Steel Assault Review (Switch eShop)

Steel Assault is a very simple game. You play as a bad guy whose job is to kill the bad guys, and with the power of lightning you blow up many minions, ninjas, and mecha suits. it’s difficult. favorite, really hard. And when you feel you’re running out of ideas, your credits are rolled back. Sometimes that’s all you need to enjoy the game. Just a few good ideas that are done very well. Steel Assault achieves its goals and doesn’t waste time. In that respect, it’s almost impossible to dislike it.

When it comes to gameplay, Steel Assault is more fluid, but not too difficult, but it employs the classic Castlevania platformer.Taro Takahashi’s main means of disposing of his enemies Super cool An electric whip that dispatches most enemies in a single crack. Slow down the rhythm and attack dozens of enemies in quick succession, which makes you feel very powerful. There is great momentum behind each swing as he can throw it in eight directions and Taro takes that important short pause to wind up after pressing each button before launching the attack.

For maneuverability, Taro has a short double jump and a slide that misses it in a blink of an eye, providing some valuable I-frames to overcome some brutal attacks. Neither of these are very useful if you don’t do the time jumps and avoidance correctly, but they provide enough “fudge factor” to correct near misses. Most importantly, Taro can also use a zipline to add a creative dimension to the jump.

You can shoot the zipline in eight directions, but keep in mind that both ends are fired away from you, so it will only be held if something is solid on both sides. So if you jump into the pit at the wrong time, you can save yourself by latching the two walls and thinking fast enough to fire the zipline and catch it at the last minute. increase. Alternatively, you can use a floor-to-ceiling zipline to get height faster and a little more aerial maneuverability to better avoid shotgun blasts. There is also a brutal platform section where you need to chain some of these quickly. Although it looks like a small feature, ziplines are a really nice feature and help provide SteelAssault with its own kind of gameplay.

Well, you’ll neglect to talk about gameplay without first warning that this is really a superplayer-only game. It’s no exaggeration to say that almost every second of this experience is full of something to shoot, swipe, or rush towards you, and usually you’re such a threat while navigating the dangers of a tricky stage. It is expected to correspond to. All levels are only about 2-3 minutes long, but it will probably take dozens of attempts to get through each before reaching the next checkpoint. It’s a worthwhile experience, but what we say is definitely not for the weak.

Steel Assault is also a very bright and fast burning game.It’s memorable in many ways, rewarding and original, but we were able to clear the entire game 58 minutes.. All the content here is great and it feels like Steel Assault would be overwhelming if it lasted that long, but keep in mind that it wasn’t designed as a game to play for a very long time. Of course, if you’re a really punishing daring person, there’s a 1CC mode where you’re tasked with defeating the entire game in one life, but you’re still asked to do the same content in one gauntlet.

If you haven’t collected from the screenshots, the Steel Assault presentation is very good. CRT filters are applied in a compelling way, and 16-bit aesthetics are lovingly realized here. Just as every snapshot is flooded with enemies trying to kill you, there are always so many details in the visuals to bring you a lot when you’re struggling to survive. And there are activities.It all ends with an absolutely high-energy chiptune and metal soundtrack. Perfect Because of the ridiculous pace and intensity of the game.

Conclusion

Steel assault is like eating a bite of a very tasty and seasoned steak.However one bite. It remains in your heart and wants you more, but in some respects it’s much better than if you were given everything and took it for granted. If you like the snappy action and ridiculous difficulty of old arcade classics, the Steel Assault is definitely a must-see. It’s ridiculous, it’s fun, it’s hard. And it’s short. It won’t be offered anymore after reaching the end, but the ones here are very well implemented and I highly recommend you give it a try.
