Launching this Tuesday on the PSN is a new game called Axiom Verge. Inspired by old school 2D games like Metroid and Contra it has appealed to me since Sony announced the Spring Fever lineup. Reviews are starting to come out and so far it’s been getting great reviews (The lowest I’ve seen is 7.9 from IGN. But that’s IGN). Lots of powerups and items to collect, big bosses, a large map, secrets and a hard mode (as well as a “speedrun” mode.) Seems like a good amount of replay value for people who like to Platinum games. What’s most impressive is that everything was done by one indie developer.
Is anyone else going to be getting this? I’m a huge fan of metroidvania style games and the price is mad decent. Trailer below:
