What's New in Version 1.4.1
Should Be Cheaper
I never been a big fan of way of the people make games with horrible graphics. Ten or twenty years ago I know games didn't look as good as they can now. But that was how it had to be. Now it's just people who want to make games and use poor looking graphics. Graphics aren't everything and that's only part of the rating. I expected more. More story, more personality. Something to make this game more than a retro shooter. I knew what the game looked like before buying but by the ratings I expected something more exciting. If the game was cheaper it would get a higher rating.
It's not that all retro or games with poor graphics get poor ratings from me. Minecraft with its dated look would be worth the price and high rating. Why? Because your imagination can run wild and you can create all kinds of things. This game has the dated look down, but doesn't offer enough at the price it charges.
Studio Pixel does it again
If you've played Pixel's previous title, Cave Story, you'll certainly enjoy this game. It looks charmingly simple on the surface, but it's got some real challenge to it, whether it be platforming or level hordes of enemies. Rushing through this game really isn't an option, even when the controls are only jump, move, and shoot.
You'll also be happy to know that there's more to it than the initial story; Hard mode offers even more challenge while changing the layout of levels, and even after that there's one more mode to play through. The narrative isn't as deep as Cave Story, but this game makes up for it with its overall tight controls and action.
Action Platform of Pixel Perfection
If you consider yourself an iOS game enthusiast who enjoys high-quality action platformers, you will love Kero Blaster. Fun original story and music. Charming graphics. Spectacular design. Solid controls for mobile. Challenging gameplay with a great progression. Gun upgrades are awesome. For its genre, it's a true work of art.
Addressing the other side: it is a little expensive for its game length, especially when compared to most freemium iOS titles today. This isn't an open world adventure game or some repetitive game of endless grinding. It's a relatively simple retro action platform game designed and developed to perfection.
Sure I wish it was a little longer, same with all the best parts of life. For me it was worth every cent. Glad to support devs who go above and beyond like this.
I recently went through my purchased apps on iTunes and made a list of my top iOS games with 45 total. Thinking back to playing Kero Blaster literally made me smile. It's definitely in my top 5 if not number one.
