Planet Alpha Review (TSA)

TSA writes: “The cinematic platformer is very much a dormant genre. The rise of 3D exploration and a rush towards procedurally generated worlds and roguelite or Metroidvania mechanics seemed to have consigned the narrative focused linear platformer to the history vaults. Planet Alpha is unashamedly a return to the 16-bit favourites of Another World or Flashback, whilst its bright and gorgeous aesthetic brings the genre bang up to date. After a recent diet of quality Metroidvanias, it was a pleasant change to sit down with a game that unashamedly pushed you ever forward with no need to remember shortcuts or complex routes back to small pockets of unexplored map.”
