4 / 10

12 is Better Than 6 has good combat and a great art style, but is held back by technical issues, unpredictable AI and some odd design decisions. The issues hamper the gameplay and, whilst there is a story, it's entirely forgettable and delivered in awkwardly written dialogue. It's probably best to stick this game's obvious influences.

12 is better than 6 is a frantic, top-down shooter with a lovely pen and paper visual style

You can eventually tie a stick of dynamite to a rat, who then runs after the first enemy he sees. It's devilishly awesome.

Ultimately, I had a lot of fun with 12 Is Better Than 6. It’s not your standard twin-stick shooter. There’s a huge tactical element alongside the standard twitch shooting.
