Nun Attack is as you would expect it to be. Attacking Nuns. Simple right? Not really. It’s a tad more complicated than that, but is mostly based on action, so you will not have a lot of strategy and tactics to deal with (aside from the fun of upgrading and customizing weapons). The game does have a sort of dark setting, but the game is very sarcastic and funny despite that setting. There are four different characters you can play as: Eva, Olga, Rosy and Mandy. Each character has their own special abilities like healing powers, the ability to decoy yourself and etc. Depending on what characters you choose to play as, it will definitely make for some very interesting gameplay (which also somewhat depends on your difficulty as well).
Weapons in the game can be upgraded by earning coins through killing monsters. At the same time, you can spend real money on coins if you feel inclined too. Although, earning coins is extremely easy because every time you kill a monster you get a good 750 or so. That said, there really isn’t a need to spend money, but if you would like to progress a lot faster than usual, spending money on coins might be something to look into.
You might fund Nun Attack to have a similar map that Angry Birds and some other more casual games use. It’s basically just the standard location one, two, three and etc. Each location has the standard three level score as well: Simple, Standard, and Perfection. Usually if you clear an entire location it is very easy to attain perfection. If some monsters and evil portals are not destroyed you will find a lower score than you would get if you had destroyed everything.
Overall it is a pretty fun action-based game. There are a lot of features like Miracles that will keep you interested in the game along with a fairly comedic story line. I won’t spoil it for you, but it has to deal with purging the fallen nun.
One thing that is important to note is that Nun Attack has a lot of levels which end up being very repetitive after you finish the first stages of the game. You may find yourself bored doing the same thing over and over again, and might even find yourself putting the game down. No worries though, it’s fairly addicting and challenging gameplay may keep you wanting to come back (the gameplay isn’t challenging in the sense of actual features, it all is just rather difficult with the touch controls).
Despite the last paragraph, the game is entirely worth playing if you’re looking for a different action based game. It’s theme with Nuns is definitely unique enough that it sparks a lot of interest, but you will find that this game is plagued by what most action games are plagued by: touch controls. If you can get past that and the repetitive levels, I think that this game is very enjoyable.
