Normally I can not stand shooters. Especially space shooters. The
monotony of blowing everything away with a barrage of laser fire
puts me to sleep. The winter hibernation kind of sleep. I saw something
in Nano Assault. I saw something that intrigued me. Which is why we have
been covering it. What did I see? Patience my friends.
The first thing I saw in Nano Assault was, viruses are what we fight. Yes our little vehicle is down at the microscopic size. We shoot viruses so we can purify the cells. Or goal is to stop the spread of a deadly virus. I started feeling healthier after playing Nano Assault for a few hours. That may sound corny, but it is true.
The 3D effects in Nano Assault are awe inspiring. I am shocked at how good this game looks. The 3D is absolutely amazing. I would say that Nano Assault has the best 3D effects I have seen on the Nintendo 3DS to date. The scaling and rotation in this hand held title is flawless. The down side to Nano Assault is we are blowing away things most of the game. I did enjoy collecting the DNA pieces in certain levels.
The music in Nano Assault is ambient. It helps set the tone for this Nintendo 3DS game. The quality of this music is exceptional. One of the coolest aspects of Nano Assault is being able to purchase the music and listen to it. Coins collected in the game are transferred to coins that can be spent on purchasing the songs.
Songs are not the only thing we can purchase in Nano Assault. There is also a Nanopedia to learn about the viruses in Nano Assault. Nano Assault includes a Story Mode, Arcade Mode, Boss Rush Mode, Nano Shop, Nanopedia, Juke Box, and Explorer levels. It takes some time to go through all of that.
The quality of Nano Assault is what astounds me the most. This title is put together extremely well. Levels are easy at first, but ramp up at a quick pace. I enjoyed playing Nano Assault. The thing parents will want to be aware of is Nano Assault is a shooting game. The player shooters in different directions and at different spreads depending on what buttons they press. They also have a special weapon which has its own gauge.
Nano Assault will keep you on your toes. I spent most of the time with at least one firing button pressed down at all times. I only let go to swap to another one. Viruses explode when their life bar is depleted. Some of them will shake the entire screen.
