The Planet of the Vicious Creatures - A rather short retro styled platformer gets a demo
Something retro inspired to talk about now as 'The Planet of the Vicious Creatures' by jorgicor is not only available to buy, but you can download the demo and vote for the game via its Steam Greenlight page. Designed as a short title with little time to play such as at work totalling just 15mins, this game is a platformer set in space and you play as Johanna Brahe, the most famous astronaut on Earth. Your mission? To travel to remote planets through portals, gather items and avoid the deadly creatures and fauna that lay ahead... Can you survive this dangerous task?
Of all the games I've seen so far these last few weeks, The Planet of the Vicious Creatures looks to be a game that might cause the odd smashed keyboard or controller. It may have its retro inspirations that look more like an old DOS game rather than an 8bit one, but the challenge is very high. Each screen will require the upmost patience and you will have to learn the patterns and master the timings to accomplish your goal. You will die, and you will curse but at least you wont be disappointed in the price.
