Preview: God’s Trigger
An angel and demon team up to fight the forces of darkness in a brand new, fast paced action game from developer One More Level.
God’s Trigger is a twin stick shooter where you play as Harry and Judy. Although the majority of the controls are the same for both characters, they have different abilities which help you in your quest. Harry can temporarily become invisible and do power slides, whereas Judy is able to teleport through solid objects. She can also use mind control forcing enemies to fight each other.
Although the action is fast and furious, there are plenty of ways to tackle each level. Bursting down doors with guns blazing will only get you so far. It’s actually more likely to end up with your head getting blown off!
Planning your attacks is essential, especially using stealth to kill bad guys quietly. You can also mark enemies and take them out using a Matrix style super cool slow-motion effect.
One of the many things that impressed me was the fluidity of the gameplay. Seamlessly switching between characters, whilst executing a series of attacks felt extremely satisfying!
As well as having a wide range of moves, you are able to upgrade Harry and Judy with different perks and abilities. This means you can customise how you want to play the game based on your own style.
You will need every ounce of skill at your disposal as the game is quite tough. Enemies can kill you instantly, meaning you have to stay on your toes at all times. Thankfully there are no loading screens when you die meaning you are straight back into the game. Another bonus is the ability to play in co-op with a friend.
The graphics are very good and I liked the grindhouse/b-movie style. The preview level I played showed off a cowboy setting. I was particularly impressed with the level of detail as the camera zoomed in and out of the screen. There are also nice touches of humour, especially between Harry and Judy.
The biggest compliment I can give God’s Trigger is that it reminded me a lot of Hotline Miami. Saying that, I feel God’s Trigger has plenty of new ideas and is strong enough to stand shoulder to shoulder with such a great game.
I was very impressed with my brief time playing God’s Trigger, and I’m really looking forward to getting my hands on the final version when it is released later this month.
God’s Trigger is available for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 on 18th April 2019
