About 12 is Better Than 6

About this game

New mechanics:

  • Horse chase - this is what Westerns are supposed to have, right? Actual horse chase in a desert!
  • River rafting - you appear on a raft in the middle of a river, what would you do? Shoot and pray to gods, of course!

Rob two trains, because one is never enough.

New enemies:

  • Berserk - a barrage of bullets and contempt for his own death. No one’s joking around in Mexico!
  • Dynamite-equipped Foes - fences and fallen tables are not the safe protection they used to be.

Don't forget to add 12 is Better Than 6: The Apostles to your Wishlist!

About the Game

It is 1873. An escaped slave is slowly walking through the desert, making his way from Mexico to Texas. He keeps a revolver close and is wearing the sombrero stolen from a dead man.

Key Features:

Deadly gunfights

  • You’ll need to cock the revolver with one trigger before being able to shoot by pressing another trigger. One false move and you’ll be overrun in an instant.

Authentic weapons

  • Winchesters, double-barreled guns, revolvers, and Gatling guns will gladly help you to destroy all of the gringos. By the way, we have a RAT with dynamite

An enthralling story

  • Live through the journey of an escaped Mexican prisoner fighting for survival and freedom in the 1870s in the United States

Choose your style

  • You can choose to take a more stealthy approach to surprise your enemies, or even just sneak straight past them

A splendid art style

  • The game is drawn by hand with pen and paper to create an interesting visual experience

Setting

  • Real places and towns, the spirit of the desert, and the most desperate Bandidos of the district will help you to plunge into the breathing and cruel world of the Wild West

Upgrades

  • You'll find breastplates that will have a 50% chance to deflect some bullets, a fast recharging skill that will allow the hero to insert 2 bullets at once, extreme accuracy (less spread for your shots), being able to kill an enemy in stealth without attracting the unwanted attention of his friends, and more!

12 is Better Than 6 is a top down shooter that you have to watch the weapons and ammo you use to get through the levels. I played half of it but going to restart it live on stream to add it to our completion list soon.

12 is Better Than 6 is a topdown shooter that needs a bit of skill from time to time. But it's a fun game if u can grab it for a low price.

Edit, after finishing the game: I cannot bring myself to recommend it anymore. While it was fun in the beginning, there are too many things ruining the game towards the end. First is a bug that resets certain progress if you repeat an earlier level. The perks you bought and the hats you collected are reset and you cannot buy them again. You have to play the game through and then replay levels if you want to get all achievements. This bug has been talked about in the discussions/ feedback for a WHILE and nothing has been fixed. The story, while somewhat interesting at first (not original but nice to follow) just gets more confusing and boring to follow the further you get. I have to admit that i ended up skipping quite a few cutscenes because of it. The ending of the whole thing just feels like the devs just didn't want to write/ continue with the game anymore and just forced an ending. -- After finishing Police Stories I was really yearning for more top down shooters and with 12 is better than 6 I found one. The game is great, nice graphics, good sound, fun gameplay. The story is nothing too special but that's not why you play the game after all. Be warned though, some things are hella buggy, the perks you buy disappear for some reason (you don't have them anymore and can't buy them again) and the hats (collectibles) you can find are not saved either for some reason. This does bug the achievements as well!

12 is better than 6 is a top-down action game. In which you play as a Mexican, a character who has no recollection of his past and takes several quests/missions all of which end up in bloodshed. The game excels in it's combat and gameplay. Players can use one of four weapons a revolver, rifle, bow and shotgun, each with different playstyle.

I got 12 is Better Than 6 for free, and it's a pretty decent game. The unique art style and fast-paced action are cool, but it can get frustrating at times due to the unforgiving difficulty, and the story could use a bit more depth. Nevertheless, it's worth a playthrough if you enjoy top-down shooters and got it for free.
