New Arcade Zombie Shooter The Night Shift Shambles Onto Mobile
It’s been a little while since we first previewed the unique light based shooter Don’t Forget To Reload back in 2015 but this gory pixel art shoot ’em up has finally made its way to mobile devices and gotten a new name in the process called The Night Shift. The brainchild of indie developer Brackish Games, The Night Shift is a simple but highly engaging arcade shooter that tasks players with surviving hordes of the undead by blasting them away with well placed shotgun shots. Unfortunately for the game’s protagonist they chose a dimly lit storage closet to make their last stand against the walking dead which means the only way they’ll be able to see any oncoming zombies is by using their muzzle flash to light up their foes.
This means players will need to be tactical in how they pick their targets since the room becomes pitch black when reloading which can create a window for any speedy zombies to get the drop on them. As they rack up their kill count players can unlock helpful upgrades to aid them in their plight such as exploding barrels and enhanced reloading times. If you’re a fan of intense arcade shooters be sure to take a look at The Night Shift.
The Night Shift is available for $.99 on Android and iOS.
