10Ton Ltd has a brand new title for Android Gamers looking for a bit less story and a lot more action, called JYDGE, which takes on a similar vein to the legendary top-down shooters of old. Of course, the graphics are completely modern, as is the upgrades system. However, the joy of blasting away baddies JYDGE, the game's protagonist, is just about as pure as an experience can get. Players will effectively take on the role of JYDGE, an augmented cybernetic entity tasked with cleaning up Edenbyrg. The neon-lit megacity has fallen into a dystopian stage and players will need to take on increasingly difficult bad guys, rescue hostages, and more.
Gameplay, as mentioned above, takes place in a top-down view with an invisible dual-stick aiming and movement setup. There are a ton of different districts that need saving and varying circumstances that will require different approaches. However, there are also a lot of ways to augment JYDGE to make the challenges more feasible. For starters, everything from cybernetics, secondary items, weapons, and companions is customizable. The game's developers claim there are over a billion different combinations of those to try out, so players are getting their money's worth. The primary weapon is a "Gavel rifle" which can be tweaked with various mods, such as "citizen-safe" ammunition, special effects such as rockets, lasers, or electricity, and other upgrades. The player character is no less customizable, with various augmentations available to suit various play styles. Perhaps best of all, everything is available via in-game currency with no ads or in-app purchases. The atmosphere set by the varying environments and musical scores is top-notch.
However, the ad-free experience does come at a cost for all of that. Ordinarily, JYDGE is priced at just short of $10 but, as of this writing, there are still 6 days remaining to get the app at a reduced cost of just under $6. So anybody interested in checking this out should go ahead and click the Google Play Store link below. There's not a whole lot to dislike about this title for fans of the genre, so it's definitely worth a look.
