I got this game as part of a humble bundle a while ago and I had no idea what it was so naturally I went in fairly opinionless. As soon as I started the game there is a small cutscene that welcomes you to the game and I loved it imediatley from then. This game is one of the few games i can say that is nearly totally original being a weird platformer hack-them-up stealth game.
Gunpoint is a game about breaking into buildings with the aim of stealing data from computers, simple enough. But the way you must make your way through these levels is by rewireing circuits to activate doors, alarms and even enemy guns. The whole game can be made slghtly easier and arguably more fun by buying addons like the ability to use your own pistol or smash glass silently. Also... its 2D so like, platformerstalgia.
As you can probably tell I don't have many hours on gunpoint and thats probably because it isnt a very big game. The actual game took me about 2 hours to complete and I just needed to play more, thank god there is the workshop. I appologise that i can't comment on the storyline as I gave up following it after about mission 2, however from what I did read, the game gives you a lot of opportunities to choose your own path and it has a great sense of humour.
All in all the only downside I have about this game is the length of it, I do feel however that this can be overlooked with the addition of the workshop. The gameplay is original, the graphics are awesome, the soundtrack is seriously amazing and it has one of the best checkpoint systems in a game ever. Is it worth the £6 ($9.60ish)? Totally, I couldn't recommend this game more to any kind of gamer... seriously, get it now!
I would have to give this game a strong 9/10
