About The Game
Iko is an aspiring yet hopeful warrior exploring the land and sky to reunite a series of floating islands. With his rickety airship, he must travel from island to island in order to reignite each one’s magnetic core while fighting off the many adversaries standing in his way. Islets is a surprisingly wholesome metroidvania about making connections with the people around you. By reuniting the islands and befriending a cast of charming characters, the world expands and reveals new parts of each area for Iko to explore. Scour every nook and cranny in order to collect the many upgrades hidden around this world and face its numerous hidden challenges! After watching the trailer on reddit, I thought the game was a late April Fools hollow knight ripoff joke. (First boss? showcased and the map) Checked the comments and re-watched the trailer, then I found the game on steam. It is a real game, and it’s not a joke. There is polish that would make a rusty ship buried under the ocean shine like a hi-beam.
Islets is cute, charming, and fun. It’s also brutal to players who rush new encounters. It meets and surpasses conventions in many ways, and has enough surprises to keep me engaged throughout this little journey. The art style is paired perfectly with the musical score, and traversing the environment never feels like a chore. I did find a bug, notably a room full of bugs that managed to glitch their way under the floor(Instead of poofing to the top of the room) and required me re-doing that section, but I got more money for the effort, and the trek is never really long from savepoints to where you are needed. I’m always going to be impressed when a single dev makes a game of this level on Steam, and Islets isn’t an exception. There’s some good mixups of certain elements of the metroidvania genre, as upgrade pieces being random and actually having some heft to them is pretty cool to see, and there is a cuteness factor to the game, having simple yet eye-appealing designs that feel influenced by creative media like Studio Gibli, but just not having the same level of man power behind it. There’s a speed that the game has for veterans of the genre that surprised me as it felt like it was almost designed to speedrun, with gaining speed with movement seemingly being present. There’s no one design element that feels like it’s really lacking in terms of the overall package for the type of game that Islets is going for. This is not trying to be a difficult or over the top metroidvania, and for some it’s definitely not a game that’s going to be for them.
What a charming little game! It’s got a wonderful aesthetic and rock solid gameplay. Movement can feel a bit floaty at times, but it’s a rewarding Metroidvania with a lot to recommend. The core understanding of gameplay design honestly rivals Hollow Knight in terms of the sheer strength of the fundamentals. Levels are laid out intuitively, hazards are well signposted, and exploration is subtly encouraged through the structure of the world, and rewarded. The combat also has a firm grasp on what makes a 2D game like this fun. It even has a feature which I will trumpet to the stars, one I’ve never seen in any similar game: your sword attack is very fast, and pushes the player character forward just a bit with each swing. In a move of absolute brilliance, the developers made it so that you do not take contact damage when your character moves forward while swinging their sword, so you can attack enemies as fast as you want while right next to them, and not take damage merely for touching them. Incredible feature. Other Metroidvania developers, please take notes!
