    Tapping Continue is going to bring up the loading screen
    .
    You will hear a voice over as someone speaks and chats the text. Bear in mind this game is one of the top games available for the Android platform currently. It has cutting edge graphics and game-play, it also features full multiplayer capabilities, and it is described by many as the equivalent of a PS3 game.

    Tap to shoot every time there is an enemy and continue running because you're trying to escape the bad guys
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  10. 10
    It's telling us to tap the special button to use selected ability
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    Run forward and join your friends
    .
    They're going to ask you to provide suppressive fire, so you'll want to do that. Bear in mind, this is a high action game. This is NOT something you can play while you're driving or sitting in traffic or even in between meetings. It is an actual real game, and it will drain the battery of your phone relatively quickly. However, if you enjoy this type of game, it is exceptional. It is one of the best games available on any Android phone currently on the market, provided of course that you're into sci-fi shooter games.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  17. 17
    Now you're going to want to get the bad guys
    !
    Run up to some cover and shoot. It also tells you what button to push to throw a grenade.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  18. 18
    The objective here is to continue providing suppressive fire
    .
    There are guys continuously jumping off the roof behind you. You can continue running forward if you'd like to, however, due to the limitations, you can only run so far. Pressing and holding the Shoot button allows you to provide a continuous burst of fire. You can turn when someone is shooting, which will be indicated by the red marks on the screen.

    As I like to do in all of my tutorials, I've died, which is fine
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  20. 20
    When you die you'll be presented with an advertisement
    .
    Some of you may have trouble trying to figure out what to do to get rid of the advertisement; however, there's a very tiny red X in the top right corner of your screen. Tap that tiny red X.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  21. 21
    Here we can retry or go back to the main menu
    .
    I'm going to go back to the main menu because death in these games is always my excuse to take you back and show you any additional tips or tricks you may need to know.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  22. 22
    Now it will reload back to our main menu
    .
    Once we're on the main menu, we're going to tap on the multiplayer icon so that I can show you how that works too.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  23. 23
    Now you can do a local WiFi match with your friends, or you can do an online match
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  24. 24
    If you choose to do an online match it is going to ask you whether you want to be a new player or use your live account
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  25. 25
    If you're going to do a local WiFi match, it's going to ask if you want to create it or join it
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  26. 26
    You can also go into the armory where you can change and choose different options for your character
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  27. 27
    Tapping on your character will let you choose which color character you would like to have
    .
    If you'd like, you can tap the reset button to set things back in the event you have made changes you're unhappy with. When you're satisfied with it, you can tap the back button.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  28. 28
    You can choose your primary and secondary weapons from a number of set weapons
    .
    As you proceed through the game you'll unlock more weapons.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  29. 29
    You can do the same thing with your primary weapons
    .
    Again, as you proceed through the game you'll unlock more weapons. You'll notice that each weapon has a list at the bottom. If we tap our primary weapon we can see that it's a relatively all around weapon. It does a lot of damage, it's fairly accurate, it fires very quickly, has good range and good mobility.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  30. 30
    The next weapon you could choose in the list does extreme damage, however, it have a very low fire rate, but it also has very good range
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  31. 31
    There's another weapon that offers a lot of mobility and decent damage but has very low range
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  32. 32
    Another weapon with extremely low fire rate but a very dangerous weapon, the sniper rifle, I'm sure you're all familiar with that
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  33. 33
    You can also choose one of the super weapons, the railgun, which is a good all around weapon which does a lot of damage
    .
    Now we're going to tap back.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  34. 34
    Again, we can either create or join a local WiFi game
    .
    If you join, you're simply going to look for your network. If you create one, you're going to be given a number of options. It can be a free-for-all, or you can have specific mission types, team deathmatch, freeze tag, capture the flag, capture the point, instagib, team instagib, and back to the free-for-all. You can change the timer. 5 minutes, 10 minutes, 15 minutes, 20 minutes, no limit. Kill limit of 15, 30, 50, 100 or 0. How many players you'd like to have, from 2 to 12.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  35. 35
    We can also go into the advanced settings
    .
    You can have a weapons set, aim assist, auto balance and killchains.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  36. 36
    Once you've selected what you want you can tap continue
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  37. 37
    It's a last stand free-for-all and now it's loading up a local game over our WiFi
    .
    Your friends can join the game, and it is that simple.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  38. 38
    As you can see, the game is waiting for other players to join but I have no other players at the moment since I'm all alone recording how-to videos
    .
    If you'd like to join me, you're more than welcome to. Just leave a comment in the section below and we'll see if your skills are as good as mine.
