Call of Duty and Battlefield have got nothing on this game! Well, maybe not, but for 80 Microsoft Points it’s actually pretty fun.
Avatar Deathmatch is an Xbox Live Indie Game developed by Lighthouse Games Studio that’s predominantly a multiplayer Nerf shooter between you and three other players (max). It’s got a real bright Simpsons-esque feel about it and if you’re used to online FPS games, the controls are pretty easy to grasp. It doesn’t need skill to play either, it’s merely a point and shoot game that’s just a bit of fun. Best of all, it’s all done with your own Xbox Avatar!
You begin the game with a simple single shot pistol with unlimited ammo (pictured above), but dotted around the map are other guns that you can pick up and use such as an uzi, a shotgun and a crossbow. Each of the weapon pick-ups have limited ammo so use wisely or head to the nearest ammo pick-up available in various places on the map. Some other cool bonuses you can find on the play zone is a god mode pick up where you cannot be shot, a speed bonus that gives you super speed and a health pick up (located by the hospital door).
Each round lasts about 10 minutes and each “kill” counts as a point, the winner of the game is the player with the most points.
I bought this game because I thought it would be funny to play, but I actually quite enjoyed it & for 80MSPoints it’s a bargain!
