Mini Militia: a multiplayer 2D shooter
Simple controls and a variety of scenes
The game presents you with a virtual joystick to control your character on the left side of the screen and another virtual joystick on the right side to aim your weapon. Your weapon shoots automatically, so you only have to concentrate on aiming. The gameplay takes place in a variety of scenes, with each having plenty of space to move around in. There are twenty different scenes, though the art style can get a little repetitive after a while. You must progress through the scenes in order to unlock more.
While the gameplay can be a little frantic at times, Mini Militia is suitable for casual gamers with its easy-to-use control system and approachable art style. It should be noted that many users have complained of other users cheating by hacking, something that the game seems to do a poor job of preventing. On a similar note, the game’s servers—which are required to play as this is a multiplayer-only game—are prone to connectivity issues, causing users to sometimes be unable to play the game.
The technical problems the game struggles—such as connectivity issues—can make it frustrating at times, but an enjoyable experience once you get past those hurdles.
Should you download it?
There are similar games, such as PUBG Mobile and Brawlhalla, but in terms of style, Mini Militia offers a quite different take on the genre thanks to its 2D gameplay and cartoon aesthetic. If this appeals to you, it is certainly worth downloading.
