Hello all! It's time for a review of one of the most anticipated games, by the superb developer Pseudolonewolf, known for making the famous Mardek Series.
Raider 1 is a simplistic, and totally difficult, platformer starting our spiny friend Arkus Zei, the space pirate. Hidden in different rooms are 4 relics, do you think you can find them all?
Now for our breakdown!
Though Pseudolonewolf is mainly known for his games, few know he is also a great composer. The soundtrack in Raider adds mystery and adventure the game, and eggs you to go on. The music also doesn't loop too often, which is something that happens to often in games.
Perfect for any platformer, the graphics are very simple and pixelated, and most of all very themed along the game. Like all of Pseudolonewolf's games, the pixel graphics are perfect.
The gameplay is really the best part of the game. At parts you will find yourself flipping switches and going back and forth, at others you will be climbing ladders to dodge evil ghosts!
Many concepts in the game were new, but like any great platformers, often ideas and levels have been obviously inspired by other famous platformers.
A perfect difficulty, that is, quite difficult! Nevertheless, the game is a bit shorter and less gradually difficult, but that is only to keep it open for the many sequels we will be seeing. Level 2 will be difficult, and level 3 is even going to incorporate icy platforms and more ways to die, so watch out!
An abslutely brilliant game, and one that will be fllowed up by sequels I'm sure we will all be looking forward to!
Now, some screenshots!
