Today, I couldn’t be happier not only because we have our hands on Rain World but also because you will get to read our review for the game as well. But what is this game? Is it worth the hype? Should you pick it up right now or wait for it? Stick around and you will find out now. Let’s start by mentioning a few things about the game itself. You are a slugcat. The world around you is full of danger, and you must face it – alone. Separated from your family in a devastating flood, you must hunt for food and shelter between terrifying torrential downpours that threaten to drown all life.
Climb through the ruins of an ancient civilization, evade the jaws of vicious predators, and discover new lands teeming with strange creatures and buried mysteries. Find your family before death finds you! Inspired by the simplicity and aesthetics of 16-bit classics, this survival platformer requires fast-paced sneaking, both upon your own prey and past the jaws of hungry predators. Each ravenous foe in your path will be cunning, vicious and always on the hunt – eager to sink their teeth into you, or even each other. As a small, soft slugcat you must to rely on stealth and wit rather than force: learn the ecosystem and turn their strengths to your advantage. Maybe then you can survive… Rain World! Cool right? But wait there is more. To begin with, the very first aspect that really impressed me is the graphics and in general the art work of the title.
They are really sharp and create an amazing atmosphere for even the most demanding players. It will definitely remind of you of older titles we loved and it wins you with its simplicity. The soundtrack of the title is decent as well with some good scores during your gameplay experience. As far as the world is concerned, it is vast with over 1600 rooms, spanning 12 diverse regions filled with ancient secrets and undiscovered dangers. This will keep you busy for some time for sure.
The rain cycle is also amazing and pushes you to explore further. There are also predators that will make your journey more difficult. As far as the negative aspects are concerned, I found the game a little bit too difficult. You can easily get lost without finding a shelter. Moreover, the predators are hard to evade sometimes and throwable objects don’t really help if you can’t aim.
To sum up, the game is really awesome despite the negative aspects and is definitely worth picking it up. This game wins the crowd by its simplicity and the nostalgic atmosphere with the modern twists. What a great experience!
