A Micro Review™

Intro:
A Micro Review™ is a small, bite-sized chunk of opinion for games which might not otherwise get any coverage at all. This could be due to length, quality, obscurity or simply a lack of things to embellish upon.

Review:
A simple, cheap £5 Game Maker Studio game distributed by Xitilon.

Ostensibly a hack n Slash, you follow a linear top down map, chopping things up whilst having to change into another form to open doors and shoot stuff as you gradually clear bosses and open new paths. That's it.

Also, it's awful. Sections of the game are a chore to get through - especially the ones which have traps you have to roll across to avoid. Hit the trap, and it's back to the save point.

Terrible graphics, awful gameplay and bad checkpointing when you die - the thought of going back for the title updates is genuinely depressing.

Achievements:
Very very easy. You'll need to play through the full game and complete it - that's about it. Also, being a Xitilon game, it's one of those which gets the Gamerscore 1000 updates. Expect this to hit 5k at some point.

Overall:
You're doing it for the score. Nothing else. Sometimes the games can be fun, but this is truly atrocious.

  • Intro: Outrun. Chase HQ. Powerdrift. Turbocharge. If these names mean anything to you, then you'll know what to expect in this retro-inspired racer: Striped roads, scrolling horizons, 2D scaling sprites for trackside objects and a synth-wave soundtrack to drive along to at ridiculous speeds. 80's Overdrive has all of that, but it doesn't have the thing those...

  • Intro: Whatever you are, you're alive. Sentient. A free mind, tearing your physical body from the biomechanical heap you have grown from. Nothing makes sense. Your being alive doesn't make sense. The sounds and sights don't make sense. The room doesn't make sense. Rising from the floor, you take in the alien landscape before you: A building...

  • Intro: In your mind's eye, you're five moves ahead of The Dungeon. It's been a grueling trek through this particular floor, and - as always - you're one false move from oblivion. Having played the scenario through in your head multiple times, you slide forwards across the tiles. The monsters...

Never has it been a better time to be a fan of the twin-stick niche, and now is as good a time as ever to check out the reviews before you buy; is Livelock more Neon Chrome, or Action News Heroes?
