This is pretty much Contra, minus the limited lives.

@Gelugon_baat:

It could be gun star hero's if thats the case from the genesis era.

With respect, do you understand gaming genres or classes, this is a platformer shooter, like contra?

Does your comment indicate you like game or are you just trolling one if the most original games to arrive to date? (in my opinion).

@itchyflop: Maybe its blend of presentation and gameplay is original, but I am not so smitten by it that I would not be reductive in my opinion of it.

That said, I am more interested in the gameplay of a game than its visual designs.

@Gelugon_baat: not a platform game kinda guy, fair enough.

I think games like this dont come around that often, this is totally original, just looking at the boss fights and the diverse retro cartoon art style married with its characters within the game make this one a must.

And if i sound(ed) condescending that wasn't my intention, nothing personal.

@itchyflop: Yeah, the game looks great and all - but it takes more than presentation for a game to impress me. Again, gameplay is what I am interested in.

@itchyflop: Whichever game that surprises me. I am rather jaded.

System generation is also not a factor to me, but I would say that I use emulators.

@Gelugon_baat: ok, any in particular that have surprised you?

What gameplay mechanic has revolutionized gaming if not generic platform shooters or driving games as examples.

Shadow of colossus ? Journey? Blur (ps3 and pc).

If your emulating a great deal, as i have there are some diamond games through the years such as shinobi 3 from the genesis?

@itchyflop: It's been so long since I was last completely surprised by a game, and I don't hold any old game in high enough esteem - I am not a nostalgic.

@Gelugon_baat: Again im just curious, nothing personal, you haven't played much then because nothing has surprised you enough to do so??

Iv asked what games you do like or keep you interested enough and you ve given almost cryptic answers, which hey is fine.

Its not nostalgia, personally i feel you either like playing games or you dont, thats not to say certain games you wont like like these, non the less there have been many games through the years which i would have assumed you've played or emulated games from different platforms (years).

No worries :)

I honestly hope this does well - I think we can agree that MS could do with a proper hit - and I really like the art and the style of this game - but this type of platformer doesn't interest me so I won't be getting it.

@wendopolis_bruh: I'm hoping for something. As excited as I am for it, i'm still a little leery on the focus on boss battles aspect I keep reading about.

This game is art!

It's amazing that this game is a product of 2 brothers who never made a game before, blows my mind.
