When Squid Game came out on Netflix, it's safe to say that many were glued to their screens to watch it and others were prepared to make games about it like Squid Shooter. The world of Squid Game is a brutal one and this game captures that to a degree but with much less brutality and more ragdoll physics going on. It follows the premise of the show to a very basic degree with the most notable connection being the assets. Still, it lets you revisit a lot of the elements of the series as you unleash firepower on all of them.
About Squid Shooter
It seems like forever since Squid Game came out and the creator has been taking his time with continuing it. To hold us over, we've had to deal with many games related to the show, some being realistic and others more comical. This game leans towards the latter while having a battle royale kind of touch to it. It's an endurance challenge that tests your perseverance and your curiosity to see just how long you can go. There may be an end to this particular Squid Game if you're willing to see it through, but it could take you quite some time.

The game is presented in levels and the goal of each one is to eliminate all of the opponents in the arena. The number of opponents you need to defeat is tracked in the top left corner of the screen. Your health and ammo is shown in the bottom left corner of the screen. If your health bar is fully depleted, you'll have to restart the level.
Each level begins with you spawning in a random location as enemies begin to make their way toward your location. Enemies will vary in shape and size but will attack using a variety of melee weapons. Other enemies will spawn in vantage points on various structures where they will throw projectiles and grenades at you. You're restricted to the ground but are free to move around and use the structures as cover.
Between levels, you can choose different weapons and power-ups to take into battle. The ones you buy will occupy the numbered slot of that weapon type. As indicated by the note, everything you buy will only last two levels.
Tips and Tricks
There's absolutely no rush to eliminate enemies as quickly as possible as everything is in your favor. Enemies move very slowly and you have so much health to absorb damage. The biggest threats are grenades so keep an eye out for their highlighted icons.
