Risk of Rain is hands down one of my top 3 games of 2014. It is a relatively simple platformer with a twist and some roguelike elements thrown in for good measure. There is a vague backstory for those interested but strong gameplay is the focus for this game. In this extended discussion I’ll go over how the game handles difficulty and items as they are truly unique systems.
As I work my way through a large backlog of games on Steam, I have started to realize that I am not required to play every single one to completion. Over the years I have accumulated a significant collection of games via various sales and bundle deals. Mechanic Escape came from one of those game bundles and as you can imagine from the title, it is also one of those I will not be playing to completion anytime soon.
The Bit.Trip series has always been an interesting and unique franchise. Very much inspired by old Atari style graphics, the previous games have always used very simple and blocky graphics. This time around Gaijin Games decided to aim well above their previous work by modernizing their graphics and delivering a significantly larger game than their previous titles combined.
While the game has been quite enjoyable up to this point, it is very unlikely that I will continue through the rest of the game. Since it would be a waste to throw away all of that experience we are introducing a new style of review which you can find more details about below.
