Exploration on steroids :)
I love to explore game worlds, searching for new paths and such. This game ... may even have too much exploration for me, lol. Even before obtaining any new abilities, this game has a massive amount of 2D territory available to check out.
I have felt stuck a few times in this game, but after I either figured out a game mechanic (switches) or learned a more careful strategy against a boss in a castle-like setting or simply explored a bit more, I've managed to make progress again.
This game's super-retro look and sound and its small window of the screen where the action occurs are fine with me, though I think I'd enjoy this game at least as much if it had more modern graphics. The huge world to explore is the real treat.
This game is amazing.
Though not for everyone...
If you have a lot of patience and like to test your ability to remember places and routes, and look for secrets even under the very floor, this is the game!
Only thing I didnt like so much was that the PC version comes with an useful map and this one doesnt. The map does make things too easy sometimes, but something in the middle of the 2 would have been perfect!
The music also gets on some people's nerves, sadly, cause it is always the same 5 seconds looping, but I personally loved the style! It is very eerie sounding and gets me in the mood quickly.
I dont think this emulates atari or commodore64 super faithfully, but its a really beautiful mix of the 2!
Astronot is it's own type of system.
If only the music was a bit longer and there was a little map somewhere, this game would be a full 5/5.
Please make more like this!!!!!
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.
