Not the big names like DOTA 2, CS: GO, Team Fortress 2 or recently Apex Legend, it’s Iron Snout that is the free game with the highest score on Steam. With 16 thousand reviews with a record high satisfaction of 97/100, it is not too much to say that Iron Snout is the “king of free games” for the Steam gaming community.
So in the end, what makes a colorful visual mini game so fun, and not so beautiful graphics are praised so much?
First of all, Iron Snout looks playful, but it really doesn’t look like a children’s game at all. Do you remember the story of the three wicked little pigs and old wolves? Iron Snout is like the revenge of a pig, directed by Michael Bay, Luc Besson, any famous director who likes to make action thrilling and bloody action movies.
The strange thing is, the gameplay only uses a few buttons to create combos, the graphics are nothing special, but Iron Snout makes the player unable to leave the keyboard. Each turn, you will have to fight against a flock of gray wolves with all kinds of weapons, mostly stolen from the opponent’s own hands. After this wave, you have to start preparing for the next wave, and the game has almost no end.
Many people even think that it is as addictive as Flappy Bird because it is simple and cannot be stopped playing. Indeed, it must be affirmed that human game tastes are very strange. One minute ago, they also played amazing blockbuster blockbusters, then immediately played games like this “unmatched nonsense”. Anyway, the game is for fun, not the work that makes the player tired, right?
