Recently Released Metroidvania With A Unique Atmosphere
Metroidvania style games always bring a new level of challenge for many players. Dark Light is a recently released cyberpunk action-platformer. The game features many souls-like aspects, especially with the strong dark tones.
Steam Description: “Dark Light is a Sci-fi 2D action-platformer, metroidvania, souls-like inspired game. Explore apocalypse cyberpunk world full of supernatural beings. Encounter and defeat creatures of darkness which are invisible to the naked eye, detected only with the light source of your drone.”
The game is currently in early access and offers around 60 percent of the planned games mechanic, and 40 percent of the content. Players are also given two unique worlds to explore, nine weapons, 10 enemy types, and three bosses.
In the full release players can expect over 25 weapons, 4 unique worlds, and many more bosses. There will additionally be an upgrade system for all of the weapons.
Having a system where only the players drone can reveal enemies adds a new dynamic to combat. Not truly knowing where or when you will get attacked creates a new layer of difficulty, and that is the unknown.
The game is currently on Steam for $14.99, but on sale for $11.99 right now. With relatively positive reviews.
