Dillon's Dead-Heat Breakers
Top Critic Average
Genres: Action, Strategy
Long ago, a cataclysmic event devastated the world, and survivors holed themselves up in The City and outlying frontier towns. Now, an army of supercharged Grocks has crashed into town from outer space to steal their livestock – the pig-like Scrogs.
LIFE ON THE FRONTIER
Prepare for battle!
Whether you’re recruiting new teammates or crafting weapons to use in battle, you’ll find everything a mercenary needs in The City. Stock up on items, make some serious cash with an honest day’s work, or kick back in minigames like the Hyper Arcade as your Amiimal!
If you have Mii characters stored on your Nintendo 3DS, you might even see some familiar Amiimal faces about town…
But first, ready to battle?
You’ll recruit a team of Amiimals to do your bidding – if you have Mii characters of friends and family on your Nintendo 3DS, they might just turn up as a Grock-rockin’ gun-for-hire!
THE FLOW OF BATTLE
Each encounter unfolds over several different phases – prepare for the onslaught by strategically positioning your team of Amiimal gunners based on their combat style, then take control of Dillon and get up close and personal with the enemy.
It’s been several decades since the great destruction left the world in tatters, and now a hodgepodge of decaying buildings known only as The City remains the last bastion of hope. Take a look around, and you may just discover everything you need to save the world…

I can't fathom a situation where fans of the franchise will be disappointed with Dillon's Dead-Heat Breakers. The music is fantastic, the world well-realized, Dillion has never looked better, and the shift away from predominantly touch controls is a wise decision. This is a solid adventure through and through, and it gives me slight hope we'll see other forgotten eShop gems get another chance to shine in the future.
