On this occasion, the author will give a brief review of the game that is still hype, namely Sausage Man.
Sausage Man, which was released at the end of last June, is a mobile game made by XD with the Battle Royale genre. With Fortnite-style cartoon graphics and PUBG-style serious gameplay, this game can at least be a breath of fresh air in the Battle Royale genre.
Curious, the author decided to download it on his favorite emulator. You can download Sausage Man on Google Play Store and TapTap. For now, there is still no information on when Sausage Man will be present on the iOS platform.
Before playing, it turns out that there are several files that must be downloaded again. The funny thing is, after logging into the game, the author is given the freedom to choose the gender of the sausage that there is no significant difference between the two.
Finally, before starting the game, the author went to the Training Ground to do Keyboard Mapping settings and try out the various weapons available.
Sausage Man – New Mobile Battle Royale Game
Still Battle Royale, But With Sausage
Battle Royale is a genre that combines elements of survival and exploration, where there will only be one winner in a match. Of course, there is no significant difference with other Battle Royale genre games, it’s just that here we control a sausage.
Fortnite Cartoon Graphics, PUBG Serious Gameplay
It would not be wrong to say that Sausage Man is a mix between Fortnite and PUBG. With Fortnite-style cartoon graphics, and with serious PUBG-style gameplay, this game can still seem challenging to play. And like other battle royale games, in this game, there are several interesting modes to play.
In Sausage Man, the choice of weapons varies greatly to suit the playing style of the players. Starting from SMG, Assault Rifle, Sniper, Shotgun, Pistol, to unique weapons such as Gattling Gun are available for use.
Players can also use Skills in the form of lootable items in matches, add attachments to weapons, drive vehicles in the form of pigs, balls, and even UFOs are available in this game.
Navigating the map will feel more efficient when using a ball-shaped vehicle. Besides being able to move quickly, you can shoot and even maneuver to avoid other sausage shots.
The appearance of the Brawl Stars-style rank reward system. Even if you play F2P, it won’t be a problem because there are so many missions that you can complete to get rewards. and the Brawl Stars-style rank system seems to make this game has its own charm.
With the Brawl Starts-style rank system, it is possible to motivate even casual players to compete with other players. If a player has a limited ability to compete, this will certainly boomerang for the Brawl Stars-style rank system which limits the prize that can only be taken at a certain level.
Grind might be a solution, but it would be better if the prize could be obtained from a free Season Pass only so that it would not seem like forcing casual players to compete.
There is a Season Pass
Not to forget, to complete this free-to-play game, Sausage Man also has a Season Pass. With a reward system similar to that found in Apex Legends, there are 100 levels and 2 special rewards when reaching that level.
With a duration per season of approximately 7 weeks, at least this can be a motivation to play this game without having to worry about the existing ranking system. Plus Weekly Missions, Daily Missions, and Weekly Activities will make progress easier when completing this Season Pass.
For additional information, the price of this Season Pass is in the range of 175 thousand and does not include tax. Especially for Season 1, Sausage Man gives a discount of 60% for Gold Season Pass and around 65% for Gold Season Pass Premium Edition.
Customize Your Sausage, All You Want
Sausage Man gives players complete freedom to customize their own sausage. No matter what gender of sausage you choose, players are given complete freedom of imagination, so the sausage can wear clothes of any gender.
Starting from Party Card, Outfit, Weapon, Melee, Bubble, Action, Toy, Vehicle, to Item, all can be customized as you wish. By using a good costume, it will add tastiness, a kind of fashion point to your sausage.
Don’t Forget To Be Seasoned With The Gacha Element
It feels for today, there is no mobile game that does not add Gacha elements. Apart from being an ingredient to make other people salty, your sausage looks cooler, there are no additional status elements obtained from these gacha items.
Besides that. There are several types of Supply Boxes with different prices and prizes.
From the Lootbox, players can also get Coupons which can later be exchanged for costumes available in the Shop. There is no exact amount for Coupons obtained from the Loot Box, so exchanging these prizes will definitely take a long time.
Can Be Played On Emulator
There’s nothing wrong with using an emulator if you only play occasionally. But for those of you who want to play seriously, the author suggests using only supported devices. In addition to being matched with fellow emulator users, teammates who play will receive a similar warning.
These warnings will increase the duration of matches with fellow emulator users over time. So make sure you play with friends who also use emulators so that friends who play on smartphones are not affected.
In fact, according to the author, this game will be more exciting if it can be played with a large screen like on a computer, or cross-platform support like Cyber Hunter. The limitation of the small screen on the smartphone seems to be a separate limitation for the author to be able to enjoy this game as a whole.
In addition, this is due to the lack of variations in the battle royale genre game which has a unique theme as unique as Sausage Man. So, it doesn’t feel wrong to have a little hope for the XD Games development team to make a PC version.
Based on the experience gained by the author, Sausage Man is able to provide fresh air on the battle royale genre on mobile platforms which are still dominated by PUBG and Free Fire. With a ranking system like Brawl Stars to get prizes, it seems that this casual game is not too casual-friendly. However, for lovers of the battle royale genre, it will almost certainly not be overwhelmed to compete with other sausages.
