“Platformines is looking really promising. An enormous game in its beta form”
Rock Paper Shotgun

“It's an addictive loot grinder, a punishing technical platformer, a slick SHMUP and a free-roaming explor-a-thon all rolled into one; brought together with attractive artwork and infinitely replayable randomisation.”

“Platformines is Borderlands 2, if Borderlands 2 was a 2D platform shooter with retro graphics”

Do you like loot + platforming + randomised levels? Look no further. With elements of Steamworld Dig (randomised mines, collect minerals of ever-increasing value the deeper you go, locate portals for quick returns in trickier parts of the map) this offers plenty of replayability, even though the shooting and platforming elements start to get a little repetitive over what seems to be a single enormous level. Similar to the level creation in Cargo Commander, you give your new level a name and the game randomises it based on that name...somehow.

The deeper you go into the mines, the more chance you have of scoring better guns, although the loot system is a little disappointing. There aren't randomised gun effects, only % stats (higher damage, firing rate, etc) and there are precious few different hats you can wear to give you extra stuff, like 2 additional jumps (yes, you can jump 5, 6 or even 7 times in the air).

Jumping feels a little floaty, and your gun has the annoying tendancy to point upwards when you're jumping up to a higher platform, meaning you inadvertently fire vertically rather than horizontally like you were expecting. However once you get used to how your character moves, you'll be zipping around levels in no time (an XBox 360 controller is recommended).

Your character can only see a limited distance around him/her, and when you get damaged this cone of vision starts to shrink, meaning you can get into some really nasty spots with extremely limited vision - you may find this a welcome addition or an annoyance.

Still, those quibbles aside, Platformines offers a ton of platforming content and that addictive, often elusive "just one more play until I get to the next portal/find a better gun/grab that sparkly bit of ore over there" feel. Here's hoping the developers add more randomised loot and abilities in a future patch. There's certainly no reason to try the demo first and see if you like it.

First time I launched this game, I couldn't stop playing for 3 hours straight. Basically, if you like platformers, rogue-likes (minus permadeath) and exploration, you just can't regret purchasing this jewel.

It's both hard and easy to describe it: you're locked in a kind of transe, quite unable to say "okay, I'm done for today". You're never really done because the game makes it very hard to stop playing: everything is smooth and lightning-fast (no loading times, no complicated GUI; you can warp back to your base, sell your loot and be back exploring the mines within a 10 second time window), so you never really find a down time that allows you to exit the game.

In Normal mode, death is not overly punitive (haven't played higher difficulty modes yet, took time to post recommendation :p), but just enough to make you wish you weren't dead, so you just basically dive back into it to get your loot back and farm some more. It has this strange "Metroid meets Rogue" feeling that will make you play over and over.

The Metroid feeling is present both in the visuals and the tight platforming controls (which are excellent by the way, it's pretty scarce to see a dev get it right, and it's especially important in this game where basically everything wants you dead), and this strange loneliness/suffocating feeling when you're exploring the mines and can't find a portal to warp back to your base and get some heal.

Kudos for the 5-jumps feature, which I was skeptical about at first, but I gotta admit, mastering it gives an incredible feeling, again, quite similar to Metroid's Space Jump.

End game is brutal. The equipment doesn't scale with the enemies, and so the game goes from a really cool Borderlands-lite experience early on, to a mindless and repetitive grind between recharging trips back home later on.

A lot of promise, but poor execution from this console port.

5/10

Ohnoes! The Robodig is destroyed and you must fix it! Or something! So let's just shoot the story and go for a little platforming and shooting and loot collecting... in a mine!

Platformines is a nice package indeed, combining features from several genres to create a fun game that does nothing really new but still feels fresh.

You start by creating a male or female character from a couple of visual options, and are then brought into a randomly generated mine (where your ship, the Robodog, totally crashed). Your job is to explore the mine and relocate several building blocks to restore the ship- and to do so you need to fight masses of enemies, collect coins and loot, upgrade your equipment and be an all-round badass.

You also get to listen to a chiptune rendition of "Hall of the Mountain King."

Platforming is nice and precise even with a keyboard, though a pad is clearly better. From the get-go you have quintuple jumps, and there is almost no momentum, so you'll quickly put Mario to shame by staying airborne and shooting things easily. Vanity items you collect can give you even more jumps and also change armour rating, weapon damage, and other attributes.

Shooting feels old-school and satisfying. You can equip up to four weapons (pistol, shotgun, machine gun and launcher) and just like the Borderlands games every weapon is procedurally generated, so you'll often find something surprising. There's no ammo limit either; while weapons have magazines and reload times you always have "infinite bullets".

And there's more equipment, most notably energy belts that increase the amount of damage you can take but also larger backpacks: You'll collect gems on your way to sell in your homebase OR, and this is interesting, to replenish your shield belts. Do you dare to try and secure that teleporter over there and chash in on the gems, or would you rather play it save and spend them to make it further down the mine?

All in all, this really feels like an over the top "roguelike" without permadeath. Your home base is a safe haven where you can store loot, shop a little, and save your progess. The mine is constantly repopulated with enemies so if you need to grind for money you'll soon have some "easy places" to get some cash. It's NOT a metroidvania game- from the get-go you're able to explore as you see fit, only limited by your firepower and skill.

And is it fun? That's the most important question after all! And yes, it is. It's a fun little platform shooter with charming retro graphics and a lot of replayability. It's not OUTSTANDING and it doesn't really do anything new, but it's a nice mix of genres that'll keep fans of simple arcade games entertained for a good while!

Ok, first off this game isn't perfect. Isn't perfect for a $60 game I mean. Some people will complain about anything. This game is fantastic. It's like a little Borderlands and the maps are HUGE. Tons of gameplay here for $10.

At the moment of writing this the game does not properly support all TV resolutions. Get some overscan on my computer but not a big deal. That's actually why I'm here writing a review; I had to restart the game to get it windowed. Other than that I have no complaints.

To sum this game up I would have to say, "Borderlands. Steamworld Dig. Contra. Terraria."
