CATS: Crash Arena Turbo Stars review
CATS: Crash Arena Turbo Stars is a delightful and very offbeat fighting mobile game for Android smartphones that offers an opportunity to show off your best engineering and designing talents as you try to create a perfect battle vehicle with which you will then smash your opponents' cars to splinters. Equipping your car with a missile launcher, a buzzsaw, or other deadly weaponry will increase your chances of success.
While there is no solid storyline in CATS: Crash Arena Turbo Stars, it can boast individual narrative details that tie the gameplay together and provide some logical interpretation of all that is happening on the screen. The idea at the core is simple but very appealing: you need to engineer a battle bot car and make it as deadly as it can be. You can use all sorts of devices and ammunition to enhance your vehicle and disguise your weapons any way you can for attacks to be more powerful and sudden.
At the start, you will have a limited choice of weapons and spare parts for building new machines, but as you progress through the game, you will discover that you can replenish your inventories by picking up what is left of the destroyed cars or by using in-game currency to shop for the needed stuff.
Watching but Not Manipulating
The fighting part itself can be incredibly exhilarating or downright tiresome, depending on how hands-on of a player you like to be. In CATS: Crash Arena Turbo Stars, players have no control over their cars during battles, and all they can do is watch, analyze, learn from your mistakes, and ideally have fun. The fights are short and fierce, but can sometimes cause quite a lot of frustration if your cherished killer vehicle suddenly flips over on its back and stays like that until the barriers of the fighting arena finally close and smash it into dust.
Players can upgrade their old weapons by winning them through betting on live battles that take place in the game’s arena. The betting system is straightforward: you bet some of your car parts, and if the player who you cheer for wins, you will get some weapon upgrades. Another way to quickly obtain cooler weapons or the missing car parts is to purchase those in the in-game store with actual money.
Players who prefer a more laid-back gaming experience will surely appreciate the leisurely fun and many creative opportunities that CATS: Crash Arena Turbo Stars presents. Its plain but entertaining gameplay, lovely music, vivid art style together make the game an excellent choice for kids and adult players.
