10 word review: Great fun; loads of action, challenging but not frustrating.

You will like this if you enjoy: Platform games. Action games. Run ‘n’ gun games. Free games that are worth playing.

The good news: Controls are fine (apart from sometimes obscuring what lies below when you’re moving downwards). Graphics are old-school but varied and quite attractive. Loads of well-structured levels. Constant sense of progression with character levelling, weapon levelling, store items (from game coins, not IAP). Lots of fun.

The bad news: No cloud sync.

Arcadelife verdict: This is a relentlessly fun game, free but refreshingly devoid of timers, pay-walls and consumable IAP nonsense. Yes, there is one IAP, but it’s a single purchase that will remove ads (which are unobtrusive anyway) and give you a bit of a power boost if you’re struggling. I haven’t struggled yet and I’m having a great deal of fun with this game.
