Hills of Glory does not fall short of any action, this is yet another indie game focused on the third person view, you start out with your bunker and here you will have to defend it against waves of enemy troopers, it is also similar to a top-down shooter game, you will have to point and shoot your way through the enemies, you have a wide range of weapons to deal damage to a wide range of enemies.

Story mode

The game features some type of story in text after each level but that really isn't the reason you would be playing, you will be playing because you would want to see how fast you aim and how fast you will be able to clear the level, the story to me personally isn't really as interesting as most games, heck most games like this don't even have a story so I bet something is better than nothing.

Gameplay

Here you can see the weapons, by clicking upgrade you can increase a variety of the weapons aspects like reload time and damage.

The story might be off-putting but with what it has in combination of gameplay then its worth it, with most games there must be some type of upgrade system otherwise its just not as fun, well Hills of glory have that upgrade system, you better upgrade to take down enemies as fast as possible in order to protect your base.

Beside upgrading you will also need to spend points in order to buy ammo, however, ammo can be collected on the battlefield, including health and other items, trust me this game is still challenging and you will be forced to use your coins even on easy of course you may also try the Elite level.

Like Fieldrunners 2 you also have a map you can travel on depending if you meet the requirements, defeat a level unlock more clearing all levels on the highest difficulty will earn you more coins to use, this is a good idea for the first 3 levels do them on Elite to give yourself a good start.

This is not all, the game also of different mode like survival, where basically you need to kill the waves of enemy soldiers even faster or you will be overrun and your bunker will get destroyed the level will end when you meet the required amount of enemies killed which is 250 on easy and higher on the Elite level.

Graphics

Here you can see the graphics isn't to bad and the game will blur any distant objects so most systems will be able to run this game.

In terms of graphics it's what you would expect from any general indie game, its good looking buts it's not AAA quality, to me this is good enough, its good enough for me to see whats going on and where and overall, its not bad looking at all if you consider low budget games like Fieldrunners 2 and Hills of Glory.

Conclusion

Hills of Glory is very addictive however it doesn't have many levels and might make many that want to give it a try to stop and think again before they give it a go, this is not the case believe me when I tell you that one level will keep you busy for some time.

The game is challenging and maybe too much for some but if you are like me that can easily finish a game in a few hours then you want that extra difficulty so that it was at least worth the buck you spend that's how I see it anyway.

I understand that this game might not be for everyone as many don't like platform shooter games like this especially when its aim and shoot as your general controls yet to many this might be one of the best they have ever played just because it has all the elements of a proper game even if it don't have many levels it still keeps you busy for some time.
