Evil Factory is a retro arcade game loaded with awesome boss battles
In this age of games that have near photo-realistic graphics, there is still a market for titles that have retro pixel-themed art styles. If they were released in the 1980s, they would look right at home. That’s clearly what publisher Nexon and developer Neople have tried to do with this week’s worldwide release of Evil Factory for Android in the Google Play Store.
The game’s backstory is a mix of 1980s James Bond action and gadgets combined with Disney-like animated cartoon characters to battle (yes, you read that sentence correctly). Your character’s name is Leo and his mission is to go inside a fortress filled with these kinds of boss creatures who want to rule the world. You get some remote assistance in your various missions as you take out giant walruses, penguins, fish, cats in mech armor and more.
You can upgrade your weapons to deal with the more powerful enemies and bosses you have to defeat in the various levels. There are even some old-fashioned game cartridges that you can collect inside Evil Factory that will allow you to play a variety of 8-bit mini-games. Why bad guys have game cartridges in their fortress is a thought exercise for another time.
Evil Factory is played from a top-down perspective, and based on our brief time with the game, it looks like it will be a fun action-packed title to spend some time with. If you are a fan of 1980s 8-bit games like this, you should have some fun blowing stuff up while also listening to the retro-style electronic soundtrack.
While Evil Factory looks and plays like a retro game, it is ultimately a free-to-play mobile title, which means there is the option to buy in-app coins to purchase new weapons and upgrades faster. There are also online leaderboards, daily content drops and plans for special weekly events to keep the game fresh.
