Well, well, well; who do we have here? Is that Nathan Drake, the iconic protagonist of the Uncharted game series? It’s an interesting move by Sony’s Playstation Mobile Publisher to see Uncharted: Fortune Hunter [Free] come to iOS & Android, yet not a surprising one. With Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End set to be released on May 10th of this year, it is actually a good strategic move. This is exactly what Bethesda did to advertise Fallout 4, they released Fallout Shelter.
The question remains, is Uncharted: Fortune Hunter just a means to market Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, or is it an entertaining game that’s worth our time and effort? The mobile game is an action-puzzle adventure which features memorable characters such as Nathan Drake and Victor Sullivan. When playing the game, Hitman GO & Lara Croft GO will come to mind mainly due to the similarity in game mechanics where you need to reach a destination by avoiding environmental dangers on a board like platform.
With over 200 fatal puzzle chambers, six different types of puzzles, and over 50 types of treasures hidden across four worlds; you and Nathan will be uncovering treasures that belonged to notorious pirates, bold adventurers, and talented thieves. Furthermore, you can connect to Playstation Network and bring your rewards to the multiplayer mode in Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End once its released.
So is it worth playing? It’s definitely not the entire Uncharted experience that fans would hope for, but it stands as the only & best Uncharted experience that we have on mobile. With its cartoon-like art style and vivid colors, you will find this game as a worthy mobile spin-off of a much treasured franchise.
