Wasteland Angel is a Road Warrior/Death Race hybrid themed isometric car battle game. You are Angel, a beautiful but tough woman travelling around the post-apocalytpic United States in search of your friend, Eks, in your armoured car 'Gypsy'. As you travel around, you encounter towns under attack by Wastelanders and you help to defend them.
You are able to pick up weapon upgrades and special weapons to help you do this, and there is a wide variety of each, though the by far most useful is your main weapon, as most of the rest require good placement and the enemy AI is erratic at best. One of the problems with the weapon upgrade system is that eventually your main gun becomes powerful enough you can quite literally pick a spot and just rotate on it like a turret. Thankfully, weapon upgrades do not carry from one stage to the next.
Wasteland Angel, is, however one a game added to the list of games where the minigames are better than the actual game. At the end of each stage is a bonus level, which takes the game from isometric to first person, which I found a lot more fun than the base missions themselves.
The game's physics engine is... well... it's VERY arcady to say the least. Often times collisions cause your car to spin out of control, way beyond what would be reasonable. Fortunately there is a reset button to right yourself fairly quickly, though a lot of time this can mean failing to save and/or running over civilians. Worse yet, often times enemy cars will get 'stuck' offscreen, preventing you from finishing the wave until a car from the next wave hits them to get them unstuck.
Graphically the game is okay. It isn't spectacular, but I have definitely seen a lot worse. The audio is decent, and the voice acting is comically bad but I am left with the impression that this is on purpose. The music gets irritating VERY quickly, but a lot of the time I didn't notice. I had tuned it out because I was focusing on the sometimes very frantic gameplay.
The game is very short. I was able to complete the game and collect all 40 achievements in just under 4 hours. It has the length and the equivalent overall quality to a mobile game, therefore while it is a lot of fun I think $9.99 is asking a little bit too much. I would recommend this game to anyone who enjoys arcade games, but only if they were able to pick it up on sale for 50% off or better.
