With the rising popularity of first person shooters, it isn’t really a surprise to see developers create first person shooting games. Not only is it an easy way to get your name out there, it’s also a great way to let people know how some developers can get an old formula, add a few things in it, and turn it into such a great game. Red Crucible Reloaded may look a little like Counter Strike or Call of Duty, but the game can be played without having a console or a heavy gaming PC, all you need is a browser and you’re good to go!
Red Crucible Reloaded is a first person shooter that might be familiar to a lot of gamers that have played the genre, as it takes inspiration from most of them, and mixes them into one great little package for your browser. The game plays like your regular FPS games on PC. You move using your keyboard, specifically with W making you move forward, S to move backward, and A and D to strafe left and right. Pressing Shift will make you sprint so you can move faster across the battlefield. You press the R key to reload your weapon. You can also press the 1, 2, 3, and 4 keys to change your weapon. For the shooting part of the game, you use the mouse. Your cursor will be your aim, and wherever your cursor is, your crosshair (your aim) will be there too. Clicking the left mouse button will use your currently equipped weapon. Using your right mouse button will make you aim down your weapon’s sight, giving you better accuracy when shooting. The maps in this game are pretty good, as well as the music and video quality of the game being alright. It’s a great game to play if you just miss the days when you played Counter Strike and just want to play instantly. This game is so quick to play that all you need to do is open a browser, log in (if you don’t have an account, it takes less than 5 minutes to make one), then play!
