Ancient Amuletor (PSVR)
Intro: Ancient Amuletor is an action tower defence game that throws you into the ancient world to battle magical creatures, monsters and other legendary foes in single-player and cooperative multiplayer for up to three players.
Review: With so many tower defence games available it can be hard to stand out from the crowd. But that is exactly what this game does. It’s a motion controller shooter with guns and bows, but yet also a tower defence game combined. In this game, there are no towers to build and strategically place, because you are the tower and you will be warping all over the playing area taking our wave after wave of oncoming enemies that can appear from just about anywhere which does help to make the game more exciting than it otherwise would be. Then you just need to defend your crystal from damage with your every last breath of fight.
You get to select one of four different heroes to play with: The gun shooter, The Archer, The Mage and the Puppeteer. Each one has their own sort of weapons and each one is useful in their own way. The good news is you can swap these heros in-game which means you will need to strategise which one is best at which times. Played using the Move Controllers it feels more responsive than you would think, but I did just find myself playing with the gun-slinger most the time.
Verdict: I found Ancient Amuletor to be a really great game and loads of fun to play. From the fairly responsive gameplay to the co-op mode, there is quite a lot packed into this game. Sadly features do not maketh the game and in terms of content, this game is incredibly short for the asking price. In fact, it isn’t much longer than the free demo! But with some new areas, weapons and gameplay modes this could easily be a must buy game. Just not for now (not for its current price), but well worth a download of the free demo.
