The Game Fanatics - Axiom Verge isn’t just a game in the Metroidvania style, it is a Metroid game. Firstly, the art nails the Metroid look almost better than Nintendo. I bet if you photoshopped Samus onto a screen shot of this game it would not be difficult to convince a lot of people it was a new Metroid game. Beyond the art style though, the game feels like Metroid. It’s solidly built with perfect controls that make it feel great.
