Let Them Come (iOS)
SynopsisMow down waves of alien scum in this pixel style survival mode shooter. You are mercenary gun for hire, Rock Guner, sent on a mission by Infini Corp to take down the alien hordes on a spaceship. As wave after wave of progressively harder enemies ascend on you, will you be able to react fast enough, have the right fire power and the sheer grit and determination it will take to survive?
As far as corridor shooters go, Let Them Come is a pretty stylish one. It also has a ton of variety scattered throughout it to try and keep things fresh. The only unfortunate thing though is that Let Them Come’s gameplay is pretty shallow, and all of the style and variety in the world can’t really compensate for that.
Visually, Let Them Come has an awesome 16-bit pixel art style aesthetic that falls in line with many other games. As someone who grew up in the '90s, I definitely appreciate these visuals. Despite the pixelated appearance, I found everything to fairly detailed, including the dark and gloomy atmosphere of the barren spaceship, as well as the various hostile aliens that can explode upon death.
Let Them Come might not have the quick-reaction crunch of other space shooters, but there's still a lot to like in its dingy halls and skittering terrors. It's fun, but it definitely takes a while to really get going. But as last-stand simulators go, it's pretty damn impressive. Right down to the gurning face of the main character as the bullets blast out. There's hectic fun to be had here. But, unsurprisingly for a last-gasp defence of humanity, it does get a little repetitive after a while.
