gaining an edge over one’s opponent. Should players wish to compete in a more friendly manner there is also an arcade co-op mode where they attempt to prevent trapezing thieves from stealing their gold. Shoot ’em up fans looking for a game they can share with their friends will have a blast with Anycrate.
Anycrate is free to download on Google Play. You can also check it out on PC at the link below.
