About

RUINER is a top-down shooter developed by Reikon Games. Plot RUINER is set in a cyberpunk world. The year is 2091. The action takes place in a city of Rengkok, most of which is owned by Heaven conglomerate that is ran by a man, who is referred to as the Boss. The main character, who is dubbed as Puppy is led by a rogue hacker named Wizard to kill the Boss, but their connection is hijacked by another hacker, known as Her, who reveals that Wizard's been taken by the conglomerate. Puppy sets out to get his brother back. Gameplay RUINER is a top-down isometric shooter inspired by Hotline Miami. The game's fast-paced combat is achieved with a mix of abilities and weapons the players can use. Puppy's arsenal includes a pistol, an assault rifle, a pipe, a Nanokatana, and a two-handed sword. The player can always use a melee attack regardless of the weapon used at the moment. A careful mix of every game mechanic is essential for completing the game. The first ability that is available for the players is an energy shield. All the abilities that are unlocked by the players can be later upgraded. The game puts a heavy emphasis on hacking. The players can hack turrets, doors, guns of their enemies, or the enemies themselves. It is possible to jam weapons and doors, blow up barrels, persuade the enemies into killing themselves by exploding a grenade or simply blowing their brains out.

RUINER reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
Update: If you want to make an Impression, you can check with me:) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MY1WwCA2Rr0&list=PLio4F_5RbmFzozzsa__uFQI7EFrYdg-ag&index=1 Update ²: Unfortunately, I can no longer recommend the Game, reasons are available below under cons! Absolute Top Class! For all Fans of Cyberpunk Settings a big must, because it is not only blunt no-there is a real Story and also Moments between the Fights, such as how, for example, a big City to explore with loving Details and responsive Persons at each Corner. Just that gives the Game the necessary Charisma to be more than just a Hack ' n ' Slay/Topdown shooter. Of course, I don't know yet where it all goes, but what I know is that I'm already incredibly excited! Pros-Super Control with Mouse and Keyboard (WSAD for the Movements, Mouse for the Spins)-Good Performance-Good German Translation, so far not only error-free but also really well written Texts! -Great Menu design. Everything is clear and simple and yet beautiful and characteristic-Difficulty level on "High" very demanding if you really want to have a Challenge (I'm until I get the first Boss done 60 times * hust *)-Combat System is huge Fun and plays Very dynamic and brisk, but above all technically absolutely exploit! -There are a Number of Skills to customize his Fighting Style without being too much, and you can snail around at any time, i.e. unnecessary "skilful and start afresh" falls away-super! -Extremely Soundtrack-Very beautiful Drawing Style (Character Portraits in Dialogues or Introductions)-There is a large City that seems to be the Base in which you return again and again or where you are between missions. That gives the whole Game a lot more Depth and Character than if you were just Clopping through level Cons-Sometimes bad Save points, for example, 7 normal Opponents in front of a Boss, when you die at the Boss you have to get those little opponents done all the time-Bosses are In the Beginning still great and varied, but then the Game with Bosses throws around only and relies more on quantity than On quality. They Don't really distinguish themselves from each other anymore, but it annoys all the more that you have to do some Bosses several times, because they are also recycled. -From half of the Game You have seen and tried all the Skills and the Fun of the game from the Combat System falls back a bit, especially because the Opponents do not become more varied. Here, it would have urgently needed new gameplay elements (Puzzles, etc.) to create Variety. -The Story turns out to be relatively meaningless in the End, unreasonable and is quite unsatisfactory. -The Game generally seems as if the Developers have lost the Muse from half and started to recycle various Elements. There's really big qualitative Difference between both Halves of the game. Therefore, after playing through the Game, I am unfortunately unable to recommend it. :/

Five Word Review: Fun, intense twin-stick shooter.
Favorite Thing: The action is pretty intense.
Least Favorite Thing: Cliffhanger is just another word for incomplete and an incomplete story is always a black mark for me. Games should be tagged as such!

Date Completed: 2018-02-20
Playtime: ~ 5h
Enjoyment: 7/10
Recommendation: I enjoyed it. Don't know the last time I played a twin-stick shooter so I have nothing to compare it to.
A cyberpunk lover dream, purified.

Full review to come later. But if you ever wanted a Hyper Light Drifter in a brutal cyberpunk setting - GET IT NOW
