I never played the original, but the style is still quite nostalgic. And who doesn’t like dinosaurs? Old school difficulty, but fortunately it doesn’t cost to feed quarters.

I started playing just a bit to take a break from my uni work and I spent 3 hours in the first sit. BEWARE, it’s a deep game with multiple choices, make sure you check the shop before you spent your ability points so you can buy the right things for yourself and the ship. If you spend your points lately the game will be way more challenging. The game needs more feedback to the player and be more clear at some points with the management of the ship and the ability points but, if you are patient and spend some time with it you will love it.

Has great potential as a coop 2D side scroller mixing both infantry combat and spaceship to spaceship combat. Some of the UI navigation is a bit clunky and takes some getting used to and will hopefully be polished over time.

How do you even control player 2? and how do you even use controller?

Playing one person on keyboard is fine but not more than one so don’t advertise that you can.

Not that bad. Movement has too much intertia to be comfortable and I managed to get stuck behind a rock in level 18 multiple time - this should get fixed. Other than that, it’s kind of ok.

Unruly Heroes

Unruly Heroes

Unruly Heroes is a well made game, packed with action focus + various platformer.

4 characters have their own unique ability, for solving different puzzles and have distinctive benefits against different bosses.

The original story of Journey to the West, the Monkey King (孫悟空) fought and killed the Skull Demon (白骨精) 3 times. The Skull Demon in the game is designed to have 3 stages, Magic Design Studios has certainly catch such detail.

Another touch of the detail is about the Monkey King, MK has a lot of monkies in his tribe (猴子猴孫), and his special move is to call everyone to strike on the enemies. MK also has a Golden Cudgel which can expand or shrink at MK’s will, and the dev team used this feature for various challenges.

Fun blend of platforming and side-scrolling combat. I think there are games out there that do this better, but I’m also missing part of the experience due to the limit of co-op being local. It’s still worth a play, and look forwards to see what these guys do going forwards. This Wukong is my place-holder until the next Warriors Orochi game, or Black Myth.

*Just finished this game. It gets a 6.7 / 10 from me (Slightly above average).

It has great music, and a nice art style. The platforming is its strength, and the combat is pretty weak and boring. It’s clear this game is designed to play mainly as Wukong or Big Blue, as some of the obstacles feel damn near impossible with the other two lame characters. Speaking of characters, as you can tell from my use of the words Big Blue, they are super forgettable from a mixture of terrible voice acting, and no real story progression. They had great source material to pull from, but opted for just following the theme. The characters are also not helped by no progression from upgrades to help feel invested. The bosses are quite similar, and rather boring to fight. Lady White was the only fun boss, and she was the first one. (And Kings of the Underworld if you can count those).

I was sponsored to play this for a few hours with a friend, we really enjoyed it and will likely stream it some more. It’s got a clever co-op mechanic and the map design was fun and the soundtrack was also great, though sadly I couldn’t even find it on YouTube. We had a few issues with remote play but it did work and presumably that isn’t an issue on Switch either. Good fun :)

My Review:

I’m already a big fan of 3D Platformers, but one that adds in a twin stick shooting mechanic is not only unique but proves to be a ton of fun! As of writing this, I’m less than halfway through the game, but as a big fan of the genre, this one is doing a lot of things I like already.

There’s beautiful and vibrant graphics, fun boss battles, interesting platforming challenges and of course, a little bit of bullet hell shooting thrown in to mix it all up. The switching mechanic (switching between the 2 main characters) is very interesting as well. While this has been done before, the developer has gone out of their way to implement it so that it pulls double duty being able to break glass, shields and other assorted things.

Thank you Derek for the fun time.

777 hours are a lucky number.

This is a really hard game, and very punishing, but it’s also really nice. While it’s hard the difficulty is adjusted by your objectives. Want to just beat the game? Good luck, it’ll take a while but you’ll do it reliably with some effort. Want to get the hard ending? It’s reasonably harder, but you’ll be ready for most of it once you have to do it. Want to get the special ending? Good Luck. That’s all. It’s a challenge ridiculously hard and long, but you’ll enjoy the way.

Having played the original game, this one has yet to come even remotely close to the original and has actually seem to have added multiple features specifically to make the game harder at the cost of enjoyment. A number of thing such as the graphics have been improved, sure, but at the cost of being able to tell what’s going on. For instance, the mole people which are the bane of my existance. I have taken so much damage from these fuckers it’s unreal. They blend so easily into the background and during the “contemplate” sections I’ve cleared every enemy then just thought “wow, that’s strange, the door hasn’t opened yet.” They just blend into the background and don’t announce themselves until you’re in melee range. It’s kind of very annoying.

A promising start to the sequel of 20XX. Much like the first game, 30XX is a roguelike Megaman X clone. You can play as Nina or Ace, who are this game’s X and Zero respectively and navigate through a platformer obstacle course riddled with enemies and hazards to reach the end and take on the boss of the area. Defeating them will yield a Power for Nina or a Technique for Ace.

Things different from the original:

Bosses and levels - Rather than the traditional eight bosses, there are only seven (As of the Fires of Industry Update), but each boss has its own unique stage aesthetic as well as theme song (this also includes the boss and victory music). In addition, minibosses have been included in the stages which are a neat challenge and they also reward you with a lot of Bolts, Memoria, and an augment of your choosing.
