This game is an action-filled, ♥♥♥♥ing delight. My right index finger hurts more than any intense weekend filled with crazy, competitive Diablo II.

Noitu Love 2 is an extremely fast-paced arcade beat-em-up—god-fighter—robot-destroyer platforming game. This ♥♥♥♥ing game is so good you'll want to kiss a swan. These controls are so freaking tight—the precision makes for amazing combat.

Do you like Mischief Makers? Do you like Gunstar Heroes? Do you like Alien Soldier? Do you happen to enjoy highly-rasterized cult classics with fast movement and faster combat (Treasure games)? If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, then pick up Noitu Love 2. Each one of your punches and kicks resonates with that distinctive crunch and pop that calls pixel art games home, while an unrelenting lo-fi keyboard soundtrack and and screen-filling explosions whenever anything blows up (there's hardly a moment where something isn't blowing up) seal the aesthetic deal. It's very satisfying when all's said and done. Good game for speedrunning if you're into that, too, since the entire game is built on that very concept.

HOLY CRAP! This game is everything that I've been looking for! It's kind of like Gunstar Heroes....and I don't want to say it's better, but it does things differently and it is on par with that glorious masterpeice. 10/10 would recommend to ANYONE. If you have ANY doubts about this game, I can assure you can't go wrong!

Noitu Love 2: Devolution is a great game in my opinion. It is created by Joakim Sandberg, whose art in this game you might recognise from various WayForward titles such as the Shantae games. The art is really well done and adds a lot to the game and certainly makes it unique - you should really look around as you play, there's a lot of great background art also.

As for the gameplay, it's very unique and fast paced. It primarily specializes in melee combat, which you control with the mouse cursor and can grapple onto most enemies and switch between them to quickly chain combos together. This can lead to a lot of fun and variation in the combat and this shines in bosses - most of which encourage you to use new techniques and will the levels leading up to the bosses will slowly introduce you to new mechanics. However this isn't always good because some of these mechanics (such as on Level 4) are only used for that level specifically and are sadly not present from that point onwards, which is a shame as it would switch up the combat, which I thought could have been quite interesting to see.

I personally didn't think that the music in the game was anything special, but by no means is it bad (however I did think that it was a bit boring and repetitive at times). The game reminds me of a lot of games by Treasure (creators of Gunstar Heroes, Alien Soldier, etc.) in many ways and those of you who enjoy those sort of games should definitely give this game a go.

Unfortunately the screen resolution can be something of a problem depending on your native resolution, as the game doesn't come with an automatic screen setting that will adjust the screen to what size your monitor is as best it can (present in games such as VVVVVV), but it does come with many options. Personally I couldn't stand it on fullscreen mode as my monitor is 1360x768 natively and part of the screen on the top and bottom were cut out. I had to play the game in windowed mode and even then some of the screen at the bottom was missing as it was in my taskbar. This led to me sometimes clicking on the dekstop as the game is mouse based for combat and doesn't restrict the mouse to that window. This wasn't much of a problem if you don't have any other windows open underneath the game's window.

Other than a few problems, this game is very good and I highly recommend it if you want a decent platformer that has a lot of replay value, speedrunning, and much more. As a side-note, if you want to play the first game you can get it absolutely free from the developer's website. It's not necessary to play it first but I'd recommend playing it at some point! Here's a link, have fun with both games, and I hope that this review has helped you! :) http://www.konjak.org/index.php?folder=4&file=7

fast intense action with unique controls, gorgeous grafics, catchy soundtrack, tons of fun and wacky boss fights. What else can you ask from an action platformer? Great throwback to games made by Treasure (Alien Soldier, Gunstar Heroes and Dynamite Headdy). 10/10

Imagine you spent your entire day playing Gunstar Heroes. You go to sleep and dream of a game that looks like Gunstar Heroes, but has mouse and keyboard based controls. Also the game is considerably more sexualized than its source material, as dreams so frequently are.

That game you dreamt of is called Noitu Love 2: Devolution.

BONUS: My girlfriend asked if I downloaded an H-game when she saw the title screen.

Most amazing 12MB on the internet!

Seriously, If you like fast paced 2D action games, you will adore this game. Controls are quite innovative - they take advantage of mouse & keyboard setup and create a beat'em-up game that works suprisingly well. Bosses in this game show up at killer rate and each one of them is pretty imaginative and fun to fight. Graphics are also solid. 16-bit feel is present here.

There are only two hickups. Firstly, one level forces you to use unique weapon and game is not that good in explaining how it exacly works. This can lead to few deaths before you eventually get that devs wanted you to do. Secondly, title is little on the short side, but fortunetly unlockable playable characters make up for it.

If you are looking for Hidden Indie Gem on Steam, this is it! Noitu Love 2 is a awesome game, worth your time and money.

If ever there were a love letter written to 1990's era Treasure, Noitu Love 2 is it. Frantic, fast, furious, and fun. It can take a bit to come to grips with the unique control scheme, but once you've spent some time in the tutorial and gotten mastery of a few stages under your belt, you'll be up to speed and zip around the screen causing all manners of chaos.

The game features an incredible amount of variety packed into its arcade length. There's no shortage of stage gimmicks and unique fodder enemies to pound away on, and how could you forget the positively over-the-top boss encounters, which will push your dexterity to the limit and require a good bit of thought to truly best.

Noitu Love's difficulty is also balanced very well. Each of the game's difficulties suits a range of player skill levels, and advancing to a higher difficulty level doesn't only make enemies hit harder, they also have a few new tricks up their sleeve which keep things fresh and interesting. It's far from punishing like a lot of 2D platformers and action games these days tend to be, but you will be tested and failure only leads to more learning.

Add a couple unlockable playable characters with some fun stage variations between them on top and you've got an amazingly solid little package just eager for lovers of frantic old-school games to take hold of and enjoy.

The most clever and brilliant indie game I have ever played and also one of the most original games I've ever played. When I first saw this it looked like a gunstar heroes ripoff but I was dead wrong. This game is so worth your money.

Awesome, intense 16-bit-esque platformer. And it comes with a pretty original mouse-oriented control scheme too; style reminds me of those Treasure games on the Mega Drive.

I bought this on a little bit a whim, and I was not dissapointed. It's a truckload of fun. It's exceptionally fast-paced and crazy-- in a good way.

Also, you can play as Mr. Almond, whose gameplay revolves around sliding around on his belly and being dragged around helplessly by your cursor. It's a sight to behold.

Noitu Love 2: Devolution - отличный экшен-файтинг с разнообразным old school'ным геймплеем - кучи монстров, прыжки, кувырки, боссы и спец удары, а также удобным управлением и интересным сюжетом. В игре 7 уровней, 3 режима игры, 3 уровня сложности и множество секретов, шикарная пиксельная графика в стиле 8-битных консолей, проработанная анимация, динамичный саундтрек и система рейтингов для каждого уровня.

Noitu Love 2: Devolution is short and sweet, like many of my favorite games. The length is just right to finish it in one session, and come away feeling satisfied. The combat flows extremely smoothly, and while the amount of things going on the screen might be a bit overwhelming to some, with a bit of practice, figuring out what to do becomes a matter of picking up on signals. The pixel style and colors of the game complement each other greatly, leaving behind fun atmospheres that are easily differentiated and nice to look at. The characters are all unique, and their personality is shown despite their simplicity. The pace of the game may leave you wanting to see stills of certain scenes, as things happen so quickly. If you enjoy short games with a basic plot, but wonderful game-play and scenery to back it up, I'd recommend you spend the $5 on this game.

The game's style, combat and most of its music is memorable in a way that is hardly found nowadays in the plethora of games in the indie market. Regardless, Noitu Love 2: Devolution stands well beyond a lot of its competition for its vibrant colors, boss designs, and replayability. This is a game that is worth more than what you are paying for it at its highest price, and should be praised directly for its ability to use different combat system successfully on its own merit. While this game lacks the polish of a triple-A game, Noitu Love 2 provides a certain action, mouse-clicky itch of mine that has not been sated in a long time.
