I know I hark on about the old games a lot. Maybe it’s because I’m getting a bit long in the tooth myself, maybe it’s because, back then, games were just that little bit more playable. This next offering from ID@Xbox appeals to me greatly. Inspired by Bomberman, Gauntlet and no doubt many others from that era, Knight Squad from Chainsawsome Games looks great fun.
Play with your friends in this top-down battler. Pick up weapons on the map to annihilate your enemies, even a laser gun. Grab power-ups too, why not speed yourself up or blow up all of your opponents? It’s not just as simple as blowing up your friends. You can play in various other game modes, as free-for-all and 4v4. These modes are listed as Grail, Capture the Flag, Soccer, Gladiator, Last Man Standing and Team Deathmatch, all set in Bomberman-style levels with various power-ups and hazards. It really does look great fun.
