Frontline Commando D-DAY is a 336 MB free download game form the Google Play Store, an arcade and action game by Publisher Glu Mobile. The game is free but there are some In App Purchases that allow you buy items during game play. Frontline Commando D-DAY is basically an action game in which the gamer plays a commando on the frontlines at various locations such as beaches in five separate campaigns (Juno, Sword, Utah, Gold and Omaha) with 145 separate missions based on actual beach landings that happened during World War Two as part of the Allied Invasion into Axis territories. Not only are scenarios selectable but also the weapons at disposal as well. You also have to watch out for mines and other obstacles such as barriers in the enemy territory as you move into the next cover point to dodge enemy fire. So all along the game you will be cowering behind cover points as you tap the gun fire button on screen and control horizontal movements of your protagonist as he avoid minefields and launches bazookas into gruesome heavily fortified battle tanks.
Battle lines are drawn. Time to Kill some Enemies
Such are the scenarios that actually occurred at the Normandy Beach landing during World War Two in France. Visually the game is stunning with details and the mechanics are good to say the least, but so is the voice that commands you all along the game which does become a bit overbearing at times. So does this duck and cover shooter have everything? Mostly, and if you are the kind who loves shooters then this game might be your perfect match, but the fact that it uses history and tries to enliven it, sounds just a bit hackneyed to say the least.
All in all a brilliant effort by Glu Mobile in trying to recreate an epic bit of history and making it more accessible to the new generations in terms of what it was like to be part of World War Two. So follow this one lone soldier as he calls in the Allies for a bombing mission, or sprints into position to man an aircraft gun to fire into Nazi aircraft. World War II comes alive once again on your device and although it wasn’t pretty, this game just ups the glamour quotient a bit on the events that happened during the early 1940s in this part of Europe and the World.
