Be it the internet, or personal computers, action games enjoy widespread attention by both console and desktop gaming crowds. They enjoy perhaps a major chunk out of the market share of games on the internet as well as on consoles, and the trend is not likely to reverse any time soon. Running through forests or suburbs, shooting enemies along the way to gain points and advance levels, has in it a pleasure that many have become used to these days. It is a form of entertainment that is easily accessible for most, is reasonably well-priced, and has a huge entertainment value. Moreover, the database of such games is so extensive that finding a game suited to a specific personís needs is no longer a big deal at all.

Among the famous names in this genre is Red Riot. Itís an online action game and absolutely free to play. The story follows a soldier, complete with a jetpack on his back and a weapon in the hand, en route to destroying all new world soldiers. It has been made interesting with the inclusion of drones, tanks, base, radar tower and tons of other features. It promises great game-play and visual effects, despite the limitations of online games.

The objective of the soldier here is to fight the new breed of soldiers by attacking and destroying their weaponry and bases. Stars, present at various places throughout the field of the game, give you points when you obtain them, which you can then use to purchase weapons or upgrade the ones you already have. Arrow keys are used to keep the soldier airborne, and itís best if the soldier doesnít touch the ground, because if it does, itíll be attacked from all quarters, and that can significantly reduce the life bar.

The player uses the mouse to aim and shoot at enemies, or presses the space bar to bring special weapons into use. This can later help to upgrade your soldier by getting effective attack skills for him to destroy the enemy. It is fun to play and very easy to get the hang of: just make sure you avoid the bullets and the missiles and youíre good!

Acquiring Star Points

Each time you eliminate an enemy or their weaponry a golden star is seen flying where you shot them. Once you catch the star (preferably before it hits the ground) you will be able to use the points to upgrade your weapons or buy new ones. Itís not an easy job; you have to avoid the bullets and you need to keep shooting to move the enemies out of the way while moving towards it so you require split-second reflexes to get it effectively every time. Remember, practice makes perfect!

Health Packs

In case your life bar is decreasing rapidly during or as a result of a massive enemy attack and you need to increase it, watch out for the dropping health pack. You need to catch it before it hit the ground because once it hits, you canít access it without being finished off. Once you catch a health pack, your life bar will increase and you can get the soldier back to its job. You can also buy life with the points you gain, however, remember that the ďprice of lifeĒ will increase with every purchase.

Weapons Upgrade

Using star points wisely is a skill you need to master. Your star points are going to be used for upgrading weapons and purchasing life points. Make sure you keep getting advanced weapons as you progress through each level, because in each level you will be required to complete all five missions.

The final part will be to fight the bosses. As even novices would know that bosses are supposed to be very difficult to finish off, be it any game at all, you have to play with concentration and preserve as many weapons as you can for this last stage.

Red Riot Games Online

The game being online means that multiplayer settings will be available within it for you to be able to play the game with your friends and other online gamers. You may play against them or as a team; using both your points to buy and upgrade your firepower.

So go ahead and challenge your friends or family to game of Red Riot during the weekend online or on your PC. However, if youíre playing with an elderly person, give them a fair chance at winning by challenging them to an easier game; the likes of logic, puzzle or skill games that do not require strategies and reflexes because those can sometimes be confusing. The great thing about all these games is that theyíre free for everyone to enjoy during free time, so itís best to take their advantage and enjoy them to the fullest!
