Bombshell is an action-infused role-playing game that comes to you from the makers of 2013’s Rise of the Triad reboot and 3D Realms—the folks that created the legendary Duke Nukem series. So it’s safe to say it packs some serious heat in the form of over-the-top combat and pyrotechnics, and a liberal dose of humor.
The game is available now in the GeForce NOW store for members to purchase and play instantly on their SHIELD device. Bombshell is priced at $34.99, which includes unlimited streaming rights and a digital download code for GoG.com that you can use to download and install a local copy of the game.
You play as Shelly “Bombshell” Harrison, a former bomb disposal technician turned mercenary for hire. Aliens have kidnapped the president, and you’ll have to do battle across three different planets to get him back, and save the world in the process.
Naturally the odds are long, but you’re not worried – because you’ve got a seriously cool robotic arm that boasts 10 weaponized modifications. These range from typical machineguns and shotguns to some truly inventive, and ultra-destructive, options we won’t spoil here. Combine these with an arsenal of deadly finishing moves, and you have all you need to get the job done, in style!
The brutal combat is portrayed with eye-popping visual flair by an isometric, top-down view similar to games like Diablo, backed with thumping rock soundtrack.
While Bombshell is an action-RPG at heart, it also weaves in gameplay elements typically reserved for first-person shooters, such as a jump mechanic and twin-thumbstick controls that FPS fans will feel right at home with.
As you play you’ll earn experience points that you can use to upgrade your weapons and unlock secondary fire modes that really bring the pain. Plus, you can explore the non-linear levels and take on various optional side quests, which will reward you with even more goodies.
To play, navigate to the GeForce NOW menu within SHIELD Hub on your SHIELD Android TV, portable or tablet. You’ll find Bombshell in the Buy and Play Instantly category.
