Hills of Glory WWII 

 

Bulkypix is showing that a publisher on the iPhone/iPod Touch can be extremely successful. Hills of Glory WWII is a tower defense game like no other. Well that is not entirely true. Babel Rising is similar. The player has a bunker, and a lot of enemy soldiers are coming their way. They have to shoot the enemies as they come towards the bunker. What makes Hills of Glory WWII so interesting is you can upgrade your weapons, and bring in different troops to assist with this endeavor.

The visuals contained within Hills of Glory WWII is going to raise eyebrows in the family friendly realm. The enemy soldiers get shot, burned, blown up, and more. There is some gore in this game. Shooting them once on lower levels will have some of their clothing fall off. When soldiers die certain ways there will be a cross that appears where they fell. I really liked that special effect.

You may not be able to smell the napalm in the morning with Hills of Glory WWII, but you can hear it burn. The music in Hills of Glory WWII is as majestic as some of the well known military movies. The gun shots sound realistic - at least to me. The characters do make sounds when they die, but it is not over done. I enjoyed the music because it is very energetic. It got me pumped up to protect my bunker.

The coolest thing about Hills of Glory WWII is earning money, and then deciding how to use it. I could use my money to upgrade my team, purchase new member, and purchase new levels. The price of Hills of Glory WWII is insanely low in my opinion. You will get your moneys worth out of Hills of Glory WWII. Family Friendly Gaming was provided a download code for this app.

The biggest knock against tower defense games is spending all this time on a level just to come up short, and to receive nothing from it. Hills of Glory WWII fixes this problem. If you lose a level you still earn money. This can be used to upgrade characters. All of the different characters, and upgrades adds some complexity to how this game can be played. I must admit I had some fun playing Hills of Glory WWII. Killing all those little guys got old, but seeing the new weapons, and characters was pretty cool.

I don't know if any war based video game can ever get a passing score in the family friendly factor. I do not see anything in Hills of Glory WWII that make it safe for families. I learned to protect my guys by getting the other ones first. I also learned to use every single weapon in my arsenal to clear the battle field. In the real world soldiers have families, and many come back from war wounded. My heart goes out to them.
