After seeing little bits and pieces if this quirky little platform arcade adventure game I spent a little time playing last night. I didn’t play too long before I had to head off to bed but my first impressions were pretty positive.
I don’t usually like platform style games but this one seems to have enough going in to interest me. From the get go my little guy has 4 basic attacks I can only assume the other unlockable characters share this as well. The generated maps keep things fresh and the unfolding of new items and creatures is a great hook. It looks like there is some good stat tracking as well. The throwback art style that has been popular now I have mixed feelings about but Risk of Rain’s hits well for me.
I’ll be playing more tonight but I’d encourage people to give it a look. With games like Race the Sun making endless runners interesting its nice to see something that looks similar in the platform adventure genre.
