The future in videogames is always shiny and new, as much as it is exciting and deadly. Sounds like a perfect time for alien invasions and death-defying Reality Shows, wouldn’t you agree? Such is the foundation of Madfinger’s mobile first-person shooter Shadowgun: Legends.
Behind its looks of futuristic shooter lies a game that harkens back to the old days, to a time when id Software was on top of its game. Doom is clearly one of the inspirations for Shadowgun: Legends fast-paced gameplay, but the art style is unquestionably inspired by Bungie’s Halo and Destiny games. However, this would be underestimating Madfinger Games’ hard work and experience in the genre, delivering a game that stands on its own merits and a fine example of the progress that mobile shooters have made in recent years.
