- UI fixes.
- Changed Glitch graphics mode to something different.
Simple retro fun
It's a return to the 8bit days where exploration and gameplay mattered; not lengthy cut scenes or pseudo-interactive button moments or so-called adventure games that are just on-rail shooters in disguise or worse, hidden object games.
You're an astronaut trapped on an alien world trying to figure out what's going on. You shoot bad things, flip switches, explore and explore and explore. Upgrades are around which help you shoot jump and run and find mysterious green squares.
Negatives would be not restarting from where you died, it's easy to get list and some rooms are literal dead ends meaning you'll get killed for entering them.
If you miss the older days of simple games with huge worlds to explore and simple gameplay mechanics you'll likely enjoy this. You can try the lite version for free then import that saved game into the full retail version.
I've just bought the full version, and I'm about to import my save on the Lite version. It's worth supporting this developer so he can know that we enjoy his work, and want more from him. Really fun game, makes me want to finish Prime and try the original Metroid.
Also, the included "mods" in the Video options are a nice little treat. Definitely a plus for a gamer who likes little bits of odd content, like myself.
Heart of Metroid
Love this game. Update fixes bugs from the initial release. The original Metroid for the NES is still one of my all time favorites. This game very much reminds me of Metroid. Solitary exploration, retracing your steps when finally finding an upgrade. Definitely one of my favorite iOS games to date along with Final Fantasy III and Swordigo. Worth every penny and then some. I'd love to see a sequel.
