Full review

Blade Assault is an exceptional 2D action rogue-lite platformer that offers a captivating gameplay experience in a desolate sci-fi world. Set after the catastrophic Red Stone War, the game presents a divided world consisting of mutant-infested outside grounds, the Undercity as a refuge from mutants, and the opulent sky city of Esperanza ruled by corrupt military forces.

As part of the resistance force in the Undercity, players embark on a thrilling journey to bring justice to Esperanza's corrupt military. The game's pixel art is truly remarkable and adds to its immersive atmosphere. The intricate level designs showcase creativity and attention to detail, providing players with visually stunning backdrops for their adventures.

The gameplay mechanics are addictive and enjoyable. With tight controls and responsive movements, players can engage in fast-paced combat against hordes of enemies. Your character's weapon choices play an essential role here – you'll find transformable weapons that can be further customized with randomly appearing "Cores" and "Transform Upgrades". This allows for diverse playstyles and strategic decision-making during each run.

The combat itself is satisfyingly swift-paced; you'll need quick reflexes to dodge enemy attacks by dashing around while launching your own projectiles or engaging enemies up close with precise slashes. Depending on your chosen cores and upgrades, every attack feels unique while offering ample room for personalization according to your preferred playing style.

In addition to exhilarating combat sequences, Blade Assault introduces NPCs along your quest who reward you with upgrades that unlock unique powers throughout your adventure; this adds depth to character progression over time.

The challenging boss fights are another highlight of this game; they test both your skills developed during regular encounters as well as require quick thinking on-the-go amidst intense battles against powerful adversaries. These moments provide adrenaline-pumping excitement!

All in all, Blade Assault's awe-inspiring pixel art, addictive and fun gameplay, creatively designed levels, challenging boss fights, and the opportunity for personal progression make it an absolute must-play. With hours of fast-paced fun awaiting you in this action-packed rogue-lite platformer, don't miss out on the opportunity to jump into this thrilling sci-fi adventure!
