Moo Lander is a 2D platformer game developed and published by ‘The Sixth Hammer‘. Moo Lander is said to be coming out the 27th of May 2022 on the Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4 and PC. We heard it’s also coming to Nintendo Switch. Moo Lander sounds very funny for sure. X35 Earthwalker is intrigued. Let’s take a look.
Moo Lander does sound silly but the story is sort of serious. Basically you are the last hero of a dying cosmic civilisation. You control a lander. What’s the objective? You are after milk… We aren’t joking. In this universe, milk is the most important energy source in the universe. Milk can only be found on the ancient planet of the alien cows. You aren’t alone, you have your AI… hamilton. So go find that device. A device that is said to be able to produce infinite amounts of milk. That’s Moo Lander for you.
Fly around, dodge threats and projectiles in Moo Lander. Stay alive and fight back against the different enemies on this planet. The main problems are off course the cows. The big bad bosses are the cows. There’s apparently over 20 different types of cows. The cows also have an “advanced cow AI”. Each cow boss has it’s own attacks, patterns, special abilities and ways to deal with you. Fear the cow!
We checked out some Moo Lander gameplay and it’s mostly what we though it would be. Feels more like controlling a ufo, especially when attacking a land based enemy. You can unlock new abilities, gain new weapons and use camouflage modules. Best of all is that Moo Lander is but for co-op. All of you on one screen facing. There’s competitive mode too. As in Lander vs Lander and even Lander vs cows. ?You can control the cows to crush your friends. The fact that we have ancient cow planet with alien cows who will seriously kill you is funny. We won’t be milking cows anymore after this. Cows fighting back. They have had enough.
Overall, Moo Lander seems like a good game. It’s said to be hand crafted concerning the visuals. That off course is a lot of work. Gather and manage your milk. Conquer the cows, get some milk and go crazy with the abilities and weapons. The developers, have done a good job so far. We at X35 Earthwalker will have to hear what Moo Lander makes happen. Now Moo Lander may have super alien cows bu those things are just burgers for… the ‘Earth Walk!’
Souldiers is an action adventure platformer game developed by ‘Retro Forge‘ and published by ‘Dear villagers‘. Souldiers is said to be coming out the 19th of May 2022 on the Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PS5, PS4 and PC. This game looks like it’s bringing some battles. X35 Earthwalker is the master of battles. Let’s take a look.
Souldiers has a bit of a strange universe. Not too strange though. Basically here’s what happened. You and your fellow soldiers re out fighting… for glory reasons. You all get sent to Terragaya. Terragaya is a mystical land that’s on the edges of the afterlife. Caught between the living and the fallen. So expect mythological creatures, expect death, expect enemies. Expect exploration and totally not natural stuff. Your mission? To find the Guardian and therefore more on to the next world.
There’s three characters classes to pick from in Souldiers. Scout, Archer and Caster. Each one off course is different. Different weapons and therefore different ways of fighting. There’s magic, there’s archery and there’s shield and sword. the stats are health, attack, defence and agility. We are sure anyone can figure out what those represent. Right out the jump we are looking at the archer class right now. We hope the scout class (shield and sword) doesn’t become the plain basic one. Hopefully all classes become actually cool and fun to use. Powerful in their own ways. Oh and one more thing… the soldiers can’t die. How trippy is that?
We checked out some Souldiers gameplay and it’s what we expected from a game like this. Souldiers has very nice animations. there’s multiple mechanics going on here in the combat. The Archer for example can fire different types of arrows. The arrows are on a cool down, so no spamming around here. You can upgrade your character and make your abilities and attacks more powerful. Enemies have the chance to dodge your attacks. So manage your mana, arrows and use your potions right. There’s masteries which is like an upgrade tree with mostly passive abilities to make you better.
Overall souldiers looks like a very good game. We like the environments and levels. Lots of colours around here. The enemies are aggressive and some have their own special abilities. A bat might yell at you… that’s scary. You can interact with the environment and some objects like turn a wind mill to produce wind to clear away poisonous gas. There’s lots of platforming and exploration required here so look around. The developers ‘Retro forge’ have done a very good job. We at X35 Earthwalker will keep an eye open for this game. Souldiers may have undying soldiers but they will stay dead if they faced… the ‘Earth Walk!’
Shattered: Tale of the Forgotten King is an action platformer adventure game developed and published by ‘Redlock studios‘. Shattered: Tale of the Forgotten King is said to be coming out in the first quarter of 2022 on the Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch and PS5. It has come out on PC on the 27th of February though. We see a big world and it looks cool. X35 Earthwalker has the best eyes. Let’s take a look.
Shattered: Tale of the Forgotten King is set in a big world The world of Hynos. Definitely big. Basically the king disappeared and the world is gone as in it’s messed up and not what it used to be. What happened? Well go find out. That’s the whole point. You are a wanderer in in this place. You must “piece together the fragments of reality”. You will retrace the fall of civilisation. Even get testimonies from survivors. Off course some survivor are more reliable and accurate than others. So figure it out.
Now we know you see that big ol sword. Yes there’s more than just a mystery going on in Shattered: Tale of the Forgotten King. There’s combat. This world, this continent has foes, “mighty foes”. So as you are finding the secrets know that you will be engaged in what’s described as “experienced precision based combat”. It gets better. Think of the combat in Sekiro: shadows die twice, mortal shell. Shattered: Tale of the Forgotten King is like that. Study your opponent, take your time, study their moves and get your attacks in.
These battles aren’t close range weapons only. There’s also spells. Long range spells. So there’s options but on top of all this there’s transitions between full 3D and 2.5D. We definitely want to see this 3D 2.5D transition concerning battle in action. This can easily be very effective for epicness in a fight. Angles and views makes a big difference and impact if done right. This transition can be awesome. Shattered: Tale of the Forgotten King better do it well.§ Look at the scale and size of the fight against the leviathan in Final Fantasy XV. Nothing comes close.
Exploration is encouraged to some extent. Shattered: Tale of the Forgotten King has described their world as semi open world. There’s branching paths and many beings to encounter. This is what Shattered: Tale of the Forgotten King said about their world, “Each new zone tells a story through stunning art direction and finely crafted design.” We do like how different the zones look and you know we love variety around here at X35 Earthwalker.
We checked out some Shattered: Tale of the Forgotten King gameplay and it’s what we thought it was. The combat is at a good speed. You definitely can’t trust every survivor you come across. There’s the whole consequences of your decisions and actions mechanic but we have no faith in those in games for a while now. Hopefully Shattered: Tale of the Forgotten King can do it right. We doubt it though. Your character the wanderer will progress and get stronger in more than one way. Through combat off course but also through exploration. So make sure to do both. Your resources aren’t unlimited.
Overall Shattered: Tale of the Forgotten King looks real cool and like it’s a good game. The art style is cool and actually works here. The bosses though are a question mark. Game like this needs the bosses to be interesting and lately developers have failed at that. We will end this here. The developers ‘Redrock studios’ have done a good job so far. We at X35 Earthwalker will keep an ear open for what noise this game makes. Now Shattered: Tale of the Forgotten King may have a semi open world but that’s not open enough for… the Earth walk!’
Infernax is a action adventure platformer game developed by ‘Berserk Studio‘ and published by ‘The Arcade Crew‘. Infernax is said to be coming out the 14th of February 2022 on the Xbox Series X, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PS4 and PC. Infernax is clearly going for that old school look and design. X35 Earthwalker is here. Let’s take a look.
The story of Infernax is very simple. You control a “great knight”. You finally return home. The city or town, whatever but things have changed. Your home is now “plagued with unholy magic”. So the town is cursed basically and there’s monsters, demons, horrible creatures and more. So all you got to do is find out what happened here and why. Uncover the mysteries of the curse. Oh and slay a bunch of enemies along the way. Told you it’s simple. Like an old school game.
So let’s keep this simple, like the game. Infernax is pixel graphics and old school style. If you liked the old castlevania games then you should like Infernax too. You go up stairs, jump up or down, strike enemies, find items, get stronger and talk to living people. Now there are a few modern touches though like a levelling up system. Gain experience points and get stronger.
There’s said to be loads of treasures to collect. These treasures off course have their own effects. So find what works for you or works for the situation. Like Castelvania and Metroid there’s loads of secrets to be found, so start attacking walls and exploring every hole you find. There’s a day and night cycle as well. We would like to know more about the effects off day and night. Do enemies get stronger. do civilians come out only at day? We know there are people you can talk too.
Remember those experience points? Yeah levelling up your character is essential. Why? There’s big bosses. Big bad monsters. Bosses wielding weapons. Monsters wielding magic and special abilities. These Boses have visible health bars and clearly going to take a real fight to put down. there’s shops as well where you can get useful items and upgrades. Just don’t forget too talk to the towns people, survivors and stuff.
We checked out some Infernax gameplay and it’s exactly what we thought it would be. Old school, pixels and smashing monsters. We do like that there’s multiple endings and they are based on your choices. Like whether letting that fat guy in the cloak stay or expelling them. We vote for getting rid of the evil. They might seek revenge though, so can we get the option to kill them please?
Overall Infernax looks like it’s going to be a good game. Simple old school with some modern touches. The bosses do look quite low grade to us. We aren’t scared or impressed. We also think the special effects are not exciting enough. The developers ‘Berserk Studio’ have done an alright job so far. We at X35 Earthwalker aren’t impressed with this game but we know there’s gamers who like this style. Now Infernax may have unholy magic plague but that’s not a problem for… the ‘Earth Walk!’
Unbound: Worlds Apart is a Puzzle Platformer game developed and published by ‘Alien Pixel studios‘. Unbound: Worlds Apart is said to be coming out the 9th of February 2022 on the Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PS5 and PS4 but it’s already out on Nintendo Switch and PC. Unbound: Worlds Apart huh? Not for long. Let’s take a look. By the way we are trying a new thing concerning the X35 Earthwalker G-Blogs. See for yourself.
Unbound: Worlds Apart is all about Soli, the main character. Some catastrophe has ravaged his world. He seeks to learn more about this event. The origin of it, what happened, why, etc?. Now platformer games need to stand out from each other and do something cool like a whole new or unique mechanic. Unbound: Worlds Apart has their own thing. Soli can create portals. Magic portals. He uses these to travel between different dimensions.
Focus on the portals as that’s what Unbound: Worlds Apart is all about. So basically inside these portals, that look more like circle area space you open up, physical properties of the world elements and even characters can change. Look again at the images we put up above. So a nice green forest area but when you open a portal you see more like a fiery volcano area. Where there was grass, you now see deadly spikes etc. We do like this mechanic. Nice move Unbound: Worlds Apart.
Yes, there are dangers off course in Unbound: Worlds Apart. Besides the natural environment as a platformer has. there are enemies. Dangerous creatures that you can mess with, using your portals. Remember in the portals even the physical properties of creatures and more can change. Their behaviour can change too. So you have to deal with these creatures and it requires using a bit of your brain to do it. What’s strange is that the developers left gamers a serious warning. This has built our interest. Here’s what the warning says, “Beware of the lady bugs!” now that has to make you wonder, what kind of lady bug are we dealing with here?
Overall Unbound: Worlds Apart looks like a good game right now. We like the mechanic. We like the graphics and graphic style as it works here. We like the animations. They are good. Particle effects and glowing lights are very good too. We like how the portals are not just a cool mechanic but also brings about some new ideas and ways to handle or play certain parts. The developers ‘Alien Pixel Studios’ have done a very good job with this game. We at X35 Earthwalker, the best game designers of all time, will keep an eye out for Unbound: Worlds Apart. Now Unbound: Worlds Apart may have different reality portals but those have no impact on… the ‘Earth Walk!’
Aeterna Noctis is a 2D action adventure platformer game developed and published by ‘Aeternum Game Studios‘. Aeterna Noctis is said to be coming out there 15th of December 2021 on the Xbox Series X, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PS5, PS4 and PC. This game looks cool and seems to have a lot to it. Let’s take a look.
Aeterna Noctis is another cool looking 2D described also as a metroidvania style game. This might remind players of Castlevania Symphony of the Night. It’s a dark world, castle looking areas, crazy laboratory area, monsters, swords, multiple routes and rooms etc. So many players should like Aeterna noctis. Oh and for the last time, when we say Noctis we don’t mean Noctis Lucis Caelum from Final Fantasy XV. There’s quite a thing going on here with Aeterna Noctis.
Many gamers should know what to expect when it comes to games like Aeterna Noctis. Listen to this,”Taking the role of the ‘King of Darkness’ you must help him regain his power. So basically start of not powerful, be careful in each fight as things can go wrong, semi easily. Find upgrades, find weapons, eventually face bosses and become a real power house. We hope there are areas that you don’t have the ability to access until you get further, gather new powers and then have the means to enter. There needs to be short cuts. and something mystical but flashy mystical.
We checked out some Aeterna Noctis gameplay. Aeterna Noctis has what looks like a lot of enemies. We are seeing the standard simple enemies as in they just stroll left and right. Some are aggressive and attack, some weird weapons like swords. Some are like creatures while others are humanoid. There’s even trap like enemies as in cannons that activate when you’re near it. They are stationary on the ground then rise up with levitation to attack. We even saw ghost based enemies. A ghostly knight. We love variety of enemies and Aeterna Noctis definitely seems to have that.
Overall Aeterna Noctis looks like another god game. We like the animations here. Very good animations. The standard for games have risen overall. We definitely liking that there’s multiple;tiple areas. 16 different but connected areas. We have seen a bit of the described “skill-based platform section”. Difficult platforming does belong in game types like Aeterna Noctis. The developers ‘Aeternum Game studios’ have done a very good job so far. Light vs darkness. We at X35 Earthwalker are going to keep an ear open for Aeterna Noctis. Now Aetrena Noctis may have an eternal battle going on but there battle is too little for… the ‘Earth Walk!’
Pumpkin Jack is a 3D platformer game developed by ‘Nicolas Meyssonnier’ and published by ‘Headup‘. Pumpkin Jack is not a new game. It’s already out but it’s coming to the next gen consoles: Xbox Series X and PS5 on the 27th of October 2021. We have never heard of this game before. Let’s take a look.
Pumpkin Jack, not to be confused with Samurai Jack, is set in a spooky world. Halloween style world with spooky scary skeletons (see what we did there?), gargoyles scarecrows and more. Players control Pumpkin Jack, the mythical pumpkin lord. This guy is evil. We know this because he’s following the will of the devil. Yep. If X35 Earthwalker saw Pumpkin Jack, he would kill hat evil pumpkin. It’s a battle go evil vs good in this game.
If you are reading this, you most likely know what’s up concerning this game. FFriends and characters to meet on your adventure including a crow with an attitude and a owl who has behaviour issues. There’s multiple levels, each having “its own eerie atmosphere”. How many halloween spooky environments can they come up with.
We checked out some pumpkin Jack gameplay and it’s what we expected. Clearly has an old school style design layout and concept. it’s a 3D platformer where you run, jump and light enemies to progress. There’s bosses to overcome but players will need to get good (git gud) with the movements of Pumpkin Jack. This means the evading and when to evade to dodge serious attacks and move quickly to deliver the pain. We saw magical abilities, weapons like a shovel and even firearms.
Overall Pumpkin Jack looks like a nice game. got the colours and definitely got the visuals, especially on the Xbox Series X. We even saw a horse for Pumpkin Jack to ride. It’s a platformer adventure with a spooky theme. This explains the next gen console release timing. Halloween is nearby. The developer ‘Nicolas Meyssonnier’ have done a nice job with this game. We at X35 Earthwalker will have to see what happens with Pumpkin Jack. Now Pumpkin Jack has spooky business going on but none of that scares… the ‘Earth Walk!’
Greak: memories of azur is a side scrolling platform action game developed by ‘navegante entertainment’ and published by ‘Team17‘. Greak: memories of azur is said to be coming out 17th of August 2021 on the Xbox Series X, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PS5, PS4 and PC. Greak: memories of azur has sibling teamwork. Let’s take a look.
Greak: memories of azur is set in the lands of Azur. There’s three siblings: Greak, Adara and Raydel. Two brothers and a sister. Players will control these guys. One at a time off course. Basically an invasion is going on. A faction called the Urlag. Basically the Urlag is fighting a magical race called courine. The courine are losing their home lands. So it’s a desperate and dangerous situation.
Greak: Memories of Azur is about the three siblings. Greak is the courine and so he uses magical abilities and attacks. His sister Adara also comes off as magical but possible the most mobile of the three. Lastly Raydel is what you’d expect from the big brother. He is mainly strength, even wielding a sword and shield. You can always count on big bro right. Greak: Memories of Azur allows players to switch between Greak, Adara, and Raydel at any moment so you can use their abilities to your advantage either in combat of platforming around the land. Players like freedom.
We checked out At first it is not so in Greak: Memories of Azur. At the start you control Greek and his first goals to reunite with Adara and Raydel, help them out in their different situations and then work as team to escape. Greak: Memories of Azur is hand drawn art and animations. It looks very good and runs smoothly too. That’s always great to see. So imagine the performance on the best console the Xbox Series X.
We checked out some Greak: Memories of Azur gameplay and it’s what we expected. What we find funny is that the Greak, Adara and Raydel plan to escape the lands of Azur by “building a zeppelin piece by piece.” That sounds so silly but we like different things and want to see that work. We like Raydel the most so far and his shield which he can use to even block beams to allow others to pass through. The enemies are sort of disappointing though. We hope they become more cool and stand out. There must be a bigger difference between between Adara and Greak.
Overall Greak: Memories of Azur looks like a good game. We like what we see but we want more. It’s not a big enough scale for what’s happening in the lore, like oh we don’t know, an invasion. It’s not active enough. The graphics style is nice but the graphics and visuals themselves are excellent. The developers ‘navegante entertainment’ have done a good job so far. We at X35 Earthwalker will have to keep an ear out for this game. Now Greak: Memories of Azur may have an invasion but it’s far too weak for… the ‘Earth Walk!’
Balan Wonderworld is a new 3D action platformer game, more like adventure game, developed by ‘Balan Company’ and ‘Arzest‘ but published by ‘Square Enix‘. Balan Wonderworld is said to be coming out March 26th 2021 on the Xbox Series X, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PS5, PS4 and PC. It’s just going to be a big magical adventure for sure. Let’s take a look.
Balan Wonderworld has a wacky story for sure but does make sense concerning the rules in this world. There’s magic and that’s all you need to know. Wonderworld is a place where people’s happy and positive memories are mixed with their more negative and restless ones. You cannot leave until you “restore the lost balance in their hearts”. Time for a lesson and journey we assume. Wonder if it’s about accepting the past, getting over fears etc.
The main characters in Balan Wonderworld are Leo and Emma. These two youngsters are in for a truly huge magical adventure. The weird dude we see on the front of the game and guiding you around is Balan. This magical guy is always up to something and doing comical stuff for humour and entertainment. It’s like a giant carnival after all. That’s Balan Wonderworld for you.
Players will get to use costumes which grant powers. There’s a big number of costumes means a huge variety powers. We have seen some wacky stuff but this whole game is colourful, wacky, creative and friendly. We love and appreciate creativity and it’s what we see here. Nothing about this place is normal. We like animations and graphics of Balan Wonderworld. There’s clearly a lot of work gone into this game. It has a super friendly inviting atmosphere.
We checked out some Balan Wonderworld and it isn’t what we expected. Still looks magical though. Clearly an adventure but still not 100% clear what’s going on. We know that it’s co-op multiplayer. So get that one friend or family member and enter the Balan Wonderworld. There are twelve tales. Each one is of course different. Each one requires exploration as it’s kind of a labyrinth. Prepare to defend yourself from non threatening looking enemies, jump and parkour around, grab costumes to gain much needed powers and more. just a fun colourful adventure.
Overall Balan Wonderworld just looks like a very cool adventure game. Very family friendly game with colours and magical fun. The enemy called Lance looks like an annoying punk though. He’s the one who makes trouble and creates monsters. So don’t trust that thing. Check out some gameplay for yourself to find out if it’e your thing. The developers ‘Balan Company’ and ‘Arzest’ have done a very good job with this game. We at X35 Earthwalker will have to see what Balan Wonderworld brings to the table. Now Balan Wonderworld may have a big fantasy world but it’s not creative at all when compared too… the ‘Earth Walk!’
White Shadows is a new adventure platformer game developed by ‘Monokel‘ and published by ‘Headsup Games‘. White Shadows is said to be coming out in the year 2021 on the Xbox Series X, PS5 and PC.
White Shadows is set in a weird, dark and apparently at times funny world. It’s the last city of earth and there’s nothing but half human, half animal inhabitants. Basically there was great war which caused a plague which destroyed almost all living things on the planet. Matter of fact, how the developers worded it is excellent. Here’s a direct quote: “the great war led to a plague which wiped almost all living things from the face of the earth. Or so they say. Nobody is safe outside the White City, and the birds are to blame for the plague. Or so they say. Only a shining coat of fresh white color will protect you from the plague, and you must earn your ration of color by staying obedient. Or so they say. But Ravengirl stopped listening.”
Did you get all that. This game White Shadows I supposed to be a “distorted” mirror of our world. A modern fable if you must. So you can imagine there’s going to be representations of character or events from real life in the game. This also means that White Shadows might contain some real life lessons for the gamers or giver the players something to think about. Beware of those as it’s the developers ideas and not always the best advice or lessons but it’s a game so you guys have to decide for yourself. In case you haven’t realised yet but White Shadows should straight away remind you of a certain game. Also black and white, with simple controls and messed up world. The answer is Limbo. We don’t need to say why.
Like with Limbo, the controls for White Shadows are simple and some times simple is very good, especially for games of this style. Players need to focus on what’s going on around them in the world in White Shadows. You will see other beings actions taking place and even possibly vehicles moving around. Everything is black and hits with a strangely huge emphasis on the colour white. You are being told by the wolf overlords, who are the leaders, that you must be obedient to earn your color. apparently though the colour white has a horrible truth about it. This makes sense historically as in ancient times the colour white had a very bad meaning and represented negative stuff. So maybe this is a historical thing but definitely symbolic.
This world has all sorts around here. There’s rats, wolves, birds, pigs and sheep. These are all beings like you. They are also buying into what the society and overlords say. This is an obedient you must obey brainwashed kind of world. Ravengirl (you) decides to not listen anymore and escape. The more you continue on the journey you learn more about your characters past and off course the world around you. You also gain the attention of the other half human, half animals around here. Who knows, they might follow you. Oh, we didn’t even mention the goal. Apparently there’s a resistance hidden in the belly of the city. Maybe that is also a lie made by the wolf overlords to lure in those who rebel for an easy capture and kill. Think about it. Look at the image above with a doorway saying ‘whites only’. If white was such a great thing then why aren’t those obeying citizens there trying to be white and get in. Why is the only one white our main character who’s trying to escape. We believe it’s a trap like being the chosen one in that weird movie about cat people. The chosen got sent away on a hot air balloon thing where they will eventually die. Getting rid of the doubter. If this is suppose to be a mirror of our world and the wolf overlords present the government leaders (maybe) then wouldn’t the real lose as they are going against a whole government who an army. We believe this is a trap.
We checked out some White Shadows gameplay and it’s exactly what we though it would be. It’s Limbo. Off course trying to do it’s own thing and it does stand out with a different type of atmosphere. It’s simple controls, obvious objectives s in it’s clear what you have to do. The main information and story is from what you see happening around you. There is going to be interactions though. What kind? We aren’t sure but that’s something for players to think about. It’s said that it’s the interactions that drive the story forwards. Well gamers, are you going to change the fate of this city or are you going to fall right into a trap? What about the world outside of the city? Questions are here.
Overall White Shadows looks like it’s going to be an alright game. Heavy symbolic and representative games tend to try too hard but maybe this one will be pulled off very well. You even wonder how is this little Ravengirl going to stand up to, be a threat or change anything in this city. Maybe she fails in the end and falls back in line with no hop.e We hope something big happens. The developers ‘Monokel’ have done a good job here. The game looks very good and heavily detailed. It has to be with this black and white design. Now White Shadows may have dark secrets but this darkness fades when it comes to… the ‘Earth Walk!’
