Next Studio has launched the Android version of their violent puzzle game Death Coming. The game puts players in the role of one of the grim reapers subordinates. Their new role means they are tasked with eliminating targets and as many other people as possible by triggering environmental traps and causing accidents.
The goal is to plan and execute a series of accidents by manipulating the environment in order to to eliminate your targets. That might mean something as simple as dropping a flowerpot on a person’s head, or something more complex like luring them into a pool of water and then dropping a power-line into the pool. There is no one way to complete the game’s stages, giving players ample opportunity to experiment.
Death Coming was originally released on Steam in November of last year and currently holds 92% positive user reviews.
If you happen to launch the game and it’s in Mandarin, you can change the game’s language by going to the settings menu (middle icon in the main menu) and tapping on the language option (the last option). The game is in early access (despite not being listed as such on Google Play) and may have more bugs than one might expect from a full release.
Death Coming is free to try and the full game can be purchased for $1.99 via an in app purchase. Here is an excerpt from the game’s description with more information:
— Key Features —
- Non-linear Design
Start with any character you want, and solve the puzzles in any order you like within the limits of the Death Traps and weather conditions.
- Observe, Plan, Execute
Observe the victims to find out their behavior and idiosyncracies. Trigger death traps at the right moment to kill efficiently. The better you know their routines, the better you can prepare your death traps.
- A Morbid Sense of Humor
From suburbia to missile factories, there’s always a wacky way to wreak havoc. Don’t be afraid to laugh at someone’s demise. If you do what you love (in this case, harvesting souls), you’ll never have to work a day in your life!
