I’ve beaten this question to it’s death by now, but I want to say that this gameplay wasn’t done so far in this genre combination. If you love blinding fast action based and responsive 2D side scroller that’s procedurally generated with tons of replayability, you shouldn’t pass on this game. There’s nothing out there that can go close to this and the 2018 game award of being the best action game is totally deserved.
If you aren’t such kind of a player though… maybe the mobile version will be easier to grasp when it comes out.
Thank you very much and I can only add a bit of info about the DLC (because my review was before it got released) - The DLC added plenty to the game and it being free… damn - one of the best updates games ever got: new biomes; bosses; gear; weapons; even introduced costumes and what not.
The Daily Runs I’m doing won’t spoil much and it’s probably the best glimpse of unspoiled high level of gameplay you can get for this. Unlocking the daily runs is one of the first things you get in this game and you are incentivized to do them right away - earning new gear and weapons, even though you can go to biomes (areas) you never discovered yet.
I mainly discussed advanced in-game mechanics and weapons here in their current state throughout the development of the game, so I doubt there are spoilers present
And btw yesterday a new patch hit the Alpha branch again with plenty of changes >
The development is still going strong.
