Today I’ll be telling you all about a nice retro-inspired game I found, Magic Steel.
An oldskool Action –Platformer, using classic design, and a simple level up system. You have 5 basic parts to level up: Magic Attack, Mana, Shield, Fire Rate, & Jump Booster.
Enemy design consists of standard anime mechs, done up as classic 16-bit sprites
Chiptune PowerRock reminicent of the Sega Genisis. This is complimented by the simple but nicely chosen chiptune SFXs.
Tight, Responsive, and simple controls.
Key layout can be customized, but the default setting also work very well.
challenging fast pace and interesting gameplay. Very fun, not too easy, but a bit short.
None Really… and again its kinda short. The boss battle was pretty easy too, which was kind of disappointing.
All in All: 3.5
I say play it and beat it, it was worth the time. Also, if you don’t like keyboards for gaming, I recommend getting a joystick to keyboard mapping software.
