"It doesn't matter whether your first gaming system had knobs, a directional pad, or dual analog thumbsticks: Dark Void Zero's tight action and delightful presentation are sure to entertain." – GameSpot

I'd precaution that I don't think this game is a bad game, I just can't recommend this version.

I bought this game in a sale a while ago and am just playing it seriously now. If you have any interest in this game, and if you own any Nintendo handheld from the DSi onward, buy that version instead. I haven't played the DSiware version, mind you, but from videos of gameplay I figured the PC version would be somehow better in it least resolution, but a better look at the graphics here only serve to the games' detriment; the native resolution on the DS makes it look as if it were a unique step beyond 8-bit, the 2 options (windowed and fullscreen) on PC make it look like poor mockery of a NES game. One problem I have which I presume is present in both versions is that the sound design (other than the music) is inconsistent with the "retro" theme, with some sounds being appropriate and some just being poorly masked modern sound effects, which is jarring when noticed. I had to drag the windowed screen to a much smaller size to make the graphics decent looking, and also put the sound effects down to minimum and the music 3 notches above it - there was some definite oversight with whoever made the default options so bad. If you've made the same mistake of already buying this version of the game, this is at least the most optimal way to play it.

Now, my biggest gripe with this port is the blatant removal of an integral feature: the map. The DSiware version gives it to you on the bigger top screen the entire time, like the DS Castlevania games. Here, Mr. Tesla is constantly referring to having updated your map, and THERE IS NO MAP. There isn't even a button to bring it up. You could argue that the map is unnecessary given how simple the map is, and maybe this is a direct throwback to Metroid I & II, but again, it is CONSTANTLY referred to in game, and those are the only games in the series that are too obtuse to play now without the use of a guide. I could have overlooked it here if they only removed that from the dialogue. That Capcom hasn't is obscenely lazy, and as a result, there is no justification for having released this game in the state it is in.

I had no issues with the CD-Key, but it was still an unnecessary and inconvenient step in the process further defining this version as the inferior port.

Edit: Nevermind, the M key brings up the map, which is explained nowhere and I had to find out online! Still can't recommend this version.

Looks like the DRM problem is solved.

I have played the game a couple of times (literally). It activated without problems. The game is like a NES game, graphics, sound effects and music. For the 80's gamers it will be a blast from the past. It's not an "unforgiven" game it has difficulty levels so you can probably avoid fustration (unlike with the real hard NES games). So far so great.

DISCLAIMER: THE SECUROM PROBLEM HAS BEEN FIXED BY CAPCOM. THE GAME WORKS NOW.

Anyway, It's like if Mega Man had played Contra and had a jetpack sometimes. And like Mega Man, DVZ is hard. Really hard. No save functionality either. If you want a challenge, DVZ has one for you.

If any of this ticks your boxes, this is easily worth $5.

$5 no. $1 sure. Extremely short relatively challenging platformer with a jetpack. A fun play and replay. But not for $5 especially when people are having launch issues with the CD key.

There's literally only one boss in the entire game, and they copy pasta him in 3 times.

Buy it and if the activation refuses to work, get a refund. I bought this a long time ago and on Windows 7 it refused to activate. After upgrading to 10, I gave it another try and it worked. Don't know if the OS change fixed it or not, but it's working. This game is a ton of fun and better than the other, modern, Dark Void. It's like this game actually came out on the SNES. I have more fun with this than most modern AAA games released. Why can't Capcom just make games like this? Only complaint is the DRM.

Well, it was certainly a NES game, but I can see why it didn't make the shelves.

DO NOT BUY THIS.

SecuROM will not accept the cd-key steam provides.
Yet another example of DRM screwing over paying customers.
I consider this theft.

I honestly wouldn't know what this game is like because the DRM is preventing the game from launching. Checking the support forums this seems to be a far too common problem, roughly 90% of topics are people begging for help with the DRM.

AVOID! DO NOT BUY!


Two years later:

Game finally works!

I'm usually ok with DRM, but in this case it's pretty much uneccessary considering how small this game really is, and it's made worse by the fact that the CD Key you're given doesn't even seem to work.
Don't buy
Good job Capcom

Purchasing this game was a mistake. SecuRom activation failed, and from what I can tell this is not uncommon. Not worth your time.

The DRM in this game is both intrusive, and draining on PC resources, and has limited activations to boot. My CPU usage went from 7% to 100%, which should not happen in an imitation 8-bit game, and prevented me from starting it up a second time after the initial install. What I did get to play suffered from controls that felt stiff and uncomfortable to use. Even at 80% off, this is not worth the money.

The DRM on this game renders it unplayable.

**** DO NOT BUY THIS GAME!!!!! *****


EVEN $0.99 USD IS TOO MUCH, IT DOESN'T WORK DOESN'T RUN, DOESN'T DO ANYTHING.

Steam gives you a SN that precious snow flake securom of course has no record of. Good grief, I have better things to do with my time than to hunt down idiots who insist on DRM'ing their crap to only render it unusable to the end user.

Thank goodness I didn't buy copies for all my friends as $0.99 seemed like such a bargain, instead it is a lesson in punishing the end users.

Way to go guys!

Maybe in another 20 years they will release a version of this game that actually works.

But the world will be too busy playing Call of Duty 37.

Absolutely terrible DRM. Third-party DRM on top of Steam AND a 5-machine-activation restriction, to this day I have yet to play the game, because it simply won't go past the CD Key activation screen. It returns an "invalid" error. The product is nothing short of broken and the 5-machine-restriction is a major publisher practically begging its audience to stay away from its own product.

Do not buy, despite the low price-tag, unless you feel adventurous enough to deal with its technical baggage on the customer.

PS: I would like a refund, Capcom. Otherwise, we're done.
