Gumslinger is a physics-based dueling game for iOS and Android from the makers of Rest in Pieces
Arriving on mobile 23rd April
Itatake, the folks behind the creepy runner Rest in Pieces, has announced that their next game will be available April 23 for both iOS and Android. It will be called Gumslinger and will see players take place in a series of duels as gummy cowboys or other wobbly gun-toting candies shaped like Witches or the Grim Reaper.
The main focus of the game will be on these duels. You'll select your character, your weapon and then take part in 64 player tournaments in a bid to reach the top. It won't be real-time multiplayer though, instead, you'll be battling against characters players have created and sent out for duels.
The duels themselves look very fun, largely due to the physics the game has opted to use that they refer to as 'soft-body'. Seeing as every character is made of gummy sweets each successful shot will send them flying in a variety of hilarious ways. If you manage to shoot them first, the impact will most likely cause your opponent's shot to sail harmlessly over your head or it could help a poorly aimed shot find its target.
Characters don't necessarily die in one hit either, so you will need to land multiple shots on these unsteady characters. There are a host of different stages to battle on to that will require you to adapt your strategy somewhat. Sometimes your opponent might be placed higher for instance, whilst another duel might see several objects blocking your shots such as tin cans that need to be cleared first.
There are a bunch of skill shot missions you can complete to hone your craft at gummy dueling before diving into the tournaments themselves. By doing them you might also unlock more characters and weapons too. You can check out some gameplay in the videos above.Enjoy action games? Here are 25 of the best available for Android
