About This Game
RunGunJumpGun is a tough as nails 2D Action Platformer that puts a teeth-rattling, gravity-defying weapon in your hands. With a cast of crazed characters, simple but beautifully difficult gameplay, and a pulsing musical score, RunGunJumpGun is a loud, trippy mess of twitchy platforming goodness.
The two-button setup is treacherously simple. One button shoots your massive gun downwards, propelling you through the air. The other shoots forward, destroying anything that's in your path. But there is no stopping in this beautifully surreal world littered with deadly traps and soul-crushing obstacles around every corner. Players will have to constantly alternate between the two firing modes to maneuver through meticulously crafted levels where death is a promise not a possibility. There is only running, gunning, jumping, and gunning, in a mad dash to survive long enough to die again.
The game takes place in the Extax System, a solar system where the Sun has begun to swell and devour planets. With most of the planets already devoured, the remaining worlds have descended into madness and superstition. Each denizen has their own theory on why the sun seems so enraged, but they all hang on one central element: Atomiks, the primary resource in the entire system.
You play as a scavenger, a rogue from outside the Extax System who seems to have only one goal: get Atomiks. What do the Atomiks mean to the scavenger? Does he want to scoop up precious resources for himself, or use them as a way to appease the sun and end the suffering of the system? Or Maybe they're just shiny pick-ups in a video game to him.
RunGunJumpGun is a very fast paced action platformer that makes use of only two buttons, one to shoot and one to boost yourself into the air. When it says two buttons it doesn't mean two buttons and the controls for movement and aiming, you don't move but are constantly pushed forward with the screen chasing after you ready to kill you if you get stuck on something and there is no aiming, you shoot forward when you shoot and you shoot under yourself to get pushed into the air. Each level will have collectibles that you obtain by running into and can have things that block your path that need to be destroyed or traps blocking your way (fireballs, blades, things shooting at you or around the area, spikes on floors and walls, etc). The game has a lot of levels but each one will only take a few seconds to complete, if you ignore all of the times you are likely to die trying to finish a level. It's not really my kind of game but you do feel satisfied when you get through a level and it can be worth getting for those who think it sounds fun.
Intense. Fast. And damn challenging! This is a (literally) hell of a game that will catapult you in awesome 2D "Flappy Bird" action, an experience bundled with beautiful art and music too. Definitely not for the soft-hearted, but if we have learned how engaging hard games like VVVVVV or Super Meat Boy (more coherently with this game, of course) are, to put some time into this game is as rewarding as to beat one difficulty crafted game journey like those. Grab it at that low price and have some fun!
