Xeodrifter is a rather short, but excellent metroid-like indie game. Not too easy, but not too difficult either, you'll definitely get your money's worth depending on how fast you play it (so, how skilled you are at platforming, memoizing patterns and mastering all of this game's mechanics) . The gameplay itself is really fun. You kill bosses, get items and power-ups in order to repair your ship enough so you can get back home. The environment and graphics are done in a very stylish pixel design and the background music fits in with the game's theme and makes it that much more enjoyable to play. The level of difficulty is very well adjusted but still, it's not for people who are new to this type of game I recommend it wholeheartedly. A must have for any Megaman or Metroid fan.
It is a really enjoyable platformer.The story is short,I finished it in 2 hours but those hours were great,Xeodrifter is a nice metroid-like game.The style of pixel graphics is great too and there are lots of upgrades hidden throughout the game,difficulty is fairly balanced.The only major con of this game is that it does not have full controller support.All in all a great experience and definitely worth picking up,it is even better if you are a fan of metroid-like games.
Beside the interesting and nice atmosphere, this game has nothing else to give. I wonder how the game could ever be $9.99. Fighting the same boss every time you get to the end is not fun at all. In L4D2, you fight the tank always, but that's not the same. This game is, from being pixel-styled to the fact that it's as short as the life of a butterfly. A lot improvement does this need, but, I am not the developer so I can't do much against it.
A good platformer which has its cons and pros. It has a nice underwater effects, good designs and enemies are easy to understand, bright colorful artwork and overall great mood and atmosphere. It doesn't have a controller support tho. Anyway, to the game's game-play. You have 4 planets to explore, where you have a checkpoint before bosses. One thing to keep in mind is that your health doesn't recover when you die. You have to make it all the way back to your ship if you want to recover. Also, you have one big leap, nothing special about jumping. Overall, it's fine.
