Splatoon - Nintendo Wii U
Splatoon is a third-person shooter set in a color world. Players control Inklings, characters that run around and shoot ink with a gun but can also transform into a squid to traverse through the ink. The game is controlled through the GamePad with the left analog stick for movement. Next to regular means to aim, gyroscopic motion control, by tilting the device, is supported with the right analog stick to look left or right and the triggers to shoot with a machine-gun like weapon and throw large bombs. The game offers a large selection of primary and secondary weapons that can be equipped before battle. These include regular guns, rifles, bombs, grenades, a giant paint roller and items such as a shield, enemy detectors and inkstrikes. The game can also be played using a Pro Controller or Classic Controller, optionally in conjunction with a MotionPlus-enabled Wii Remote.
Shooting ink colors the environment and the areas that are covered in a color can be used to traverse quickly as a squid by transforming. In squid form the character cannot shoot, but moves quicker, can hide and can also scale vertical surfaces and swim through grates. Ink ammo is not unlimited and is refilled by transforming into a squid. Characters can jump, also in squid form with a more powerful dash jump. Enemies shoot ink in a different color that covers the environment as well. This slows down the characters in regular form and cannot be swum through in squid form, so they need to counter it by painting it over with their own color. There is a limited amount of health that can be regenerated by seeking cover.
