(SNAPP Reviews aren’t really full-fledged game reviews as much as they are just a way for us to give you a quick “heads-up” on whether a game is good or not. It usually means that we haven’t finished the game yet, but have played a good enough chunk to know if it’s worth your time/money.)
Days Bygone is a castle defense-style game by indie developer, Ricsson Toh. It’s a no-nonsense/all action game about staying alive and surviving as many days as you can. The gameplay itself is your pretty standard castle defense game. You have your ninja (at first) that’s behind a barrier, as they take on endless waves of enemies. The controls are really simple with just tapping where you want to shoot. The object is to not let them break down the barrier. The game starts off a bit dull, but once you get past Day 6 or so, you’ll start learning new abilities. Days Begone may not look that great on the surface. It’s a bit rough around the edges and it’s honestly not bringing much new to the defense genre, but it’s a lot of fun once it opens up. There’s a ton of stuff to unlock. You can upgrade your barriers, find new weapons, recruit new heroes, unlock skills and a bunch more. If you like tapping the hell out of your screen and upgrading everything imaginable, Days Bygone is a fun little diamond in the rough.
