Battle Royale has been the trending genre for over a year. Many developers have tried to jump onboard and earn additional income by adding this mode to their games or releasing standalone BR titles. Most of those games resembled each other and it was hard to find something innovative. It seems that Digital Confectioners might be on the track of something great with Last Tide.
100 People, 1 Survivor – Underwater
Last Tide is a Battle Royale, which means the same old concept – 100 people in the same area and the last man standing wins. Although the premise is the same, everything else is different in Last Tide. Unlike islands, jungles, or other land locations, this game is sending you into the ocean! You will have to do what it takes to survive underwater, which adds a whole new survival element to the mix. Aside from the other opponents, sharks will also be out to get you and that implies you will be playing in a very dangerous environment.
It is a shame that Last Tide is still in early access and hasn’t attracted that much attention yet. As a result, we failed to find more than 40-50 fellow competitors for an underwater adventure. Although that is far less than 100, it was still amazing to play the game. The underwater world features several deadly shark species which will force you to constantly move in an effort to save yourself from their sharp teeth.
Take This Chumnade, You Bastard!
Despite the fact that it is still in development, there are plenty of great weapons available in Last Tide. An extremely useful firearm is the “chumnade” which is nothing else than a meat grenade. If you shoot this toward your opponent, the sharks will immediately head towards them. The movement underwater is something that will also take some getting used to, but it seems that the laws of physics were properly implemented into the game.
When it comes to graphics, the game looks great. The underwater ocean environment is incredibly detailed and the sharks look very scary. What is even more important, the gameplay is addictive and the matches are tense. You can also experiment by playing solo or in teams or if you have enough confidence, solo against the teams. Last Tide features leaderboards and your goal is to climb as high as possible. An obvious downside is that the game obviously lacks more content and players, but we are hoping that will take a turn for the better once we get our hands on the full release.
