Nun Attack: Run & Gun Review

Sep 30, 2013

When the second rendition of the Nun Attack series came out, Nun Attack: Run & Gun, I was really excited. I really liked the original version so I was curious how they were going to top it. Once I started play it, it is evident that they chose a different style of gameplay. With the popularity of games such as couple run and other somewhat side scrolling games, the kind of went this route. Nun Attack: Run & Gun has a lot of the same action and look of the original, but in a side scrolling set up.

nun-attack-run-and-gun-3The Holy warriors came back to fight another round of evil. Some the the Demon beings to be eliminated are werewolves, skeletons and other beings trying to kill the nuns and make the martyrs for the cause. Nun Attack: Run & Gun has many different nuns and weapons to add along the way. Different upgrades and powers make it easier to collect a lot of the coins needed to purchase upgrades and receive achievements.

As the game progresses, different nuns can be used. The different nuns have different abilities and/or weapons available to them just like in the original game. As you imagine, some of the nuns are more agile, some of them are better than with weapons and so on. Making the correct choice helps get you farther distances.

The music in the game is actually pretty cool. Kinda has a 70s feel to it. The graphics in the game are quite good. There cartoony yet really detailed, almost like a moving comic book. The controls are onscreen controls. There’s an up arrow for jump, down arrow for jumping down a level, slide button and a button used for shooting. That’s all there really is to. Overall, the controls are pretty easy to use in comparison to some other games. The controls are responsive and accurate as long as you keep them correctly.

I see this as a game I could play quite a bit because it goes on and on only to get harder and faster.
