An impressive 2D side scrolling platform/shooter, where robots have taken control.
In this side-scrolling shooter, you are a lone warrior sent in ahead of the (admittedly quite bare) back-up team. Your mission is to infiltrate the enemy base and destroy the power cell which is keeping the robot army alive.
First off, the pixelart here is very impressive. Its almost reminiscent of Helibomber DX in its style. That's a good thing. The other good thing about Coldgearz is the length - for what it is, it's actually quite long. Though, the speed your man moves can be quite slow sometimes, the story always finds ways of increasing in interest.
You are equipped to fight in any circumstance and that's what you'll need to do. The levels are all thought-out really well and you'll face enemies over different terrain, drawing use from your six different weapons. Though largely the same, there are a few which instantly show their worth: The pistol can be used in almost any situation. Grenades are great for enemies a few steps down - but they are severely limited so be careful. And the WASP is extremely powerful, but also extremely limited. You'd do good to save it for the impressive boss battles.
In all, it's quite an impressive game. The graphics are excellent, the story is quite detailed and continuously moves along. It plays well, the choices for weapons are all right there and the enemies - while drones get a bit sterile after awhile - are still quite nice to blow apart. Just note that when you reach the spinning heat-seeker enemies, you can shoot and destroy them, you don't just have to dodge. Needless to say, this game is highly recommended. Download today.
