Like Mega Man 9 and 10, Dark Void Zero is a brand-new action platformer made in the 8-bit style of an NES game. The music and graphics won't dazzle the senses of modern gamers, but anyone raised by Mario and Metroid will feel right at home here.
The gameplay is old-school too, with compass-point shooting, respawning bad guys, and moderately punishing difficulty. It's not as hard as many older games, but if you cut your teeth on cushy modern titles, you'll probably feel roughed up by the end of it. Run out of lives, and you stand to lose a lot of progress.
