Reviews

“It is a meeting point between old game design and new, with every other moment punctuated with some of the most thrilling level and boss design to grace the genre. As improbable as it may sound, this game made by one guy not only stands up to the classics, it is every bit as good as Gunstar Heroes and Contra.”
9/10 – Destructoid

“If you’re a fan of the genre, then this one is a no-brainer, and a wholehearted recommendation.”
87/100 – IndieGameMag

“I have to tell you about Intrusion 2, because it’s like a game from my stupid dreams about games that couldn’t exist.”

Rating: 9/10
Status: Fantastic 2d Action game

The Good:

+ Great sense of action especially the first few levels. Game holds nothing back.
+Great variety of weapons
+ 3 different mechs to pilot
+ AMAZING Last Boss fight. Really surprised me how good it was. Definitly the highlight of the game for me
+ Nice length, does not wear itself out
+ Interesting physics however it can get annoying at times (objects get in your way)

The Bad:

-Controls may be a slight issue, one of the few 2d games where k/m was better than the controller.
-Because of the physics some boss battles may be more reliant on luck than skill
-Can be a bit frustrating at times.

Conclusion:
If your looking for a solid 2d action game than this is for you.

Intrusion 2 is basically Metal Slug with physics. Objects get thrown around, trees bend and wobble, and enemies wave their mechanical tentacles around.

I didn’t really care much for the physics, but I guess that’s what made the gameplay a bit different from similar games. The mech designs were cool and the boss battles were epic. The final battle in particular was one of the most insane boss battles I’ve ever played in a game.

My main criticism about Intrusion 2 is that the levels just dragged on for a bit too long. Enemies and scenery just repeated a few times too many. It took me over two hours to play through the game, while Metal Slug fits the same amount of content into a much shorter game with more replay-value.

Yea!
-Nice 2d/3d grahpic matchups
-Good selection of weapons
-Decent assortment of enemies and bosses

Meh!
-Basically just a cheap flash game
-Physics are very wonky
-Controls are way too loose

Bleh!
-Graphics options in options menu does not make any changes
-Sluggish even when running at 30 fps
-Gets boring quickly

The Lowdown:

Intrusion 2 is basically an action side scroller(In vein of Metal Slug/ Megaman) that runs via flash.While the 2D/3D graphics are pretty neat, a nice assortment of different weapons to choose from, that is pretty much where it ends. THe game runs at 30 fps but feels to be more in the low teens as everything on screen moves slugggishly, making boss battles difficult to impossible as you can not get the proper timing done.

The controls are very loose making simple adjustments tedious. Best way to describe this is to say your character is moving on ice. On top of a "realistic physics" that makes objects fly in weird manors or sends objects into giant clusters, that block you from getting that much needed health kit.

While the game is your typical action side scroller there is no real fun except in the few boss battles as I got to before giving up, due to the technical issues.


Verdict:
If you are looking to play this game just hit up the demo on those free flash game sites, as you will most likely get your fill there.

There's a section of the game where you're snowboarding down an avalanche on part of a dropship which you just destroyed fighting cyborg ninjas with rocket launchers who also fire ballistic missiles with giant mecha-snakes inside of them at you.

10/10 game would recommend
