Savant - Ascent is an action game. This is a result of the collaboration with the artist, called Alexander Vinter. He is also known as Savant.


The gameplay is quite simple in the beginning. The player should shoot, dodge and jump on two spots.
However, while progressing it is becoming more complicated. When you start playing, you have a limited set of skills, but you can pick CDs from enemies to unlock bonuses or to acquire ultimate power. Every new ability, you unlock, forces you to get used to a new tool, so it makes the game process more tricky and challengeable. The player has to collect six CDs to unlock all achievements and get to the final fight. There are a few modes. In the Story mode, you need to finish five levels. After accomplishing it, the player can try the Time attack mode, where you aim to kill foes for a limited time. Alternatively, try the Endless mode. There you have to fight with never-ending units of foes. Every new wave is stronger than the previous one. However, there is an indicator, showing you the location of the new enemies.

Art style

Savant has composed each song, and it fits in with the environment of the game. There are seven unlockable soundtracks.
Moreover, in the boss fight, it can seem that you fight to the music beat. As for the graphic, it is simple. There are nice 16-bit images, so the design feels a little bit retro.

Savant - Ascent reviews and comments

Dubstep Muck-TwinStick Permanent Baller Fruston Border sprinkler hoops with rubber cell open room character. I think that describes this Game that no one needs, best. There are no game options that invite you to Customize-and so you constantly click on "outside the screen" in a predefined Window mode with the Mouse, minimizes the already hectic Game without interruption and overrides your own Flow. Only "ALT + Enter" HELPS in a mies interpolated Stretched image. At the second Level I am dauer-abge ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ t, because the limated Movements offer hardly any Alternative Options with the many Spice. Left, right, high-that's it. The Most Exciting Thing about the Game itself is Uninstalling. Adrenaline and Pure Joy!

A very nice game, very good... but also very short if you stop in the history mode. The game is a mix of shoot them up and action/adventure, for me very clearly it is akin to a real game of scoring, very rhythmic, very technical and very beautiful. The big Scenar is that you are a magician named scientist (who is in fact in real life an electro artist) who was kicked out of his Castle by the ORB of malice and your goal is to go to the top of the Castle by browsing the 3 internships filled with enemy mechanic. The soundtrack is beautiful (if you like electro) and the game is more or less the playful video narrative of the artistic scholar. Full-bodied, nervous and rather sympathetic challenges, indulge me and pay the poor 2 euros (1.50 on humble bundle) that you are asked to access this super little indie game.

So I was almost grinning when I had the Game through so after a strange Moment of my Silence in the Room ... ... That's jetz or how? I just as briefly wanted MY review HALTEN, but I have to be "something fair ~ ..."-The Game has an ingenious Look and shows what you can still present with Pixels today-music as well as Sound technical it is really ingenious and the whole Flair fits the whole game Das The Prositive things are because unfortunately it is also no longer to say GIBT about the Game. Coming to jetz, really let's, the really negative Stuff and there's only one and that's ENORM ... It took me THE Game WITHOUT to "be able" to "be" in exactly 26 Minutes (enough-2 Minutes to read the Tutorial and get the new Stuff) to play THE Game DURCH! 26 MINUTES! If I Had tried, I would have needed only 20, that is grade by 1 euro per 10 Minutes of Play! Oo I mean NOT once as an Arcade game it would be what do you like like something of EXTREM short. OK, if you have it through you still get Modis like "GOTY mode," "Vario mode" (the Final Boss (or only Boss) in this Game means so what is totally not inspired by Mario ... Never ...), Time Attack and Endless Mode. All the same! What is this!? Sorry, though, that's real wit, right? The Game HAT Potential, it MIGHT fun but with THE KNOW it is worth a lot of Dollars, not even that, many times with old Slot Machines, because you would have thrown many 50 pepmful pure but nothing more ... I vote it up WEIL's POTENZIAL has, MORE BUT neither ...
