Gunmetal Arcadia Zero reviews and comments

Translated by

So I passed the game. Time to write a review. Gunmetal Arcadia Zero is a prequel (I think) to Gunmetal Arcadia, which will be released on February 7th. Gunmetal Arcadia Zero-Very good metrodvania, which has a lot of moments that resemble the old NES games, such as Castlevania (here you can also knock items out of the fire, in the original of the candles, there are these damned jellyfish heads). It also Reminds of games like Metroid and Zelda II: Adventures of Link. I passed the Game for 4 damned hours, and during these 4 hours I experienced (yes, sounds silly ' ~ ') different emotions. Anger (last two chapters), interest (1 Chapter-5 chapter). Also, I would like to point out that this is one of these games, which as if straight from the 80s, Minor Key Games it turns to the highest score. Graphics, soundtrack, gameplay are taken straight from the NES games. The Only thing I think is that the soundtrack is not very suitable to some moments. Definitely recommend to buy!

Product received for free is a Lot in Steam games that try to copy the Stylistics of NES, graphics, disguised as favorite games of childhood. However, among them there are very few really good, and even less those where the spirit of oldskality is. Gunmetal Arcadia Zero-This is the game that is one hundred like the classic games Dendy (with 8-bit graphics, the accompanying atmosphere, music and other). For me, this game has become a small discovery. And, perhaps, among all the indie projects of 2016, I would put it in the first place. Just a game beats to the point and all the hundred fulfills its task-to captivate the old gamer and give him a few hours of sensation of immersion in childhood. I, for example, poured in it capitally and did not calm down until I passed (except for a sleep break). By the Way, for the game Thank you FroggY (he knows the rascal that I Love). Concerning complexity: Average it. Moreover, the main difficulty delivers the passage of levels, while bosses very light, even the last (a small secret: take a weapon that beats three shells straight, come close and shoot that there is urine, ignoring the stones and fire, If only the lives of at least three Hearts were). I Think that it is great that the game on the one hand is not too simple, and on the other does not cause difficulties strong, scaring away part of the players. About the aforementioned criteria (such as pictures, music, gameplay, etc.) will not write, as they are all made in classical style. As a reromanter, I pleased everything. By the Way, about the variety: The game contains a lot of enemies, objects and bosses, so you will not be bored. My recommendations and the highest score. Gorgeous Toy!
