Splatoon has a third person shooting
that invites players to engage in an
paint turf war. Instead of shooting bullets, the
equipped with weapons that squirt out loads of liquid paint in an array of colors. The frivolous nature of this game is much more lighthearted compared to traditional shooting games that have violent bloodshed. In Splatoon, players can compete against each other in small units or teams known as Good Guys and Bad Guys. The goal of each battle is to cover as much space as possible with paint. This means that it's not always necessary to even shoot at the opponent. The settings in Splatoon include realistic urban spaces such as industrial plants and bridges. The soundtrack of Splatoon is inspired by animated cartoons that appeal mostly to young children.
