Description: Ol’ Dick Wilde here has been in pest control his whole cotton-pickin life. He’s come up with a bunch a custom weapons to help ordinary folk out with all sorts a’ nasty crittersl! If you got a problem with hungry piranhas, angry ‘gators, or even a shark or two – Dick’s the guy to call!

Review: Dick Wilde is a Hillbilly style cartoon shooter that sees you clearing one of 3 worlds out of gators, sharks, piranha and even the odd mutant sea life. The good news is you have a nice variety of weapons to do just that. From Grenade Launchers to Electric Bows and Nail Guns. There really is a great little collection and each gun has its own merits and style.

Played with the touch controllers it is all pretty easy to get used to with little more interaction needed than aiming and shooting. Be warned this is a challenging game and even on the easiest of levels things soon get out of hand and you will find yourself shooting at anything that moves. There is also a multiplayer mode that allows for a party style of gameplay, passing it between friends which do give the game some much-needed longevity.

Looking for a fun shooter? This is what you need. With a great variety of weapons, fun cartoon style of graphics and some really challenging levels and multiplayer modes this is a fantastic shooter. While I do think it’s worth the money I will suggest that you don’t buy it jut for the single-player mode, it’s multiplayer that really gives this game more length and depth, while not online it does let you pass the headset around making it the perfect party game. While some might moan at yet another VR shooter getting released, it is nice to see a new style of it. Dick Wilde won’t make you wild with excitement and dare I say it is best to grab it in a sale, but it will show you some fun for a while at least.
