Nun Attack Review

Nun Attack Review

Nov 9, 2012

How often are there games where nuns are the main character, let alone where they are shooting everything in sight? Nun Attack is that game. The demo video below shows a pretty good representation of what the game is like. It all starts with one nun with two handguns. She’s kicking butt against evil from a different realm. The skeletons come out of a portal and try to attack the world, but this killer nun will have none of it.

As mentioned in the start of the game there’s one nun to control. She has two handguns and a special ability. As more nuns get unlocked, there’s the option to choose a combination of a couple nuns to attack the level. All of the nuns that are later unlocked as the levels progress also have special abilities. If they weren’t nuns I would call them superpowers but will call the special abilities. For example one of them turns the non-invisible the other has a, for lack of a better term, holographic image of herself to fool the skeletons.

The controls are pretty simple, they consist of tapping and dragging the nun were she needs to be. Whether she is attacking something or simply moving around the screen this is how it’s done. The same controls are used on the map screen for the battle screen. also on the screen, there are different options to activate the special powers or miracles. What’s different about the map screen here is the nuns can actually die on the map screen. There are different portals that will show up the need to be attacked on the map screen itself.

All of the nuns weapons and abilities can be upgraded. The upgrades are able to be purchased using the gold acquired when evil beings are killed. To attack the your characters, drag him nun to area close to the evildoer. To be more accurate and possibly attack from a farther distance, drag the displayed X directly on top of the monster.
