“Overall, the game looks great for what it is: a quick, fun and fast game that works towards tangible goals and allows players to invest as much time in it as they want to. Also, while the skill cap is not the highest compared with a game like chess, I do like that it provides some strategic considerations into play with different materials, building blocks for the fortresses, different weapons, and the different races. It all just adds to the formula.
It’s also a great entry point for casual and core players unfamiliar with the Play-To-Earn ecosystems, as you can choose to opt in on the system or keep playing as though it was a more traditional live-service game. As an entry point, it’s pretty good.”
Inspired in cult classics like Angry Birds and Worms, Angrymals is all about utilizing weapons and hazardous objects to defeat the opponent.
The player must drag and release with their finger on the screen to create an arc, mark the speed, and height of the character’s chosen weapon. Releasing it will send the projectile flying. Savvy players will note that the faster the projectile hits, the more damage it can cause.
The more damage the player does to the opponent’s fortress, the more anger is collected. With enough anger, players can unleash powerful abilities unique to each character race.
Angrymals has 10 different races, each with different health values and an unique special move.
These races are:
Additionally, the fortress can be assembled and customized to the players preferences in a complex design. There is a maximum quantity of points that can be used to build the fortress. Blocks differ in that they are composed of different materials, and have different weights. Thus, they have different value points. This results in balanced matches, where both players have comparable fortresses to avoid disadvantages.
Multiple game modes are available, as seen in the Arena:
Quick Brawl: this mode is designed to play fast and fun games. It randomly selects the race and fortress selections for both players. There’s a damage bonus for weapons, and player abilities charge quickly.
Skirmish: this mode allows each player to choose their own fortress, weapons and race. Players can only use tiny sized fortresses in this mode. Abilities charge quickly, and there’s a damage bonus to weapons.
Battle: defined as the most balanced of the game modes, it allows for the use of medium sized fortresses.
Warfare: it is advertised as the longer lasting gameplay, and more strategically rewarding (both in satisfaction, experience, and coins). It allows for large fortresses. These matches take longer and bonuses to weapon damage and ability charging rates do not exist.
The Ranked ladder offers players an additional challenge. It designates players against each other for more rewards at the end of the season.
