Description: Exterminator is back with a new spin-off title. Fight the mice in a new way, your style. Lights, camera, action! Get up on stage, load your weapon, and fire! They’re taking over the studio, so fight to take it back! See you on live on air! Be the contestant and the star of the show. Immerse yourself in Japanese TV and relieve stress by shooting props at the deceptively adorable mice in this family-friendly shoot-em-up arcade experience. Load up with your weapon of choice: Pen, Pineapple, Apple, and Orange. Each ammo type works a bit differently so find one that suits your playstyle. After loading up, just shoot! Don’t forget to reload. Be careful though…some might explode. The studio is a dangerous place. The set might come apart if you are reckless. There are various obstacles that can get in your way. Better watch out!
Review: While most people would not have heard of it, ‘Exterminator: Escape!’ is in fact the sequel to Exterminator which was a different type of game, but with the same cartoon gameshow style graphics. But this is no wack-a-amole game, this one is a static shooter which sees you trying to exterminate the naughty mice with fruit guns! It’s just as crazy as the original game and has a loose “gameshow” theme to it. It’s crazy, it’s loud, it’s fun and I did really enjoy playing it and i am sure you could do a score challenge with friends to try and eke out even more value for money from it. I do feel £4.79 might be asking a bit much for this, but even at half that price, I would give this a look. Its nothing special, but it will give you a good hours worth of fun.
