Say a little prayer
A-MEN, the military strategy title for PlayStation Vita, unfolds at A-Cor, the world's biggest producer of the robot soldiers known as A-Droids. It's here we meet A-MEN's heroes following a massive explosion at the factory which accidentally releases hundreds of lethal A-Droids. These wayward troopers must be rounded up before they cause chaos around the globe.
You'll embark on a journey through a series of vividly different worlds, featuring multiple challenges and including the Forest, Seacoast, Winterland and Factory levels.
In chasing down the A-Droids and thwarting their traps, A-MEN presents you with a series of complex puzzles brought to life on the PS Vita system's bright OLED screen. Turn the mechanical army's devious tactics back onto them and pick your enemies off one by one.
Escape with your life, then revisit each level to improve your score and refine your strategy skills.
Take control of up to five army specialists in A-MEN in your quest to rid the world of the A-Droid menace. Aardvark the spy, muscle-bound Aurelius, crack commando Anaconda, engineering genius Antler and Private Atom provide a unique set of skills that you must blend to master each level.
Each soldier has his own distinct, colourful personality and unique abilities that you can take advantage of, while certain characters can be combined to power up individual capabilities. Aurelius, for instance, can throw other troopers over traps and obstacles.
Experiment with different combinations of your A-MEN to solve complex levels. In one early level, you'll be confronted with two strikingly different enemies – one who'll think nothing of attacking you head-on, and another with the brains to avoid your painstakingly set traps. Master specialised approaches to each and you'll lay a great foundation for the conundrums ahead.
A-MEN on PS Vita lets you get hands-on with the business of tactical warfare, making full use of the system's touchscreen, rear touch pad and dual analog sticks to guide your soldiers around the battlefield.
A-MEN will have you pondering the best way to complete each level. Do you go into a scenario with all guns blazing? Or do you set dynamite beneath a busy bridge and wait for your enemies to walk into your trap?
Hidden extras and alternative routes and solutions can all be discovered with time – and a little skill. Alternatively, you might want to simply get through each level as fast as possible, coming back a second, third or fourth time to reveal secrets which can help you achieve an even better score.
However you choose to play, A-MEN will keep you coming back for more, just like the very best brain-teasers. It is simple to get to grips with yet difficult to master with style – especially when you venture into the later levels.
