Description: Welcome back recruit! MOTHERGUNSHIP: FORGE is a frantic VR FPS roguelite where players craft powerful hand-held weapons and struggle to survive — er defeat — the MOTHERGUNSHIP. Experience room scale movement*, dodging, limbo-ing and even relishing the satisfaction of literally punching through clouds of bullets, all while perfecting your weapon masterpiece. Survive the MOTHERGUNSHIP’s metal minions and earn gun parts to add to your weapon, easily picking them up and snapping them into place in VR. You’ll choose from a wild array of distinct gun parts and upgrades like chainguns, railguns, and pizza launchers (yes, explosive pizzas) to forge hell-ish combinations. Design your weapon, then destroy the MOTHERGUNSHIP fleet as alien machines, explosive traps, metal pests, and deadly bosses do everything they can to blast you and your weapon back to square one.

Review: ‘MOTHERGUNSHIP: FORGE’ is a wave based shooter in which you will be shooting various killer robots with a gun that you pretty much make yourself with modular units. There are even a few boss battles to enjoy which was a highlight. While mostly the graphics are pretty good there really isn’t a lot of variety at all. The thing is the game is fun and a well made shooter that most people will enjoy. But ingenuity is dead here and it offers nothing over what every other wave shooter offers. Is that a bad thing? No probably not to most people, but when I am paying £15.49 for a game I like it to have a little more originality. There is no moving around here, you are locked into one position, but that also means the focus is on the shooting action which I did enjoy. Sure, there isn’t anything new here, but there is still plenty to sink your teeth into if you enjoy your shooters.
