Could it be?! Could it actually be... a good game!?
I just finished the first issue, or 'episode', and it was pretty good. Levels are kinda mazeish, but everything is very well defined so it's hard to get lost, and the addition of a compass is everything these games needed. The combat is decent even if enemies are a bit cheap, and I like having upgrades to find in every level. So far it's looking impressive.
