Exploration is the game

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.

A masterpiece in your hands

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.
