With Battle for Gaming, I aim to criticize all the different excessive monetization schemes, that big gaming corporations use in order to suck the last penny out of every gamer. At the core, Battle for Gaming is a First Person Shooter with a simplistic, but recognizable art style.
As of now, there are two different game modes available. There is a story mode, where you can make your way through a storyline. Your choices matter, as there are multiple pathways and endings. The second mode is the Custom Game mode, where you can set your preferred settings and difficulty and try to achieve better and better high scores.
The enemies you face are Lootboxes with different attacks at their disposal. As you shoot your way through hordes of Lootboxes you earn DCs (Different Currencies – the in-game currency), which you can use to buy random rewards through Lootboxes. Those rewards are temporary improvements for this run only. During your playthrough, you also find so-called DLC fragments. You can use those to permanently upgrade different perks at the Centre (starting point of the level).
The upgrades include things like your movement speed, your fire rate, the amount of ammunition you can carry, etc. But with DLC fragments you can also unlock a new weapon and the ability to dual wield.
