Antipole (Second Chance with the Chick)
September 30, 2011 1 Comment
UPDATE: Antipole is now 80 Microsoft Points.
Hey, remember my review for Antipole? Remember how I said it had slowdown? They patched it. It doesn’t anymore. It’s now even more awesome. You should buy it.
On a side note, I played the Nintendo DSiWare version as well. It’s the same game, but it’s portable. It’s also quite awesome. I would rather play a game like this on a television screen, so the XBLIG version is the one to get. It’s 400 Microsoft Points, and that can be a bit of a tough sell. But if you’re looking for a truly unique platformer, this is the way to go. It’s better than either of the Bionic Commando remakes that hit the scene, and hell, I actually liked it more than Castlevania: Harmony of Despair or Hard Corps: Uprising. It’s not as polished as a big studio release, but it’s better designed than most, and for that reason it deserves your dollars. Original games like Antipole remind me of why I started Indie Gamer Chick in the first place. And now I look forward to the sequel to this game that will be set on a Grand-Prix circuit. AntiPole Position is coming soon.
400 Microsoft Points noted that the last line was a joke in the making of this review.
