New Micro FPS is the most exciting game of 2022
Are you feeling a little tired of all the big games this year or all the seemingly never-ending online service games? Looking for something weird, fun, and only lasts about an hour? Then don’t read any more (Editor’s Note: Don’t do that.) and play the newly released game chop goblinone of the coolest little gems of the year on Steam.
Released last week, chop goblin is a fast-paced and simple shooter with vintage-inspired visuals and catchy music. This is the latest game from David Szymanski, the solo creator behind the game Shooting game is also great and no less classic sunset. But don’t like sunset—it’s a big game with all kinds of guns, levels and ways to move around the world-chop goblin is a smaller and more focused game, with only a handful of weapons, five levels and no way to jump or crouch. If that makes the game sound a little too simple, it is, but in a good way, like how a great restaurant can have only six items on the menu and complete all of them. that dish was perfect.
Like many classic shooters, chop goblin there’s more to the carnage setting than a proper story. Your protagonist finds an old box inside the museum, opens it and drops the title box, obsessed with cheese. chop goblin. Who are they? They are goblins that love to cut and slash. Some of them like to dress up like old ladies and others get really big and throw meat knives at you. Oh, and they’ve got hold of a time manipulation pill and will take over the world and all the time unless you can stop them with a knife, a locked pistol, and a magic wand from Greece . Guys, that’s a weird thing, okay?
chop goblin It might be weird, but it’s also a very well-made shooter that features tight controls, precise gunplay, and eye-popping combat. Enemies explode and explode when they’re killed, and boxes are fun to break, making it hard to run around every level looking for secrets by smashing everything in sight. It’s the kind of game that just feels good to play. Just run around and explore is a blast. A lot of games can learn a thing or two from chop goblin!
This tiny shooter also has style that exudes from its small holes. (Editor’s Note: What…?) It has a VHS-like filter to the action that gives everything a slightly stale and creepy feel, like you’re watching a tape someone found under some old box at the closed video store a few blocks away. street. It also sports some very good music. My wife was in the room listening to me play games and commented that “This game has some damn great music.” And she is right. There isn’t really anything else to add beyond that. Glad I married her.
Really, the only problem I have with chop goblin is at the end of the game I want more Chop goblin. But that’s a big deal to have. I would rather end your game expecting a few more levels than end your game because it’s over eventually. Sure, some might ask: Is a game that only takes about an hour to complete worth $5? I can’t answer that for you. But I can say that after I defeat chop goblin I enabled it and replayed the first two levels. And in the process, I found a secret that I missed. And I hope I’ll revisit this game when I want to relax and not get bogged down in some new 300 hour epic RPG or whatever. And to me, that’s worth $5, that’s easy.
