Facewound - Free PC Game Review

Facewound - Free PC Game Review - Free PC Gamers - Free PC GamesFacewound is a 2D side scrolling shoot’em up that should retail for about $15, but Facepunch Studios decided to stop production and release it for free. Actually, the game is not complete, and is stated that the released version should be handled with care – ‘unfinished, unpolished and should be treated with the same attitude you’d treat a leaked alpha with.’

With that out of the way, it’s time to say that Facewound is a brilliant piece of old school shooter action. It deftly merges the control scheme we know and love from Abuse (keyboard for movement and mouse for aiming) with some furious zombie shooting and visual effects aplenty. Unfinished? Yes, things like stair climbing animation are missing. Unpolished? Maybe, it could use some play testing to make sure the difficulty level and weapons access is balanced. Furious and fun? Absolutely!

Our hero is facing a zombie invasion and needs to cross the levels by shooting everything in sight and jumping a lot. You can perform some fabulous headshots but sometimes the zombies keep coming even without their heads. Dead enemies drop some green plutonium bars that must be collected to increase a meter and earn credits to purchase better weapons. It will take some time to experience the entire arsenal, ranging from simple handguns to machine guns, bows, grenades, laser weapons and flamethrowers. The visual effects that accompany the more powerful weapons are something to see, from the burning scenery (and zombies) to the glowing edges of buildings. Explosions are loud and the whole game is fast and frantic.

The weapon handling feels great (despite some occasional bugs, with a couple of them separated from your hands) and the bullet impact sounds perfect, with some delicious ‘crunch’ effects. Music is hard-hitting and powerful.

Facewound is a blast. It may be dubbed unfinished by its authors but it’s extremely playable as it is and the bugs aren’t that noticeable. Absolutely recommended.
