Carlo’s Revenge: Death of a Mafia Boss Game Review
February 24, 2012
By Maxwell J. Provo
A quick-paced, easy-to-play shooter, Carlo’s Revenge: Death of a Mafia Boss can at times be confusing and hard to play, however that is part of its challenge. A game of less than ten missions, Carlo’s Revenge is fast-enough to play through in one sitting while being challenging enough to keep you guessing.
The levels of Carlo’s Revenge give quirky instructions that make you think. In one stage, you need to shoot a car’s wheel to get it to veer of a road and run over one of your targets. Apparently, this makes it look like an accident so the fuzz does not catch on. In another phase, the finale, shooting a light is required to kill a group of goons. This triggers a timer which signals how much time there remains in which to eliminate the armed guards around the perimeter and on the roof.
The entire object of Carlo’s Revenge is to go through all of the stages in the least amount of time possible. I managed to get through in about seven and a half minutes. With only four or five stages, this is not a bad way to judge how good one is at the game. The time incentive adds allure to the game that would otherwise be rather pointless seeing as though there are no new rifles, bullets, clothing, or other power-ups to purchase. Points and money are non-existent in this game, unlike a majority of most of the other sniper games here one Stickman Games.
Carlo’s Revenge is a quick game. Though lacking upgrades, points, or monetary rewards, it still manages to please. The time aspect puts a little pressure on you as you wipe out your targets and the gun’s sight has just enough lag to make it challenging. Carlo’s Revenge will keep you playing so that you can see the titular death of a Mafia Boss.
