After the period of exclusivity that the title has lived in Stadia, the new installment of Orcs Must Die finally arrives! to Steam, and with it to other gaming platforms in the nimbus like NVIDIA GeForce NOW. This allows us to enjoy the new Automaton Entertainment hinge on Android, a very interesting experience if we consider that Orcs Must Die! 3 is perfectly adapted to the gameplay of mobile devices.
And that is precisely what we are going to whisper about today on the blog. Surely you have already heard a lot of criticism about the performance of this hinge on PC and consoles, but what is not so common is to comment on the experience of spreading Orcs Must Die! 3 on an Android phone. But once …
PC gaming on Android with NVIDIA GeForce NOW
GeForce NOW is NVIDIA’s nimbus gaming platform, a service that allows us to spread PC games over the nimbus from any device, be it a mobile phone, such as an Android Smart TV or an old PC with outdated hardware.
The upside to GeForce NOW is that it is not a store, but a service. A very important detail, since all we have to do is take the hinge that we already have in our Steam, Epic Games, Ubisoft Connect or EA Origin library and synchronize it with the NVIDIA platform to be able to play it on the nimbus from any device.
The orcs must perish! 3 it’s a real treasure for organization lovers
The orcs must perish! It is an organization title that is included within the type of Tower of defense or tower of defense, but with a broad focus on the activity. In this way, we will have to prevent the waves of orcs that are heading towards our tower – in this case the interdimensional gap that we must protect – from reaching their objective, but not only by placing traps, but by actively fighting against them with our character in hand-to-hand combat. to the body.
Therefore, while the real “crumb” of the hinge is found in the multitude of traps that we can use to hinder the advance of the orcs – from spikes, through walls that shoot arrows, fiery furnaces, catapults and much more -, much of our chances of expiration will depend on how we fight them once we get them toe-to-toe.
A little face lift keeping the utensils that work best
We are certainly talking about a leisurely hinge, as much of each hinge will be devoted to setting traps and building a winning organization without a preset time edge. All movements must be calculated to the millimeter, but once we have everything decided and activate the wave of orcs, the rampage will begin.
And this is where much of the fun of the hinge lies, since many times you will see how your traps are not as effective as you thought, and you will find yourself trying to stop an exaggerated amount of enemies that do not stop murmuring, saying phrases like “¿¿ When do we have dinner? ” and behave like real idiots.
It is clear that in Orcs Must Die! 3 Developer Automata Entertainment is committed to continuity, keeping the best-performing classic tools from the dynasty, but improving the graphics and adding more traps, more orcs, and more fun. It is giving an opinion, associating more content than what the followers of the franchise really like.
The maps have even been carefully detailed, and that’s little noticeable. The main campaign has 18 different maps, all of them complex enough so that we can use different defense strategies and develop a multitude of solutions for the same problem. This will mean that the first time we face a new planisphere, things do not go as expected and we will have to think about how to improve to get out of the quagmire.
The OMD! 3 Android experience
The orcs must perish! 3 is a hinge that adapts very perfectly to small screens such as mobile phones, since the interface of the hinge is very simple and has large icons. In a corner we have metal, traps and weapons. At the top we find the life counter, in the center the separation points and in the neighboring one a small leader planisphere.
Of course it is essential that we use a controller to spread. The messenger mapping is perfectly designed and we can set traps, move through inventory, and fight orcs hand-to-hand as fluently as we would with our PC mouse and keyboard.
We are facing a title that also adapts wonderfully to the idiosyncrasy of mobile phones, since the games are relatively short and it lends itself a lot to spreading in those dead times in which you have zero better to do than take a look at your mobile. Organization games of this type can be very fun if we play them this way, and this is demonstrated by many of the best organization games that we find on Android, with other titles such as Clash Royale, Bad North or The Battle of Polytopia .
At the content level we find a main campaign with 18 missions where we are told the story mode of the hinge, sufficiently docile at the plot level but with a very high replayability value. OMD! 3 even offers a survival mode with endless waves of orcs and two additional hinge modes (“Revolt” and a new campaign mode called “Staggered Response”) that we will only unlock after the main campaign ends. Most coffee growers will even be able to sign up for weekly challenges to undo new challenges and compete for the highest score with players from around the world.
If you have never played OMD! But you like games like Warcraft, card games like Magic: The Gathering, Hearthstone or the organization set in worlds of sword and witchcraft, you will undoubtedly discover a little treasure in this dynasty. OMD Players! of all their lives, for their part, they will find in this third installment all their expectations satisfied.
Personally, I have objected having more fun than I expected with this hinge and, unlike other titles that we have discussed on the blog, such as Watch Dogs Legion, the interface, menus and texts of the hinge do not offer any kind of visual. barrier. to enjoy on the small screen of a mobile phone. In short, a highly recommended title that feels like a gauntlet for a nimbus gaming service like GeForce NOW.
This review has been done using a Razer Kishi command for Android, a Samsung Galaxy S10 + smartphone with a 6.4-inch screen and a connection Broadband Wi-Fi. To spread in the nimbus we have used a Premium Priority subscription in NVIDIA GeForce NOW with Ray Tracing and unlimited sessions, although even a free subscription mannequin is suitable (more details). Please note that the experience may be different with another subscription controller, smartphone, or mannequin. In any case, always make sure you have a good internet connection to get the best results.
