Battle For Life Editor's Review

Battle For Life is a freeware strategy game with a war type theme, where the player with teammates, uses tactics has to destroy the enemy team in an attempt to capture their base located on the other side of the ‘field’.

The game is graphically very basic and is a light, so it should run smoothly on most machines. When loading up, the main menu will trigger a soviet union second world war song ‘the sacred war’, which can get really annoying if you leave the game running on the main menu, after navigating through the menus, sometimes you’ll also find songs overlapping, something which can also cause annoyance to the player. Furthermore, the variations of ‘final countdown’ are painful to my ears, however I can find some amusement in them. There is no tutorial on how to play the game, although there is an explanation of the game found in the ‘about’ section, but this is vague and gives the player no real sense of direction in terms of how to win each level.

Moving on to the game play itself, the general movement of your soldier is easy to master and you’ll find yourself killing swarms of enemies in no time. The battle scene varies slightly from level to level, but generally consists of a battle hardened wasteland with wreckage occasionally scattered around the map. There are planes that fly overhead that frequently drops bombs on the wasteland which leaves holes in the map which can get frustrating when trying to reach the enemy base as only the helicopter can get past these obstacles. Although, I think the game is successful as a strategy game as you are supplied with a set amount of armoured vehicles that you have to carefully manage in order to defeat the opposing teams vehicles, as these are what can really win you the level if such resources are carefully managed and utilised at the right points in the game. However, to win you must get all of your teammates, including you in to the enemy base territory which is marked by a red circle around their spawn point, this can prove to be very difficult as the opposing team are constantly spawning in the area as you are trying to amass your troops there. Therefore you will find yourself trying to force your soldiers to simultaneously enter the zone together, which is virtually impossible considering you actually have no control over the movement of your team even if you do perfectly manage the resources supplied at the start of the game.

Another issue that I found with the game is that it is incredibly ‘glitchy’, you or your teammates can be easily spawn trapped in the obstacles around the spawn area, this is a major flaw in the game engine as you have no option to self destruct and you’ll have to wait for enemies to come and kill you before you can carry on with the game. This is of particular occurrence during levels with a lot of wreckage and obstacles around the spawn area, furthermore you can’t actually win the game if you or any of your teammates are trapped, because all soldiers have to be in the enemy spawn area in order to proceed to the next level.

Overall, I think this game is very poorly thought out and gives players no indication of how to win the game or the controls involved. I got tired of this game after 20 minutes of trying to win the first level, let alone the next 12. I would not recommend to anyone and I would rate it 1/5 stars.
