Description

The Last Friend is a tower-defense game beefed up with strategic Beat ’em-up elements, where players must balance their attack and defense tactics to defend their mobile dog shelter.

Story

The game’s storyline follows the aftermath of a worldwide chemical war that few humans survive. The remaining humans are divided into two factions: Survivors, who are trying to rebuild the world in a sustainable way, and Mutants, who are doing just the opposite. Our main character owns a mobile shelter where he cares for his canine friends – especially now that dogs have become a food source for mutants! The Last Friend must keep hordes of mutants at bay using an array of traps, turrets and his very own fists!

Features

  • Dynamic comic style and animations
  • Nostalgic feeling that echoes classic arcade Beat’em-ups
  • Each rescued dog shares a unique trait with our hero, which then can be equipped as a perk to improve his skills.
  • Fast-paced fight mechanics, the real essence of a Beat ’em-up game – from basic dodges, grabs and jabs, to special attacks and combos. Equip your characters with different perks to channel their skills and customize your fighting style.
  • A multi-tasking experience that merges strategy and action for all those dog-lover players out there!
