Hello, hello, hello ladies and gentleman. I am back again with another great review for all of you. This time I will be happy to present you ICEY, an indie action game like no other. But let’s start from the beginning. What is this game? Is it worth picking it up? Stick around and you will find out right now. Let’s start with the story of this game. ICEY is a 2D side-scrolling action game. As you follow the narrator's omnipresent voice, you will see through ICEY's eyes and learn the truth about her world.
Alright, you caught me! This ISN'T really just a simple 2D action game, and you WON'T be seeing through ICEY's eyes... NOR will you learn the truth about her world." says the narrator. “ICEY is a Meta game in disguise. The narrator will constantly urge you in one direction, but you must ask, "Why? Why am I following his directions? Why can't I learn the truth about this world and ICEY's purpose here?" Fight against his tyranny, and uncover what's really going on for yourself! In fact, you can become ICEY, and let loose the shackles of your own identity. You are ICEY, and ICEY is you... if you want it that way. Feel free to keep hold of your own self, if you wish. ? To begin with, the very first aspect that really surprised me is the graphics and in general the art work of the title.
They are really sharp, unique and create an amazing atmosphere for even the most demanding players. The levels are really well created full of details and the story is not only tight but also has a sense of mystery. The narrator can also be misleading sometimes, there is great humor and adds depth to the overall great story. Furthermore, another positive aspect of the game is the massively and easy to use combos that ICEY can use during the title. There are a lot to unlock and you can upgrade each one of them and become even stronger. I should also not forget to mention the amazing Boss Fights and the soundtrack
that make the game worth getting. Its price is also tempting and there is a free soundtrack and DLC as well. As far as the negative aspects are concerned, there are some that I should mention. First and foremost, the main story can be finished within a few hours if you rush the game and don’t explore or do other quests available. Another negative for me is definitely the fact that there is a small enemy variety that you will encounter during the game.
To sum up, the game is really amazing and is definitely worth picking it up. It definitely lives up to its potential and it can satisfy even the most demanding players.
