How do I play Overkill Mafia?
The shoot-em-up scenarios operate with an arcade-style control system, with the left thumb controlling your aim and the right letting you fire bullets. The key is to get your enemy in your sights quickly and then let 'em have it.
When it comes to shooting wise guys, there are two things to keep in mind. First, you'll have to reload often, and it can take a good amount of time to do so. When you can, upgrade your reload speed, as it'll save you some health when you need it most.
Second, headshots are the easiest way to bring guys down. Some fall right away when you hit them in the noggin; others require a couple more hits before they eventually die. Regardless, always aim for the head when you get a chance. It'll take some practice, especially when they're firing at you, but it'll save health and ammo.
In addition, watch out for innocent civilians! Hitting them will attract the cops and also slow your firing rate, so you'll want to avoid them at all costs.
What can I purchase in Overkill Mafia?
The first thing you'll want to focus on is weaponry. As you progress through Overkill Mafia, you'll start out with a simple pistol, but will soon upgrade to tommy guns, machine guns and other heavy pieces of firepower. Buy these as soon as you can, as they'll help you bring bad guys down quicker. Don't forget about the upgrades as well, particularly that precious reload.
In addition, there's a shop where you can deck out your character in designer duds. However, you won't see him too much in the game, so don't worry about what he's wearing. Instead, make sure you invest in plenty of secondary aids, including bandages to restore lost health, a gang support option for additional firepower and Molotov cocktails that can torch groups of baddies.
How do I gain street reputation in Overkill Mafia?
It all depends on how well you do in the game. With each mission you complete, you gain a little bit of reputation in each area, in a city divided up into stages. After conquering one area, you can easily move onto the next and make a name for yourself there. However, be warned - with each new area you shuffle into, you'll run into tougher opposition and more innocent civilians. Fire carefully and you might take over the city. If not, you might want to take a trip out of town.
Do I need to pay for anything in Overkill Mafia?
The game has a decent free-to-play system, but if you want the better weapons right away (which you will, as bad guys begin to stack up), you may want to make an investment with real money. The game uses cash, but the main thing you'll buy are liquor bottles, which unlock the premium content. You can buy extra for anywhere from $1.99 for a Party Platter to $19.99 for a Big Time Distiller pack.
See what weapons you want and make your purchase(s) accordingly. It's your decision, and your pistol isn't useless, but it's nice to have the option.
