Mixing fun and easy to enjoy gameplay with simple level designs, little replay value after a certain point and so many ads. Hit Master 3D is every bit the free to play game you would expect from the mobile market. However, it makes up for most of its flaws by being fun and addictive up to around about level 30.
Which does give you a decent chunk of time to enjoy what is on offer here. Provided you can suffer through an alarming amount of ad-spam.
Win? Ad. Lose? Ad. Die? Ad. Revive? Ad. Don’t Revive? Ad. So many ads, making ‘airplane mode’ the only way to play this for any length of time. Normally, we don’t advocate for that because you really shouldn’t have to do that to play a game but, in this circumstance, it’s the only way to get any enjoyment out of this.
Gameplay is on rails as your character jumps from platform to platform automatically. From the first-person view, your only task is to take down the enemies on each platform using your handy supply of knives. Your infinite supply of knives that can be thrown simply by tapping the screen. Aim for the head, something that is surprisingly easy to do, and you’ll take most enemies down in one.
Occasionally bigger brutes will stand in your way and need a few more knife hits to take down but it never becomes difficult. This is simply because the supply of knives never runs out, they can be thrown at fast speeds and one hit on any part of the body has them falling down ‘ragdoll’ style. Even if you do let them approach, they’re so slow that dying is the hardest thing about the game. You’re more likely to hit the odd hostage that crops up here and there.
The thing is, it’s very free flowing and the speed of the game makes for an intuitive experience. At first, the jumping from platform to platform and throwing knives to take down villains is a lot of fun. However, that’s all there is to the game and it rarely ramps up the difficulty. After a certain point too, it begins to repeat and the feeling that you’ve seen everything the game has to offer is too strong to ignore.
That’s going to be the point where most stop playing and delete the game.
