Very good platformer in the style of the 90s . In some places it is present brutality and complexity levels. Reminded Mario . Since I'm a fan of games of the past , I recommend it for purchase. You and your friend definitely enjoy playing it!

The game is made based on older games like Mario or Contra . The number of lives at times does not affect the passage , control a little inconvenient , but it is possible with the correct updates . The game is perfect for memories of the past or childhood . Definitely recommend to buy it , it's worth it !

This game reminds me about Contra. I like its graphics, but there are some cons. Health bar is useless, many threats kill instantly. Price is too high for this game. I can reccomend it only for fans of Contra, others should play modern platformers (For example, Ori)

It is a difficult game to play , and it is almost impossible without a gamepad . The levels become more complicated exponentially ! uniquely I recommend to buy!

This game is a mix of Ninja Gaiden, Super Mario and other classics from NES. It's hard as hell, just like they used to be.
It is very short if you play it straightforward, but can take a lot of time if you decide to pick all the coins to unlock the sword guy.
The sub-weapons are very useful, each one which their advantages and disadvantages. It all depends of which stage you are playing, boss you are fighting, and so on.

I recommend only for NES die hard fans.

Well, this game is bad just a bit too much. First level is fine, boss battle is fun, but in later levels things go down the toilet very fast.

I've managed to go to the big flying robot boss (whatever that is or is supposed to be) and then just stopped playing. That level is insane.

What's fun:
- retro feeling
- enemies
- powerups
- second character
- game is dexterity based

What's not fun:
- instant death caltrops - if you touch them you die
- turbo pidgeons (or whatever that birds are) - during some levels there are pidgeons travelling horizontally at random. That would not be a problem if those enemies were not so turbo fast. Imagine that you jump on some blocks very high and you need to perform some rather precise jumps. You jump and then turbo pidgeon hits you and boom, you fall down or into instant death caltrops. No fun here.
- suicide gremlins in level 2 combined with many pitfalls in that level - I just prefer to skip this level by going straight right into the secret passage
- 5 euros for this game?

This might have been a fun mediocre game but it's too hard due to randomness.

3.9/10 - Retro, Amateur Pixel Platformer

Price is a relevant factor when doing my reviews. $5 for this must be some kind of joke; the acceptable price for a rough pixel game such as this is approximately $0-1. Nothing new invented here; there are far better and cheaper platformers out there.

My main issue was with the controls, they were imprecise to say the least. If you want to jump to the next platform you have to really exaggerate the motion to successfully make it. There is no room for quick reactions that can save you from dying. I just like to have complete control of my character; losing because the controls are wonky is an automatic ‘thumbs down’.

I know the sequel has been Greenlit... but how? and why? Worth $0.99

Health meter is pointless, as the only viable threats to the player are instant death pits and spikes. Enemies lack any sense of threat or aggression; they just passively follow fixed patterns instead of actively trying to attack the player. Music is amateurish and dull to the point of making The Demon Rush sound good by comparison. All songs use the same riffs that you'll forget the moment you turn off the game. Alt+tabbing causes the graphics to glitch out for the remainder of your play session.

It's like someone who hated the NES decided to make a shallow mockery of the system, though a more likely scenario is that this is just the dev's first project which he decided to sell for real money, reputation be damned. Maybe one day he'll go on to make something good, but ♥♥♥♥♥daria Upgrade is not that thing.

THIS GAME IMO:

-Its a plataformer (if you are a fan of this genre you might consider reading this review or more reviews).
-Hard as hell (classic trial and error style(which reminds of classic games).
-You are able to change items to suit better your play-style.
-The developer is friendly and accepts well suggestions and critics (but it doesn't mean he will work on it tho).
-Stages are designed with many hidden content, which requires a more careful searching and learning while playing.
-Definitely feels nostalgic.

What i have to say:
This game is a surprise; Looks like "meh" but its quite a jewel. The game is challenging and requires a patient mind and skilled hand to time your actions, but this is what some people are looking for.
The lore is somewhat "hu3hu3" but is fine.
And the developer is friendly, you can add him and talk to him any time, since hes almost every day online.
I suggest you to give the game a try, you wont regret it.

At first glance ♥♥♥♥♥daria Upgrade looks very basic with unpolished graphics but once you get stuck into it, it's a very enjoyable little game. It has elements and gameplay of the old school games such as shinobi, legend of Kage (NES) and Super Mario all wrapped into one. Playing on keyboard can be quite hard, but the game supports USBJoystick and that is what i recommend. certainly worth a try if you enjoy those kind of old school retro games.
