Death Arena Reality Show
When you're an evil flying sentient demon potato, you know what people like, and people like seeing carnage, mayhem, and violence. So when you're trying to run the Death Arena Reality Show, Entertainment Forge's horizontal shooter, what's a potato to do but give the people what they want and kidnap a bunch of heroes from all over the realms for you to blast out of the sky? In some levels, you'll be blasting your way through minions to keep the ratings high, but in others, you're up against one of the unique heroes and their abilities. Whatever the case, the game's default control is for our flying potato to follow our cursor and fire automatically, nabbing coins for blasted foes to spend on upgrades between levels. You can replay a stage to grind for more cash if you need to... which, in all honesty, is probably going to happen. Death Arena Reality Show's big appeal is its goofy concept and story, which is told through cheeky cutscenes with solid voice acting across the board to deliver the comedic lines. The downside is that the gameplay is pretty standard by comparison, complete with grinding to afford upgrades to bulldoze past the hectic levels, and just doesn't quite prove as engaging as the snarky tone set by the cutscenes. Death Arena Reality Show is still a very solid little flight-based shooter, however, with appealingly frantic levels, and despite some repetition, will appealing to the flying, showboating, evil demon potato in us all.
