A free game for your PC, Raft Wars 3 is the third game in the franchise of the same name. It is the kind of game that you might give twenty minutes to complete in amateur mode, but also one that will pull you in and make sure that you lose track of your time while you play it. Comprised of 10 levels, you may feel the need to marathon the game and beat all ten levels, or play a level, leave it for a bit and come back later.
Using your mouse, you’ll pilot a raft and fire at enemy passersby. Sounds easy, right? It can be, but as the levels increase, so do your enemies health and their aiming skill. As an added element in Raft Wars 3, players will only be able to see their enemies position in the water for a couple seconds before the viewpoint pans back to your own raft. This offers players the more challenging position of having to rely on their memory of the location of the enemy in order to make a successful hit.
So who are you fighting, anyway?
The bad guys consist of pirates, vikings, random security guards and people from the same town as your character that may or may not have some kind of personal agenda against your character. If you have some time to kill and want to try Raft Wars 3 on PC, it is an addicting, fun game to try out.
