Iron Snout – Xbox One Review

Iron Snout is a fighting game with a slight difference.

You play one of the little piggies fighting against endless hordes of wolves looking to kill you by any means necessary, the biggest difference is that you stay central on the screen and you can’t move around the level other than jumping, crouching and attacking.

You start on a woodland level, fighting wolves who are dressed in relevant outfits for the background, as you move through the other backgrounds the wolves will change in character and outfit to match the environment.

From the first minute you will get an endless stream of wolves coming from both directions which you can punch and kick to take them down, you will meet enemies carrying weapons such as axes, knives and chainsaws on the first level.

As you punch them they will drop the weapon which gives you the option of grabbing it in midair and using it against them, regardless of the weapon type it will break quite quickly and again pop up in the air, you can then grab the remnant and throw it at the enemies.

Essentially that is the long and short of the game you punch, kick and skewer as many enemies as you possibly can to score as many kills as possible.

As you kill higher numbers of enemies another couple of backgrounds will unlock giving you a tiny bit of variation, there are also a couple of other game types for you to try such as sudden death where you will have just one hit point.

From start to finish I completed the game and all 1000 achievement points in around 30 minutes!

The game wont really do a huge amount to attract you back once you have completed everything so while it is fairly satisfactory fun for a short period of time there is just no longevity to the game, it very much strikes me as a game that was designed for handheld devices that was easily ported across to Xbox.

Despite the fairly cheap price and the fact that I did actually enjoy playing the game for the short time it took me to play the lot I cant really recommend it strongly to anyone other than the real achievement hunters out there, especially when you will likely see it reduced even further within a short time.
