First off, fantastic game! I love playing this. Awesome storyline and reaches back to my younger years of playing Zelda etc. I play it on IPad and yes I also wish the controls were easier cause you can’t get the dash room achievements at all with IPad control system. Here’s the thing that happened. In the southern zone, the one module room that turns out to be a fake module and then you have to fight a mini boss. So as I have understood, it is still a module right? Cause after I defeat it you go to the next room and then pull the real module. But on my map the fake mod is still highlighted pink and I still haven’t been able to find the eighth module. I have looked all over and tried to reasearch the maps but it always points me back to the fake room. Is this a bug? Should I make a new game and try again? I also noticed something that happened when I equipped the Tanuki sword once I attained it, there would be an error window popping up and the game shuts down. Now all that is said, these are all things that I’m sure starting a new game will hopefully fix but I wanted you to know about it. I am a really big fan of this game cause it’s just too much fun. It’s nice to play something that actually feels like a real game with substance and it looks like real love was put into the making of it. Cheers!

This game is amazing! So much fun and very rewarding! Only thing that needs to be done is the ability to remap buttons. Certain upgraded attacks are too hard to do in combat because my thumb is controlling movement and I have to hit two buttons at the same time to do dash attack. I’m sure it’ll be taken care of! Thank you for this amazing game! Best purchase in along time!!! Additional feedback... So I’ve been trying to collect everything before I beat my first play through of the game and I went ahead and researched where the outfits were *slight spoiler I guess* and I see that one of the outfits is locked until you can get 800 consecutive dashes in the dash arena... I’ve had a great time with the touch controls but I’m not gonna lie it kinda is disappointing that I will never get that outfit because it’s actually impossible to achieve 50 consecutive dashes with a touch screen let alone 800 lol. I hope you guys can add some kind of compromise so we can unlock the outfit! I understand this could have been missed in hindsight sense it’s much more achievable with a controller or a mouse and keyboard. Here’s to being hopeful that I can unlock everything!! Thanks again!

From the the first scene of the cinematic intro, the player in pulled into the world of the drifter, they intrinsically understand that the quest he undertakes is not trivial, but life or death. The art, music and visual combined, tell such a beautiful and sorrowful tale of the loss of a world, the fall of a people. I find it amazing that throughout the experience there is not a single word in text or voice, and yet the player knows what to do and how to do it. The story is backed up by intense gameplay, which has a bit of a learning curve but is immensely satisfying. Dashing through projectiles, swinging to kill, and then dashing away again. The entire game works together, as fighting is backed up by more intense music, and quieter scenes with softer music to bring the player back into the world or the game. It is in this amazing choreography of music and image that the game truly finds it’s own unique style, when the player can gaze upon the ruins of a metallic giant, steeped in snow, and hear the feelings of the character. If you’re on the fence, give this game a chance and I’m sure that you will not be dissatisfied. One of my favorite games of all time.

If you like exploration in games you’ll love this game. At first I was lost but it comes together after you learn the map and what everything means. It’s not straight forward with explanations of the mechanics which I love. I hate tutorials. The game is gorgeous. The best pixelated game I’ve ever seen. For five dollars it can’t be beat. Glad it came out on iOS. Play this game. One thing though, it’s impossible for me to get to the top of the tower. The game force closes the game at what seems, any time I try to get far on/in the tower. I hope they fix it. I want the new droid and new weapon. There’s like eight different fire arms in the, which I only ever got three. So there’s more exploring to do than one thought. I plan on playing this game again and maybe again. As a fact, if they fix the tower bug, I will play it right then and now. Love this game, so much. It deserves the four point nine score it has at the moment. Anybody else get the tower glitch. I’ve sent report to developers but to no avail. Thanks for reading my review.

Hands down and bar none the best game that you can get for your device. Hyper light is challenging and doesn’t hold your hand, expecting you to wander and see the complex world the developers created. It respects you as a gamer and rewards curiosity with story pointers or upgradeable materials to better your character. The ambient music is the definition of aesthetic and when paired with some good headphones is honestly one of my favorite parts of the game. Mix in some beautifully done framing, their well executed art styles, and general feel you get from traveling around their intriguingly desolate world, and you’re more than set for a unique game and an atmospheric play through. I’d say hyper light has done its part to be (in my opinion) the best game on the App Store. And even after finishing the story I still feel called back to find everything that’s tucked away. Cheers to the developers and thank you for a memorable game! I couldn’t recommend it highly enough.
