If the graphics don't get you nauseous, the music surely will. I survived 20 minutes!
I'm not even going to mention the awkward level design, the silly game mechanics, the clunky inventory system, the ... One of the worst game experiences ever. There are better games on Steam for even less than 1/3rd of the price (9€) of this disaster.
Avoid at all cost!

Score: 1/10

Pro:
... none!

Contra:
... everything!

None of the reviews are written by gamers. A true gamer plays any ♥♥♥♥ing game he bought because he ♥♥♥♥ING BOUGHT IT. I played the whole Aquaman because I ♥♥♥♥ING BOUGHT IT. This game may seem ♥♥♥♥ at first , but trust me , it gets better. I've seen worst games out there , P2W , rip-offs , CS:O , Nexon. I've seen it all , this game is way better than those , it's really awesome after you finished the whole thing. Trust me , finish it.

Stay away.

Go with your gut: Look at it.
Hmm, that looks like crap, you think to yourself. But...I do like Metroidvania games, perhaps it's better than it looks! Can't hurt to check it out, right?

Wrong! There are no redeeming features to this game, it's really not worth your time.

It's hard to explain how it manages to be as bad and as bland is it does, and it rather mystifies me. It's like someone took a few ideas from various games, copied them, threw uninspired graphics on top of them, lumped in a bunch of extremely broken English and nonsensical 'plot,' and then finished by forgetting to put the fun in. The 'crafting' system seems extremely limited and beyond useless. The gameplay itself? It's extremely bland and unfulfilling. Again, it's a mystery how, exactly, it manages this.

Each aspect of the game alone sounds like it could be fun, but as a whole it somehow manages to be far less than the sum of its parts.

It's not even so bad it's funny. It's just blaaand. This game has nothing to offer. You've been warned.

I was already seriously underwhelmed by the time I got out of the ship and when I went for the first level of actual gameplay.... oh boy it's total garbage guys.... definitely not worth a buy, a play or a look.

GTFO and play something better, like pretty much any other game on steam. It blows that hard.

When facing bosses, watch out, u might destroy your computer, when u run one way, the guy will run the other way. when u try to duck under cover, he will just stand there, and then u first encounter the boss, u cannot jump or shoot and can only move, this is about as bad as a game as bad bots

The story takes far too long to start making sense and as enjoyable as the gameplay is, the game isn't as fun as it should be because, for a good while, nothing makes sense.

Bad graphics is not what kills a game for me, but graphics so incomplete-looking I could easily improve them myself. This game looks like it's running on mid-development placeholder content packaged in a DX7 level engine. Nothing about this game tells me it's worthy of release. Primitive and messy in every aspect concievable.

[WARNING: DO NOT READ OTHER REVIEWS. THEY DO NOT KNOW WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT]

Humanity Asset

A game where you can fully explore a vast 2-D landscape as an Orange Alien trying to take over Earth. Now I don't really want to get too into the game since there would be alot of spoilers. You have a vast arsenal of weapons: Miniguns, Lasers, Shotguns, Machineguns, and even a little cute A.I. that follows you around. With great A.I. and the graphics that are astounding(For a 10$ game of course!), its a good, even great attempt at a
metroid-vania game!

Pros
-Gameplay: Astounding. Shooting polygons felt so right as the massive weaponry I could use made it one of my all time favourite game. Even a classic!

-Soundtrack: So good that it's even my ringtone!

-Mechanics: Sliding and jumping are great, but could use a little polishing as I sometimes find that im slipping off edges that I shouldn't be sliding off of, but it's still good

-Graphics: Phenominal. Static backgrounds are great for those computers that can't run crysis on thier computers, so the developers did think of the low-end PC gamers with computers not as good as mine. Even if my computer is great, I love seeing the classic tree background, or just plain dirt. And boy do I love seeing dirt.

Cons
Are you stupid? There are no Cons. Other reviews are wrong

Conclusion

BUY THIS GAME

Its worth the 10 bucks. When its on sale, then its even better! You cannot compare this to any other high-market games such as CallOfDuty, MetalGearSolid, LeagueOfLegends, Zelda, or even Heartstone! This game is great with a powerful backstory of taking over the earth and how a lone alien does it all,

10/10 Where is my sequel?

I have to say, I'm quite disappointed with this game since I was expecting a much better gaming experience.

Graphics are not the most important thing as usual, but a poor interface settings makes an easy game harder to operate. The uncomfortable controlling and moving (+shooting) delay also bothers me a lot. Moreover, weapons system, action of enemies and main character's ability are too monotonous to provide players enjoyment.

As a simple 2D action-adventure game, Humanity Asset lacks the refinded interface, operation fluency and complexity (Lasting Appeal) compared to most of similar games I played before. This is totally not a 9.99$ game should be like.

Sorry for the negative rating, but I'd really like to see how this game could be improved in the future.

Yes, I've played this junk for a grand total of 6 minutes. That's all you need to realize that the controls are awful with crappy, floaty physics, the graphics make your eyes bleed and the dialogue is written by an illiterate child. It's littered with little glitches and has an overall unprofessional, unfinished feel.

The combination of Metroid and shmup gameplay was very appealing to me and normally I'd excuse flaws because I like the genre so much, but this game is straight-up garbage. Don't even bother launching it if you got it in a bundle and certainly don't buy it.

Game is loaded with bugs and glitches that make it unplayable, change graphic and game crashes, restart game and crashes, play in window mode and text appears in boxes but is outside the box boarders and Parts of the text are covered with white blocks.

Try to manage inventory and no intuitive key can get you out, maybe there is something on screen to do it but since the text is overlapping cant see it.

+ 1 to broken game heap.


Just an update, they have recently patched the game that at least makes it playable. The game no longer crashes when changing graphics and the on screen text is more clear. I commend the developers for that effort but still cant recomend the game as I feel there are better games of this type available.

I would never recommend this game. None of it was built around any of the mechanics it presented. Wave after wave of non-unique enemies, controls that the game was clearly not built around, dialogue not worth the time taken to type it out, and an overall feel of terrible unpolishedness. This isn't a metroidvania and I really recommend withdrawing that tag for the sake of the genre. It has nothing in common with the genre as this specific genre is built around movement and gradual character building. This game is running forward, shooting, and dying. Let's not.

I usually buy retro styled games (I won this game at a contest that KISS ltd made on twitter) but this game is a ♥♥♥♥ing mess because the character models look amateurish, The gameplay is laggy as hell along with other issues since it's launch & I didn't get to play this game much because of it's cringeworthy issues so overall I recommend staying away from this game if you hate the issues I mentioned. (I understand that most indie devs usually have limited resources & all but this game is unacceptable)
