RADical ROACH Deluxe Edition is an indie horizontal side-scroller developed by Decaying Logic. The game was later remastered and re-released by the developers.


Who will most probably survive the nuclear war between multiple countries, which lasts several hours? Roaches, of course! And they will fight for their survival with other insects too. Thankfully, radiation gives everything superpowers! Well, in most cases. You are a tiny irradiated roach that can now fly. But can you fly fast enough to escape the fleas?


RADical ROACH Deluxe Edition is a typical rendition of side-scrolling games, where the player-controlled character is placed in the left part of the screen and obstacles and enemies come from the right side with the players being able to move up and down.

Players control a small roach that did not only survive the nuclear war but also got superpowers, thanks to the radiation. Fly away from the enemy fleas, which are now deadly. As the players fly away from their enemies, they also have to avoid fast approaching obstacles, touching which will result in a one-hit kill, as well as other fleas, that overtook you.

The game features an upgrade system, which allows the players to upgrade the tiny roach by improving its speed, getting several lives. It is also possible to change the skin of the roach that better suits the player's taste.

RADical ROACH Deluxe Edition reviews and comments

When Trying to pause a Level, you end up in the Level Selection-continue level is not possible. Nor could I find a Way to turn off Music or Sound. Honestly: If there is already a lack of such basic Menu Mechanics, what else can you expect from a Game. To Be fair, however, I did not have the Incentive to read any Tutorials or Aids. There may still be something in it. ... In any case, this is not intuitive ("learned").

Excellent Sound sound in the game can not be turned off, two or three looped Maine themes will deliver your ears a true delight, literally after 2 minutes of play. Detailed adjustment of the complexity of the Game is suitable for any audience, the choice is given 3 (in no case similar to each other) difficulty level-hard, hard and hard. (Because you can not choose None) Plot Is Some indistinct introduction to the story length of 3 slides. HD mode for lovers of beautiful picture Mode is there, no difference. (Seriously, Compare) And the main jewel-a magnificent page "Credits", which tells the story of the hard work of the Igroelov.

RADical ROACH Deluxe Edition-not the worst, but crooked collected and infernal complex shooter. 1) Plot: The story in the game, this is a vivid example of the "arrival" of the razslaves making the game under LSD. We play for the irradiated cockroach, after a nuclear war, fighting with radioactive lice, moth, bats and such creatures. Why Do you need a cockroach? Unfortunately, I'm not going to get that dose of dope that I need to answer that question. 2) Graphics: In the game the average picture, not bad, but not outstanding, most of the locations are quite faded, in this minus. Although The enemies are quite interesting. And here bosses this apotheosis of drug addiction. 3) Gameplay: Unfortunately here is unsuccessful optimization and curve balance. By optimizing the game can and on the minimum settings go at times slower than in the trailer to it, without a strong fall fps. Strange, but a fact. As for the balance-the beginning of the game is very easy, but then becomes infernal hardcore, and passable only with extreme persistence. The Middle is not here. And You cannot adjust the complexity. On the rest is a typical side-scroller where you have to kill all flying to the end of the level. The Game can go quite quickly, but it is only if You are ready to cover the local complexity. As a result: not the worst, but too Figovo balanced shooter. If you take that only amateurs overcome the hellish complexity. Well, those who collect cards. 4 out of 10.
