So, got this game a day ago, and I did not play a single other game until I beat it. Instead of gushing all over the floor, I made a list of pros and cons of this game.
♥♥♥♥ING AWESOME SOUNDTRACK
Imitates the 8 Bit era EXTREMELY WELL. This game does it right, and passes through the barrier that indie retro games are stale
Intro that shows off the 8 Bit era PERFECTLY
First level is great, shows off things you can do, not hard, first boss fight is good
World map similar to the Super Mario Bros 3
You can bounce on enemies like in Duck Tales
Has a style similar to Megaman
Hub world where you can buy upgrades and do sidequests
RELICS: Pretty much every regular level has a relic. These relics are a nice way to change up the way you kill your enemies. You can find these in secret areas where you find a chest, containing... a person.... inside. He will allow you to buy the stages relic. However, if you miss him, or do not have enough money to buy the relic, he can be found in the huv world, but the relic is a bit more expensive.
Mana and health system, Buy or find meal tickets after certain levels and take them to a
Gastronomer in the hub world to expand your life meter, easy right? You can buy mana upgrades with gold at the Magician near the Gastronomer. Forgot to mention that relics take mana to use.
Mini levels, these include battles with wandering travelers (Mario 3) Mini relic levels which take certain relics and bases the level off them.
Great level design
Blame nothing on the game. If you die its your fault.
A good challenge
If you get bored, you can use Cheat Codes to make a new file which distracts you from your main one. There are tons of cheat codes, over 200 of them, look them up.
Awesome foreshadowing in the form of dream levels.
All of the 41 stubborn people who negatively reviewed the game only complain about how hard the game is. Its not the hardest game ever. In fact its pretty easy compared to other games that I have played.
Great final battle, will not spoil it.
Great boss battles
Way more ♥♥♥♥
There are alot more cool things about this game. I cannot fit them all here. Just ♥♥♥♥ing play it
Cons? I guess?
If you suck at video games this may give you a stroke.
Short, I guess
??? I could have sworn I had at least one more con about this game.
This game is really good. Like really really good. Play it
PLAY IT I TELL YOU
