Simply Phenomenal

This is an absolutely superb game. The gameplay and visuals are in the top percentile of all App Store games. Seriously, JJ Abrams loves this game production company and its creator for good reason. The creative production, design, flow are all superb. It’s of the metroidvania genre and has a very fast pace with excellent cadence and flow. The performance and power/cpu consumption are exceptional, even on my low-perforamance MacBook. Of over 100 purchases on the App Store, this is my most fun yet.

couldn’t get gamepad to work, but xbox controller works with 3rd party drivers.

You’ve played this game before

It looks fresh on the App Store page but once you start playing you realize this is a standard (and not that great) side-scroller that you’ve played various versions of many times. I’m not against side-scroller games, it’s actually why I purchased it but this one is pretty mediocre. Despite it’s claim that it is open ended, it’s a fairly linear path you travel on. Sure you can go back and forward room to room but there’s little reason to. The controls are a little wonky, the response rate is just a little slow and the mechanics a little bit off in some places. In one area I spent 10 minutes trying to jump out of the water onto a platform and only by some sheer button mashing luck did I finally manage to get it. It wasn’t supposed to be a challenging area of the game, the platform was just above the surface of the water. The graphics are ok and it runs smoothly on my late 2014 27” iMac, 4Ghz i7, 32 GB RAM. I’ve yet to die from gunfire on the normal difficulty but I have died of drowning at least 3 or 4 times due to the controls. There are also other frustrating areas where you’re being shot at from off screen and your only hope of figuring out where the bullets are coming from is to run straight into the other room amidst gunfire. Don’t worry though, you won’t die, so I guess it doesn’t matter anyway. It’s just frustrating. I almost quit during the tutorial as it was obvious right away that I wasn’t going to get into this game but since I spent $15 bucks I felt obligated to play it through.
