I think this casual voxel brawler has potential, but it just lacks that extra layer of depth to make it interesting. The single-player component is kinda designed as a Mega Man tribute. You can pick from 8 locations with multiple stages, seemingly themed after their respective boss fights (maybe 30-40 minutes each). It got the looks, it has an awesome level design with some verticality, the sound effects are great, hitting things is fun, and yet the game is somewhat tedious. The combat really comes down to spamming whatever weapon you have equipped, and occasionally doing a body slam or a dodge roll. Most of the weapons have a charged attack so you can kinda switch between them for different effects. By design, this is a very casual experience which is meant to be played with your friends for a short burst of entertainment, which is completely fine, but the game would benefit from some active abilities. Now I realize there is some controversy with the lack of online multiplayer, it would be nice to have it, but frankly, I don’t expect all games to go into that direction. Hey, even having local co-op is a plus for most games.
Not a bad game by any means, it’s a bit expensive considering the lack of additional modes though. Obviously, I got a review copy so I did not have to worry about it, but if I did buy it with my own money, I would expect a nice roguelite mode on top of what it has. You can almost see a fantastic game somewhere in there, it needs more depth though, and when I say depth I don’t mean like a **** JRPG, I mean just some extra abilities so you have alternatives to basic attacks, nothing too fancy. I got those skins in between the two broken ones. Otherwise, this game is really fun especially for how quickly you can get through it. Each level typically takes 30-45 minutes, so not too much commitment. I will say however, I do not think it’s worth $30 so I’d buy it on sale; I completed the game in 5 hours. There is also not much replayability unless you missed something in a previous level, which it unfortunately does not tell you. Heh, sorry about going over the negative stuff, but honestly it’s very minor. If you are a fan of voxel games and games like these, I think you will enjoy it for what it is.
