I was given a PS4 code which I played on my PS5. Code provided by Publisher Overgamez @Overgamez_News Developer Red Spot Sylphina @RedSpotSylphina
This is released in the UK on 10/3/2023 and in the UK is priced at £11.99.
You are a Titanium Hound pilot and a kind of cop who wants to protect and serve, helping commoners who were unlucky to get in the middle of gang wars.
Abominations, hacked drones and crazed gangsters are just the tip of the iceberg you are trying to break down without full understanding the scope of the problem.
A dark and not so distant future scientific breakthrough led to usage of microbe colonies as power sources in all aspects of life. Corporations that control these living batteries development and production became very weightful political powers in the world.
Enemies are cool as all have own look and all have own moves and attacks to avoid.
Story is interesting from start to finish.
Challenging difficulty keeps you on your toes.
Retro old school vibes feels like old side scrolling game.
Upgrades give you nice options to suit your own playstyle.
Cool ability that you recharge your shooting bar by using your shield is a nice system as have to switch between shield and shooting can just shoot constantly.
Easy pick up and play is good for all types of players also nice as has easy controls not loads to remember.
Very challenging as you die very often as you are squishy.
Jumping feels kinda floaty or like on ice often found myself slipping off ledges.
Can be frustrating as trying figure out how to beat puzzles/bosses especially as first boss has time limit and can be annoying trying figure out solution in time limit.
I GIVE THIS GAME A SCORE OF 7/10
Overall has cool enemies, challenging difficulty and a good story. However for £11.99, has frustrating difficulty as you die very fast and has floaty/sliding jumping and bosses/puzzles are not explained well such as first boss who has time limit to get to him and solve puzzle.
PROS * Enemies cool own look, moves, attacks. * Story is interesting from start to finish. * Challenging difficulty keeps you on your toes. * Retro old school vibes. * Upgrades give you nice options to suit style. * Cool ability that shield recharges your shooting bar. * Easy pick up and play good for all types of players.
