Review: Warhammer: Doomwheel (Android)

Pilot your Doomwheel as it rattles through the battlefield at breakneck speeds in this fast-paced infinite arcade adventure. Shatter, skewer, shock and bounce foes of all shapes, sizes, and races as you claw out territory for yourself across the Old World. Develop a newer, deadlier, Doomwheel in your workshop while fending off the vengeful plots of your backstabbing rivals.

  • The different regions which are uniquely themed from collectibles in the game to backdrops, architecture etc.
  • As you progress in level you encounter new enemies and enemies that act differently like flying or jump at you.
  • View in-game is on an angle so you can see the side of your Doomwheel and the level in front of you.
  • End of level breakdown.
  • Each territory will have missions (usually 3) and do them all will conquer that territory.
  • Missions are varied from simple ones like play x amount of times to more difficult ones like get to x length in one run or kill certain enemies.

Cons:

  • Had a few hard crashes.
  • Game states on the main menu that it doesn’t support cloud saves despite being patched in.
  • Can be hard sometimes to see obstacles.
  • Hitting a solid wall is instant death even if you just clip it slightly at times.
  • Once you have unlocked all territories there is little else to do.
  • Needs more locations and races.
  • The slowdown in busy parts.
  • Can be perceived as a tad too simple, In terms of levels and upgrades, All upgrade slots are just the same stat boosts but in different areas.
  • Lacks any real customization options.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
