***Simple part of the review***
+ Good and fun arcade gameplay.
+ Easy to pick up and play.
+ The Konami Code works in this game so you can unlock costumes and other modes straight away if you just want to mess around for fun.
+ Average graphics for a 2.5D game which was made during the retro revival era.
+ The previous games in this series are awesome
+ You can unlock and play Gold Sparkster
+ You can unlock and play as Axel Gear (The series big main dark knight villain)
+ Forgettable soundtrack apart from 2 songs which one is an orchestrated version of the first stage from Rocket Knight Adventures 1 and the other one later in game is inspired by the final stage from the same game.
+ Unforgiving bomb bouncing physics that can lead to health damage or deaths.
+ Shortest game in the series.
+ Out shined by its predecessors.
+ Horrible boss battles and poor attack detection from the player since sparkster has been nerfed in this game.
Its a pretty good game but as a hardcore fan of the Rocket Knight series this one of the weakest entries in the series but that doesn't mean this game is bad, actually all 4 rocket knight games are good with the first game on the Megadrive/Genesis being 10/10 perfection.
The price tag of £12 is overpriced and this game needs to be on sale more often about 75% off its highly recomended for below £5 price tag.
I grew up playing the Rocket Knight Adventures series, this game is pretty good the level design feels less chaotic fun than the predecessors, the level design in later levels feel like they were done on a pretty basic level builder software.
Boss battles and some enemies require to be beaten in a specific way and this game doesn't have friendly hit boxes and physics so you feel slightly under powered compared to the previous games were sparkster was much more funner to control because of he was so over powered.
Your playing as a badass cute furry knight, with a beam sword, a jet pack, and a huge move list throughout the series. Whats not to love? Sparkster is one of the most badass also cutest heroes in gaming if this game isn't your kind of thing then I recomend you play the very first game then work your way to its sequels.
