Alien Hominid Alien Hominid

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

A Run 'n gun, street fighter-esque game that isn't just about button spamming. I might be nostalgia-biased but this game still lives up to today's standards. Great fun! Technique, skill and patience will get you far in this game.
Even though you might die a lot it still feels solid and fair because you have good control of your character.
The game is very unforgiving, though, and it is really upsetting to have to do "that stupid part" over and over again. That is the difficulty that is lacking in today's games and is very apparent in this one.
Great design choices in the characters (It's nice to see that DanPaladin's art has improved a lot since this but his style is still pretty much the same) and the colors are very uplifting.
The biggest downside (which might be seen as an upside by some) is that you are instantly thrown into it. It has a very steep learning curve which might put some people off.

Overall: Still a great game for newcomers and nostalgics alike.
