Another day, another review for our fans. Today, I couldn’t be happier not only that we have the opportunity to review it but also that we are going to present why this title is as cool as it sounds! But what is this game? Is it worth the hype? Should you pick it up when available?
Stick around and you will find out now. Let’s start by mentioning a few things about the game itself. As Doctor Omega and his mutant armies march toward world domination, only a few brave freedom fighters stand in his way. Omega Strike is a metroidvania game with a huge, open-ended world and multiple playable characters. Defeat deadly enemies and learn new abilities for your heroes.
Explore the world, find its hidden treasures and upgrade your weapons in order to defeat Doctor Omega and his evil henchmen. I know I know, it sounds simple but believe it isn’t. To begin with, the very first aspect that really impressed me is the graphics and in general the amazing artwork. They are really sharp and create an amazing atmosphere for even the most demanding players. The world is also really enormous with seven unique areas and a lot of hidden treasures to discover during your journeys.
As far as the enemies are concerned, there are 45 different types and around 12 bosses to defeat so expect to get yourself busy trying to find a good strategy in order to defeat them and pass the stage. I should also not forget to mention that there are three different heroes to choose from and you can switch anytime during battles. Story is also really promising. As far as the negative aspects are concerned, I should that sometimes the levels seem repetitive regarding the enemies you face and you can easily get lost as well. It would be great if the minimap was in the game screen.
To sum up, the game is really amazing despite the negative aspects and is definitely worth picking it up. The game is really enjoyable and kept me busy for hours. It’s an instant classic!
