Grab hold and download a copy of GUNS UP!, a military strategy tower defense and offense game in the Playstation 4.
Build the strongest and impenetrable base, and build your army to destroy your enemies.
Time your deployments at the right time and use your resources wisely in your conquest!
Stick your hands up and put your GUNS UP. We’re not sure how the saying goes, but GUNS UP certainly fits. This fun little game involves creating a well-defended base, as well as gathering an army to mount offensives against other players. Although the premise is undoubtedly a fun and interesting, it gets repetitive over time. You could compare it to a mobile tower defense game, but nevertheless, it’s a great way to kill time on the PS4. But is it worth spending your time on?
Guns Up has addicting gameplay mechanics, but once you get tired of them, you may not want to spend any more time playing it. Regardless, it could give you dozens of hours of gameplay, and the same amount of fun from an AAA title. There are two concepts in the game, which are attacking and defending. Under these two are numerous tactical elements, and you can go try out different ways to conquer your opponents’ bases. Moreover, you can unleash your inner architect or engineer to design your base in a way that enemy units will be unable to destroy and sack it.
The defending and base-building aspects require you to build structures like tall walls, turrets, and bunkers where defensive units can stop advancing enemies dead on their tracks. Furthermore, the ultimate goal of defending is to stop your enemies from destroying your headquarters. As for attacking, you will end up deploying countless waves of troops to crush your enemies’ bases. That being said, bear in mind that every base is different, so you will need to wisely pick the right troops to deploy, depending on the base and defensive structure lay out.
Successful attacks on your opponents earn you the game’s currency, which is called “munitions”. These are required to building your bases, specifically in tasks involving the purchase of upgrades and new structures. Soon thereafter, you will be drawn into a continuous spiral: attacking, defending, upgrading your base, and attacking again. There is a steep learning curve you need to get past beforehand, but everything will be cleared up during the tutorial stages.
Although the game offers replayability, thanks to your opponents’ bases being different, you’ll discover the designs don’t vary much. The most effective way to stop enemy attacks would be to bottleneck the invaders in a single path. However, keep in mind that you won’t be defending your base in real time, nor will an opponent defend his base at the same time you’re attacking. The opposing side is always AI-controlled.
Guns Up is decent, but what puts it down compared to other free-to-play games is its heavy reliance on microtransactions, which is the cardinal sin of managing games. The munition rewards you receive do not coincide with your progression. For example, when you reach a certain level, the base upgrades and items can cost tens of thousands, while every excursion into your opponents’ territories can yield a few thousand.
Overall, Guns Up! is a game worth spending time on, but due to its heavy reliance on microtransactions, you’ll find it hard to continue when you get to a higher level. Nevertheless, Guns Up! may be your cup of tea, especially if you liked Clash of Clans or Boom Beach. If you’re looking for a decent F2P tower defense-like title, this is something you would want to try out.
