Hyper Light Look #8

Every month, hundreds of new indies enter the market. While it would be awesome if all of them could have their own, dedicated review or preview, we unfortunately do not have the time or space to do that in a timely manner. Instead, we offer you Hyper Light Look, our series of feature articles where we take a quick look at some new indie games.


Re-Legion

Re-Legion is an intriguing RTS cyberpunk adventure created by Ice Code Games, which puts you in the shoes of the Prophet Elion. Stepping into Elions past, we discover the events that pushed the world to the brink of catastrophe, with his religious quest to free the people.

The games style, personality and the ability to customize your units to fit different play styles. Makes playing through this slice of cyberpunk, all the more enjoyable. However the experience can get bogged down with the repetitive actions, coupled with occasional bugs. These tend to break immersion and your connection to this colourful experience.

While a little under polished and rough around the edges. Re-Legion is a gripping concept, in a world full of mediocrity and effectively scratched my lingering RTS itch.

Score: 6.3/10

Re-Legion is available on steam for $28.95 AUD or your regional equivalent here.

Thanks goes to Ice Code Games for providing us with a copy of the new religion and a laser gun for this review.


Rainswept

Rainswept is a heavily story focused, detective adventure, created by Frostwood Interactive. Staring Micheal stone, a city detective with a troubling past and a case to solve. It also features Chris who re-lives the events that lead up to his untimely demise for us to discover.

The experience of Rainswept, is not something i want to spoil but the interesting dialog, coupled with the subtle soundtrack. Make for an intriguing mystery for players to uncover.

Score 7.5/10

Rainswept is available on steam for 16.95 AUD or your regional equivalent here.

Thanks goes to Frostwood Interactive for providing us with a half drunk bottle of booze and a detective coat for this review.


Incubo

Incubo is a confronting, horror driven platformer, created by the likes of Hehe Gamez. It features a long dive into the depths of Nightmares, after the protagonist drowns in the opening sequence?!

As a terrifying submersion, into mental horrors. I’ve found myself drawn into incubo easily, it’s puzzle elements and choppy artstyle, holding that interest as you go about piecing together the mystery surrounding “Her…”

Incubo is a uncertain step into a world of menacing horror, one which i’d definitely recommend to those of you who enjoyed Limbo in the past.

Score: 7.3/10

Incubo is available on steam for $9.95 AUD or your regional equivalent here.

Thanks goes to Hehe Gamez for sending us a copy in a sunken bottle for this review.


Almost There: The Platformer

Almost There: The Platformer, is a knuckle bitingly difficult, timed platformer, created by Bony Yousuf.

Releasing yesterday to the steam store for 14.50 AUD, it sports a pleasant yet bouncy soundtrack for each of it’s three 50 level worlds. Each featuring a variety of lasers, spikes, saws and wall running. All of these combine to provide a decent amount of play time, as well as variety for your initial purchase.

Almost There: The Platformer, is also available on ios and Android, feeling better as a on the go title over it’s PC counter part. However if you are quick, you can grab it for 11.60 AUD with it’s release sale on steam.

Almost There: The Platformer, is a fun little time killing platformer, with a challenging yet reasonable difficulty curve.

Score: 6/10

Almost There: The Platformer is available on ios, android or steam here.

Thanks goes to Almost There: The Platformer for providing us with a copy for this review.
