Voxatron Review

Voxatron is a 3D arcade style shooter that was debuted at the last Humble Bundle, a pay what you want, DRM-free, cross-platform, and helps charity bundle (I took all of that from their site). Voxatron is still in alpha and is being developed by Lexaloffle Games.  The game provides a main story (not really a story, it’s just you shooting stuff) and a very well made level designer. All of this is packaged in an amazing, retro-styled game.

Gameplay:

Voxatron features very few gameplay mechanics that are very reminiscent of older games. It features 3 controls, Z to jump X to shoot and the WASD or arrow keys to move (you can change this). You move to different levels by killing all the enemies that spawn. You move to different rooms through doorways that open after the enemies die. There are different blasters you can pick up that do more damage or shoot more. These are very basic mechanics, but are not without variety that makes the game very addicting.

Apperance:

Voxatron has an arcade-like menu that you can use your mouse with. There is a score in the top right-hand corner that goes up for hitting or killing enemies and eating foods. With you running around and shooting these guys coming at you get the retro-arcade feel that I love and the UGH when you player dies and you start over, and/or the happiness of a high-score.

Conclusion:

Voxatron is a fun arcade game that retro and new gamers alike will love and cherish for their time messing around and getting their high scores.

Gameplay: 7.5/10

Apperance: 8.5/10

Overall: 8/10
