If there's one thing that stands out for me other than curious gameplay is an unusual artstyle, and when it comes to Reckpunk by Damien(dlan), a strange artistic design is certainly one of them. With a release date of September 2014 for the PC, Reckpunk features 8-bit graphics with the game play of that of a platform runner. Throughout this game your reaction counts, you must avoid obstacles and move platforms with the use of your mouse and with this design it really works. Not only is Reckpunk a great looking 8-bit styled game, which would probably look good on a Spectrum it also features fun and challenging game play.
The developer has also noted that Reckpunk is currently in free beta, with a half price pre-order available right now. As for my thoughts, this is a game that is certainly high on my interest list and it's nice to know that that there are developers out there willing to take the platform runner to a new style of play.
