Wildcat Gun Machine is a basic shoot ’em-up game by Daedalic, with a beautiful 2D design and cute kitties However, the appearances may be misleading as the game is inundated with monsters and isn’t so casual as it appears on first sight.

Instead of a plot Wildcat Gun Machine, the introductions include a stunning battle maiden sporting an eye patch on her left eye as well as the maze of corridors, rooms that are a high-tech complex with disgusting creatures and the need to eliminate them, concording with the potential.
The game has a beautifully drawn image that features a chibi hero and adversaries that are reminiscent of the cybernetic monsters in Quake Biorobots that have implants, mechanized guns, modified insects, and machines controlled by demons.
The locations in the game are represented through a complicated system of rooms and corridors that enemies, explosives, and traps lock you. Certain areas are not accessible without having a pass. they are indicated on the map with the color of the key that matches that of the keys.
White cats dance across the saved point. The more you savepoints there are, the more conditional lives you can enjoy, allowing you to revive near the body. If you cannot find cats, the cat is transported to the obelisk. If she dies, her progression (including the access key) will be saved; however, the enemies in the rooms will be revived, and you’ll need to scrub the entire area once more.
The player can carry a single regular and one particular weapon at any time, with limited ammunition. Conventional guns, such as the compact flamethrower, blaster, or vortex cannon, are offered in stores, and expendable weapons such as the ray rifle, machine gun, and shotgun are available within the level.
Since we’re facing an old-fashioned bullet hell flamethrowers and energy weapons, as well as various cannons, and other enemy weapons, shoot balls of various calibers or directed beams. The difference lies in the fire speed, the power of hitting, and the projectile’s diameter.
After defeating the initial, difficult boss, the player is given a jerk and throws a projectile (grenade as a default). The jerk is crucial if a tense wall of projectiles holds you down. Additionally, throwing lets, you do damage to the area.
There are approximately forty types of weapons available in the game, comprising regular cannons, expendable cannons, various types of explosives, and ultimatum robots. When you advance through levels, your arsenal will be upgraded with more and more weapons to destroy the demonic creatures.
The intensity of the game is rapidly increasing. However, the complexity of the bosses and rooms can be a bit unpredictable. Some bosses are quickly passed through with eyes closed, while in the others, you’ll repeatedly be dying again until it’s easy to pass again.
I would not recommend Wildcat Gun Machine to veterans of the genre. It’s pretty average. For those who aren’t savvy, you should play it because it’s simpler than the majority of analog games, doesn’t burden your brain with unnecessary information, and is stylish. It’s the perfect thing to do for a night or two.
