Back in the days of the Super Nintendo there was one particular video game that was a must have—Super Metroid. The game took players into a grand adventure filled with various enemies, challenging boss battles, and most of all, exploration.
You definitely won’t have to dig too deep into Axiom Verge to realize that the developers of this title were strongly influenced by Super Metroid, but if there’s one thing I can’t stress enough, Axiom Verge doesn’t find itself just being a video game clone.
Upon waking up from a lab accident, our protagonist finds himself within a mysterious alien world. While on the search to find a way back home, players will discover countless weapons and abilities along with developers tossing a throwback to a more classic era in video games.
Don’t expect Axiom Verge to hold your hand throughout the story either, you’ll have to explore and keep track of the different maps in order to progress in the game all the while keeping in mind which weapon is most effective for the different areas and enemies species.
