"Dark Void Zero would have been considered a "classic" had it been made 25 years ago, and today, it's a retro-style blast." – IGN
"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

If I didn't know better, I would have thought this was an 80s title. They nailed the retro look and gameplay spot on.

Absolute garbage. Even though it's in my favorite genre, this game has so many flaws its impossible for me to like it. For one thing, yes, it's an NES Homage, but the game design seems to be from the same era - dying just to restart the whole damn game isn't fun at all, especially in a genre about EXPLORATION you are PUNISHED for exploring. Don't let me get started about the atrocious platforming mechanics either.

Do not make the mistake I made and do NOT buy this game.
